Volunteer With The SFNA!
Volunteers are the backbone of every neighborhood association. Give a little time and effort, meet your neighbors, and your neighborhood becomes a better place to live. The Sherwood Forest Neighborhood Association needs a Treasurer, Beautification committee chairperson, a Social committee chairperson, and a Membership committee chairperson! We need block captains! These positions only require a few hours of your time per year. They look good on a resume! Come to a general meeting to see what's what, talk to your neighbors, and see what you can do to get involved in the community.
