Creating Opportunities for Community and Friendship
Vice President for Membership
Hi, My name is Laura Winslow. I am the VP for Membership of the Falmouth Newcomers Club. We are a social club of over 450 Falmouth residents who enjoy meeting our fellow Falmouth neighbors, learning about our community and having fun by participating in various activities, socials events and programs. We have over 60 activities including biking, wine tasting, book clubs, kayaking, dining in & out, cards, field trips and many, many more.
Membership is open to those who have lived in Falmouth for five years or less or had a life-changing event such as a change in marital status, death of a spouse/partner, or retirement within the last five years.
If you meet these qualifications and wish to join us, please fill out the online application and waiver for consideration. We are happy to welcome new members.
To Newcomers Members: I am the Vice President for Socials for 2020-2021, and Ann Marie Cunha is the VP for Socials. Since the phase-in process for Covid-19 has begun, some Socials events are now being held, following our Governor's guidelines. There are typically ten Socials held during the year, including events such as a wine tasting, a spring dinner dance, sailing on the Liberte', and more. These Socials provide members with an opportunity to socialize, meet new friends, and enjoy an afternoon or evening of fun and entertainment. You can find dates for future Socials listed on the website and further information and coupons will be in the appropriate Newsletter for each event. Please be aware that there may be some changes/cancellations due to COVID-19. We look forward to a time when all Socials functions can once again be held and we can enjoy one another's company.

As our governor begins the phase-in process, some outdoor activities where social distancing can be maintained are starting to meet. Other members continue to stay connected and engaged virtually.
Our new bird watching group shares resources and great photos of backyard visitors and the gardening group has ‘sent us’ to see the Keukenhof gardens in Amsterdam and garden competitions in England. Current Issues continues to have robust presentations/discussions, and Tech Tips helped us learn about lesser known cell phone features. Language groups are conversing via Zoom. Book Groups, dine in or out and classic film discussion groups have also met regularly online. Some are now beginning to meet outside, socially distancing, or course. Please contact the activity leaders if you would like to learn more.
Our thanks to Peg Kelly and Carolyn Wurm (Women’s 9-hole Golf), Patti Buresh (Scrabble), Jeanne Fortier and Sue Sargalski (Singles), Karen Epstein (Trivia Nights) and Lorraine Boles (9 & Dine) for doing such a great job leading these groups in the past.
IF YOU’D LIKE TO HELP, we are seeking a new leader or co-leaders for Scrabble. (This activity is on hold for now due to need to be playing at the same gameboard.) Most activities require just a few emails a month. Please consider volunteering so that we can keep this activity going. We are happy to help you get started. For more information, please contact us at
Welcome to the Newcomers Club of Falmouth’s Members Only Home Page!
We are a non-profit social club dedicated to engaging new residents (within the last 5 years) to the Town of Falmouth, MA., or “not so new” residents that (within the last 5 years) have retired or have had a life-changing event such as a divorce or the death of a spouse/partner.
Please spend some time browsing through the Members Only pages to see what’s going on. Whether you are a new member, or have been part of Newcomers for a while, I urge you to take advantage of our activities, programs and events. You’ll be surprised at how much fun you’ll have while making lifelong friendships!
I am the Vice President for Programs for 2020-2021 and Debra Cormier is the Assistant VP for Programs.
Monthly programs are planned at each business meeting, the second Thursday of each month from September through June. This is such a difficult time with restrictions and concerns about Covid-19. For that reason, we have planned the monthly programs that follow but please know that there may be some cancellations while other programs may be conducted using ZOOM.
We look forward to the time when we can meet face-to-face and we hope that will be as soon as our first meeting in September. The monthly newsletters will provide you with updated program information. Also, the website will provide updates on any program changes.
