We’d be happy to welcome you as Falmouth Newcomers to meet new friends while enjoying the many activities, programs and socials. If you have any questions, please call me at 508-400-6686.
Vice President for Socials
Welcome to the Social site. I am the Vice President for Socials for 2022- 2023 and Mary Gray is the Assistant Vice President for Socials. There are typically ten Socials held during the year. These events provide varied opportunities to socialize, meet new friends, support local venues and enjoy an afternoon or evening of fun and entertainment. Some examples are: a sunset cruise on the Island Queen, a sail on the schooner Liberte’, wine and beer tasting, Oktoberfest, a dinner dance and more.
You can find information about the Socials on the website. The details, dates, cost, reservation coupons and all other pertinent information can be found in the appropriate monthly Newsletter as well as “Save the Date” for future events. We also welcome your help to serve on a planning committee. Consider volunteering!

Vice President for Activities
Welcome to Activities for the Falmouth Newcomers Club! Along with my
Assistant VP for Activities, Robin Hodor, we would like to encourage all
members to join one or more activities. It’s an excellent way to develop
friendships with others who enjoy similar interests. There are more than 60
activities to choose from including book clubs and games, outdoor
recreation, social, and special interest.
To join an activity, simply send an email to the person designated as
Leader on the Newcomers website Activities page and let them know that
you’d like to be included. Some activities may require experience while
others may be open to beginners. Membership in a group is ultimately left
to the discretion of the Leader. There may be other requirements for certain
In addition, you may start a new group in something that interests you. The
Newcomer’s Club is member-driven and suggestions for new activities are
always welcome. Periodically activities need new leaders, and this may be
a great opportunity for you to step into a role where you can guide, shape,
and sustain the activity.
A reminder that membership in the Newcomers Club is a prerequisite to
participating in the activities. Please feel free to contact myself and/or
Robin should you have any questions.

July 1 is the official start of the 2022-2023 Newcomers’ year. We have installed our new board, and, as a board, we are excited about the new year and very busy making plans that we hope you will enjoy. Thank you, Deb Cormier and Cindy Fay, for a lovely installation event; it was wonderful to see so many people there. A special thank you to Geri Smith, our now Past President. Thank you for leading us through this past year; making those last-minute decisions about whether it was safe to meet in person. Geri used safety, not fear as her guiding principle, and kept us true to our mission – friendship.
As we move ahead, you can see that we have many social events planned for this summer and into the Fall. The Liberte Cruise, a night at the ball game, a wine tasting, and then, in September, our always popular Island Queen cruise! I hope you can attend one or more of them. See all the details in this newsletter and on the website.
Making friends at Newcomers is easy; just join one of our many activities (we have over 60!). It is here that you will see people on a regular basis while sharing a common interest. I love to walk and have met many friends by joining the walking groups. You can easily sign up for an activity on our website: (www.falmouthnewcomers.org) You will also be able to meet many of our activity leaders at our September 8th general meeting – save the date!
So do something good for yourself; join a new activity, attend a social. Try a “Mix and Mingle” or help plan a social event. You’ll be surprised how many friends are waiting to meet you. We have 600+ members; I have not met all of you, but I would like to!
