SFNA Membership Changes
At the August general meeting it was decided to change our current dues collection system of renewing anytime to an annual system, where everyone pays dues January 1 of each year. The current membership fee of $20 will be good for a calendar year. The SFNA will be conducting a membership drive in October, and any new members who join in October at $20 get full membership through 2010. Current members who have not paid dues in 2009 can pay $10 to renew for the rest of 2009. You must be a paid-up member to vote at the November meeting.

Sherwood Forest Neighborhood Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, so dues are tax deductible! Please take a moment to download, print and fill out the Sherwood Forest Neighborhood Survey located on the neighborhood website, Please mail the form and your payment to our treasurer Rhett Bailey at 511 Kalmia Drive, Columbia, SC 29205.
