For over 30 years, the Comox Valley Newcomers Club has welcomed women from across Canada and from all parts of the world. Our members meet women and make lasting friendships. They explore their community and discover fascinating details about their new home. And we have fun!

The Club offers a variety of activities for all interests. Check out the list of our activities under the About Us.

Message from the President

Message from the President

Suddenly it is September.

Welcome to the beginning of our new year. The Newcomer’s executive team has been working all summer to continue our shift from waiting for the pandemic to be over to living and being active during these times.

We have developed the Activity Start-Up and Safety Plan to guide our members and convenors while re-engaging in our activities. Those of you who have had a chance to attend the picnics, the walks, hikes, and bike rides know how well the new guidelines and protocols are working. If you haven’t had the chance yet, please go to the website and read over the policies and the updated waiver. Everyone must sign the new wavier and review the guidelines before attending any of the in-person events.

We will be holding all our general meetings via zoom for the foreseeable future. Our next Zoom general meeting is on Tuesday, September 14th. If you haven’t received the zoom link, contact a member of the executive, and we will send it to you.

This month we also have two special kick-off in-person meetings on September 21st at 4:00 and 7:00 pm.  The meetings will be identical in content, although different members of the executive and convenors will be at each. The goal is to give everyone a chance to meet, drink some delicious wine and learn about the activities and how to sign up for them. I hope to see you there.

To attend, you must be a member and pre-register. New or renewing members need to have sent us your waiver, membership form or membership renewal form and your $20 fee. To join Newcomers, click on this link. Members contact the Hospitality Coordinator to pre-register.

 

Take care, be kind and stay safe.
