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

At this time of year we celebrate. We celebrate in so many ways and for so many reasons. But the one common denominator is that we celebrate with each other and because of each other. It is in our nature to commune with others and so we gather-with family, with friends, with strangers- around tables, on front porches, in places of worship and at community centers. We gather to celebrate.

I celebrate this year especially because of the joy I have received from the women of Newcomers. To a person, each one whom I have come to know has shared some gift with me and with the club. These are not always tangible: perhaps a hug or a smile, enthusiasm or an offer of help, a word of encouragement. These mean so very much to all of us.

And so we gather, in ways a little different than our usual fare. The Holiday Dinner Party on the 3rd is a bit of entertainment not to be missed. Crystal has a lot of fun in store for us and I'm hoping to get Grace to actually roll the dice at least once. The evening is an elegant and relaxing way to get to know other members and perhaps spouses and friends. Then the Board is hoping that our year-end Holiday Luncheon on the 13th demonstrates our gratitude for the gifts of friendship afforded everyone in Newcomers and that it will be a good way to set the tone for your own personal festivities. I hope to see you all at these two very special celebrations.

In the New Year, we all get to share some of our gifts as we contribute or help with the Craffle. My first such event was last year and how enjoyable it is!! Winning is just icing on the cake. The real treat is seeing what our members can do, what they can put together, what they can create in order to donate prizes. AMAZING!!

Talent, imagination and hard work-I find these three things in all facets of Newcomers. We are truly GIFTED. LET'S GATHER AND CELEBRATE US!

In Friendship,

Cathy Brickey
President 2016/2017
