Newcomers’ Club is not just for newcomers! It is for all Sonoma County residents wanting to enhance their lives with new friends and interests. We provide the opportunity to meet other like-minded women to socialize, have fun, and explore numerous activities.
Our diverse program of Special Interest Groups encourages members to learn about Santa Rosa and Sonoma County, its culture and lifestyle, and to develop new friendships. Some of the many things we enjoy include bridge, mahjong, book clubs, movies, dining out, visiting wineries, hiking, bocce ball, and more!
Join us at our monthly luncheon (2nd Tuesday of the month) to check us out and enjoy our current program. Reservation information & menu selections are available on the Luncheon Meetings page.
