Hethwood Hurricanes Summer Swim Team

We are excited to announce the return of our summer swim team The Hethwood Hurricanes again for the 2018 season! It’s a great way for swimmers of all ages and abilities to learn, practice and compete (optional). If you or your child are interested in being a part of this wonderful community program, we will be accepting registration forms at pool pin registration nights: May 16th & 17th in the Huntsman Clubhouse from 5:45PM to 7:45PM. Registration fee is $100. Registration forms can be found on the Hethwood Foundation website under the forms and links tab. Practices during the competitive swim season are tentatively scheduled at the Huntsman pool-time & days to be determined. Any questions can be answered at either registration nights or the preseason pool hours where representatives will be available. The Hurricanes are a volunteer ran and organized group, so we encourage parents and family members of our swimmers to please consider volunteering during our swim meets this summer. Contact Kelly Apisa (kelly.apisa@yahoo.com) for more information.

Please stay off of the pond

As a friendly reminder: Please stay off of the pond As the ice thickness can vary, you are putting yourself at risk by venturing out onto the ice. If you see someone on the ice feel free to advise them to slowly step off the ice. Your help is appreciated in this matter. If you feel that they are in danger please contact the local emergency services. All trails and amenities are to be used at your own risk.

Satellite Dishes

The FCC allows for the residents of planned communities to install direct broadcast satellite dishes. Before installing any satellite dish, we request you complete a Notice of Intent to Install and Antenna. The form as well as information regarding installation size and location can be printed from the Hethwood website or picked up at the Hethwood office. Once this is filled with the Hethwood Foundation you are free to carry out installation, unless for some reason the size or location does not conform to applicable standards.

Blacksburg Rescue Squad Winter Pond Training

Please note: We have offered the use of our pond to the Blacksburg Rescue Squad. When our pond freezes you may see the rescue squad completing pond rescue drills. This could be completed several times during the winter months. The area will be clearly marked with emergency vehicles and signage stating that it is a only a drill. If possible we will try to send notice in advance depending on the weather and the Squad's ability to let us know in advance.

The last loose leaf pickup was the week of 12/4/17, if you have left over leaves see below: Leaf vacuums and other specialized equipment must be removed from truck in order to prepare the vehicles for snow removal.
