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

THAT Chair
You know THAT chair? It's the one you like to read in, maybe watch TV. It has a table next to it so you have a place to put your tea, or glass of wine. It is so comfy and cozy. Maybe there is a throw there for the chilly winter evenings or when the A/C has been cranked up too high. Do you feel that?-all curled up with a good book, sipping some tea, so content, so-home?

That's how Newcomers Club makes me feel. (I'll save that line for my shrink) No, really. All the women in the club wrap me up in their warmth and make me feel so comfortable and at ease. I am even at ease making fun of myself. When I am at a Newcomers event, I am at home. How wonderful! If you are not "there" yet, just give us a chance, make a little effort (you need to brew the tea) and you will be there soon.

Now and again, someone may move the chair, change it up and rock our world. But sometimes, we just might see that it's better that way and come 'round to their way of thinking. It is still the same chair after all. All of our activities, though fun in their own right, support the mission of our club: to welcome the newcomer, encourage friendship and make them feel, well, at home in THAT chair.

Come with us this month as we celebrate our country's birth at our July 5th coffee, or as we tour Cathedral Caverns on the 19th taking in the wonders of nature. How pleasant to have cool places to go with friends on hot summer's days. Of course both events have luncheons as added bonuses, should you like to partake. Nothing says "home" like a meal with our pals, old and new. MaryAnn Hill and Felecia McInnish are both newer members who have embraced the idea that to participate and serve is to feel at home even sooner. Support their efforts and you will feel it too.

Join us! There's plenty of room in THAT chair!

In friendship,

Cathy Brickey,
