  • In 1941 Union Bag & Paper Corporation bought a portion of Skidaway Island for use as a source of pinewood for the Savannah paper mill.
  • By 1953, pulpwood cultivation by barge became uneconomical and for the next 20 years nature again took over the island, returning it to its natural beauty. In 1956 Union Bag merged with the Camp Manufacturing Company to become Union Camp Corporation.

  • Most people will agree that nothing sparks a memory quicker than a song. To remember the years gone by and to help celebrate the community’s 50th Anniversary, we’ve developed a playlist of some of the most popular songs from the past five decades. 
  • Put on this Landings 50th Anniversary playlist and pass the time while you exercise, work, or relax. If you don’t have Spotify Premium, you still can listen to this playlist by setting up a free Spotify account. The only difference is with a free account, you will have to endure a few commercial breaks and may not be able to skip tracks. No worries; the music is worth it!

Landings Association Board Nominating Committee Chair
  • It is that time of year again for The Landings Association (TLA) to accept nominations for the 2023 Board of Directors.
  • Last year,  we had a phenomenal amount of interest, and our committee had the difficult task of narrowing down some very qualified residents to the six who would ultimately run. I am happy to say that many of the others went on to join TLA committees.
  • Serving on the Board is a commitment and a responsibility, but it also is very fulfilling work.
  • The good news is, as an active member of the Board, you still will have plenty of time to enjoy the Landings lifestyle. In fact, one of our current board members holds a full-time job, and two of us run consulting businesses, yet we have time for TLA-related business and leisure activities.
  • The deadline for applications is July 11.
