The Comox Valley Newcomers’ Club
We are a social club open to women who have resided in the Comox Valley for less than two years. Monthly meetings offer interesting topics and speakers as well as information on how to sign up for activities and meet other women new to the area.
Our last general meeting was held virtually through Zoom on Tuesday, June 16 at 7 pm. We are truly grateful to be connecting with everyone again and look forward to our next zoom meeting on September 14. The zoom link to the meeting will arrive in your inbox before the meeting. All newcomers to the Comox Valley are welcome to attend. Please go to “Contact us” to make a request for a link to the meeting if you do not receive it by email.

Message from the President
I am so honoured to be the new President of the Comox Valley Newcomers and am grateful to be part of this amazing group of women. We have come to this beautiful Valley from all over the world and bring diverse life experience and wisdom. Now that we are over the first stage of this global pandemic, we will be needing that deep well to guide our group in moving forward in order to fulfill our mandate of welcoming and connecting Newcomers with each other and to the plethora of possibilities in the Valley.
We are working on reopening our activities and meetings while following the guidelines given to us by that other wise woman, Dr. Bonnie Henry. We know that people want to meet in person and are developing ways for that to happen. We will also be connecting in new ways as we did for our AGM in May on Zoom and our upcoming general meeting on June 16. Some of our activities, such as book clubs, crafting, and even the décor group have transferred to a virtual format and have continued to meet throughout these months. Our executive and committees are open to suggestions and ideas from all of our members. Our strength is our collective knowledge and creativity.
Please feel welcome to join us. There are friends waiting for you here.
President, Comox Valley Newcomers
