Spring has sprung and the Arboretum is in full bloom! The May Arboretum Newsletter is at

An Arboretum Endowment Fund has been established which will allow the Arboretum to continue to be cared for and remain a jewel in our neighborhood. More information about the Endowment is available at

SFNA Block Party May 18!
SFNA will be hosting a Block Party on Robin Hood Court from 4-7pm. Chicken wings will be provided along with tea. Everyone is asked to provide a covered dish, side dish or snack. Plates, utensils, cups and napkins will be provided. People are also encouraged to BYOB. Bring you own lawn chairs.

Granny's Got a Gig will perform for the first half of the party. During the second half of the party, music will be provided by Chris Lee who plays a wide range of traditional and contemporary music on steel drums.

In case of rain, the party will not be held.

Contact Ashley Norton at or call her at 799-7904 to volunteer or for more information.

Sherwood Forest Neighborhood Co-op
SFNA is working on neighborhood co-operative buying arrangements. Our first effort is a tree service to provide services in the neighborhood during a certain time at a reduced rate. If you are interested, contact or call Larry Hembree at 782-3952.

Also our neighbor, Dan Rogers, who has a yard maintenance service, has agreed to provide lawn aeration in the neighborhood. He will rent an aerator and the more folks who sign up the cheaper it will be! Again, call or call Larry Hembree at 782-3952 if you are interested.

Neighborhood-Wide Yard Sale!
We have scheduled our neighborhood-wide for Saturday, May 31 from 9am to 2pm. Advertisements have been placed in The State and the Free Times. Set up your sale in your own yard. Keep all the proceeds. Start cleaning out those closets!
