Fearrington Cares Ambassadors are neighbors helping neighbors live healthier, happier, and safer lives here in Fearrington Village. Whether you’re a new resident or an old friend who’s lived here for years, we’re ready to help you take advantage of all the programs and services available through Fearrington Cares. Best of all, there’s never a charge for our help.
The Ambassadors program is in full swing in 13 Village neighborhoods! If you’re a new neighbor, no doubt someone’s already knocked at your door or sent an email or text to say hello. We hope you keep your Fearrington Cares At-a-Glance reference card handy, perhaps on your fridge using your new Fearrington Cares magnet.
From time to time, you’ll be hearing from your Ambassador about our programs and services, especially as we expand reopening the Fearrington Cares building.
Burned out overhead light bulb? Let us know if you need a handy person. Or a ride to the doctor’s or dentist’s office. Need a break from unpacking boxes? Join one of our morning Zoom movement classes (link on our main webpage). Need a good electrician or plumber? Check out our online Vendor Referral List.

Have you been wondering how to help maintain the high quality of life that Fearrington Village provides? One good way to “give back” is to serve as an Ambassador for Fearrington Cares. The main job of an Ambassador is to greet new neighbors soon after they move in and acquaint them with the services and programs of Fearrington Cares. Also, each Ambassador is asked to host at least two informal get-togethers a year—simple coffees or wine and cheese socials to which both new and established neighbors are invited to come, meet one another, and learn about current Fearrington Cares services.
Fearrington Village has 17 Ambassadors now, but we are seeking many more to cover every neighborhood. We need Ambassadors for Beechmast and Beechmast Close, Camden Park South, some Countryhouse Closes, Henderson Place, the Historic District, The Knolls, McDowell Place, Montgomery, Richmond, Rutherford Close, Spindlewood, and The Woods. Current Ambassadors would love to have help, especially for Camden East, Millcroft, and Weathersfield.
Please contact one of the following people if you’d like to know more about becoming a Fearrington Cares Ambassador: Janine Griffin (336-209-4204, email@example.com), Anne Henkels (919-542-2164, firstname.lastname@example.org), Cathy Somer (919-533-6559, email@example.com), or Karen Metzguer (919-542-6877, firstname.lastname@example.org). You don’t have to live in a neighborhood to be an Ambassador! Welcoming neighbors who live in a different neighborhood is a great way to meet new people.
