A Message from the President

Fellow Neighbors,


Welcome to Spring! I hope you and your family are in good health. It finally looks like we are getting a handle on this pandemic as more and more of our neighbors are vaccinated. It’s been a rough year for everyone and for our community association as we have remained socially distant. I am sad to announce that we are unable to hold our Community Picnic again this year; it’s just still a bit early to hold a large social gathering. As things improve, we will look to get together when it is safe to do so, possibly this fall. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this great Spring weather and get out and meet your neighbors at least in small groups. We have so many new families in the neighborhood and hopefully we can all get to know each other a little better as things begin to return to normal.
As for SHWCA, we continue to manage the functions of the organization as best we can. It still isn’t possible to hold meetings, but if you have questions or concerns, feel free to e-mail any of the executive committee members. In the mean-time, we managed a somewhat successful membership drive. By the way, it’s never too late to join. Joining is completely voluntary, but critical to continue the work of the Association. The small fee of $30 annually makes a big impact. The bulk of the funds goes to maintaining the community entrances. This pays for mowing, mulching, leaf removal, landscaping, painting and repair of the stonework and signs, and maintenance and operation of the gas lamps. It also helps pay for community events when we can hold them again. The Association depends on the volunteer spirit of our neighbors.
One event we will hold this year is our community yard sale. The yard sale will be held on May 15th from 8 am-2 pm. In the event of inclement weather, the raindate will be May 16th. The Association will provide advertising and signs for the event. If the weather is too bad, we will look at shifting to the following weekend. This event always gets a lot of traffic, so maybe you'll want to declutter, unload some of those pandemic 

sweatpants, or just make room for some upgraded items for your home. Finally, in a special wish for Mother's Day and Father's Day, we’d like to extend a special shout-out to all our mothers and fathers in the neighborhood! Enjoy the glorious Spring and Summer, and we'll see you around the Woods!

Charles Becker

SHWCA President

Hello and welcome to the

Sleepy Hollow Woods Civic Association.


Sleepy Hollow Woods is a neighborhood of 377 homes (including Oak Knoll Estates, which is part of the Sleepy Hollow Woods Civic Association area) located in the Mason District of Fairfax County.  The community was founded in 1959, and remains one of the premier sites in the Northern Virginia area.  We are located in Annandale, Virginia, just off Columbia Pike and Sleepy Hollow Road.  For more information about our neighborhood, including its history, a local map, photos, and other info, click on the Our Community button above.


This site is intended to be another way of keeping our residents up-to-date on what is happening in the Woods, to let other people know about our community, and to serve as a central point for access to the various community documents.
