HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Twelfth Night Adult Post Holiday Party
The Sherwood Forest Neighborhood Association’s annual post-holiday adult drop-in is set for 6-10pm on Friday, January 5 at Regina Monteith’s, 530 Kilbourne Rd (behind the Piggly Wiggly). Regina has again graciously agreed to host our annual 12th Night party at her beautiful and historic home, the original 1920’s home of W. Gordon Belser, known as Bloomwood!
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. We could use some volunteers to help with the setup and/or cleanup.
Please RSVP to Megan Harrington at 252 904-4721 or firstname.lastname@example.org, and let her know what you can bring and if you can help with setup and/or cleanup.
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!

SFNA General Meeting
Tuesday, February 13, 6:30pm-8pm
The next general meeting of the Sherwood Forest Neighborhood Association is scheduled for Tuesday, February 13 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!
21st Great Backyard Bird Count
Mark your calendars for the 21st Great Backyard Bird Count, coming up February 16 through 19, 2018. The GBBC team at Audubon, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, and Bird Studies Canada uses online citizen-science to collect data on wild birds and to display results in near real-time!
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.
