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

One of my joys in life is the ROAD TRIP. Yes, I know the Rally was an August event and I hope you had tons o' fun, but a road trip can happen anytime, anywhere. It is the uncovering of the unknown, the newness of a fresh vista, the thrill of the "find"! Since we are "new" to this little section of Alabama all exploration can start with a simple Road Trip.

Besides a Road Rally, we at Newcomers have so many occasions that we can call "road trips". We come from all corners of the county-as far north as Tennessee, east past Gurley, south past the river and west to Athens. Our central location may be the library once a month but then we rev our engines and take off to parts unknown to partake in the events we offer. Remember Dr. Seuss? "Oh the places you'll go!"

And discovery is our reward. In August we met at a brand new venue for lunch, Campus 805, The Stone Center, and we toured the sculptures set around the county for the Rally. This month, again, we go far and wide. The tour is west to beautiful Mooresville, a step back in time. Long day Bridge is in the other direction, in Gurley, a place surrounded by roads that provide rural scenes galore. "It's opener there in the wide open air." Head toward the River for Punch 'n Lunch or Hand N Foot (on opposite sides of the arsenal) or toward Tennessee for Couples Euchre. "There is fun to be done, there are points to be scored, there are games to be won!"

And so we provide the opportunities to venture, to explore, to discover. Have you ever driven the full length of Dug Hill Road? Yes, let's look at these as opportunities, not the hassle of a drive across town. Just think-take a circuitous route and you will unearth things you never knew were there and maybe some things to remember to come back to visit. And as a bonus to carpoolers- we get to know each other on a more personal level with deeper conversations than those afforded over the throw of the dice or the deal of the cards. What a nice reward for not skipping the fun because it is "too far".

So Ladies, next time you find that your event is "over the mountain" or "way out in Madison", let's get ready for that road trip!!

In Friendship,
Cathy Brickey, President
