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...

This past month has been full, but good. We had our first General Meeting of this term at Pizzelle's, which was a wonderful change of pace for us. We had two bylaw changes presented at this meeting that you will find in this newsletter. Please read over them carefully and make your vote count in November.

We are now into September, and our activities continue to fill the calendar. Our Get Acquainted Coffee will be on Tuesday September the fifth. I hope to see you there, as we will be celebrating 'Back to School'. We have a busy month planned -- a Maple Hill Cemetery Tour (different than the last one), Movie Mania, Bunco, Bridge, and many other activities. Review the Calendar and find something you would like to do. I will be trying out the Bowling Buddies group this September. Can you join us? Kudos to our Hospitality Team, they are doing a bang up job with their themes.

My heart is full of joy, gratitude and pride at our club. I received a letter from CSNA thanking our members for their help in stuffing 20,000 envelopes for their last campaign drive -- saving them the cost of hiring that out. Thank you Ladies! I am honored to be counted one of you.

I have been talking about the characteristics of friendship this term and this month will be no different. I would like to address Kindness. My mother attempted to teach this to me with the Golden Rule "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." She tried to instill the idea that we should behave toward others with gentleness, graciousness, generosity and consideration just like we would want them to act toward us. These actions of gentleness and consideration are done not for the reward or a thank you but simply because it is good/right to do so. Aesop does say "No act of Kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted." I will strive this month to consciously choose kindness.

In Friendship,

Join us!
