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 am sure we are all looking forward to cooler weather!  Welcome Fall!

Several of our activities are filling up quickly and have been fun events that were well  attended.

Our luncheons have been successful with wonderful speakers.  Please give some thought to attending this month’s luncheon.

We are asking all members to please enter with their masks on.  I received a couple of comments from members who felt uncomfortable because some ladies had removed their masks.  I know it is hard to talk with them on, and I find I get very hot wearing mine, but we still have to be conscience of others.

We are excited to have New Friends of Carolina face masks.  They will be sold at events so please ask about them. 

Next month our Membership Directory should be available.   We also have a new member, Monya Thomas,  who is going to start a golf group,  so look for her article in the newsletter.

 It’s hard to believe that Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas are only months away.  I think this year has been very hard on everyone.  It can be a very lonely time especially if you are on your own.   Hopefully, more things will start to open us, so we can see our friends more often.

Hopefully, I will see you at an event soon.

Stay safe and healthy.
