Have Fun!

If you’re looking for an opportunity to get out of the house, make new friends and participate in exciting activities, then look no further. New Friends of Carolina (NFC) is what you’ve been looking for. Founded in 1989 as a not- for- profit social club for women, NFC welcomes both new comers to the Carolinas as well as those who have lived here for years.

There’s no need for concern about pressure. You’ll find the members of our club to be both friendly and welcoming. They simply want you to join in the activities and have some fun. There’s something for everyone. For a complete list of activities see INTEREST GROUPS below.Learn More

President's Message

March, the first month of Spring.  Spring is a hopeful season!  It brings transformation, change and new growth.  “The new life, new beginnings, and bright, colorful new look that spring brings are hopeful signs that life on this earth renews again and again. We don’t remain in any one season or cycle in life indefinitely. Seasons change. We, too, have cycles and rhythms to our lives and to our growth process.”

And, so does a club see seasons, cycles and rhythms to it’s growth process.  We just celebrated NFC’s 30th Anniversary and learned how our club has changed and evolved throughout those years.   What started out as a young mothers’ club that required babysitting so that mothers could attend meetings, has grown into a club of mature women who have raised their families and had careers.  Now they finally have time for themselves and want to meet new friends and find fun activities to do. Let’s all try to remember this, as our club continues to grow and evolve.  Just as our logo is a colorful circle of women holding hands, let’s remember we are all different, but by working together we form a strong unbroken circle.

Speaking of new growth, we are happy to introduce some “new growth” to our website! From the website Main Menu, you can now access the Document Library and Photo Albums. (See Tips and Tricks in another part of this newsletter). The Document Library, which has been categorized by Debbie Williams, will hold all the official and authorized club documentation.  Photo Albums contains photos of club events that Elly Grespin and Barbara Evers have taken throughout the year. 

Dinner anyone?  If you enjoy going out for dinner, Winers and Diners Group 2 is an evening group that meets on the second Saturday of each month.  They have room to grow! For more information, see Winers and Diners in this newsletter.  Happy Spring!
