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

The Dog Days of Summer, some of the hottest, most sultry days in the Northern Hemisphere are upon us. One of our newest members mentioned at the July Coffee that her family moved here to avoid the heat and humidity. Guess what, the joke is on her, at least this year.

With the coming of August we will be resuming most of our regularly scheduled interest groups and activities, so be prepared to gear up again for a full season of fun NCGH activities.

Paula Mittell has begun to plan our first Social of the year which will be a cocktail party to take place in October. It should be cooler by that time, our summer trips and house guests should be good memories by then. The party will give us something to look forward to before we start a whirlwind of holiday planning.

Mary Conrad has found a beautiful, historic venue for our Spring Fashion Show and she has some innovative ideas for the presentation of the fashions. I know that talking about spring seems to be premature, but it will be here before you know it.

Aimee Robinson has a Luncheon/General Meeting scheduled at Valley Hill Country Club on August 12th. You have your choice of two very special menu items to choose from for lunch. The guest speaker will be Dorothy Thomas of the Huntsville Herb Society presenting her topic: From Your Garden to Your Table.

A question has been raised as to whether or not you may attend the General Meeting without paying for lunch. Our General Meetings are held prior to the luncheon and program so that members that want to take part in the business portion of the meeting are able to participate, if they wish to do so, without the expense of the luncheon. The luncheon and program will begin immediately after the completion of the business meeting.

Thank you to those of you that have taken advantage of the suggestion box at the Coffee. Your suggestions are welcome and will be discussed at the next scheduled Board meeting. Answers will be addressed either by email, in person, (if you signed your name) or at the next scheduled General Meeting.

Remember to mention NCGH to a new neighbor, or any newly transplanted gal that you might have a conversation with during your travels. This method seems to be the best way to grow our group.

I look forward to the August Coffee and to seeing everyone there.
