Membership Drive and Dues Collection shifts to Contactless Format During COVID-19

The annual membership drive for the Sleepy Hollow Woods Civic Association (SHWCA) got a late start this year due to the corona- virus. Normally, our block captains, your fellow “Woods” neighbors, would be stopping by throughout the month of September, armed with pre-filled membership forms with your information to be published in our directory. Due to the pandemic, we will be handling the membership differently this year. This year we will be instituting a contactless format for collecting information and receiving annual dues. A blank form for membership for the Sleepy Hollow Woods Civic Association (SHWCA) can be downloaded by clicking the "Click Here" button below.  Also, a form was included in the most recent issue of the Lamplighter Newsletter.   We are asking everyone to complete a new form this year—whether or not you've completed one in the past, since we are unable to print and mail prefilled membership forms.   Along with the completed form, a $30.00 payment (Make checks payable to SHWCA) for yearly dues is required. Paying your membership dues provides revenue for many expenses and activities, including: our Neighborhood Watch Program, The Lamplighter newsletter, our community website, our annual yard sale and picnic, entrance maintenance—including gas for the laterns—and social activities for both adults and children throughout the year. The membership form lists various ways you can send your form and dues to SHWCA, including mailing, and hand delivering. For those that don’t want to write a check, there will once again be an electronic method for residents to pay their membership dues using Zelle. For more information on using Zelle in order to pay your annual SHWCA dues, consult your financial institution and follow instructions on the membership form. For those of you who have been members in the past, we thank you for your continued support. For those just joining us, we welcome you!.

A Message from SHWCA President Charles Becker



In light of the COVID-19 situation and due to the orders issued by Governor Northam prohibiting group gatherings through June 10th, it is necessary to cancel or postpone Sleepy Hollow Woods community events through that time period. This includes the Wine & Cheese Social, the Community Picnic and Yard Sale, and the April meeting. We plan to reschedule the picnic in the Fall, but are currently unsure when we would hold the Wine & Cheese event at this time. As April was our last meeting of the season, we will not hold a session until September.
