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

In my life, my vocations and avocations outside of business have included: a flower child in high school and college, a horticulture student, a landscape designer and contractor, an Alabama Master Gardener, an Illinois Master Gardener and an Alabama Master Gardener again. Here's the thing-I adore flowers. I can't get enough of flowers (bug in husband's ear right here). So it's no surprise that I subscribe to the idea of "Bloom where you are planted".

Whether you chose to come to North Alabama or it was chosen for you, here you are. Isn't it nice that there is a group of women ready to welcome you with open arms and open hearts? There are so many different interests and activities, that, surely no one is left out! Just the longevity of some members (both in membership and in vitality) proves that the Newcomers Club can invigorate one's life and help us to blossom beautifully.

Just this month there are fresh things to do: A visit to the Marshall Space Flight Center is not to be missed! I've done it before and hope to do it again. It really brings home the importance that the Huntsville area had, and still has, for NASA and the space programs. I got to see astronauts doing experiments on the ISS, live. And how about that Car Rally that Crystal has planned for us at months end? What a new and fun thing to do. Our coffee will celebrate the National Parks. I don't think we've ever done something like that before. And a service dog at our first luncheon - These ladies are awesome!!

So, (to bring the metaphor home) we plant the seed but it is up to you, our members, to water! Nurture yourself by not only taking part in activities but also by being of service in their planning and implementation. Volunteer to be greeters, or to help with registration (new members especially) and see how many new people you get to meet. Sign up for a card game that you've never played before. Those who teach you may become your best friends!

Yes, this might be a new, strange place to you and you might be a bit shy, but with a little effort you can harvest a lot of joy. Bloom where you're planted and imagine the fine bouquet we can be!!
