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

The President's Message

Good day, Friends,

August by Vinaya Joseph

In August heat, memories are spun
In Laughter shared and battles won
A tapestry of moments, woven tight
In August's embrace, we find delight.

This August, we hope you will spin memories in laughter shared at the various NFC activities offered.  Seek a new experience in an interest group that has room for you.  Take a spot in one of the Mexican Train groups. Try Mah Jongg.  Perfect your cross stitch, quilting, knitting or crocheting with the women of Sip and Stitch.  Join the sub list for Dining with Divas by calling Chair Chris Green at 704-621-0893 or learn about organizing a new group of Winers and Diners by contacting Co-Chairs Karen Bearss at 704-770-1542 or Connie McKay at 989-708-1782.  Travel to Tega Cay with Brews and Bites to sample libations from the Model A Brewing Co. And top off the month by registering on July 24th for the August luncheon.  This will be a splendid brunch located at the Hyatt Centric Hotel Southpark's rooftop restaurant Mizu, decorated with colorful murals of Charlotte's lauded past.  You will hear a speaker address some historical highlights of the Queen City.  May you find August's embrace delightful this coming month in New Friends!

Debbie Williams, President NFC
