Village e-news

If you would like to receive the Village e-news to know what's going on in YOUR Village, please e-mail VILLAGEAMBASSADOR@CENTURYLINK.NET and he will gladly add you to the list.

The Village e-news: Is sent to about over a 1000 people including local news media, news papers, TV, HOA's, Churches, County Commissioners, Local Business's, State Senators, State Representatives, surrounding Town's Officials, lots of weekenders, and of course to the great people of Sneads Ferry.

Guidelines for the Village e-news:

One page: Simply send me your news in "Print layout" on one page or I can generate one for you. Print layout is needed so your news can easily be printed and posted on one page.

No attachments: It clogs the system and there are always bounce backs which will have to upload back into my dial up home computer.

Basics: Organization; Time; Place; Location; Phone; E-mail; Website; Price; etc.

Eligibility: Our town is founded upon Village Volunteers so that comes first, corporate / business soliciting is OK but limited.

Buy American !

Buy Wild Caught Shrimp !!

Did you know that there is a law that requires grocery stores fresh seafood markets to display where your seafood is from ?

So please buy our local American Shrimp.

Since our grocery store doesn't have a fresh seafood section (because it can not compete with our fresh local seafood) you might as well buy it right from the fishing docks from our friendly local fishermen at:

Davis Seafood: 327-4081 - 155 Davis Lane (near the new river bridge)

Bowman's Seafood: 327-8931 - 137 Everett Ln. (On the Landing)

**NEW**Graves of Sneads Ferry: Do you know of any graves in Sneads Ferry ?? I know of at least 5 inside of Fulchers Landing, I would love for someone to do a short study story on all of the Grave yards in Sneads Ferry. Most are kept clean but some are unknown, over grown, obscured and neglected, like the one on my neighbors property where you can't even see the stones through the over growth. There's another one located in the back woods off of Hwy 210 near Dixon Elementry School that still has slave markers. Lets have a page on our community website that lists all of the grave yards and lets keep them clean. If your interested in helping with this project, please contact Tim at 910-327-2707.

Ask Tim

If you have any questions about Sneads Ferry or this website, just ask Tim.

 

Website Disclamer:

Sneads Ferry is not incorporated so there are no town tax funds to pay for this website:

This website is built and run by just one, unpaid Village Volunteer, (not a full time paid webmaster that other towns use) information has been compiled over many years and some information my be outdated because enitities have not provided update information, so please don't get upset or belittle the volunteer work, simply have those enities submit their updates to Tim and the website is usually changed within just a few minutes (after I return home from work or return from Volunteering for OUR Village)

You can make a difference; get involved by Volunteering for YOUR Village, just attend the Community Council Meetings, held the 2nd Thursdays of the month, 7pm at the Community Center.
