ABOUT US
 
The NOTL Newcomers Club is for women who live in the Ontario municipality of Niagara-on-the-Lake, which includes Old Town, Glendale, Queenston, St. Davids and Virgil. 
Our goal is to welcome women who are new to the town, and to help them meet one another and discover everything our unique town has to offer residents.
 
Membership is open to women who have recently moved to Niagara-on-the-Lake (NOTL) and also to women residents who have undergone a major change in their lives, such as retirement, and want to become more involved in local life.
 
As a social club our goal is to help women who are new to the Niagara-on-the-Lake area, or who have had a significant life change to make new friends and participate in fun social activities.  Let's all hope that we will be able to have a busy year full of fun, social engagements and join a new interest group or participate in a new activity where we meet new people.
 
We welcome new members and encourage you to join.
We kindly request that Members help us provide a Scent Aware environment at club activities.
 
NOTL Newcomers is a member of the National Newcomers Association of Canada. You will find this site informative and their newsletters of interest to see Newcomer activities across Canada.
 
WHAT WE DO
 
Monthly Programs 
Usually held from September to June on the third Wednesday of the month from 1:30 to 3:30 pm. Some programs are a visit to a local place of interest, others take the form of meetings at the NOTL Community Centre, and twice a year we all enjoy a celebration lunch together at a local hotel or restaurant.  
Check the Events Page for dates and times.
 
Interest Groups
The heart of the Club and there are groups for active and not-so-active leisure pursuits, including biking, gardening, Mah-Jonng, dining in and dining out, book clubs, discussion groups...there are more than a dozen interest groups available, but if your interest isn't represented you're welcome to suggest a new group.
 
Coffee & Conversations
Monthly opportunity to meet informally at the NOTL Community Centre.  Every last Friday of the month, (except June, July and August), members meet to catch up on news, chat, sign up for programs and find out what's going on. The Simpson Room will host Newcomer members between 10 - 11:30 am. Please join us!

Special Programs
Taking place during the year and offer something a little out of the ordinary. It may be a visit to a special interest site in the area, or a chance to learn the basics of an art or craft.  These programs are hot tickets and are snapped up quickly.

Our Club has grown from the original small group to almost 200 members.  The Club regularly offers the opportunity to visit local attractions such as the Shaw Festival, local art galleries and historic buildings and venues. Additionally, there are opportunities to join dining clubs, outdoor activities, interest and hobby groups and meet local service clubs.
