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.

From the Heart...

Hello August! I have heard it said that "August is the Sunday of Summer." The start of a new school year is upon us, the best of summer is behind us and we anxiously await the cooling temps that are promised with the call of fall.

For our club, August means we are back in action with a full calendar and activities aplenty to offer. It's a great time to try something new or return to some of your favorites. So fill up the card tables, dust off your bowling shoes or grab the next book club selection and retreat to your favorite air-conditioned nook. Looking to Pamper your Palate? Potluck, Punch 'n Lunch and Lunch after the Coffee, are all waiting for you to pull up a seat around the table.

For a fun morning with the girls, don't miss our Get Acquainted Coffee on Tuesday, August 7th! July taught us you just never know what Ms. Ann and her fabulous hospitality team will have up their sleeves! Plus, you'll meet "Ms. August," the next anticipated speaker in our "Women to Watch" series. Remember to invite your new neighbors and share the story of Newcomers with any new to Huntsville gals you meet as you are about town in the Rocket City. A personal invitation will always be the best way to grow our club and may just be the encouragement the friends we haven't met yet need to feel comfortable in their new surroundings.

I am looking forward to our first General Meeting Luncheon of the year on Tuesday, August 14th! Our very own "lunch lady", Alyson has a wonderful day lined up for us, featuring a local park ranger from the Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge. I hope you will plan to attend! Also at the luncheon, the proposed budget for the coming year will be presented for approval. I'd like to extend a big "Thank You" to Barbara Stansky, Treasurer, for her dedication and assistance with this year's budget proposal.

Shirl's plans for Tours this month will help you "beat the heat" as we retreat to the cool corners of Cathedral Caverns. And, Maria is making plans for our first social of the year, which will take place in September. A Mexican Fiesta will be the perfect party to enjoy the last taste of summer before we start thinking about all our holiday plans. Don't miss this casual, fun event!

Our club is full of talented, diverse and creative women and there is truly a place for everyone here! Do you have a knack, flair or skill you could share? Please consider where you might be able to best serve our club. Volunteer to serve on a committee, be a greeter, or jump in as a First New Friend. You never know who you might meet along the way!

If you are just finding your way to Newcomers we encourage you to dive in! Find an Interest Group that speaks to you and GO! Our activities schedule and small group settings are the best way to get plugged in and get to know your fellow Newcomers. Take the first step and you'll find an entire community of women waiting to take the next step in friendship with you!

Your President,


Join us!
