April 2023 Activities Announcement

Change continues…we’re all adjusting to Daylight Savings Time, azaleas and dogwoods are blooming, Georgia “snow” is falling with the new leaves emerging. BUT, what doesn’t change is the plethora of Recurring and Special Activities that our Activity Chairs are offering in April!

As a part of his March 1st President’s Message, Keith Kreuger spoke to the tradition of current Activity Chairs seeking their successors for the upcoming operational year (07/01/2023 – 06/30/2024). In our respective roles working with and supporting our Activity Chairs, we can attest that nothing – NOTHING – occurs without their creativity, enthusiasm, and passion. So, we too ask you to consider raising your hand to volunteer and join in the fun!

Remember, mark your calendar for Saturday, March 18th @ 8:00 a.m. to sign-up for any of these Special Events!


April 3rd

  • Join the Men’s Lunch Group as they continue their culinary journey across Savannah at Sweet Potatoes, located at 531 Stephenson Ave
  • International Group Pot Luck Dinner celebrates April in Paris.

April 4th

  • Author Talk – This Activity has rapidly become a favorite among NN. This month features Randy Siegel, author of “Searching for the One” and “Change Begins Here: Adopt the Mind of Christ and Build a Better World”
  • Arts & Crafts – Purchase a greeting card lately? You don’t have to pay exorbitant costs for greeting cards when you can learn to make your own!
  • Happy Hour(s) – Have your finger hovering over the Send key at 8:00 a.m. on the 18th if you’re interested in attending this one as the last one here filled-up at 8:07 a.m.!
  • Spring means Boating is back! Join friends (old and new) on a casual boat cruise from the Delegal Marina to the always popular Fish Tales Restaurant in Richmond Hill.
  • As the moon grows full for the month of April, Nature Tours invites you to take a moonlight walk at Skidaway Island State Park. Join a ranger-led 1 mile RT hike to an observation tower looking out over the Skidaway Narrows and see the park after dark.

April 10th

  • Ladies Breakfast n’ Brunch will be dining this month at Goose Feathers Café, a Savannah staple since 1986 located downtown at 39 Barnard St.

April 13th

  • One week later, Boating has yet another great Activity (though this time leaving the North end of the Island at The Landings Harbor Marina). You’re invited to enjoy the scenery of the Wilmington River on a casual Pontoon Boat Cruise.

April 18th

  • For nearly 100 years, the community of Pin Point was quietly isolated on the banks of the Moon River just south of Savannah. Discover Savannah offers the opportunity to tour the refurbished Pin Point Heritage Museum complex and experience the Gullah/Geechee culture first hand.
  • What can we say? Boating has hit the trifecta this month! Cruise North from The Landings Harbor Marina dock to The Wyld Restaurant.
  • The Gourmet Group invite you to bring your cookbooks, brainstorm and plan the menu for the next dinner June 17th. The “South in Your Mouth Gourmet Dinner” will explore and elevate classic Southern dishes into a gourmet feast!

April 20th

  • The Wright Square Bistro is the location for this month’s Ladies Lunch. For this Spring luncheon, a special three course menu is being offered. Also, the Bistro has one of the largest selections of gourmet chocolates in the South!

April 21st

  • Curious as to what our Island looks like from the water? Partnering with Bull River Cruises, our Nature Tour Activity Chairs have arranged a guided boat tour. Circumnavigating our island, this boat tour takes you through the rivers, creeks, sounds, and marshes that surround our home.

April 22nd

  • April in Paris! Fittingly, this month the Gourmet Group invite you to explore classic French dishes. The gourmet dinners include 8 attendees at 6 homes happening simultaneously across the Island. Guests prepare appetizers, first course, main course, or dessert, which are paired with French wines available at the Spirited Gourmet.

April 24th

  • Since Savannah’s founding in February 1733, cooking, dining, and entertaining have been the centerpiece of life in the city we now call home. Local Flavors offer you the opportunity to learn all about the cuisine of the Lowcountry in an interactive cooking lesson with Chef Darin Sehnert of Chef Darin’s Kitchen Table.

