Luncheons and Other Gatherings Each year, the Newcomers Club holds eight club-wide gatherings that provide meet-and-greet opportunities, acquaint members and prospective members with Newcomers Club activities and community outreach efforts, and highlight area attractions.
These festive gatherings take place in attractive local venues and customarily take the form of luncheons or other hospitality events.
The monthly selections are posted in the Newcomers' Newsletter. The May meeting is a lunch where volunteers sign up to host meetings and lead book discussions.
Discussions are very lively and centered on the book chosen for that month.
Dinners normally occur on the second and/or third Saturdays of the month.
The host provides the entrée and a side and the guests bring the appetizer, salad and dessert.
The opportunities are in many areas and at different times depending on the volunteer activity.
