Morgantown Newcomers Club
The Morgantown Newcomers Club
welcomes you to West Virginia’s beautiful mountains,
clear streams and honest people.
The club helps new residents get
acquainted with their new home community and founded by
Pat Stewart of Pat Stewart REALTORS. The club is now
more than 30 years old.
It provides an opportunity for new
residents to gather socially, to develop new friendships

third Thursday of each month at a local restaurant.
Reservations for the luncheons should be made seven days