April 25th

  • Last, but not least, it’s not too late to signup for the Savannah Riverboat Lunch Cruise. Enough tickets have been sold to secure our own deck on the boat, but there’s still room for a few more! This Discover Savannah offering is a great way to meet new NN, as well as see and learn more of The Hostess City from a different perspective.

SAVE THE DATE!! Monday, May 22nd for the NN Summer Send-Off Party at The Landings Association Activity Fields & Pavilion. Live Bands – Food Trucks – 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. All NN are Invited! – More Information Coming Soon.

March E-News 2023

March Madness is here! What a great line-up of events we have scheduled this month. The calendar of events is bursting at the seams with numerous special events highlighted by our Viva Las Vegas! Casino night on Wednesday, the 15th.

2023-2024 Board of Directors

On behalf of the Nominating Committee (Joe Krisch, Tina Allen, Susan Kurtain, Cathy Delaney, Pal Dalbey and Stephen Ford) and the unanimous approval of the current Board, I’m pleased to announce next year’s Board that will assume their roles on July 1st, 2023:

President – Sean Ryan
Membership – Sandy Hodge
Activity VP’s – Paul Fagan and Kevin Holmes
Treasurer – David Driggers
Secretary – Luanne Samson
Assistant Treasurer – Bill Delaney
Social Co-Chairs – Cindy Johnson and Elena Boshier
Digital Director – John Majeroni
Assistant Digital Director – Julie McCormick
Social Media – Sheila Towson
Meet & Greet Co-Chairs – Karen Floto and Shelly Grossi
Name Tag Coordinators – David Martin and Anne Marie Francis

Together with the current Board and new Board, I’m building a transition plan to occur over the next four months. We want to ensure a seamless hand-off as the operational year concludes so that the new Board is positioned for success on Day One! Please welcome the new Board! Once again, congratulations!!

Activity Chair Recruitment

With the new Board conferred, it’s time to focus on next year’s Activity Chairs. Keeping with the long-standing tradition, we ask the current Chairs to recruit their replacement(s) for the upcoming operational year. Some of the Chairs may choose to remain and lead the respective activity again, which is awesome.

We would, however, like to encourage all of you to get involved in one of the current activities, or even create a new offering similar to our recent additions – Author Talks and Men’s 9-Hole Golf! The activities only occur if we have someone to lead the group, don’t hesitate to get involved. It’s even better if we have multiple chairs for the same activity – the more, the merrier! Many hands make light work as the expression goes……

Men’s 9-Hole Golf

We had an excellent response to last month’s appeal to get this activity launched. 14 men have initially expressed an interest to participate, and today, March 1st is their first round of golf.

Michael Kattman and Rene Bilodeau have volunteered to lead this group each week! If you’re interested in joining the fun, please contact them at, or Enjoy the golf and the post-round socializing!

Activity Sign-Ups

With nearly 1,100 current members, the monthly activity sign-up process can be a challenge for everyone. The demand routinely exceeds our supply. In January we had nearly 600 sign-up requests across the scheduled events.

There aren’t many solutions to this challenge. Our events are popular but our capacity is limited by the number of Activity Chairs willing to volunteer and participate, and the ability of the vendors to support large groups. Often, they restrict the size of the groups for tours, dining and crafting. Simply put, to increase our inventory, we need more Activity Chairs. It’s a great way to get involved and enjoy the respective offering.

Here are a few helpful hints to improve your chances of participating:

  • Be prepared to sign-up promptly at 8:00 am, on the 18th of every month. 8:10 am may be too late for the marquis events each month.
  • Prioritize which event has your greatest interest and select that event first at 8:00 am.
  • Recognize there is high demand, so the ability to select multiple events each month will be very limited and infrequent.
  • Become an Activity Chair, and plan the event (hint, hint)!!!

May the luck of Irish be with you! Have a great month!
