Welcome, 2019! Thank You to everyone who graciously donated to our successful fundraisers benefitting the Humane Society and The Angel Tree. The blankets, toys, and treats were welcomed by the adoptable dogs, and each of them had a warm and merry holiday season. The Dog Park family also stepped up generously to fulfill the wishes of two children.

We have some good news for book lovers! The Village Library will sell books for $10 a bag on the last Friday of each month. The next sale date is January 25. Here’s how it works: On the last Friday of the month, drop by the Library and purchase a bag at the front desk, then go to the Ann Litten wing and fill your bag to the brim with our sale books. Then head home with treasures to read, gift, share, or just use to decorate your shelves.

Did you know Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) Skidaway raises money each year for the fishery management and stocking programs for our Landings lagoons, which is not funded through The Landings Association’s budget?

Family Promise provides comprehensive services to transition families from homelessness to housing and employment. HUGS uses a preventive approach by providing professional counseling, family support, and community outreach to local at-risk youth.

It’s said that a single photograph of Yosemite Park started the ball rolling for a U.S. National Park Service in 1916.

For the past two months, there have been multiple reports of sick or dying raccoons in The Landings. Landings Association staff recently met with representatives from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Georgia Department of Natural Resources (GADNR), and Chatham County Animal Services to understand better the authority and proper procedures as it relates to sick and dying raccoons.
