 Are you new to the area and want to make new friends?

Moving to a new area means leaving old friends and connections behind. The Newcomers Club is here to help you find new friends and connect you to your new community.

In the monthly Meet & Greet, you'll get to meet new and old members of the Club and learn about our wide range of regular and special activities. There's no cost to attend and no need to register - although we'd like to know if you're planning to join us, so that we can welcome you properly. If you'd like to tell us that you're planning to be there, we'd invite you to email our membership chair at

If you are new to the area (Chapel Hill, Durham, Pittsboro, Carrboro, Hillsborough) in the last three years, give us a look. Members have five full years of participation in the club, an ample amount of time to build a new network of friends to last a lifetime. The Newcomers Club is a welcoming group to all.

Newcomers Club is an organization that facilitates a variety of social activities and interest groups that will allow you to find people who share your enthusiasms, whether hiking or wine tasting, dinner groups or book clubs, discussions or games. There is something here for everyone.

And----as shown below, you can try out our activities via a "Test Drive".
