MESSAGE FROM NOP PRESIDENT
Can the third time be the charm? Let’s hope so! Attached is the flyer for the updated attempt for the third time to have the Neighbor’s Bridge Luncheon now scheduled for August 31.
As we move into our 5th month of social distancing, we are struggling to find ways to keep in touch with friends and family – outdoor Book Club meetings, Zoom groups, online games, cart & deck socials, etc.
My hope and prayer for all of you is that soon we will be able to comfortably meet together without fear of infection and your board can also meet to find some creative ideas to have a few events during the remainder of the year.
In the meantime, try to have positive attitudes that things will get better – find creative ways to enjoy some safe social activities based on recommended guidelines and have faith that we will get through this.
Neighbors 2020 President
It is with sadness that the Neighbors board has made the decision to cancel all Neighbors events and activities until May. We are following the CDC guidelines that groups of 10 or more be canceled. The March Bridge Luncheon scheduled for March 30th has been rescheduled for June 29th. The Progressive Dinner scheduled for April 18th is canceled and a decision has been made to cancel Dining Out which was scheduled for May 17th at Scott’s Table.
All Neighbors sponsored social activities and groups such as book clubs, cards, recipe club, etc. are canceled until May. The April 1st board meeting is canceled as well.
We now have a confirmed case of Coronavirus in Southern Pines. The Neighbors Board has decided to err on the side of caution with the health of our members in mind. We urge our Neighbors to take the guidelines for this virus seriously, but also not to panic and try to enjoy some other activities such as maybe a walk outside, reading a book you have been wanting to read or even a DIY project you have not had the time to do. A positive attitude will help us to get thru this difficult time and hopefully, it will be a short time before we can be back to enjoying our normal activities.
Also, please remember to check in on your neighbors.
2020 Neighbors President
Welcome to the Neighbors of Pinehurst Website
The purpose of this non-profit organization is to afford members the opportunity to become acquainted with new friends throughout the community. Membership is open to residents of Pinehurst and the surrounding areas.
Many of us are here from different parts of the country and welcome the opportunity to make new friends – whether it be dining at one of the local restaurants, our progressive dinner, playing bridge with the many groups, joining one of nine book clubs, trying a variety of wines with one of our wine tasting groups, and hanging out with friends at our annual picnic. We also have a summer pool party and our annual book club luncheon with a guest author later in the year. We welcome newcomers to join our community.
