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 and to ease the transition. The club year begins in September and runs through May, but you may join anytime; not everyone arrives in the summer. New officers are elected annually.
To make your transition easier and a lot of fun, there are lots of activities, including coffees and teas on the first Wednesday of each month in the home of a member. No reservations are required for these events. Luncheons are held at 11:45 a.m. on the third Thursday of each month at a local restaurant. Reservations for the luncheons should be made seven days in advance.
Special events are held each month or every two months. These include trips to various points of interest in and around Morgantown. Members may attend as many of these events as they choose.
In addition, there are a number of small interest groups including bridge, “hands and feet”, cards, couples dinners, needlework, scrap booking and others.
Newcomers also support various charities in the community by holding a luncheon at which an auction is conducted with proceeds going to various charities. Moreover, newcomers hold monthly collections of articles needed by specific charities like the homeless shelter, food pantries, etc.
Membership in the club is $10 annually and members receive a directory which contains the names and addresses of members, names of officers and their addresses and a schedule of events for the year.
