The New Villagers Club - Tellico Lake

Best Tennessee Lake Community of the Year

After the movers have left and the last item has been placed, the next step can be the most challenging for those beginning a new life in a new place. A traditional meet-and-greet of the neighbors can be nerve-racking for new homeowners, but Tellico Village Named Best Tennessee Community of the Year knows how to make you feel at home quickly through its New Villagers Club which meets on the first Thursday of the month.

The New Villagers Club was created in the early 1990’s by a handful of residents living in the community and is an important asset to the community. The Club is a nonprofit organization that encourages new members to meet and build lasting friendships with organized activities and events. More than 400 members are actively involved in The New Villagers Club, the core foundation of Tellico Village social clubs.  

Here’s how it works. On the first Thursday of every month, the New Villagers Club meets at the Tellico Village Yacht Club for a social/happy hour. This is a casual event to introduce new members to the community and share more about themselves while having a good time. During the first meeting, new members get a chance to learn about all of the Tellico Village social clubs. New members are placed with a mentor to introduce them to the residents and culture of the community.

Once the initial meet-and-greet is over, New Villagers can enjoy a fun filled calendar of social events and organizations at whatever pace they choose. Golf Tournaments are scheduled for individuals looking to spend a day on the golf course. Outdoor adventures are always around the corner when New Villagers join the Muddy Boots hiking group. Welcome Coffee is another introduction to the community and invites residents to learn about Tellico Village and the host, the Homeowner’s Association. 

The New Villagers Club organizes social dining gatherings for members at restaurants outside of the Tellico Village. For those who love to play host and hostess, the Dinner For Six program rotates dinner parties at residents’ homes every 3 months. Couples or single residents have a chance to impress each other with their family recipes. 

The fun does not stop there when deciding where to retire in Eastern Tennessee. New Villagers can participate in the Cards and Games program. The members organize 14 games to help bring together current and new residents, to build lasting friendships within the community. An exciting game of Poker or a brain-scratching game of Scrabble helps break the ice no matter what the occasion.

Whether a new villager is interested in making new friends or finding a new hobby, the New Villager’s Club journey begins at the initial Happy Hour at the Tellico Village Yacht Club. Through the New Villagers Club, every new resident who desires has immediate access to a treasure trove of new friends, many of whom will last for life time.
