Here’s to a Better Year in 2021!

Sherwood Forest neighborhood is hoping all of our neighbors are faring as well as possible and continue to stay safe!

SFNA works to provide opportunities to create neighborhood unity, provide information of interest to our neighbors, and promote and enhance Sherwood Forest as a desirable location to live, work, and play!

The SFNA can speak with one voice to address issues affecting our neighborhood regarding City services, utility work, code violations, and other problems or opportunities.

Of course we would appreciate your support by joining SFNA with yearly dues of $20. These funds are used to provide refreshments at our events, support the Arboretum, install and maintain street sign toppers (which unfortunately is an ongoing task), for our online presence, and other miscellaneous expenses.

Please join or renew for 2021 today! You can pay your dues online.

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 membership@sherwoodforestneighbors.org or subscribe online

Rabid Raccoon Found In Neighborhood

The Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) confirmed that a raccoon located near Blossom Street and Poinsettia Street in Columbia, SC tested positive for rabies.

One person was potentially exposed and was refereed to their healthcare provider. The raccoon was submitted to DHEC’s laboratory for testing on September 3 and was confirmed to have rabies on September 4.

If you are going to feed your pets outdoors, the recommendation is to feed at certain times each day and remove any uneaten food promptly. Unsecured bags or containers of pet food, trash and garbage that contains food scraps, and open compost piles or compost containers will attract wildlife.
