We Welcome Newcomers to the Chapel Hill, Durham, Pittsboro, Carrboro and Hillsborough Areas
Newcomers is resuming some Activities!
While the health and safety of our members is of paramount importance, Newcomers has begun to gradually add to our array of online events and to begin some outdoor, in-person activities.
The Golf Group resumed their monthly outing in July with great success. A socially-distanced visit to Stagville Plantation was held on July 8th. More in-person outdoor activities and events will be added when deemed safe.
For each outdoor activity, the Covid-19 policy of the selected location will be reviewed and then posted on the calendar so that members can decide whether they’re comfortable with the precautions taken by the venue.
Online activities on Zoom, which began in May, have been extremely popular with more being added to the calendar each month. These Zoom events are shown on the calendar in Yellow. The monthly Men’s Lunch group has become a Men Having Happy Hour Zoom event. Afternoon Book Club, Mah Jongg, Sociable Singles, Documentary Films, Women Who Lunch and Women Connecting Coffee are other Zoom events on the calendar.
We are looking at additional, interesting presentations on Zoom, from educational presentations to cooking classes and are eager to hear from members who have great ideas.
We know that it will take time, but your Board is dedicated to finding fun things to do as our world recuperates from Covid-19. So keep your eye on the calendar and be sure to sign up for Interest Groups so that you’ll always see emails announcing activities.
We’ll be back!
