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

My two cents...

Happy December! I love this time of year. The hustle, bustle, traveling and visiting. I love cooking for family and friends. To me it truly is 'the most wonderful time of the year.'

We had a wonderful Craffle in November, Nicki and her committee did a wonderful job of organization and execution of all the components to a terrific event. I was truly impressed with the various crafts that were displayed. Oh my! The craffle items were beautiful and numerous. I think everyone went home with a prize.

We were able to complete our General Meeting and the vote regarding the two proposed bylaw changes. Both proposed changes were approved. We will have the updated bylaws posted to the website in short order.

December always reminds me of one of the characteristics of friendship -- sharing life events. That characteristic that means you spend time together, recognize important events and participate in the mundane. I truly believe that there is no substitute for investing time into our relationships. It reminds me of this comic:
 

Helen Keller said "Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much." We have several options coming up to share time together, First is the December Get Acquainted Coffee - where we will share our "Favorite Holiday Memories", then it is onto the Holiday Dinner Party 'All That Glitters' on the ninth at the Summit at Redstone. You will want to get your ticket, and maybe a new outfit, as I understand that we will have the opportunity to have holiday photos taken with the lovely decorations. And then we can all get together at Ruth's Chris for the Holiday Luncheon 'Friendship Makes the Holidays Sweeter' hosted by your board on 12/12. We will have the music group "Celtic Blessings" playing a variety of music, seasonal, Celtic, and others. This will be a real treat. We have a rare December Special Event; The Living Christmas Tree. Be sure to contact Me Maria Granica if you are interested in attending with us. Don't forget that we have Trees at both the Tinsel Trail and The Festival of Trees - each one celebrating our club.

We have the privilege of supporting CSNA again this year with their Gift Wrap project -- contact Marcy Warnick if you want to help. Our other holiday charity opportunities include the American Red Cross which is our charity of choice for the Holiday Dinner Party and you can make your personal donations at the coffee or the party. We will also continue to collect non-perishable food for the Manna House Food Pantries at the coffee and then the luncheon. Additionally, Peggy Deutch is still looking for assistance with stuffing the Momma Bags.

Whew, we have a lot of opportunities this month - while some of the interest groups take a break others will still meet -- bowling, bunco, card games, and others. I am sure you will be able to find an activity to enjoy.

Nicholas Sparks said "Sometimes the most ordinary things could be made extraordinary, simply by doing them with the right people." I want to be one of the 'right people' for my friends here in NCGH. Let's continue to do things, life, celebrations, traditions together as friends here in Newcomers.

Happy Holidays to each and everyone of you,

Crystal
