Club Activities

The Newcomers Club offers a wide variety of activities each month.  Members are free to attend as many or few as they like.

The below events are planned by our board and committee members who graciously volunteer their time. The number of events offered each year depends on the number of members volunteering to coordinate them. If you are a current member who would like to volunteer, please contact us. 

Book Club - Book Club meets monthly at a members home. Books are assigned a few months in advance so you have plenty of time to read. Feel free to come even if you haven't read the book.

Children's Playgroups - Playgroups are assigned in August based on children's age and schedule availability. You meet with the same group of moms and kids each week so you really have a chance to make some new friends.  We also try to schedule an evening or weekend playgroup to accommodate working moms. If you join the club mid-year, you can be added to an existing playgroup. We also offer drop-in playgroups for those who can't commit to the same day every week and occasional weekend playdates that are open to the whole club.

C
hix at the Flix - When was the last time you actually got out to see a movie? Now you can! Get together with fellow members for a fun night out at the movies.
 
Community Outreach - The Community Outreach Committee selects organizations to partner with and schedules donation drives and/or workdays throughout the year. Our Ways and Means Committee spearheads fundraising efforts for local nonprofit organizations.

Craft N Chat - Sometimes Craft N Chat is an opportunity to work on whatever project you happen to be doing, and sometimes we will have a specific craft in mind for everyone to make.

Family Fun Events - Bring the entire family out for some fun and to make new friends.

Fun & Fit - Join fellow members and get in shape.  Activities vary from sampling classes at local fitness facilities to starting a walking/running group.

Game Night/Bunco - Want some friendly competition? Game night meets at a member's home. The hostess usually picks the game and events are either women only or co-ed. 

General Meetings/Programs - General meetings are held monthly from September to May. Each month has a different theme, but every year we have a December Cookie Exchange and the May Gala, which is usually a co-ed cocktail party.


Girls' Night Out
- These have included mani/pedi parties, line dancing and more! The club usually coordinates 1-2 nicer events each year, where we might go into the city or go out for a nice brunch.

Guys' Night Out
- Sometimes husbands need to get out too. Past events have included poker nights, golf outings, and trivia nights.

Happy Hour - Join us as we gather at local bars/restaurants to take advantage of their drink specials during the week.

Moms & Tots - The club organizes weekday outings for parents with kids and park dates in the summer. In the past, we have done holiday parties and Easter egg hunts, trips to Lincoln Marsh and St. James Farm, and MyGym and Music Together classes.

Socials - Most socials are co-ed, adult-only events held at a local bar/restaurant or a member's house. We usually have 3-5 events a year. While the club subsidizes many of these events, they sometimes have additional fees so we can do something really special.

Supper Club - Join a few other couples at a member's house for a nice dinner. A theme is picked, and everyone brings a dish. At these smaller get-togethers, members really get the chance to visit more.

Sunshine & Clouds Meals - Having a baby or surgery? Have you had a death in the family? Let the treasurer know, and fellow club members will sign up to bring you meals.
 
Tennis/ Golf Club - Meets on weekends from May to October (weather permitting). Events are co-ed, and all skill levels are welcome! (We provide the tennis balls and occasionally offer group lessons with a certified instructor)
