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.

HONESTY
Time of year -- Reflection, Fresh Start

My two cents...

Happy New Year! I hope your holiday season was and is everything you hoped. I am enjoying this year more than I expected. The ending of one year and the beginning of the next is a time that causes me to reflect and assess the past while looking forward to the future.

This past year with Newcomers has been one of challenges and successes. I believe that each of us in NCGH should be pleased -- Our annual Holiday Dinner Party, All That Glitters was a great success -- many members came out and had a wonderful time. We were able to raise $610 for the American Red Cross and their activities here in the Huntsville area. Our holiday luncheon Friendship makes the Holidays Sweeter was held at another new venue - Ruth's Chris. I have to say that the meal was fabulous, our musical entertainment Celtic Blessings was divine and the friendships shared heartwarming. Manna House was pleased with our donation of two large boxes of food as well as cash. THANK YOU! In addition, our members have been busy with the CSNA Gift Wrap station helping to raise funds to continue their work within the Huntsville area. Others came together to help create hundreds of Mamma Bags that were distributed to women before the holiday. And still other members have been volunteering at the Botanical Garden Galaxy of Lights. Members volunteer with local theater, symphony, art museum, and other venues all which improve and enrich our community. You have my heartfelt gratitude. So in looking back, I have contentment with 2017 and all the areas that NCGH has touched Huntsville.

Looking forward to 2018. I am not anxious to add activities to my schedule. I think that the natural tendency toward resolutions fall too close to - self improvements only -- lose weight, eat better, exercise more, and so forth. No, instead I would like to be more present - be more fully involved in my actions, and to invest more of myself into building relationships with the people in my life, especially with the ladies of NCGH.

So starting today, I want to not rush through visits, but actually be fully present rather than worrying or planning for the next meeting, appointment or activity. I want to build more friend time; time to visit, time to listen and just be. I am looking to the next year and developing deeper friendships with each of you.

As Oprah Winfrey has said "Cheers to a new year and another chance to get it right."

In friendship,

Crystal
