Newcomers Club Board Positions Open for 2024-2025     

The Board meets 5 times during the year, typically following a Coffee. Volunteers are needed!  Please call Denise B. at 304 685-1291 and consider donating some of your time to keep our Club active!  Our Board is a wonderful group of people that keep ideas flowing and work together to bring our members many opportunities to socialize and keep active in our community.


We are in need of a Treasurer and Assistant Treasurer, to begin on July 1, 2024. Our present Treasurers will help the new members transition to their new positions. We are also looking for a Secretary that will take minutes at our Board Meetings.
