Welcome to St. Simons Island and Sea Island, Georgia!
Okay, you already made your choice to live here. Now, what’s a great way to find fun things to do and people to do it with? It’s the Island Newcomers Club, of course. Established over 35 years ago, our goal is to acquaint new residents with people, places and activities of the area. The Club is open to all new residents of St. Simons Island, and Sea Island, full- and part-time. We welcome men and women of all ages; couples and singles. Just join us within 2 years of your arrival and you can maintain your Newcomers Club membership for 3 years.
Whether you’re looking for active pursuits or you enjoy a more serene lifestyle, Island Newcomers has something for you. From touring adventures and golf to several book clubs and dining groups, we’re sure we have an activity to please you. We also have regular monthly gatherings for all members to enjoy an evening of food, fun and socializing.
To become a member, just go to the “click to join today” links on this website. Our fun-filled season of events runs from September through May. There is a nominal annual membership fee of $25 per season and you can join any time of the year.
Of course, we’re proud to mention our loyal and generous sponsors. You’ll see their advertisements here on the website, in our newsletter, and in our membership directory. It’s the support of these local businesses that enables us to subsidize many of the Newcomers Club functions. Please make an effort to patronize these businesses and thank them for their generous sponsorship! Tell them you found them through Newcomers.
If you need additional information about the Island Newcomers Club, please contact any member of the Board of Directors. Just click on the Directors tab at the top of the page to find them on the list and send them an email.
“There are no strangers here, only friends we haven’t yet met.”
“Overall, a great experience. Being part of Island Newcomers enabled us to make and develop a wonderful circle of friends. This is what solidified our decision to make SSI our permanent home. We will always, and have already recommended membership to all new residents we’ve met.” – 2014/2015 Member
