Activities and Events

Tucker Hill Concert on the Lawn ActivityGo beyond the intricate design of our new home community, and you’ll discover another reason that Tucker Hill is different.  We couldn’t boast about keeping our focus on people if we didn’t go that extra mile and offer planned activities and events for our residents.  To accomplish this goal, Southern Land Company partners with a Lifestyle Coordinator.

Contrary to popular belief, a Lifestyle Coordinator’s main objective is not to organize bingo tournaments or arts and crafts sessions.  Tucker Hill’s Lifestyle Coordinator plays a distinct and important role from day one. She plans a variety of monthly events and activities, both on and off-site. Then, she ensures that all residents are kept up-to-date on the ever-changing selection of opportunities for people to meet one another and develop friendships.  She also assists in facilitating the activities and events sponsored by the community’s various clubs and committees.

The Lifestyle Coordinator is there to help everyone from children, teens, parents, singles, and empty-nesters connect with their neighbors.

Activities and Events Open to the Public

The general public, along with our residents, also enjoy a select number of annual community events that will vary from year-to-year.  In 2019, we’ve promoted two Community-Wide Garage Sales and an early summer outdoor live music event called “Porch Fest.”   In year’s past, Tucker Hill has also been included in Chestnut Square’s annual holiday home tour, and is always hopeful to have another home included in the future.  Our community is also open to playing host to non-profit organizations looking for a venue for their own event.  For partnership ideas, please email to start the conversation.  For the latest in what’s coming up, check out our Tucker Hill News page
