The Sherwood Forest Neighborhood Association’s annual post-holiday adult drop-in is set for 6-9:30pm 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!
Please note! The City of Columbia garbage and recycling pickups are scheduled for Wednesday, November 22 because of the Thanksgiving holiday!

The Sherwood Forest Prebyterian Church is hosting a viewing party for the Eclipse and inviting the neighborhood! Avoid the crazy traffic and crowds in town. Come out to the field at the church to see the Eclipse together. They will have games for the kids and a hotdog cookout. Bring anything you want grilled and get it cooked it to your specs!
And speaking of specs, make sure you bring your own certified viewing glasses as those are the only eyeballs you have!
The church will be open and the air conditioning on if you need to get out of the heat.

The USC W. Gordon Belser Arboretum in the heart of Sherwood Forest is almost entirely supported by two funds established in 2007 by the University of South Carolina. The Belser Arboretum Endowment Fund (#B11336) was established to provide a permanent funding mechanism for the Arboretum operation. Only 5% of interest earned by the Endowment Fund can be used each year. The second is the Belser Arboretum Fund (#1A3769) which is a spendable fund from which monies can be freely spent for current Arboretum needs.
If you wish to donate to either of these funds, simple write a check to the USC Education Foundation, 1027 Barnwell St, Columbia SC 29208 and indicate in the memo field the name and number of the fund.
For more information or to arrange for large gifts, contact Vincent R. Suarez, Senior Director of Development, 803.777.4232 or mobile 803.260.3645, or email him at email@example.com.
