          Newcomers Cancelling Events Through June 30

Due to the higher risk to many Newcomers Members of contracting the Coronavirus, all Newcomers events have been cancelled through June 30th. We will resume our normal schedule of events as soon as it is safe to do so.

, some of our resourceful activity coordinators have started holding online events using Zoom.  Zoom is an easy way to go online to talk with each other, see each other and enjoy some time together while still "socially distancing."

So far, the online events (identifiable by the bright yellow background on the Newcomers calendar) include Afternoon Book Club, Mah Jongg, Sociable Singles, Men Having Happy Hour and Women Who Lunch.

Most of all: stay safe and healthy so that we can all toast our good fortune when things get running again.  In the meantime, please thank the coordinators who are learning Zoom and hosting events - it's their spirit that makes Newcomers the club that it is!
