    Hi Everyone!

    I have been enjoying the forums since February when I started planning my move to SoWal from New Orleans. Now I am finally here in sunny Seacrest Beach!

    I moved to the area for work, and do not know anyone, so I could really use the advice of the forum on how I can get out and about in the community, get involved, and meet people. Know of any social groups, clubs, volunteer organizations????

    I will really look forward to hearing all of your great tips, and hopefully bumping into you some time in SoWal!!!

    Sharon Vaughn

    :welcome: volunteers are alway needed in the schools, the library, the gift shops at Eden and the hospital...the list goes on. Explore an area you are interested in and soon you will have more to do than you can fit into a day.

    Remember, go to the beach often:D

    I definitely am in paradise! I went to a meeting the other day to get involved with CVHN and the Cottags for Kids fundraiser, that will be great fun for a great cause! I am going to the wine tasting tonight at Wild Olives... I will be continuing to search the forums for new and interesting things to do!

    Hello yet another great Louisiana transplant.
    We just moved here from BR. If you get home sick, we love to cook cajun foods, and watch LSU sports.

    There are a variety of organizations you can join depending on various levels of interest and time (have to have plenty for enjoying the Gulf!). Arts -- the Cultural Arts Association and plenty of ways to get involved with things like Arts Quest, Flutterby, etc. Community -- the South Walton Community Council is a group interested in the area. Business -- the Walton County Chamber of Commerce and related events, lunches and business after hours. Politics -- both the Republican and Democrat parties have organizations that are open to the public to get involved. Other -- Friends of Eden, Children's Volunteer Health Network, local churches, etc. .. list is endless.
