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.

President's Letter

April is here - which means it's time to wish you a Happy Easter! April in North Alabama is also the time of year where you can see all four seasons in one, twenty-four hour period. Don't believe me? Just wait – mornings start off feeling like spring, by the afternoon you'll swear it's summer, only to convince yourself its fall by evening and then roll back into winter overnight. It's no wonder we have no idea what to wear this time of year!

Speaking of what to wear…It's time for our Spring Fashion Show! Join us at Campus 805 for "Oh, the Places We'll Go" and a delicious lunch catered by Bubba's Silver Spoon. Our friend Kim returns to us from Christopher and Banks again this year, with all the latest fashion trends that will fit right into our on-the-go lifestyles. This highly anticipated event is a club favorite, so spread the word and invite your guests to be with you on this fun day. Marcy, Diane and their committee have been hard at work, and I promise you won't be disappointed! Tickets are still available, but you'll want to make your reservations quick before time runs out! As a friendly reminder, our General Meetings are open to all Newcomer members. If you choose to attend the General Meeting portion only, we ask for your RSVP so we can have additional seating available to accommodate you; once the General Meeting has concluded, those members without a luncheon ticket will be dismissed. Don't forget, we will be voting on the slate of Executive Officers, set forth by the Nominating Committee at this General Meeting Luncheon on Tuesday, April 9th.

We're off on another Newcomer adventure…and you don't even have to leave the Rocket City! Join us later this month for a special outing to "The Wild" – A Chinese Lantern Festival at the Huntsville Botanical Garden. The festival boasts more than 1,000 illuminated lantern displays of wildlife from around the world, and is HBG's biggest exhibit to date! We'll start the evening with delicious Chinese cuisine before heading off to explore the magic and beauty of art and culture from the Far East. (Look for more details on page 11 of this newsletter) Special thanks to Delee Steen for coordinating this special event.

My sincerest appreciation to all the NCGH Leprechauns who turned out and participated at the 42nd Annual Ellen McAnelly Memorial St. Patrick's Day Parade! We enjoyed shenanigans and sunshine as we marched through the streets of Huntsville all decked out in every shade of green imaginable. Special thanks to Connie Walker for leading us, Rebecca Humpal for driving us and Maria Granica for organizing us. Their help in handling the details and the support from our members helped make the day a success! I think we can all agree - the Pot of Gold at the end of the rainbow is the many friendships you find at Newcomers!

As Alyson and her committee so lovingly reminded us to, "Bloom Where We're Planted" at last month's luncheon, let us take those words to heart. If you are asked to serve in a position for next year's board of directors or as a committee chair - don't sweat the details, just say "YES!" Jumping in to serve your fellow club members is a move you won't regret, and I promise the benefits outweigh the work. I can tell you with confidence; you will find yourself surrounded by a community of amazing women ready to lend their support.

As the flowers burst forth this spring, let us be reminded to rejoice and be thankful for the many gifts of friendship; and May your Newcomers Basket Always be filled with Hope, Joy, Warmth and Love!


Your President,

Nicki
