SFIA Vision: To bring people together as a community dedicated to participation and cooperation for the common good of all.

SFIA Mission Statement: To encourage and support each other by working together to accomplish community goals. 

Volunteers Helping Our Community

A special THANK YOU is sent out to Ty Wilson who helped get our hall ready for winter, and also helped get it open again this spring. The SFIA is also thankful to Jim Kittle for volunteering to get us a new flag for outside the hall. Jim is a veteran, and we are honored to have his help.

We appreciate everyone who helps to keep our neighborhood, well...neighborly!! Contact us to see how YOU can support your community!

Wildfire Safety

One of the best ways to protect your home and community is to create a 30 – 100 foot safety zone around your home. Also, be aware of any burn bans during wildfire season and honor the restrictions. Be fire aware and report any suspicious smoke, or burning activities, to the Teller County Sheriff (687-9652). The SFIA has several pamphlets available for anyone interested in learning more about wildfire safety and preparations.

Just ask us! We’ll have them available, for you, at the meeting.

Our New Secretary

We are so pleased to announce that Jeni Smoot has graciously volunteered to be the new secretary for the SFIA. Jeni brings great enthusiasm and energy to our board and is already hard at work updating our mailing and emailing lists.

Welcome Spring and Summer!

After some good winter and spring snows, it is wonderful to see green again. I hope all Sherwood Forest residents are enjoying our warming days and nights. I am always heartened to see so many of our neighbors out enjoying our beautiful weather and scenery. As a gentle reminder,
I would like to encourage all Sherwood Forest community members to please slow down on ourneighborhood roads and watch for children walking or playing outside. Let’s also remember tohave dogs on leashes while walking. Loose dogs roaming the neighborhood are a common complaint to the SFIA, so do your best to keep your dogs on your property as a courtesy to your neighbors. Finally, please take care and secure your trash to help keep our neighborhood clean and beautiful.
