Sandpipers was founded in 2010 because a number of former Newcomers saw the need for a new social organization on the island. Sandpipers is designed to offer as little or as much activity as a member chooses—from dining in and dining out to several group meetings throughout the year. The meetings are typically parties—with no agenda other than good food and fun with friends. Sandpipers is small enough to host group meetings in a variety of different venues, often with fun themes coordinated with the time of year. The plan is to offer additional activities for those within the group on a regular basis as well—excursions both locally and possibly farther afield, and cater to special interests such as book club, bridge, kayaking, etc. For information on and an application, visit the website, www.sandpipersclubssi.org.
