The Adopt-A-Highway Group endeavors to meet monthly to keep the Saint Simons Entrance Gateway free of trash and litter. We meet one of the first Saturday’s of each month but will adjust our schedule based on need. We meet at the intersection of Hamilton Road and Sea Island Road on the morning of our designated clean up, usually around 8:30 a.m. We are generally done in about an hour or so and we provide all the materials needed to complete our task. Everyone is welcome as we provide this service to help keep our Island beautiful working to support the greater efforts of Keep Golden Isles Beautiful. Contact us by email at [email protected] for more information and to get on our list of volunteers for this activity.
Our biking club is focused on providing participants with a low key, leisurely biking experience for members of all ages and biking skills. Group bike rides will start and end at various landmarks on St. Simons and Jekyll Islands with a mid-point destination involving a lunch or other activity at the destination. Target ride lengths are 5-10 miles and will take advantage of our island’s extensive paved sidewalks and trails. Any bike will be ideal for the rides so dust off the Townie or Huffy and get ready to take a spin with us. Contact us by email at [email protected] for more information and to get on our list of participants.
Members of Island Newcomers are invited to participate in monthly book club meetings to discuss books selected by their group. For those who delight in reading, this is a good way to unwind with a light snack, share viewpoints, and become acquainted with other new St Simons Island residents. Books can be either fiction or non-fiction depending on the club. Book clubs meet in the day and evening which gives you plenty of opportunity to choose a club that is right for you and your schedule. Contact us by email at [email protected] for more information and to get on our list of participants.
Bowling welcomes all levels of play from gutter-ball bowlers to more experienced bowlers. It is all about having FUN! You can sign up as a single or as a couple. It is not necessary to commit to coming each time – you can come when you are able or come every month if you want to. We put together different teams each month so you can meet new folks each time you play. We gather the last Monday of every month throughout the year. In December and May, we do meet earlier due to the holidays. The location for bowling is the Strike Zone in Brunswick, (by I-95 Toyota) and we meet around 6:00pm for a 6:30pm start time. Contact us by email at [email protected] for costs and how you can join this fun group activity.
