The city of Sherwood and Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue held their annual Community Services Fair on May 31 at Station No. 33 in Sherwood.

Calling all youth football players

The Bowmen Football Program will hold its annual Bowmen Youth Camp. Learn skills and techniques of offensive and defensive positions; special team play (punting, kicking, punt and kick-off receiving); and drills to develop and improve speed and agility.

The camp will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. July 21 through 24 at the Aaron J. Contreras Memorial Stadium at SHS. Cost is $60 per player, $110 for families if registered before July 14 (add $10 after that date).

Woodcarvers wanted for new club

Sherwood now has its own woodcarvers’ club. The club meets the first and third Wednesdays of the month from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Sherwood Senior Center. There will be no dues initially until the group is large enough to incorporate as a nonprofit.

Whether you are an experienced woodcarver or a beginner, you’re welcome to join in the creation of this woodcarving club. If you have no experience but would like to learn, the club will supply knives and other tools for your use with the group teaching beginners the fundamentals.
