Club members enjoyed  a lovely night out on the veranda of the Village Tavern in Charlotte.

Bright Blessings

Pauline Trautman, Libby Joyce, Diane McCartney, and Moira Yeager present a check for $500 to Bright Blessings.

Get Out. 
Make New Friends.
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.

President's Message


Hello Ladies,

I like the Fall season.  Not only do we have wonderful colors in the trees but also beautiful Carolina blue skies. It also came with really cool mornings and evenings.

On October 6th, Moira Yeager, Libby Joyce, Diane McCartney, and I went to Bright Blessing and presented them with a check for $500.  This was the result of the money we collected from the sale of the NFC face masks.  They were overwhelmed with our generous gift.

Our lunches have been well attended, considering COVID 19.  We had 28 ladies last month who enjoyed our wonderful speaker Dr. Ray Drury. I believe that 13 ladies signed up to visit with him.  I was one of them, and so far I have been very impressed.  Dr. Drury is a Chiropractor who specializes in Upper Cervical Care.

At the Board meeting we discussed opening up another Bunco Group as well as another Contract Rummy Group.  These are popular events that fill up very quickly.

If you are out an about, remember to invite ladies to attend our group and share in the fun times we experience.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends.
