Newcomers' Club of Santa Rosa 

​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.

After her successful romp in Hollywood, Marilyn Kentz – the feisty brunette of the NBC 90’s comedy duo The Mommies and the ABC talker Caryl and Marilyn, Real Friends – moved to Berkeley and turned her skills toward writing.

Her books always have a theme for women - "You’re not alone". Once her books, Not Your Mother’s Mid-life and Fearless Women: Midlife Portraits, were released, she realized she had hit a nerve with boomers and has become a leader in re-inventing the way women experience aging.

During the last four years, she performed a second stage show called Will I Ever Wear a Bikini Again? tackling the topic of the weird, bewildering and exciting aging process. Like Marilyn, that show is now retired.

Marilyn’s presentation is directed at that same boomer audience. It’s about what most of us go through on the other side of the hill. It’s for anyone who bends way over to pick something off the floor and cannot get upright without making some sort of noise. It’s for women whose bikini days are long gone. It’s for those who need reminding that aging is simply what we make of it. You will be definitely entertained today – not to be missed! Guests always welcome.
