New Neighbors membership is changing for persons joining starting April 15th

The term is changing from two-years plus a one-year extension, to a simple three-year term.

show more

Until now, New Neighbors membership ran for two-years with an option to extend for one-additional third year. Many members did extend, had the hassle of making an additional payment, and it increased NN record keeping and volunteer time.

For individuals who join starting April 15, 2024, the term of membership when joining is lengthened to 3-years and there is no longer any extension period. Membership will start on the date of payment and end on the member’s anniversary date three years later.

Previously, the price for three years of membership was $60 for the original two years plus $30 for the third year, or $90. The price for the new three-year membership is $100, which covers the entire three-year membership period. It includes a small $10 dues increase, the first increase in many years.

For those members who joined prior to April 15, 2024, your membership does not change. You may continue to renew your membership for a third-year with the payment of $30. If you are eligible to extend your membership, you will receive an email asking you to renew in early June.

Members can always find their membership expiration date by checking here.

New Neighbors is About Nurturing

On the day you moved to The Landings, do you remember the feeling you had as you crossed the bridge and gazed ahead at your new home?  …

show more
Perhaps a feeling of not knowing quite what to expect, but a flutter of excitement nonetheless.  Then, as you started meeting people, the excitement turned into something more enduring:  the caring and nurturing of friends and neighbors, expressed in myriad ways.  A quick smile, an invitation to share a glass of wine, or a private moment of empathy over an injury or the loss of a loved one.  These moments between neighbors are meaningful and nurture friendship and community.

For 34 years now, New Neighbors has been a catalyst for our nurturing community.  We want to ensure New Neighbors continues to grow and thrive far into the future.  To ensure this happens, we modernized the by-laws and streamlined the Board of Directors to make New Neighbors more agile and responsive to our members’ needs.   In addition, your Nominating Committee has been working hard to identify candidates for the 2024 – 2025 Board.  If you believe that New Neighbors has made a difference in the quality of your life, and I’m confident you do, please reach out to me.  Let’s talk about how you can contribute to the tradition of caring and nurturing in The Landings.

During this month, consider the small things you can do each day to show others how much their friendship is worth nurturing. 

See you around our beautiful island!
