The Hi Neighbor Club of Kingwood welcomes you to the community! Whether you have just moved to Kingwood, or you are looking for ways to meet people, or you have just retired and have extra time on your hands, we offer you the opportunity to meet lots of new people and enjoy social activities in the community.
Our Hi Neighbor Club was formed in 1974 by two Kingwood neighbors. Our group of women has continued to grow and we now have approximately 350 members. Our main purpose is to invite those new to the area to help you get involved with your community. The Hi Neighbor logo (a heart and coffee cup) represent friendship and the social functions of the club. The cup represents the cup of sugar borrowed from the woman next door, the tea and conversation shared with the lonely lady down the street, the cup of hospitality offered by established club members when they invite a new guest to join them at their luncheon table, and the cup of holiday cheer lifted as our members celebrate the festive season. It also symbolizes the cup of kindness shown by our Kingwood Heartbeat Bears, giving teddy bears to traumatized children and lonely forgotten adults, as well as the overflowing cup of generosity manifested in the donations we give to a variety of community service organizations serving families in the Kingwood, Humble and Houston area.
We have monthly luncheons (September thru May) at various locations, with entertainment. Attendance varies from 80 - 150 per month. We hold New Member Coffees in August and February in a smaller setting (10 to 30 people).
Perhaps the most important part of this club is the nearly 40 Activity Groups we currently have. It is a great way to meet people with the same interests as you -- including, but not limited to, book discussions, bridge, bunco, canasta, golf, lunch, theatre, movies, tennis, and wine tasting. We have 2 philanthropic groups. One is Heartbeat Bears Group which is a wonderful, giving, service group that provides Teddy Bears to Memorial Hermann N.E. Hospital, Texas Children's Hospital, Familytime Crisis & Counseling Center, and more. Kingwood Bag Ladies take plastic grocery-type bags and crochet them into sleeping mats for homeless adults and children.
If you have an interest that doesn't yet have a group, we welcome new groups to form.
Membership in the club (which is required in order to participate in any Activity Group) is just $20 per year. This includes a monthly newsletter and a bi-annual membership directory. You are welcome to try us out, as a guest, before joining. If you have a question about Hi Neighbor, our president will be sure to get you an answer.
