Happy New Year, Newcomers!

“Tomorrow, is the first blank page of a 365-page book. Write a good one.”

As I draft this message, 2022 is almost over. We, as Newcomers, have experienced so much this calendar year. We’ve said goodbye to some special people; we’ve added many Newcomer friends; we’ve supported many non- profits in our community and become aware of others who could use our help; we’ve seen our luncheons and other activities continue to come to life after the COVID shutdown; we’ve given of our time, talents, money, and toys as a group
