For meeting everyone, harvesting all the forest harvest points, and doing both side jobs when you can talk to the townsfolk.

List of All First Time Character Meeting Timetables
So on that first Thursday, Myer gives you the quest to meet 10 of the townspeople, but you may want to just meet everyone that day to make it easier to find them with your dog later. I do have the Quality of Life mod installed from NexusMods to increase player speed to make this a lot easier and allow me to harvest in the forest on the side. This guide also assumes you have all the town warps activated as well.
This is the rough timetable that I found to get as many characters at once as possible. You can obviously find some of the characters in various other locations, but I didn’t search for them outside of these group spots for efficiency. I do include doing the side jobs as well as progressing quests just on this first Thursday. As you meet the townsflok, it should trigger scenes as well.
