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

Fall is in the air. In many regions of North America, the landscape silently explodes with vibrant colors of red, yellow, and orange. The leaves begin to drop off the trees, baseball season hits the homestretch, while football season is just warming up. Temperatures begin to drop, nights begin to get longer, and all the woodland critters are storing up for the long haul of winter.

Newcomers Club will be back into the swing of things beginning this month. Some of our activities have been on hiatus over the summer, so we are looking forward to resuming our regular schedule.

Take time to look over the newsletter to see what activities are taking place this month. We are trying to offer various activities that appeal to a variety of people. There may be something that you don't normally participate in that catches your eye. Try something new. You might like it.

The August Coffee was extremely successful. There were approximately 70 people in attendance, including 6 guests.

The Luncheon last month at Valley Hill Country Club was well attended and the speaker, Dorothy Thomas, of the Huntsville Herb Society, had some excellent information to pass on to everyone. The herb and flower centerpieces were simple but lovely and fit right into the theme of the day. Thank you to Aimee Robinson and her committee for all their hard work on this event.

The budget for the 2014-2015 year was presented for approval to the membership at this gathering and was accepted.

On September 9th, our Luncheon at the Ledges will feature Peggy Cole of the Better Business Bu-reau of Alabama. Her topic - Identity Theft and Scams. Join us at this lovely venue for a wonderful lunch, the gathering of friends, and this timely topic.

Paula Mittell and her committee are busy with plans for the first Social of the year on October 4th, a cocktail party in the making. Be sure to get your reservations in soon as the clubhouse is limited to the number of occupants it can accommodate.

Plans for the Spring Fashion Show are moving along. Mary Conrad has been diligently working to assure that everyone will enjoy the afternoon.

I am looking forward to cooler days, less humidity, and to seeing Newcomer friends that have been absent over the summer.

Enjoy September.

In friendship,

Lynn Scherer
