Ford’s Colony will hold its spring food and diaper drive — to benefit Williamsburg House of Mercy — Saturday, May 1 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Ford’s Colony swim and tennis club.
Critically needed food items and infant/toddler diapers can be dropped off in the contact-free, drive-through lanes that will be set up in the club’s parking lot. Place the items in the rear of your vehicle and masked and gloved volunteers will remove them.
The WilliamsburgHouseofMercy.org website has a list of the most-needed food supplies such as peanut butter, canned meats, fish and fruit, and fruit juice. Cash donations may also be made on the website, and checks payable to the Williamsburg House of Mercy (note: food pantry) may be mailed to the charity’s headquarters at 10 Harrison Ave., Williamsburg, 23185.

Also, a pharmacist provided by Ford’s Colony HOA will give flu shots, including the “high dose” senior flu shot, Saturday, Oct. 17 from 10 a.m. to noon at the swim and tennis club located at 165 St. Andrews Drive.
No appointment is necessary, although those coming for a shot are reminded to bring their insurance card.
Williamsburg-James City County students will begin the school year learning virtually, but they will still need supplies at home. You can help by donating items into two totes that have been placed outside the Community Services Building.
Supplies most needed are:
Dry erase markers
Composition notebooks for elementary students, who do not use spiral notebooks or loose-leaf paper.
Crayola crayons; they work best and hold up longer than other brands.
Cash donations are also welcome! Checks can be made out to WJCC and put into the drop box — not the totes — also outside the CSB.
Here are a few highlights of Phase 3 reopening as it pertains to facilities at Ford’s Colony. All updated gathering restrictions and guidelines in Ford’s Colony can be found at fchoa.org:
On July 1, pickleball, tennis courts, bocce and basketball courts and the Westbury Park pool and bathrooms reopened. A reminder that these are for use by residents and family members, not outside guests. Required reservation information and a liability waiver can also be found at fchoa.org
The Westbury pool is limited to 120 people and the Swim and Tennis club pool 80. Dedicated lap swim and water exercise periods will be managed separately and are limited to 24 people per morning period.
The HOA suggests residents take numerous health and safety precautions including:
maintaining a 10-foot distance from residents who aren’t family members when at a facility
using hand sanitizer before entering a facility and after each activity
masks are strongly encouraged in outdoor public areas when in close proximity to others except when swimming, exercising or in the case of a health condition. Facial coverings are required for anyone entering a clubhouse or exercise studio.

A virtual “coffee with the board” will be held May 14 at 3 p.m. for Ford’s Colony residents. Using the Go To Meeting app, HOA board vice president Carmen Hegge-Kleiser will serve as host.
All residents interested in joining the event are asked to register no later than May 12. The “coffee” will be limited to the first 20 responses, and priority will go to those who have not participated in a coffee with the board session before.
The board specifically encourages residents with school-age children, who might have more flexible work schedules at the moment, to join the session.
Register by sending your name, phone number and email address to Carmen Hegge-Kleiser. The Go To Meeting link and a call-in number will be provided to all confirmed participants via email on May 13.
This will be the eighth coffee with the board, an initiative begun last year to increase communication with residents in a more personal setting.
