Life on the island can be leisurely or hectic. It often depends on how many clubs and organizations to which a person belongs. The primary civic associations aim toward maintaining a culture and a quality of life consistent with the island being a state park.
This Website, jekyllcitizens.org, is designed, built and operated by the Jekyll Island Citizens Association, and provides links to the web presence for the other major organizations on the island - including the Arts Association and Friends of Historic Jekyll Island. You will also find information on the Rotary Club, the Lions Club, island churches, and numerous other organizations. If you are interested in golf, croquet, weaving, pottery or some other leisure activity, chances are there is an organization on Jekyll that is waiting for you. By clicking on the Organizations tab above, the drop-down list shows which organizations have a page here. Just click on the organization you are interested in. Each organization has its own page, with information on meeting times, activities, officers and how to join. Likewise, you can find information on Jekyll churches.
The Association's Facebook page, Jekyll Island Citizens Association, @jekyllcitizens provides news and links to upcoming events. There are also two bulletin boards, located outside the post office and in the beach village, with current event posters and information.
The Association also periodically sends emails to those interested in Jekyll Island, keeping them informed about activities on the Island, whether they be minutes of a Jekyll Island Authority meeting, an upcoming event or legislation pertaining to the Island. If you are not a JICANet subscriber and would like to be, just submit your e-mail address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
