Tallahassee Women's Newcomers Club (TWNC) bylaws state: The primary purpose of "the Club" is to welcome members and to help them integrate into the community by providing social activities and settings in which members can form new friendships and pursue their interests."
If you are a minimalist and this is all you need to know to move forward, use "Contact Us" to get directly in touch with a TWNC member for additional details, including a sample newsletter and how to get started. If you need a little more information, scroll down, and then go to "Contact Us."
But, please always know that we welcome ladies new to our both idyllic and vibrant community and those who may have been here a few years or a great many more!
The time is now! Get out and get social by connecting with the women of the Tallahassee Women's Newcomers Club (TWNC)!
You may have lived here 40 years or 40 minutes – doesn't matter! What matters is your finding this great resource which includes friendly, intelligent, mature women who love being social within the context of this inexpensive but well-organized club whose existence is hovering around 50 years and currently has about 225 members. That bespeaks success!
Take a look at what TWNC has to offer and allow yourself to be smitten—take wings and fly!
Each month, we enjoy a luncheon at an across-the-board cost of $15. Eight of those will be at Fellowship Presbyterian Church with box lunches and an occasional pot luck. The other four will be catered at St. Paul's United Methodist Church.
We also host a coffee in one of the member's lovely homes with several women volunteering to be co-hostesses (i.e., each brings a covered dish suitable for a brunch).
There is also a happy hour where a members opens her home and each attendee brings an appetizer to share (and perhaps a guest or significant other) as well as a beverage if your choice is one that contains alcohol
It is yours to choose whether you attend any of these—you may become a “regular” or you may find your niche with one or more of the many breakout clubs—or create your own combo!
Book, bridge, bunco, hand and foot, mahjongg, and pinochle clubs, a few of which are also designated for “couples” and some of which are evening events. There is also “Game On!” which is so popular it rapidly expanded to twice a week and now is looking at forming an evening group. You don't have to limit yourself to one or the other – we have some bridge players that try to be in enough bridge groups to play almost (and some twice!) daily, others that are members of several breakout groups, keeping busy several partial days each week. We also offer the exciting news that a new gourmet cooking club is working to come together.
With our very own Music Makers! The women of this group steadfastly practice and then bring their beautiful song (along with witty and informative commentary) to their always appreciative audiences, whether “in house” or in visits to various community venues. So, if you love to sing and want to bring your special gift forward, please make yourself known!
FOOTBALL (no kidding!)
Indeed, we have a delightful wife/husband team who opens their door annually to all Newcomers (Note: Happy Hour rules apply) for the Super Bowl. Ladies who are timid and think they would be isolated at this event should rethink their thinking! It appears that couples and singles are almost equally divided and seemingly often divide into men and women to simply enjoy being social (well, yes, there are some die-hard football fans, too—TVs available and tuned in).
Yes, we do have the occasional field trip involving a day or less (think theater or a visit to one of our multiple art venues or museums or special places near and dear to the heart of Tallahasseeans); and, the very occasional, an overnight trip for a special event and which is made affordable to us when other, larger groups sign on and the managing travel agency lets it be known that it is also open to others.
So, now you have the nitty-gritty, but how do you get started? Click “CONTACT US” to email right now! Our ladies who volunteer to respond will send you a copy of the current Newcomer News, provided as a “pro forma” of what you can expect to receive monthly from the dedicated people who keep this tool most important to us in our quest to be active and social—and at the right place and the right time each month (the last page is a calendar summary) as we gracefully age. They will also include friendly words encouraging you to come to a luncheon and meet the crowd that'll get you started on your great Newcomers' adventure. It's easy-going, and it's fun! Just take a look at the “Photo Galleries,” and you'll surely see a future with TWNC!
Easy stuff. And lifelong friends in the waiting and for the making.
