Social Life at The Preserve
The Preserve offers a full and diverse array of social activities. The 11 members of the Social Committee are experts at bringing people together to share common interests and make lasting friends.
Happy Hours at the Lodge are scheduled every other Sunday from May through mid-September. Bring an appetizer to share and your favorite beverage, and mingle with your neighbors. The Nature Lawn and Lodge is also the site for our annual picnic in June. Good ol’ Southern barbeque is always on the menu, along with volleyball, croquet and bocci. Autumn brings our Fall Fest in October. This year we are resurrecting the chili competition. On Dec. 31, we say hello to the new year with a Progressive Dinner. Neighbors open their beautiful homes to host appetizers, dinner and dessert. It is a special way for a community to say goodbye to the old and welcome the new together.
The Social Committee also sponsors year-round events. Mountain Women’s Lunch Bunch meets in local restaurants and also travels to surrounding mountain towns. This year, Gibbs Gardens, Toccoa River Restaurant and a tea room in Woodstock are anticipated, among others.
Independent of the Social Committee, special interest groups have formed, including a book club, a ladies’ night out and a men’s night out.
Social extras in 2019 include a tour bus adventure to a Braves game and a DJ-hosted ’50s sock hop.
In The Preserve at Sharp Mountain, no excuse is needed to get together.
