2019 Ft Johnson Estates

Civic Club Membership Drive

Dear Fort Johnson Estates Residents,

It's time for our annual membership drive for 2019! As Civic Club members, residents are entitled to reduced clubhouse rental rates during the year. Members are also offered reduced rates for swimming pool memberships.

The annual dues help cover our utility expenses for the front entrances and clubhouse facilities, providing newsletters, and sponsoring neighborhood events such as educational socials, happy hours, pot luck dinners, and annual holiday events.

We are grateful to our continued members and are hopeful that more FJE residents will become members. Annual membership is $60 and runs March to March. Consider donating extra funds, as a "Foundation Circle Member" by giving at least $100, which will help fund future projects. A tax-deductible donation receipt will be provided by the Fort Johnson Community Foundation for gift amounts over $60. Please join and actively participate in the Civic Club.

Thank you,

FJE Civic Club Board

The Civic Club relies heavily on volunteers who serve on the board and various committees in an effort to maintain and improve the clubhouse, clubhouse grounds, FJE entrances, etc.  If you'd like to help in any way, please feel free to attend the next board meeting and offer your input.  If interested, the board member duties and by-laws are outlined at the links below...

The Civic Club Board strives to provide the best service possible for the Ft. Johnson Estates neighborhood, but is limited with regard to finances and resources.  While we have the largest Civic Club membership in years, we'd like to have more participation considering the annual dues are only $60 per year.  By becoming a Civic Club member, you'll not only have a vote at the annual meetings, but will receive discounts for pool membership and clubhouse rentals as well!  If you'd like to join the Civic Club, you can download the application form at the link below and join for 2019...

Clubhouse Rentals

The clubhouse is always available to rent for meetings or parties.  Our rental coordinators are Stacey and David Daffin and they can be reached via email at civicclub@ftjohnsonestates.com or by phone at 843-406-6690.  A copy of the clubhouse rental agreement can be downloaded at the link below...

Clubhouse Renovations

Our recent "Renovation Celebration" social at the Civic Club was a great opportunity for the neighborhood to get together and see the newly renovated clubhouse.  The Civic Club Board presented a plaque to show appreciation for the hard work and many volunteer hours that went into improving the clubhouse.  The five FJE residents honored were Toby Stewart, Todd King, David and Stacey Daffin, and Allan Allbright. 

  The old kitchen was torn out and replaced with new cabinets and appliances, all of which were donated by Todd King.  The bathrooms were completely renovated with new toilets and vanities, the floors were resurfaced throughout the building, the walls were freshly painted, and the trim and baseboards were replaced all around.   

More recently, the clubhouse exterior has been updated with a new metal roof and a fresh coat of  paint all around.  Again, all of the paint and roofing materials  were donated by FJE residents who continue to support the clubhouse renovations by volunteering their time to make these improvements happen. 

Community Foundation

The Community Foundation serves several functions for Ft Johnson Estates.  It owns and manages the land for the clubhouse and pool and holds the lease agreements for both.  It also sponsors the annual Swamp Angel Oyster Roast every January.

The slate of nominees for the Board of Directors for the upcoming year was voted and approved at the 2018 Annual Meeting on September 11th...
