Message from the President

Welcome to the Comox Valley Newcomers!

Our purpose is to welcome women to this beautiful valley and to help you create experiences that lead you to be happy here, with new friendships, a supportive network and shared memories.

We have been doing this successfully for over 30 years. If you are new to the Comox Valley within the last two years, you are welcome to join us. The second Monday of the month is our general meeting—a Zoom party for now. Interesting speakers teach us about various aspects of our new home. We dance, sing, and play together, but most of all connect.

The Club has many outdoor and indoor activity groups such as weekly walking, biking, hiking groups, book clubs and craft group. We also meet for movies, coffee, art, drinks, and food. With Covid, we have curtailed many activities, but we are creating new experiences on Zoom.

I invite you to join us and discover what is possible.

Denise Evans, President
