Get Acquainted Coffee
We normally meet the first Tuesday of each month at 10:00 a.m. at the Huntsville-Madison County Public Library, 915 Monroe Street, Huntsville AL.

You do not have to be a member to attend the Get Acquainted Coffee. In fact non-members are encouraged to attend since it will be the first step of your journey into making new friends while embarking on your new life in a new area. If you are a woman new to the Huntsville area within three years it is important to attend this informal get-together where you will be offered coffee, goodies, conversation and, most importantly, information of what you might expect as a member of the Club. To attend the coffee, you can just show up . . . it doesn't get any easier than that!

Following coffee there is an optional luncheon held at a nearby restaurant where you will have the opportunity to get to know our members in a more intimate setting.

Once you have become a member, more information will be available about all the activities listed below and the door will be wide open to attend any or all of the events. Unless otherwise noted, activities meet in a member's home.
