Activity - Newcomer


May 2024 Wine Social

Thanks to hosts Andy and Kris Britton for opening their beautiful home for our final 2023-24 Wine Social.

When:  Thursday May 23rd 6-8pm
wine socials will return in September.
How Wine socials work:
Remember to bring wine and a dish to share (appetizer or dessert) with your fellow Newcomer members.  Please recognize the hosts can only hold a limited number of guests, so be sure to RSVP to nbncwinesocial@yahoo.com to reserve your 
****Once the RSVP cap is met, we will maintain a Wait List. This event is getting larger and larger each month so to meet the demand, we are prepared to have a 2nd event to accommodate the interest in this activity, but without another host home, we will not be able to achieve this. Please consider being a host home.

Congratulations to this season's Wine Social  activity leaders,  Janine Peek and Allyson Hankley for doing such an incredible job.

Hosting is easy - just provide an indoor/outdoor space and the host determines the number of guests allowed, the date, and the timeframe.  Guests bring their own beverage of choice (usually wine), along with an appetizer/dessert to share with the group, and the club provides the glassware.  This venue offers the members an excellent opportunity to mingle and socialize while enjoying wine and dining on some tasty treats.

Please respond to us and let us know what month you would prefer (along with a backup month).  We will then connect directly with you to narrow in on the finer logistics:  specific date, time, etc.  The sooner we hear back, the quicker we can start to line up our calendar of events.

To Attend:  Interested members will be emailed details of a scheduled activity a week or two in advance.    Follow the directions in the email for RSVP requirements. If your plans change after indicating you will attend, please email the activity leader and/or the host to inform them you will not attend. To be added to the group's email list, sign up at a general meeting or email the group leader.

The Wine Social is open to all members of the Newcomers Club of New Bern.
