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

Hi Ladies, I hope that we are all staying safe and well in our confinement and finding ways to keep up with our friends. This is a very strange time we are experiencing. However, it has introduced us to social connecting through apps like ZOOM, Skype, and FaceTime to name a few. This virus has also changed the way we had to vote for our new slate of officers. Normally we vote in person at the April membership luncheon. We are happy to announce that our results from online voting have been quite successful. For those who chose to participate, we had a unanimous vote “yes”. Our board will be discussing how to move forward for future surveys. The online voting does allow for the entire club to vote if they so choose. We had a substantial higher number of votes than we would have had at a luncheon.

  I know we will be so happy to see each other again and even more appreciative of our NFC friendships and fun activities.
