Welcome to Charlottesville!
Have you recently moved to the Charlottesville area? Are you at a new stage in life and interested in meeting new people with common interests? Or are you a resident of the area who would enjoy the activities of an established social club?
The Charlottesville Newcomers Club is an active, fun, friendly organization of men and women who want to make your transition to the area easy, and your life in Charlottesville enjoyable. The Club welcomes all residents of Charlottesville and of nearby counties such as Albemarle, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa and Nelson.
Our Club has over 400 members and offers a wide range of activities and events. Members enjoy meeting new people, making friends, joining in social and recreational activities, learning more about the area, and getting involved in the community. There is something for everyone in the Charlottesville Newcomers Club.
March Luncheon at Boars Head Inn
Note -- Rescheduled to Tuesday, April 4!
Our March luncheon and general membership meeting will be held at the historic 573-acre Boar's Head Property located just two miles from downtown Charlottesville and the University of Virginia. We have secured “The Old Ballroom” in the main building so we can accommodate all our members who want to come out and enjoy one of Charlottesville's finest facilities. Social time begins at 11:30 a.m., and lunch will be served at 12:00 noon.
The speaker for the afternoon is Rick Britton, a Virginia-based historian specializing in 18th and 19th century Virginia history, an award-winning historical journalist with over 200 published articles and essays and an OLLI instructor. In addition to being the author of several books, Rick illustrates maps and offers “Navigated Tours” of the state's historic sites, battlefields, cemeteries, and Presidential estates.
Please note that this event was rescheduled from its original March 14 date because of weather.
Welcome to Meetup -- for Newcomers Members
We have established a Charlottesville Newcomers Meetup Group. It’s totally optional, and does not replace the activities we plan monthly. But if you want to see what it would be like to join in different kinds of activities with other Newcomers, this is for you.
First of all, our Meetup group is only open to members of Charlottesville Newcomers Club, so you don’t have to worry that you’ll be running into strangers. These are the same folks you see at luncheons and socials and bridge games and book groups. Your name isn’t displayed to anyone outside of Newcomers.
And third, our Meetup group is for you. Don’t see any activities on our page that interest you? Let us know what you want to do. Just click on the list of organizers on the left side of the page and send a message. We can help you set up an event.
So think about it – what would you like to do next week?
Spring seems determined to arrive early, and we're ready to take advantage of nice weather. Check out our March Calendar, which is full of opportunities to socialize. Details of all activities are in our Newsletter, which was sent to all members January 14. If you aren't a member, but want to join, here's what you need to know.
