Make Us Part of Your New Life!
In existence since 1968, the Club promotes friendship through a variety of social activities including daytime and evening events and interest groups - for both women and men.
Newcomers Club of Scottsdale welcomes anyone from Scottsdale and the Phoenix area who wants to meet new people! If you are interested in learning more about our Club, come and bring your partner or a friend to our next Luncheon, Get Acquainted Coffee, Singles - Meet and Greet, NMO Meet Up, or Happy Hour. Non-members may attend any of these "guest activities" twice before joining. About Us
We, as a club, have an energetic and involved group of members. In addition to our social aspect, we also value volunteering our time and effort for the many charitable organizations that aid our neighbors in need. Learn more at Community Outreach.
June and July activities are open for registration.
If an activity has reached the limit set for the number of registrants you can still go through the registration process to be added to the waiting list. If there is a vacancy, the Activity Chair will contact you.
If you need to cancel your registration for an activity, please contact the host and/or Activity Chair. There is no way to cancel a registration online.

President's MessageAs your President, I promise to keep you informed about actions the Board is taking. This month I particularly want to talk about our website, the main contact members have with the organization. Our goal is to make the website up-to-date in its information, friendly, and easy to use. Glitches that happened in early May are being cleaned up and will not happen again. And shortly, the reservation process will be easier to understand and use.
Please check it out on a regular basis. Soon you will start to see more photographs. Our Club Photographer is embarking on a year long effort to take photos of every activity. These will eventually accompany the description of each activity.
In the same Activity section, we are updating the names of Chairs as new people replace previous chairs.
Also look in this same section under Activity Interest for messages from specific Chairs. Currently the Chair of the Singles group has posted a request.
Another appeal comes from the Club’s PR/Marketing Director and is found in the section Press & Publicity under Community Outreach.
Finally, under Club Information, members can now find previous Presidents’ year end messages, formerly available only to the Board. These reports are interesting to read as they document the Club’s history.
One other change in Club procedures I’d like you to know about is the decision to contribute $200 to each designated monthly charity, above what is raised at luncheons. This way a portion of all members’ dues is going to support local charities, and we are better fulfilling our mission.
Lastly, a note that June is the beginning of our four month long summer luncheon program. We meet on the fourth Thursday in a local restaurant, and everyone orders and individually pays for whatever they choose from the menu. Tommy Bahamas is the setting for June. Register on line.
I hope to see you there, or at another Newcomers activity soon.
Ardis Willwerth, President
