The Newcomers Club of Central Bucks is seeking members. Newcomers is a non-profit social, recreational, and community organization established to welcome new residents to the Central Bucks area.
For over 30 years the Newcomers Club has been engaged with helping residents new to the area. The club’s mission is to provide information, social activities, and support for members allowing them to establish friendships while learning about the community.
Newcomers offers monthly activities that cover a variety of interests, including book club, ladies night out, men’s events, couples happy hour and children’s playgroups.
One goal of the group is to help members learn about the richness of the Central Bucks area. As such, events are held at a variety of local restaurants, parks, festivals and cultural organizations as well as in members’ homes.
“We like to introduce our members to the wide variety of options for dining and entertainment in the many towns and villages of Central Bucks,” said Christine Junker, Newcomers President.
To someone who has recently relocated, Newcomers members are a great source for referrals for everything from new homeowners seeking contractors, to information on preschools, shopping and other local amenities. Another benefit offered to club members is an immediate sense of community by providing home-cooked meals for members recovering from a surgery, parents welcoming a new child, or when grieving a death in the family.
“Many of our members relocating to the area are far from family who usually provide a support system. They are very appreciative of the instant friendships the club provides!” Christine said.
The Newcomers Club also has a community involvement component. Some activities the club has sponsored to help local communities include a winter coat drive, highway cleanup and fundraisers for local charities.
Persons eligible for membership in the Newcomers Club are new residents residing in Central Bucks County. Annual dues are $35 per household.
