Looking for Support for National Night Out 2018

We are in the process of putting together Sharon Woods’ National Night Out 2018, to be held Tuesday, August 7th.   Once more plans are confirmed we will keep you posted.

  1.  We are looking for a company or companies to help financially to purchase blue light bulbs to be distributed to our residents at the 2018 NNO.
  2.  We are also looking for financial support to purchase or make bandanas for dogs to give to owners and ask them to be a part of a dog walker watch. We hope to start this in April or May.

According to the Humane Society of the United States and the ASPCA, there are over seventy five million dog owners across the nation. That’s dozens, if not hundreds, of neighbors walking their dogs throughout the community at all times of the day, all days of the week, in all weather conditions.   Dog Walker Watch encourages these neighbors to assist local law enforcement with the concept of “see something, say something”. They are extra eyes and ears while out walking their dog. The program enhances the partnership between police and the community while providing resources for neighbors to be more aware and how to effectively observe and report suspicious activity.

If anyone has or knows of a company that could help, please get in touch with Pat Wood, 614-406-4829 or

Thank you.

Update on Helicopter around Dorsetshire on 11/17

The following is public information, however I did not put specific house numbers.

A homeowner in the 1800 block of Dorsetshire called CPD last evening around 11:20pm and reported someone trying to get in their back door.

CPD arrived and was able to trace foot prints & blood to a house in the 1800 block of  Balsamridge where a 29 year old male was arrested.  (he cut his hand when breaking the window to obtain entry).

Nothing was taken and no one injured.

6283 Skywae Update 12/19/17

We should see some “clean up” action on this house very soon.  The family attorney has been in the house and he is taking responsibility to get it cleaned up and sold.  I understand someone is interested in the property so we may see some action before the end of 2017!

Just to let you know “Missy” & her grandparent’s are doing great & Missy is in school and enjoying learning and making friends.

Several departments within the city of Columbus such as Code enforcement and others collect money and donate it every year.  This year $1200 in gift carts went to Missy and her grandparent’s.

I want to thank all the neighbors who donated money & clothing – Sharon Woods is a great place to live –

Merry Christmas & Peace on Earth.
