The Club's Policies
Here are some of the policy decisions made by the Lynnhaven Neighbors Council:
- These fun events
and socials are the
3rd Friday of each month unless
otherwise specified. Other events may periodically be offered that are separate from the monthly
socials (e.g., golf scramble, a special trip or dinner, etc.).
- Dues are $10 per person annually. The membership year
coincides with the
calendar year — January 1st through December 31st.
Membership dues must be paid BEFORE signing up for any
event/social, or before receiving service for your computer.
The policy for
signing up for events is Members
first. When an event is sold out,
a Waiting List will be started.
Should someone have to cancel, people on the list will be contacted in the
order that they were put on the list — first in, first called.
Reservations to events must be paid
using a check or
money order. The club no longer accepts cash. All checks must be made
payable to Lynnhaven Neighbors, not an individual.
For events requiring reservations, members
can Sign-Up starting the day of the current month's
social, either at the specified sign-up person's house or... at that month's
social so they don't have to make a special trip to someone's house or on
the specified date.
- For any event or if paying/renewing your membership,
all checks must be made
payable to Lynnhaven Neighbors, not to an individual.
If you will be away when Sign-Up
for an event begins, we advise that you give or mail your check to a friend
so they can sign up for you. A check MUST accompany a
Cancellation policy is that if you signed up for an event but
can't attend after all, you must contact the person taking
reservations so your name can be removed from the
concerning pre-paid events is that No refunds can be given for cancellations made
after a food order or head count for an event or activity has been
submitted — the contribution made for tickets or 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).
- If an event you signed up for is
Sold Out but you can't attend, you
CANNOT transfer your seats/tickets to a friend; you
must go through the person taking reservations and
keeping the Waiting List. Your
friend will NOT be admitted if not on the admittance list and YOU
will be responsible for reimbursing them. This is to be absolutely
fair to everyone.
has been instituted to allow singles to bring a guest with them to
socials. Single members can purchase one
each year from Membership for $10. The
pass can be used by any person accompanying the Single Member to the event
who does not live in Lynnhaven.
Those who live in Lynnhaven must pay
their membership dues for the year like everyone else. A Guest Pass is
a transferable membership for the year. Only people known
to be single can apply for a Guest Pass.
Non-Member Guests allows members to bring visiting guests or
guests who live in another village (that is, non-Lynnhaven residents) to selected events
the event is opened to guests and/or extra seats are available. A
larger contribution toward the event may be required for/from the guest.
Lynnhaven Neighbors socials are for
Adults Only unless otherwise
stipulated. No children under
the age of 18 will be admitted.
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
Name Badges are provided at monthly
socials, unless the event is held at a larger venue like Laurel Manor.
The badges are kept by the club and picked up by members when
they arrive and check in for an event. They are collected again at the
end of the evening.
There is a 50/50 drawing at most monthly socials. Half
of the money collected is divided among the winners and the other
half goes into the Lynnhaven Neighbors treasury to help fund our socials
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.
For events where the club contributes food or door prizes,
members can choose to not participate in the event but
attend the dinner only. A contribution may be
required for dinner only participants.
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 us. Doors will NOT open and no one will be allowed to
enter 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.
seats for friends should be restricted to no more than 2 seats
per couple. The club wants everyone to feel welcome and
enjoy its socials. Let's all do our part in making Lynnhaven the friendliest
village here in The Villages.
- The Policy for
Golf Events is that event registrations must be paid when registering. Only
current-year Lynnhaven Neighbors members may participate and win money. When
an event is sold out, names may be put onto a Standby List. Should someone
have to cancel, people on the list will be contacted in the order that they
were put on the list — first in, first called.
For Lynnhaven Neighbors golf events played at
Championship courses, greens fees are
over and above the cost of the event and must be paid separately in the
- The Refund
Policy for Golf Events, which are prepaid, is that no refunds can be given for cancellations made
food order or head count for an event or activity has been submitted
— the reservations purchased
If unable to participate after submitting your reservation,
you may NOT
give or sell your reservation to anyone else. Only Dudley Kortright
or the event's co-chair can do this. You
must contact Dudley Kortright
(click on link for email address or call
259-2428) as soon as
possible. He keeps a Standby List of members who did not get their
reservation in before the event was sold out or of people who had to cancel.
If you contact him early enough, he
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 Dudley or the designated co-chair(s) will be barred from playing and their money will not be
refunded... except by you. This is to be absolutely fair to everyone.
