Who To Contact?

The Welcome Committee has created a list of groups, clubs, committees, and other helpful information to help all new residents and/or those that have been here awhile learn what is available in Tanglewood. We call this the “Who to Contact” list. This is updated throughout the year as new groups, clubs or committees are formed and information of existing groups change. Note the date on the right hand bottom of the document which shows the last date changed. All new residents that we visit are given a copy of this list but since this list can change, the latest version is on the Home page of Twrtimes. Just look on the left side under Upcoming Events and click on the Who to Contact 2018-2019 link under Welcome Committee.

Leaving for the Summer or for a month or more?

For those that leave for the summer, we want to make sure people taking off for the summer or who will be gone a month or more have a copy of our Check Off List for Closing Your Tanglewood Home For The Summer_PDF.  This gives many tips on what needs to be done to make sure you find your home in good shape, when you return.

General Information For All New Residents
All new homeowners and those on the “lease to buy” program are visited in their home by a member of the Welcome Committee. A Welcome Bag is provided with information that will help them learn about what is going on in Tanglewood during that visit. Information about the surrounding area is also included with various giveaways from local banks, hospitals, and the Chamber of Commerce. Business cards and/or flyers from other Tanglewood residents who offer a product or service are also included as well as some outside vendors.
Be our guests at Monday Morning Coffee in the main clubhouse at the Welcome Table starting at 8 AM. Just look for the big yellow welcome sign on the table near the front door inside the hall. Get introduced to everyone, have your picture taken and learn what will be going on in the park. It is also a great time to ask any questions you may have. Please bring your badge and coffee cup. The Monday Morning Coffee meeting starts at 8:30 AM. What is going to happen in the upcoming week(s) is announced. If any changes are made on the weekly calendar, it is also announced at this time. It is a great way to meet your neighbors and become a part of the community whether you are here for a short time or forever!
If you are a new RVer in the Outback, please join us at the Welcome Table at 8 AM. We want to meet and greet you. If you have any questions as an RVer, call or visit Les and Arlene Thayer who work for Hometown America as Outback Hosts during the winter months.
