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...

Friendship - one of the main purposes of Newcomers Club of Greater Huntsville. Friendships improve your health according to the Mayo Clinic. Benjamin Franklin said is was the best possession. So how do I develop friendships as an adult in a new town? I did the thing I always do when I need ideas--a Google search! That search led me to multiple lists of the qualities of a friend or found in friendships.

One of the characteristics that I found on many lists was the quality of Respect or Respectfulness. I can see how this is important in that being respectful of others means allowing them to be the women they are. It means I don't try to change them. It also means that I honor my commitments to others. This month I want to strive to be more respectful of our members and strengthen my friendships.

I am looking forward to our activities this month -- The hospitality team will be recognizing Summer Fun at the coffee on August first.

I know that Nicki and her team are hard at work prepping for our first luncheon that will be at Lowe Mill. This will be a general meeting where the proposed budget will be presented. Make plans to attend!

I heard through the grapevine that Tina is planning an unique social for us to be held in October. Keep your calendar clear for this fun and exciting night!

August means that all our interest groups are back on the schedule -- take a look at all our activities. I am sure you will find something fun to do. I hope to see you at one or more!

As a reminder to all our crafty ladies, The Craffle (a merging of Craft and Raffle) will be in November. You might want to start on your projects now. It will be here before we know it.

Let me borrow some words from Andrew Gold:

Thank you for being a friend.
Travel down the road and back again.
Your heart is true, you're a pal and a confidant.

In Friendship,

Join us!
