Colony Kids Meeting
Tuesday, July 23rd, 7 p.m. at S&T Club
Interested in kid’s activities in Ford’s Colony? Colony Kids is in need of volunteers and leadership! This awesome club has been responsible for some of the key events for kids in Ford’s Colony over the years such as Spring Fling, Fourth of July Parade, Trunk or Treat and a Christmas party. Colony Kids has a great framework for operations and even a budget; we just need some volunteers to get it running again. If you’re interested, there is a meeting that will be held at the S&T Club on Tuesday, July 23 at 7 p.m. Please contact John Cryer, Chairman of the Activities Committee, at 571-206-2580 or fcactivitieschair@gmail.com or Activities & Recreation Manager Jenny Holland at 757-258-4270 or jholland@fchoa.net if you are interested in attending. 
 
 
Colony Wine & Cheese Garden Party
Sunday, August 11th, 5 to 7 p.m.
The Colony Wine & Cheese group is hosting our Annual Summer Garden Party. An added option will be a Croquet Match with a bottle of wine for the winner. This is always an evening of fun and camaraderie. So, don your best summer party attire and ladies bring your fancy hats to show them off. This event is open to all Ford’s Colony residents. No membership is required. There are regular attendees, but we always welcome fresh faces. We ask that you bring a “heavy” hors d’oeuvre for 8 to 10 people and $5 per person to cover the cost of beverages and paper products. In addition to beer and wine, we will also offer gin & tonic. If interested, please contact Bob Brennan at rbrennan6@cox.net or Bob Lund at boblund@cox.net, to RSVP by August 4. Please do so even if you have attended previously, to ensure you are on the e-mail guest list and allow time to get beverages. The host will send an email to ascertain your choice of beverage and provide directions to their residence. We look forward to seeing you at our garden party for an evening of wine, gin & tonic, appetizers and friendly conversation.
