The Twelfth Night Adult Party!
Friday, January 10, 6pm-9pm
The Twelfth Night Party will be on Friday, January 10 from 6pm until 9pm. This year there will be valet parking in the driveway for handicapped partygoers or others in need. Others can park at the Piggly Wiggly or just walk!

The 2020 Party will be a Birthday Party! We will be celebrating the 100th birthday of Bloomwood, the original 1920’s home of W. Gordon Belser. The original architectural drawings for the house date from the spring and summer of 1919. Nineteen twenty would be the first year of its occupancy. While a few changes and additions have been made over its 100 years, the house remains essentially as it was originally designed and built.

There will be cake, not a King’s cake but a Birthday Cake!

The association will provide a HoneyBaked ham, beer, wine and soft drinks. We ask if you can come that you bring a side dish, snack or dessert.

This event has always been lots of fun and a great opportunity to get to know your neighbors. If you have a neighbor who hasn't attended, bring 'em along!

'Tis the Season - Too Much Packaging
A reminder from the City of Columbia
During the holiday season, the amount of waste generated increases by approximately 25 percent! You can help reduce the environmental impact of the season by properly sorting packaging after opening gifts:

For recycling:
- Brown paper bags
- Cardboard (flattened)
- Newspaper

For garbage:
- Foil/metallic wrapping paper
- Ribbons, bows and tape
- Clear plastic packaging from toys
- Bubble wrap/air pillows
- Plastic bags
- Styrofoam
- Foam peanuts

Remember reduce, reuse and recycle!

SFNA General Meeting
Tuesday, February 11, 6:30pm-8pm
The next general meeting of the Sherwood Forest Neighborhood Association is scheduled for Tuesday, February 11 from 6:30pm-8pm at the Sherwood Forest Presbyterian Church on the corner of Wilmot Avenue and Beltline Boulevard. Join us at 6pm to meet and greet your neighbors!

If you have any questions or concerns, or ideas for speakers, please let us know!

Crier emails
We are making an effort to send out these informational emails around the first of every month to keep neighbors up do date on neighborhood events, and other events and information of interest. It's cheaper and better for the environment not to print and pass out fliers! But we could all probably use the exercise!

If you have information of interest to the neighborhood, please pass it along and we may include it in a future Crier.

Tell your friends and neighbors to subscribe. No membership required, but of course we would like everybody to join! New neighbor? Let us know and we'll send out the welcome wagon.

To subscribe, email or subscribe online
