Welcome to our Website

    Welcome to the Newcomers Club of Greater Huntsville. We are a friendly, vibrant, fun-loving women's organization. Most of us are Huntsville or Madison residents, but we have members from as far west as Athens and as far north as the Tennessee border. The club offers you an opportunity to make lasting friendships while learning about northern Alabama. There is at least one activity every week — anything from casual luncheon potlucks to all-day bridge sessions to area tours. Check out our Facebook Page.   Click here to view our history page.

    The Newcomers Club is non-sectarian, non-political, and non-commercial. If you have moved to the area within the last three years, you are eligible to join. Want more information on membership? Click here.

President's Letter

WOW! What a completely lovely day we had at our Spring Fashion Show! Our Fashion Show Committee hit it out of the park with gorgeous décor, delicious buffet offerings, spectacular raffle prizes and the most fun photo booth ever! Our models were gorgeous in their spring ensembles provided by Christopher and Banks and had a blast on the catwalk. Special thanks to our Committee Chairs Diane Delaney and Marcy Warnick and all who served on their team to pull off such a fun-filled day for NCGH.

There is still room available for you to "Get on the Bus!" and join us for a trip to Andrew Jackson's Hermitage, just outside of Nashville. The Junior Docents will be on hand in period costume that day and everything from transportation to lunch and your tour(s) is included in your cost. The time spent together promises to be a day full of friendship and adventure, and your spouses and guests are welcome to attend. Don't delay – Space is limited! In the coming weeks, I will be passing the gavel to Rebecca Humpal and her Board. I wish them every success in the coming year and am confident they will continue in our long-standing tradition of welcoming new friends to Huntsville, all while continuing to serve our long term members.

As my year as your President comes to a close, I am filled with appreciation and gratitude for the team of amazing women who have served with me. From my Board of Directors to the Leaders of the Standing Committees, you gave of your talents, dedication, support, and best of all, your friendship. I am a firm believer in the power of surrounding myself with people whose wisdom and experiences far out-weigh my own; and without a doubt, your strengths complemented my weakness. I am proud of all we have accomplished together this year. I was blessed this year to have more than one advisor on speed dial, and I couldn't have done my job without them. Thank you Crystal, I am forever grateful for your friendship and assistance from anywhere in the country. Special thanks to Cathy for your counsel, experience, and honesty. You have been my sounding board, my rock and friend; and all our laughter surely kept me sane. To my neighbor extraordinaire, trusted advisor, fashion editor and on call proofreader, Lynne McIntyre, you have gone above and beyond the call of duty, my friend.

One of my goals as your President this year included overseeing a new website build for our club. Special thanks to Dona Pratt for all her work heading our website committee this year. In the fall, Dona led the committee and spent countless hours researching all the website options available to us. She continued this spring, serving at my side as we worked to see this goal come to fruition. Dona, I can't thank you enough for your patience and professionalism, as well as the many hours we spent combing through photos, our late night work sessions, your attention to detail and dedication to this project.

To our many special event and interest group leaders: you are vital to the health, success and growth of our club; and I appreciate the time and effort you put into your positions. Thank you for your service to NCGH. There are so many of you I would love to be able to thank by name; please know you have not been forgotten, but space here limits me.

To our members, YOU are what makes us great! Thank You for supporting and encouraging me throughout the year. Your participation spoke volumes as you turned out for Socials, Luncheon, Interest Groups, Special Events and "Get-Acquainted" Coffees. Not only have you laughed at my silliness, but you accepted me (flaws and all) and allowed me to be true to myself. I am humbled and honored and will never forget the trust you placed in me. What a gift!

As I end my term, I want to thank you for the opportunity to serve as your President. It has been my privilege. I have enjoyed this year immensely and will remember it fondly. You have taught me so much, and I am grateful for the experience to lead such a dynamic group of women.

Your President,

Join us!
