Ladies, have you recently moved to the Slidell Area? If so, you're invited to join the Slidell Newcomers' Club, a non-profit organization that was established in 1962 to enable newcomers to the area to make social contacts, acquaint them with activities of the Slidell area, and initiate social activities. Membership is open to residents who have moved here within the last two years. Although membership is comprised of women only, husbands are included in many of the social activities.
Newcomers has a wide range of Interest Groups to encourage members to make friends and become involved in the community. There is something for everyone!
Do you like games? We have Bowling, Bridge, several Bunko groups including a couples Bunko night, Euchre, Pokeno, and a Texas Hold 'Em to name a few.
Perhaps you like Shopping, Day Tripping or going out to dine. You can do that in the pleasant company of our members. What better way to become acquainted with the area as they visit different malls, sights of interest, and restaurants!
How about Crafts, Scrapbooking, or a Book club? To be able to socialize while learning something new, or perhaps offering something new to us, is an excellent way to make friends. We have groups that do all these things and more.
Like to party? Every year we hold our annual Mardi Gras Ball with the court selected from our membership. There are many members needed to help with the planning and decorations for this fun filled event. The Ball is one of the highlights of the Slidell Mardi Gras season.
We have an active and creative Social Chairman who organizes several functions during the year to be enjoyed by both you and your spouse, including our annual Crawfish Boil.
All these activities are a great opportunity to get together with others who have the same interest as yourself. Except for the Garden Club, there are no extra dues for these gatherings of kindred souls. The only requirement is a willingness to met new people and take part in fun filled activities.
As a non-profit organization, Newcomers supports many community services and charities. This is done through various fund raising activities such as raffles during the year and our annual Sell-A-Bration Arts and Crafts show.
Our members come from all over the world and have settled here in the Slidell area, some for a short time and some have found their "forever home". The Slidell Newcomers' Club has helped ease the transition from another state or country. Members have felt kinship by sharing a willingness to make friends and become involved with their new hometown.
Newcomers' holds a General Meeting/Luncheon the second Wednesday of every month at 10:45 AM at Pinewood Country Club. We promise an informative meeting with a guest speaker most months, a nice lunch and lots of good company and new friends.
We do require reservations and ask that you call our Reservations Chairman Janet (985-649-2647) the Friday before the luncheon to make or cancel a reservation.
Membership to the Club is $35 annually. Membership entitles you to attend luncheons, Interest Groups, and Club functions. A newsletter is published monthly to keep you of current activities and general membership news. Call our Membership Chair Nelda (985-641-5467) to see about joining us.
