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.

My two cents...

April is here! Wow, we have an exciting month. Starting with the coffee on April 3rd, then we have all our regular interest groups, the fashion show on the tenth, and the social on the fifteenth. "Have a Blast in Huntsville" is our fashion show scheduled for April tenth: we will view fashions from Christopher and Bank, visit with friends and vote on the next board. Please come to the Jackson Center to see what makes Huntsville special! I am sure you will not want to miss this event. Be sure to plan to come out the following weekend for the "Western Suds, Boots and Brews" event at Old Black Bear. If you want, wear your cowboy gear and try out a locally brewed beverage! I heard that there were prizes.

Laughter and a sense of humor softens the roughness of life. I love smiling and laughter -- I really do not think that there is a better sound in the world than that of joyous laughter. Francis Bacon once said, "Imagination was given to man to compensate him for what he is not; a sense of humor to console him for what he is." Studies have shown that laughter and sharing a sense of humor is good for us. It strengthens friendships, improves health, counteracts stress and reduces anxiety. There is a lot of truth in the statement "Laughter is the best medicine."

There is even a new trend in exercise called Laughter Yoga. Laughter Yoga is based on the belief that voluntary laughter provides the same benefits as spontaneous laughter. It is done in groups with jokes and playfulness between participants. While it is definitely a physical exercise (think internal calisthenics); it is also an excellent exercise in contagious laughter.

Studies confirm that laughter has many benefits - reduces stress, increases health-enhancing hormones, improves memory, enhances mood, and improves creativity among others. Laughing is good for you and good for others.

So bearing in mind all the benefits of laughter -- go out and laugh, see a comedy, blow some bubbles, even fly a kite. Also, take a friend or two with you! "Laugh and the world laughs with you"

In friendship and laughter,
