We all were new here once. Even natives became first time homeowners and there were things to learn about settling into a home - and a new neighborhood.

I was thinking about what a newcomer had posted - about feeling isolated - and I was wondering what kind of info we more established members of the area could give them that would help them get settled in.

So if you would be so kind . . . what bit of information or resource helped you when you moved here (or moved into a new home?)

For example, if you have a website about schools, link that website.

If you have a club or activity that helped you get integrated into the community, link their info.

If you have a favorite pediatrician or physician practice, share that.

Carpet store?

Plumber?

Electrician?

Landscaping company?

Driver's license agency location?

If you all would take a few moments, we could fill up a thread with really helpful info that could answer a lot of questions a newcomer might have.
