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.

Lynn's Letter

     This will be the last of many things for me as President. My last letter to all of you. The last time I will be able to publicly thank my Board for the help and support you have given me this year. Grace, Anne, Paula, Aimee, Alyson, and Susan, without your ideas, help and support my job would have been impossible.
     To my Standing Committee chairs, Connie, Karen, Eugenie, Angie, Sally, Sandy, Jodie and Cathy, I want to let you know that the time and effort that you have put into your jobs have certainly been instrumental in the success of NCGH this year. I also want to thank all the activity leaders that make our monthly activities so much fun.
     Thank you to the two special committees that arranged and organized the December Luncheon and the Spring Fashion Show. Both these events are highly anticipated and deserve special mention. Thanks to the Past Presidents, Mary and their committees for their efforts in making these events so enjoyable and successful.
     Thanks also to Ann Marie and her committee for the scarecrow at the Botanical Gardens. This is great advertisement for us as a club.
     A special thanks to Sheelagh. You have been my trusted advisor, my rock, my sounding board and my good friend throughout this year. I couldn't have done my job without you.
     It is possible that your name isn't mentioned here and that you contributed in some manner. I didn't forget, I just don't have room to name every person that worked hard to make this year so fantastic.
     Most of all I want to thank the membership for supporting me and all the activities. The attendance at our coffees has been phenomenal. The monthly Interest Groups have been appreciated and well attended and the Luncheons and Socials were enjoyed by many.
     Each one of us can contribute something to Newcomers. Maybe you will become a special friend to someone that you meet at a coffee or an activity. Perhaps you possess a special talent that you could teach at an Arts and Creations activity. Maybe you have an idea that will enhance our club. If you take part in an activity or event that is offered, you are contributing. If you feel that Newcomers has helped you in some way, please give back in any way you can. It is important that we keep our club vibrant and interesting, so as to attract new people and keep current members engaged.
     Remember, it is up to all of us as members of Newcomers, to act as ambassadors and to bring new members into the fold. So far, all of you have been doing a wonderful job. Keep up the good work!!! Our membership is at an all-time high!!!!
     I am passing the gavel to Eugenie Candon and her Board at the end of this month. I wish them every success in the coming year. I am certain they will do an excellent job of continuing the wonderful tradition of welcoming newcomers to our area as well as holding the interest of the long-timers who remain members.
     I hope to see all of you at the activities that are being planned. I may be moving on from my current position, but I intend to stay active and willing to help in any way I can.

In friendship,

Lynn Scherer
