FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

All those Landings organizations—it can be confusing!

Landings New Neighbors is not affiliated with The Landings Association, which is the homeowners association for Landings residents, but you must be a member of the Association (live within the gates of the Landings) to belong to New Neighbors.

We’re also not affiliated with The Landings Club, the sports and social club that is part of our community—but we do use many of the Club’s wonderful amenities for our activities. You do not have to belong to the Landings Club to join New Neighbors.

Any full-time or part-time resident of The Landings (live inside the gates) who is age 21 or older, and who has never before belonged to The Landings New Neighbors, is eligible to join. If you are a couple, each person must join separately — there are no family, couple or group memberships.

Yes indeed! That’s our mission! Sign up for an activity and you’re sure to meet some people with a similar interest. If you need a little more help, we have ambassadors who will help you get connected. And don’t be afraid to try something new—you may find a new friend and discover why many residents call The Landings, Camp Skidaway!

Many New Neighbors members are not retired. To decide whether you’ll be able to participate in the activities you like, take a look at the calendar—which shows the day of the week and time of the day for each activity.  If you decide to postpone membership until you retire—we’ll welcome you then!

Part-time residents are eligible to join and our membership includes many folks who are not here year-round. In fact, part-time residents find that New Neighbors is especially helpful in helping them make friends quickly. The New Neighbors calendar shows a year’s worth of activities, and you’ll be able to see which activities match the time you’re in residence.

Indicating an interest in an activity on your application tells the volunteer chairperson for that activity that you might like to participate in that activity. But to participate, you need to sign up for activities. Indicating your interest when you became a member is not enough. Please be proactive and sign up using the website.

 

 

Both men and women are welcome to participate in any activity, unless the activity description specifically states it is exclusively geared toward men or women (i.e. Men’s Golf or Women’s Breakfast). Occasionally an activity typically open to only one gender has an opportunity for both men and women to participate, such as when Wild Women invite men to join them in an outing.

Generally New Neighbors activities are only open to members of The Landings New Neighbors.  However, Activity Chairs may determine if Guests are excluded or limited at any single activity or event.

For activities without a payment, contact the Activity Chairs as soon as possible to let them know that you cannot attend. Activities that are paid for through Eventbrite are non-refundable. However, you may contact the Activity Chair and ask if there is a waiting list.  If so, you may be eligible for a refund through Eventbrite. Only Activity Chairs are authorized to give refunds—you may not “sell” your ticket to another New Neighbor.

Many activities are free.  Those that have a cost vary widely, based on what is offered. We try to provide a range of activities to fit any budget.

  • Ladies Lunch Bunch
  • Local Flavors

These activities do require Club membership because Club facilities are used:

  • Canasta
  • Mah Jongg
  • Golf – Ladies 9-Hole
  • Golf – Ladies 18-Hole
  • Golf – Mens

We try to indicate on the activity posting if Club membership is required. Club membership may be cross checked with the Club membership database.

Many activities take place all year long, but most social activities take place from September through May.  We launch the season of activities in September with our Kick-Off Event, a great time to learn about all of our activities and meet our Activity Chairs and the NN Board for the upcoming year.

We always need talented members to step into volunteer roles. If you’re interested, please contact the New Neighbors President.

No, we never sell, lease or give out membership directory information.  Members are prohibited from using NN Directory information to promote non-NN activities or causes, or to sell goods or services.

New Neighbors is a nonprofit, social organization. We collect dues which pay for our operating expenses, including insurance, website and other communication and marketing expenses, and some costs associated with our full-membership events. Activities are priced to break even; they are not expected to make or lose money.
