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.

Welcome Matters

Tax Free Benefits
Hello to my true friends. First, I'd like to thank you all for your words of condolence, kindness and support upon the death of my father, Richard Zigrang, a truly wonderful man. He left a hole in a very large family, but we support each other, just as we do at Newcomers.

It was comforting to be able to rely on our Board, especially Crystal, Nicki and Eugenie to carry on the important business of our club while I attended to my father's matters. The dedication of these officers and chairs allowed us to proceed uninterrupted. The positive vote on the dues will mean a smooth transition and strength for the future, permitting us to continue operating as the active group we are today.

All of our activities are the tangible benefits of membership. But the friendships formed and the networks that materialize as a result of these activities are the "freebies" we get that really matter. Some of us moved here to be closer to family and some moved away from those we love. But both moves uproot us and we find our new home much more comfortable because of newcomers. I even get to enjoy a prize from the Craffle, though I could not attend, due to the thoughtfulness of a friend.

So let's take advantage of the opportunities! Make sure to reserve your space at the social on February 25th. Won't it be lovely to enjoy the food and entertainment of the Mediterranean while it will be chilly outside? It's at the Huntsville Country Club, so it will be good to see the place again after several years. And in March, on the 11th, we will take our place, for the first time, in the St. Patrick's Day Parade! It's a short walk, so I hope you'll join in the fun.

Get together for cards-we'll teach you-or get a laugh at bowling. Solve the world's problems (hardly) at Threads and Needles or take in a matinee at Lunch and a Movie. It's Oscar month, after all! Opportunities abound to cement the friendships that hold during good times and bad, happy and sad.

Enjoy our benefits! They are really low cost and TAX FREE!!

In Friendship,

Cathy Brickey
President 2016/2017
