The Newcomers Club offers many activities designed not only to provide you with new friends and fun, but also opportunities to learn, lead and laugh! Activity Groups can change depending on the interests of new members. Our current groups are listed here. Click on those you are interested in to learn about it.

How do you sign up? Most activity groups maintain a list of their active participants and communicate with them via email for upcoming events. You can email the activity leader to be added to the list for any group you're interested in or give them your contact info at the monthly general meetings. More detail regarding signups is given on each of the individual groups' web pages.
