Membership

  • Dues are $10 per person, per year, check or money order only. The membership year coincides with the calendar year — January 1st through December 31st.
     
  • Checks or money orders must be made payable to Lynnhaven Neighbors.
     
  • Membership dues must be paid BEFORE signing up for any event/social, or before receiving service for your computer.
     
  • Single members can purchase one Guest Pass each year from Membership for $10. The pass can be used by any person who does not live in Lynnhaven, and who is accompanying the member to the event. A Guest Pass is a transferable membership for the year. Only people known to be single can use the Guest Pass.
     
  • Because of the number of current members, membership in Lynnhaven Neighbors is restricted to full- or part-time Lynnhaven residents. Members who no longer live in Lynnhaven may continue to renew their memberships as long as they do not allow their membership to lapse. No new non-resident members can be accepted.


Monthly Socials

General

  • Lynnhaven Neighbors socials are Adults Only unless otherwise stipulated. No children under the age of 18 will be admitted.
     
  • Name Badges are provided at most monthly socials. Badges are picked up by members when they arrive and check in for an event and collected at the end of the evening. If the name you want on your name badge is different from what is on your check or return address, you must let the Membership Chairperson know the name that you want on your badge.
     
  • There is a 50/50 drawing at most monthly socials. Half the money collected is divided among the winners, and the other half goes into the Lynnhaven Neighbors treasury to help fund our socials and entertainment.
     
  • An Admittance Policy for Monthly Socials has been established to allow our monthly volunteer committees time to set up and decorate without having to work around attendees. Doors will not open until the committee is set up and ready. The Villages has become very strict about the time allotted to clubs using the facilities, leaving the committees less time to prepare, so please respect their needs.
     
  • Reserving seats for friends should be restricted to no more than two seats per couple.


Reservations

  • Social events take place on the 3rd Friday of each month, September-May, unless otherwise specified. Other events may be offered that are separate from the monthly socials (e.g., golf scramble, a special trip or dinner).
     
  • The policy for signing up for events is "members first." When an event is sold out, a Waiting List will be started. Should someone cancel, people on the list will be contacted in the order that their names were received.
     
  • Reservations to events must be paid by check or money order only. All checks or money orders must be made payable to Lynnhaven Neighbors, not to an individual.
     
  • Members can sign up for the next month’s event on the day of the current month’s event, or a check or money order may be delivered or mailed to the person taking sign-ups. Members who will be out of town at the time of sign-up are advised to give their payment to a neighbor to deliver. Check or money order must be received before the posted cut-off date.


Cancellations

  • If you have signed up for an event but can’t attend, you must contact the person taking reservations so your name can be removed from the Admittance List. Do not transfer your reservation to a friend -- you must go through the person taking reservations. Your friend will NOT be admitted if not on the Admittance List, and you will be responsible for reimbursing them.
     
  • No refunds can be given for cancellations made after a food order or head count for an event or activity has been submitted. Payment made for reservations becomes non-refundable once the order has been placed, unless it is a sold out event and someone takes your place. (Again, only the Club can transfer your seat to another person).


Guests

  • Members may bring houseguests or guests who live in another Village to selected events if the event is open to guests and extra seats are available. A higher reservation price may be required for each guest.


Golf Events

  • Golf Events participants must pay when registering. Only current-year Lynnhaven Neighbors members may participate and win money. If a Golf Event is sold out, names may be put onto a Standby List. Should someone cancel, people on the list will be contacted in the order that they were put on the list — first in, first called.
     
  • All golf-associated fees and charges are over and above the cost of the event. They are to be paid at the time of the event in the course’s pro shop.
     
  • No refunds can be given for cancellations made after a food order or head count for an event or activity has been submitted. The reservations purchased become non-refundable.
     
  • If you are unable to participate after submitting your reservation, you may not give or sell your reservation to someone else. Only the event’s coordinator(s) can do this. They keep a Standby List of members and may be able to resell or transfer your reservation to another club member. If so, you will get your money back when the resold/transferred reservation is paid for.
     
  • Reservations transferred, except through designated coordinator(s), will be barred from playing and money will not be refunded.
