SHWCA Membership Drive Begins September 1st

The annual membership drive for the Sleepy Hollow Woods Civic Association (SHWCA) will be underway soon. Our block captains, your fellow “Woods” neighbors, will be stopping by with a form with information to be published in our directory. When the block captains knock on your door, please review your information for accuracy. If they have left the form in your door, review and return to your block captain with the $30 in dues. 

Paying your membership dues provides revenue for many expenses and activities, including: our Neighborhood Watch Program, The Lamplighter newsletter, our yard sale and picnic, entrance maintenance, and social activities for adults and children.

This year  we have an additional option for paying your dues.  SHWCA will also accept electronic payments via Zelle.  To pay membership dues electronically, SHWCA residents need to logon to their online banking account,  and click on the Zelle link, enter the email address SHWPayments@gmail.com and enter the payment amount of $30.00.  Please also include your house number and street name in the memo field so we will able to track your payments.  If you still prefer to pay by cash or check, the block captains will be around to collect the forms and payment.


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!

Protect our Water: Only Rain in the Drain

Have you noticed anything new with the storm drains? Volunteers from the Northern Virginia Soil & Water Conservation District have begun replacing or adding new markers to the storm drains in our neighborhood. Storm drain markers on drains across Fairfax County tell us that anything washed or dumped down a storm drain goes directly into our streams, not to a water treatment plant. Our nearest stream, Holmes Run, leads

to the Potomac River, a source of drinking water and recreation. Please remember - Only Rain in the Storm Drain! Make sure that nothing other than water ever goes down your storm drain. Help keep water safe for children and future generations. Additional information and list of common pollutants can be found at the link below.

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.
