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.

My two cents...

I cannot believe that it is already May -- time certainly flies when you are having fun. It seems to me that just yesterday I was standing on a stage waiting to hear 'Ayes' or 'Nays' and now I am looking at the Installation of the next board. Ladies, we are in for a treat next term as NIcki and her board will lead us well. There is both experience and enthusiasm in our new leadership.

I have had the privilege and pleasure of working with a group of wonderful women this term. Carol has done a phenomenal job stepping in and running our socials - both the Holiday Dinner Party and the Boots and Brews Bash. Y'all missed a treat if you were not able to attend that in April. Nicki has done another bang up job with the luncheons - more new venues, interesting speakers and great meals. Margarita, Barbara and Lindsey, I would have been lost without your dedication to your tasks - Membership, Treasurer and Secretary. You have each done a remarkable job in sometimes overlooked positions. Thank you. Our parliamentarian, Alyson, has been a blessing to me and to our club, We were able to move forward with technology while keeping true to Roberts Rules. My committee chairs, Catherine, Dona, Maria, Janet M., Vivian, and Janet H. have done much this year to make visitors welcome, keep membership informed, explore our surroundings, document our history, organize our interest groups and publish our newsletter - Thank you ladies. I am even more grateful to the ladies that step up for the special committees - Tinsel Trail (Karen), St. Paddy's Parade (Maria) and Fashion Show (Mary) - these events are becoming traditions for NCGH but would not happen without their leadership. And finally, I want to thank Cathy, for her unwavering support and advice throughout this term. I have relied on her experience and wisdom over the past year. Ladies, you are one of the reasons NCGH is so very special to me. Thank you.

Thank you to the members of the board, the committee chairs and members, and to all members, for your patience both with me and with each other. This is one of the most important aspects of friendship -- the ability to display patience. Patience when life gets hectic, when words are spoken without thought, when appointments get missed, or even when priorities do not align. Patience will allow for us to step back, take a deep breath and to smooth the ruffled feathers and shore up the relationships. Because we all come from so many places we do not always approach situations in the same manner. We may not interpret words and actions with the same meaning, but because we value friendship and want to develop relationships, patience is the answer. Well, patience and a good glass of …😊😊

I have been honored, challenged and pleased to have had your trust this past year. Thank you.

In friendship and laughter,

Crystal
