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.
July and August 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.
One & Done - OCTOBERFEST! October 8, 2016
There are a few ways people become aware of our Club: finding our website after a search on the internet, learning about us via local media, and through word-of-mouth. One of this Board’s goals is to make each of those processes simpler and easier.
We talked about the website last month. Its interactive aspect makes joining and renewing membership quick and easy. With a few clicks of the keyboard, you can conveniently update your profile if your contact information has changed. As a member, you do not have to contact anyone: only login to the website, click on your name at the top-right corner, and then edit any information in the profile.
I hope you all have read the message on the website from Pat Merrill, our PR/Marketing Director. It’s under Community Outreach in Press and Publicity. She asks that we email her with contact information for any local community centers, newsletters, or community newspapers We know that we have a wonderful Club, and Pat is working hard to let other people know that too. Please help her.
Finally, we all know that word-of mouth is one of the very best advertisements. If you know a potential new member, please invite them to join you at one of the events created for them. Such events include Get Acquainted Coffees, Monthly Luncheons, Happy Hours – these events are held monthly; Singles - Meet & Greet, often several each month; and New Members Only (NMO) Meet Up.
I’d like to mention a couple of other events happening this month. As I write this, there are a few spaces still open for the July 16 Wine Tasting. One of the Club’s most popular activities, registration usually fills up quickly. With the snowbirds gone, more spaces are open for those of us who summer here. There are also some openings for a special One & Done docent-led tour of the 50 Years of Fashion exhibition at the Phoenix Art Museum on July 20. French food is on our minds at the end of the month with our Supper Club dinner at Voila French Bistro on the 26, and our Monthly BYOM Luncheon on the 28 at Le Sans Souci. Register for these events online. Hope to see you there.
