TWNC The Year-Round Social Club for Mature Women You can't go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.
What kind of a year will you have if you believe the foregoing quotation? If you live in the greater Tallahassee area, you will enjoy a social club which is celebrating its birthday all year long. We have a Wizard of Imagination, our only three-time president, now “retired,” showing her chops, now in charge of Fundraisers and Special Events, coming up with twice monthly “special events” (with help from her Newcomers friends) part of the celebration of TWNC's 50thbirthday. That big party is almost here (Sept. 29) – if you are a member, tickets won't be available much longer, so as “they” say, “You better get with the program!”
The goal of Newcomers is to meet and make new friends while having fun. The membership fee is $25 annually. Some of the functions (cue the Luncheon, currently costing $15 each at the door and with a reservation) and a few of the activities may have small additional costs which are decided by each activity group itself. It is a social club. We do not close for a summer hiatus (but hope you will take that special trip if you have one planned!)
Monthly Functions include Board (first Wednesday), Coffee (second Wednesday), a Luncheon (fourth Wednesdays), and a Happy Hour, (third Fridays). All functions except Luncheons are held in the homes of Newcomers while the Board plans to vary venues for its luncheons. All functions and activities are open to members and guests (or contact email@example.com you're interested but don't have a member for help in, for example, coming to the next coffee.
There are Activities that include multiple clubs: Book, Bunco, Couples Bunco, Hand and Foot, couples Hand and Foot. Game Night Dinner, Game On!. Mah Jongg, Music Makers, Pinochle, Triple Play. Quatro Card Group, good weather Walking Group, and Lunch Buddies. If you would like to suggest a “new” activity, a favorite you love but waiting to be revealed, reach out to our Activities Manager, firstname.lastname@example.org. But here's a little additional kick start to get ahead of the game by adding your voice to the Music Makers. Contact their marvelous leader at email@example.com; you will perform before the Newcomers' luncheon twice a year and make occasional forays into the community to entertain people in senior care homes and others.
Our fundraiser, Bingo Bash & More, will likely be in early 2024. There have been three of these productions and the news of the fun that's to be had has increased annually.
There are plenty of things from which to pick and choose, but the biggest reward is always the friendships that form as you familiarize yourself with other Newcomers and become involved in functions and activities.
If you are new to the idea of becoming a Newcomer or if you “forgot” this unique jewel during the pandemic, please contact TWNC at firstname.lastname@example.org. We have a couple of TWNC topnotch first responders waiting to hear from you. Lastly, don't forget to bookmark www.tallahasseenewcomers.com. And remember it's ok to “start where you are to change your ending”!
