We, your POA Board hope all of you are having a safe summer and you are all staying well. We have decided that with the increasing COVID-19 numbers increasing it would be the best interest of all for us to postpone several of our activities and events until September. Those would include: POA Annual Meeting, Community Yard Sale and the Chili Cook-off. We were able to have 2 very successful events and I have noted those below.
Annual Neighborhood Cleanup:
June 13th, we had our Annual Neighborhood Cleanup. We started at 9 am and finished the morning off with a delicious pulled pork & chicken lunch hosted by Gary and Marilyn Taylor on Knighthood. We had 18 volunteers’, with a total of 63 hours worked and a little over 100 lbs. of debris collected. Our hours will go toward our Firewise hours. This helps with our ISO rating and also some insurance rates.
I would like to express my extreme gratitude to everyone who helped to make Sherwood Forest Estates look fantastic. Masks and Social Distancing practiced. ~Kathie Krushinsky SFE POA, President and Neighborhood Cleanup Coordinator.
SFE POA Blood Drive
On June 20th, the Sherwood Forest Estates Property Owners Association sponsored our first but not last Blood Drive. On behalf of the Officers of the SFEPOA, thank you for your donation today: We hope this is the first blood drive of many to come. Thank you for your understanding as we worked through this during the coronavirus pandemic and the resultant changes and accommodations. We plan to make this an annual event, and hope each of you will return to donate time and time again. There are a lot of great reasons to donate. Every two seconds someone in the United States needs blood. Every year nearly 5 million Americans depend on blood transfusions.
Bart, the owner of the Parks Feed and Mercantile generously donated the $10 gift certificates for each of our donors. It is not good for cigarettes or alcoholic beverages! Parks will have their second community blood drive on September 19th from 8am to 1pm in the parking lot of the Parks Feed and Mercantile for anyone wanting information about future drives.
As we look forward to a SFEPOA sponsored Blood Drive in the summer of 2021, we would like any suggestions you might have. Again, thank you for your generous donation and your time! ~Jeanna Roush SFE POA, Treasurer and Blood Drive Coordinator

Subject: Thank You
Vitalant thanks you for organizing the recent blood drive at Sherwood Forest Estates POA. Your drive will help to assure that blood is available for patients in need.
In the current environment, when so many blood drives are being cancelled, please know we are especially grateful to you and your organization for keeping your blood drive open. Even in these uncertain times, one thing remain constant, the need for blood by hospital patients.
Your efforts and the support of Sherwood Forest Estates POA are greatly appreciated and will go a long way toward assuring a strong blood supply, and ultimately saving lives.
Again, thank you for your contribution and ongoing support of the community blood program. I enjoyed working with you.

Moonset Pit (closed) Alternative Site
Unfortunately, Moonset Pit green waste from 2019 was not burned. We were only able to use that site one time before it was filled to capacity. We’ve been given the use of the Alternative Waste Site off of Rt 66 and the gas pipeline rd. We will be using this site for the remainder of the summer. We have been sharing the volunteer manning of the site with Parks and it has been very successful and very well used by neighbors from near and far. This site will be open July 11th and 25th, August 8th and 22nd, with September 5th being the last open day.
Thank you too all of the many volunteers who have given their time to help keep this much needed service open and available for so many. ~Kathie Krushinsky, SFE POA President and Coordinator of Moonset Pit
Please stay safe and well. We hope to see you all during the summer.
Remember to try to keep the dust down on our roads and report to the Coconino Sheriff’s dispatch (928-774-4523) any speeders or stop sign runners.
