The Ford’s Colony Activities Committee is sponsoring an “Artists & Artisans Expo” on Feb. 25-26, 2023 to showcase the creative talents of Ford’s Colony residents.
The free event plans to feature homemade paintings, sculpture, woodwork, quilting, jewelry and photography, as well as art produced by the youth of Ford’s Colony.
The committee seeks monetary donations of any amount to ensure this exciting expo is a success. All donors will be highlighted at the event and featured in marketing materials for the expo. Sponsors will also be invited to a “Meet the Artists” reception to be held Sat., Feb. 25.
Checks can be written to the Ford’s Colony HOA — note “Art Expo” in the memo — and be dropped off at the community services building. Event co-chairs Ellen Swan (Ellen.M.Swan@gmail.com) and Ginger Kroncke (BillGinger71@gmail.com) also are available to pick up donations and to answer any questions regarding the expo.
The Ford’s Colony HOA has sent out a link to its annual residents’ satisfaction survey.
The board of directors would like to hear from as many Ford’s Colony residents as it can regarding its performance and areas of improvement that should be addressed moving forward.
The survey is brief and confidential — and more than one person in a household may respond.
The link to the survey is here. Responses are being accepted until Sept. 30. A summary of results will be issued after responses are compiled.
The September “Talk of the Colony” magazine is out and includes the updated housing figures as provided by the Ford’s Colony Architectural Review Committee.
As of the end of July, Ford’s Colony now includes 2,621 single-family homes. Add in 80 townhomes and the 24 Eaglescliffe condos, it puts total housing units in the community at 2,725.
Additionally, 46 homes were under construction as of July 31, with 20 applications for construction year-to-date.
