Activities and Events
Go 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. Plans for 2019 include at least one and possibly two Community-Wide Garage Sales and an early summer outdoor live music event called “Porch Fest.” While we no longer have the Highway 380 frontage space required to host Pumpkinville or a Fall Festival, please watch for more details about a new Fall or Holiday Event! 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 their 2019 tour.
