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.
This month’s program will be a lecture by Julia Geist, a docent from the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, who will do a slide presentation of Oscar de la Renta: The Retrospective. This world premier retrospective of Oscar de la Renta’s work celebrates the life and career of one of fashion’s most influential designers.
Julia will trace de la Renta’s upbringing in the Dominican Republic; the rise of his career in Spain, his formative years spent in the world’s most iconic fashion houses, and his eventual role as a designer for many of the most influential and celebrated personalities of the 20th century.
De la Renta designed dresses for First Ladies Jacqueline Kennedy, Nancy Reagan, Laura Bush and Hillary Clinton, and celebs Sara Jessica Parker (see photo) and Taylor Swift, to name a few. Guests always welcome.
