Vice President for Membership
My name is Larry Moody. I serve on the Board as Vice President for Membership. Falmouth Newcomers is a social club of over 500 Falmouth residents who enjoy meeting fellow residents who are new to the area or who have had a life-changing event. We provide an opportunity to learn about the community and participate in enriching activities, social events, and programs. We have over 60 activities including biking, wine tasting, book clubs, current events, kayaking, dining in and out, field trips, golf, and scrap booking to name just a few.
Membership is open to those who have lived in Falmouth for five years or less or have had a life- changing event such as change in marital status, death of spouse/partner, or retirement in the last five years. If you meet any of these requirements and would like to join us, please fill out the online application and release form.
We’d be happy to welcome you as a member of Falmouth Newcomers to meet new friends and adjust to your new surroundings while enjoying the many activities, socials, and programs. If you have any questions, please contact me at 617-874-0656.
Vice President for Socials
Welcome to the Socials page. Dena and I encourage all of you to attend social events as they are announced throughout the year.
Socials are open to all members (and sometimes Encore members and/or friends). Socials give you an opportunity to make new friends and build upon friendships you’ve already made here at Newcomers. You’ll learn more about all the wonderful leisure activities available right here in Falmouth or nearby. And obviously, socials offer a chance to enjoy an afternoon or evening of fun and entertainment.
We try to plan several different types of social events that will appeal to a wide variety of interests. This year, we are planning eleven socials! We’ll root for our hometeam, the Falmouth Commodores, enjoy our beautiful coastline with cruises around Falmouth, celebrate the seasons with various holiday events, participate in a Falmouth-style Cape Cod Clambake, and more. It should be fun!
You can find information about Socials on the website. In the Newsletter, we provide a “Save the Date” notice in advance of each event, and then the details, dates, cost, and reservation information are usually published two months before each social event. If you see something you like, sign up early – some of the venues have a maximum capacity!
We always welcome suggestions for new events – and while our bookings are done well in advance, we are always looking ahead to future social opportunities. We also welcome your help to serve on a planning committee, which we will advertise in the Newsletter when the need arises, so consider volunteering! And always feel free to contact me or Dena with your thoughts

Vice President for Activities
Our club offers you the opportunity to join a great variety of activities that meet regularly in addition to the fun Socials and enriching Programs available to you throughout the year. Some groups are small, some are large, and others have multiple groups of the same activity. If we do not have an activity that you are seeking, we encourage you to consider starting one by contacting us via email.
We are very appreciative of our personable, creative, knowledgeable, and dedicated leaders for organizing these great leisure activities for us. We have so many options in which to enjoy ourselves while meeting new people and spending time in gorgeous Falmouth, or elsewhere if the activity involves travel. Your new friends are out there waiting for you to join their groups so don’t wait any longer!

Well, it has finally arrived… the return of the Newcomers General meetings. Although there were no General meetings during the summer, many of you have been enjoying the ongoing Activities. Aren’t they just the best!! Now, at the September General Meeting you get a chance to attend the annual Activities Fair. This year’s fair will be September 14th at the First Congregational Church at 9:30am. Our VP for Activities Robin Hodor and AVP Tiffany Persechini have been hard at work preparing for this big event. Thank you so much for all the time you have dedicated to ensure the success of this popular event. Inside this Newsletter you will find a handy map and Activities checklist that you should bring with you to the fair.
And now for some specifics. When you arrive to the meeting, you will be escorted to the church sanctuary by our Greeters who you will recognize by the sunflowers they will be wearing. Once in the sanctuary, there will be a short General Meeting during which you will be introduced to all the Activity leaders. They will then leave to get set up while we finish the meeting.
After the meeting, you will head to the main hall and enjoy coffee and refreshments presented by our VP of Hospitality Hadassah Kneppel and AVP Cindy Branga. The Activity leaders will be positioned around the room ready to answer any questions you may have about their activity. Browse the room, talk to our very special leaders, and find a new activity or two to join. Activities are such an important part of your club. You will meet people that have similar interests and, in the process, really get to know each other.
Attending Social events and General meetings will give you more opportunities to see these new “friends”. This is what Newcomers Club is all about …. making friends in your new area.
Can’t wait to meet you at the Fair!!
