It takes many hands and hearts to make a neighborhood a place where friendships flourish. Please consider sharing your time and talents.
Adopt an Entrance
Neighborhood volunteers are invited to adopt an entrance at Farmington Sq Rd, Woodhurst, Carriage Hills, or Irongate to do a little weeding and plant annuals or perennials (landscaping crews maintain pruning in the spring and fall). Volunteers will be reimbursed. Please contact Marsha Williams, Grounds Committee Chair, for more details.
FSHA maintains a budget that covers grounds and landscaping. The budget scope of this area involves the mowing and maintenance of FSHA lawn and green spaces including the four neighborhood entrances (along with the upkeep of signs at each space), pool area, soccer field, tennis courts, and flag pole area. Also included in this budget scope are special projects to improve and beautify common areas, leaf blowing in anticipation of County collection, and, in certain cases, tree service when there is a safety risk identified.
Social committee members plan neighborhood-wide events, welcome new neighbors in person, and engage neighbors to help with and participate in events.
Our annual events could not happen without the generosity of neighbors who volunteer their time and talents. If you would like to volunteer or have an idea for a neighborhood event please contact Merylane Torres, firstname.lastname@example.org.
A few of our annual neighborhood events are poolside wine tastings; an autumn chili cook off, hayride, and bonfire; a spring egg hunt; and a Memorial Day weekend party with bike parade, bounce houses, and cookout to ring in summer.
In the spring of 2021, an enthusiastic group of neighbors built and filled four raised garden beds behind the flagpole area near the pool. Together, they will plant, tend, and harvest while getting to know each other better. Join them in their efforts to beautify and give purpose to our communal space. Contact board member-at-large, Sarah Lamphier, to learn more or get involved.
