COVID Update:  October 8, 2021
Joining an Interest Group is a wonderful way to get to know people in NOTL.
Unfortunately, our in-person interest groups are extremely limited this Fall/Winter due to members comfort levels with gatherings during our difficult times
However, there is still space in our weekly walking group as well as a fun lunch out group! Once you become a club member you will have access to a list of groups and their conveners through the website MEMBERS section. Then you are able to find out more about the group by contacting the convener. Please note: You can join more than one group.
Are you interested in joining an interest group but none is offered?
We encourage the creation of new groups to accommodate interested members; however, all groups must have a volunteer group convener in order to get established. Outdoor or online groups are popular at this time so think about something you enjoy outdoors such as: hiking or photography? How about recipe swap ZOOM calls for any “foodies”? We would love to have new group conveners step forward so that new interest groups can open up!
Please contact the Director of interest groups if you have an idea to share, we would be happy to hear from you and answer any questions that you may have.  Contact the Director of Interest Groups

No ScentsWe ask that all members be 'Scent Free' and refrain from wearing scented products when attending NOTL Newcomers Events.  People with a sensitivity to scents can experience severe reactions to these products. Please help everyone enjoy a safe experience at NOTL Newcomers by adhering to this request.
Please note this a bylaw in NOTL - all town facilities are to be Scent Free.
