Welcome to the Spring Ridge Friends and Neighbors Club!

Being an active participant of the Friends & Neighbors (FAN) Club provides opportunities to meet interesting and fun people who live right here in Spring Ridge. Enjoy learning about fascinating topics at a monthly meeting, or join an interest group like our book club, Bunco groups, Chick Flick Fridays, lunch and dinner groups, beer and wine tasting groups—and more! 

Where else could you gather at a neighbor’s house to enjoy the ambience of a Titanic 100th anniversary party? Or cheer on Team USA at an Olympic-themed party? Or taste wines from a local vineyard with commentary by true wine enthusiasts? 

Since its founding in 1994, the FAN Club has offered Spring Ridge residents a wide range of interesting events, programs and interest group activities, as well as the opportunity to form friendships with people you may have never otherwise met! FAN Club members also reach out to the community through various club sponsored service projects during the year. 

At just $25 a year per family, and low or no-cost events, the FAN Club is a great way for individuals and couples to connect with fellow Spring Ridge residents in relaxed and entertaining settings. 

Here’s What a few of our members say about why they enjoy the FAN Club:

“The sincere friendships.”

“The friendships and dynamism, the activities and there’s no need to drive far.”

“Support and friends in various groups! It’s such a great club!”

“Everyone is so friendly, kind, genuine, and caring.”

“Meeting people, making friends. It’s our main social contact!”

“The book group for its discussions; I’ve read books I never would have picked myself. This widens a person’s perspective. I also love the creativity of the group—it’s amazing.”

“I like the ‘Chick Flicks.’ They are cozy movie viewings at different member’s homes. Bunco is also lots of fun; we play, but chat with friends all night!”

“Wine Tasters—I enjoy learning and tasting different wines.”

“I like small gatherings, like the Book Club and Chick Flicks, but I also love large gatherings such as the Titanic and holiday parties. I also appreciate the interesting information from the meetings at the Visitor’s Center.”

Sound like fun? Would you like to learn more?  We meet regularly at the Spring Ridge Visitor Center at 7 pm with an annual kick-off event in September. Watch the marquee sign in front of the Visitor’s Center for meeting reminders. Or, join us at an interest group meeting or at one of our special events! We hope you can join us!
