Welcome to Newcomers & Friends of Georgetown
On behalf of Newcomers and Friends of Georgetown, I would like to thank you for visiting our website. We are a social group whose main purposes are to introduce new residents to Georgetown and its resources; to acquaint long standing residents with newcomers and the community; and to facilitate new connections through shared benefits and social activities. We accomplish these purposes through our monthly meetings, our numerous Special Interest Groups, socials, Coffee and Conversation, and day trips. Whether you just moved to Georgetown recently or have been here for years, we offer you the opportunity to make new friends and enjoy a variety of activities.
You can pay your $25 yearly dues, which covers all the adults in a household, on-line, by postal mail, or at a meeting. Our membership page has all the details.
We hope you’ll check out our calendar, learn about Special Interest Groups, enjoy photos of our meetings and members, and read our newsletters. Please feel free to contact us. Your email will be answered as promptly as possible.
Laura Packard, 2019-20 President
Newcomers and Friends of Georgetown
Dear Newcomers and Friends of Georgetown,
In light of the most current CDC recommendations, and since we know that social distancing is the best way to protect our members and avoid contributing to the COVID-19 problem, the board has decided to cancel our April 2nd and May 7th meetings at Berry Creek Country Club. If the recommendations change sooner than expected, we’ll try to reinstate the May 7th style show and luncheon.
We were supposed to elect our new officers and committee chairs at the April meeting, so we will be working on a method for electronic voting instead. Be watching for an email in a week or so about voting, and please vote. We need something official for the new president and treasurer to take to the bank!
We will leave it up to SIG’s to decide about their activities, since we know that everyone will want to do what’s best for us as individuals and for all our friends and family and fellow citizens.
Even though most of the SIG’s will need to suspend their activities, those of us Wander Walkers who walked this morning agreed that we’ll keep on walking, so we’d welcome you to contact our SIG Coordinator, Susie Logan, through the website and join us! We walk in parks on Monday and Wednesday at 9:00, and there are a few of us who walk on Friday, even though it’s not an official walking day. It’s a great way to see friends and enjoy our great Georgetown parks, and we all know that an hour of walking is good for us.
During this time, we should all stay in touch with our Newcomers friends and look out for each other so that we don’t feel so isolated during the next few weeks. If you need some assistance or just someone to chat with, please contact us through the website or by emailing or calling a board member.
President, Newcomers and Friends of Georgetown
