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.

One & Done - Phoenix Art Museum - Wednesday, July 20 - Register starting June 1
Well, despite our respite from the historical May average of 90 degree temperatures, we are on our way to another Valley summer. Many of our “snowbird” members are packing up and heading north for the season. For those of us who remain, one plus is easier access to the more popular Club activities. Remember that registration for two months of activities opens at 10:00 am on the first of every month
Newcomers leadership, both Board and Committee Members, are hard at work brainstorming and planning how to make our Club more member and community friendly and fun. I want to thank those of you who responded to my call for several positions, and I encourage others of you to contact us as well. We can always use your help, whether for a temporary project or a leadership position.
As a former historian, I am always captivated by interesting and sometimes obscure ideas and facts. May is a month when we celebrate some important holidays, such as Cinco de Mayo, Mothers’ Day, and Memorial Day. But do you know about May Day, a pre-Christian fertility ritual celebrated on May 1 in many folk traditions in Europe and North America? How about National Lost Sock Memorial Day (May 9), or Clean Up Your Room Day (May 10)?
And in what has become a Newcomers tradition, our May meeting/luncheon, held this year on Thursday May 26, takes place at du Jour Restaurant, the fine dining and student laboratory for the Arizona Culinary Institute. As in past years, the chef and students will design a special luncheon menu for us featuring local, seasonal items. Reservations are required and made through the Club’s website.
I hope to see you there, or at another Newcomers activity soon.
