As we say goodbye to 2017, I am thankful for another very productive year…first and foremost, the change from barcodes to Radio Frequency Identification Devices (RFIDs). I thank members, vendors, and employees for working with our RFID vendor and us through the process. If, by some unfortunate circumstance, you still have a barcode, please get your RFID, as the barcode readers are not being repaired and will be deactivated in the first quarter of 2018. A huge thank you to all the volunteers who made this monumental endeavor achievable.
Are you a good listener? Do you find yourself effortlessly encouraging others? Would you like to play games twice a week? If this sounds like you, then we have the perfect opportunity just waiting for you!
The young ladies of The Landings are ready for the spring Girls on the Run program, but we need dedicated volunteers to get started. Girls on the Run is an empowerment program which integrates running/walking with a character development curriculum to encourage preteen girls to develop self-respect and healthy lifestyles.
Thank you to Santa’s Elves -- The Landings' residents! Thanks to your outstanding generosity, there were some very special children in Savannah who did not have to wish upon a star to make their Christmas dreams come true. Again, this year, The Landings Company designated the military families at Hunter Army Airfield and Fort Stewart Air National Guard Base to be the recipients of 2017’s Adopt an Angel Program. These families sacrifice so much for our country and are such close neighbors to The Landings that we thought it fitting to give back to them again this year.
Resolution, a noun, meaning a firm decision to do or not do something. We all are familiar with our steadfast determination to start a new year with a list of resolutions. I know that I meticulously work on mine each December. What I have learned in 2017 is that resolving to do something that is good for my family or me does not need parameters to be achieved. My oldest, and very wise daughter, recently said, “Why do we have to wait for a holiday to be better or make that change?
Artists, do we ever have an evening planned to get your groove on track for 2018! With acclaimed watercolorist Debbie Redden as keynote speaker on January 16, the Landings Art Association (LAA) employs its success formula to the max. Passion, check!
A Special Message from Your Landings Military Family Relief Fund (LMFRF) Board

We all agree that where and how we live is a blessing. We also are blessed to live in a country that provides more freedoms than any place on earth. These freedoms come at a cost and sacrifice, like those made by our military. It is this recognition that is the basis for the establishment of the LMFRF.
