We have friends in all areas of TV. Attending parties, meetings, golf groups, and social events. Since we have moved 3 times we do not consider just our neighborhood our only friend pool.
For us driving a car or cart more than 15 minutes is not a big deal, after all for most you are retired, what’s a 20 minute drive out of your 24 hour day.

Though we definitely socialize with our immediate neighbors, what boomer says has proven to be the case with us. We've got friends from the Historic end of The Villages down to Fenney thanks to the different social clubs and activities we are involved in. People who move here seem eager to be friendly (though that may be equally true for anybody moving to any retirement community).

So far we have only socialized with friend that bought before us. They are somewhat spread out but we cart on over to hang out or meet them at the centers.

We are very friendly with all of the villa-gers in our villas neighborhood. We are blessed with wonderful neighbors. We meet once monthly for TGIM, which is held at a different home on the first Monday of the month, for apps, chats and wine. Starts at 5:00 p.m. and ends at 6:30. You must take home anything you brought, which makes it so no-hassle. It’s wonderful. On the second Tuesday of the month we meet at the rec center for a catered or potluck meal and entertainment.

Bottom line: our neighbors all care for one another and are aware of what you’re doing. So we’re very close.

HenryK, I like what you and your neighbors do. It sounds like a great way to cultivate friendships and at the same time, keep an eye out for neighbors who might need a little extra help.
