Club names membership director

Members of the Ford’s Colony Country Club have welcomed a new membership director, Tony Null. He comes to Ford’s Colony after working in Raleigh, N.C. for nearly a decade as director of communications and marketing for the North Ridge Country Club.

Null has a long Virginia history, however. He was raised in Newport News, earned a degree in mass communications from Virginia Commonwealth University and is the former membership director at Kingsmill Resort. 

Ford’s Colony residents can reach out to Null for country-club membership information at 757-258-4100.

Say 'No' to old smoke detectors

When Daylight Saving Time (blessedly) arrives March 8, why not take it as a cue to test and possibly swap out your home’s smoke detectors?

You know it’s time to change the batteries by the sometimes annoying, but always necessary, “chirp” that emits from a power-drained device. But when to completely upgrade a smoke detector?

Ah, that answer is less obvious.

The standard endorsed by FEMA is every 10 years. And unless you have the actual purchase receipt or a faultless memory, you need to physically remove the detector from the ceiling and check the manufacture date on the back of it.

If it’s been 10 years since the device was made, swap it out for a brand new one to be certain it is in peak condition. It’s a small chore for great peace of mind. And then, don’t forget to check the batteries every month as well.

Push the “test” button, so your home safely passes with flying colors.

Take a look inside!

News Road safety improvements

Work to improve safety at the intersection of News and Centerville Roads is set to begin, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation. And that IS good news for Ford’s Colony residents who traverse that intersection just outside of the neighborhood. 

Planned improvements include installing a traffic light, a right-turn lane from News onto Centerville, and left- and right-hand turn lanes off of Centerville.

The light and new turn lanes are designed to address current and future capacity issues at that intersection. VDOT predicts traffic on both roads will increase approximately 25 percent over the next 20 years. 

More information about the project can be found here.
