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 INTERESTGROUPS below.

President's Message

"Tis the Season"
and we all start gearing up for lots of gatherings with friends and family this month!!  We're a week earlier for our monthly NFC Membership Luncheon due to our normal time on the fourth Thursday due to Thanksgiving.

DIRECTORIES!  Please attend our luncheons and pick up your 2019-20 printed Directory.  Many of us are getting up-to-date directory information from our website app which will call your contact from your smartphone app for you or even direct you with GPS maps to their house.  Our newly printed directory missed the cutoff for many of our newest members, so it is already obsolete.

We have a limited supply of directories to keep costs down and we are distributing these only to people who prefer a paper copy.  We will not be mailing these out due to mailing costs, so pick one up at a luncheon, at an interest group, or contact someone on the Board and we will make sure you get one through various channels.  If you don't make it to a luncheon, a friend can pick yours up by signing for you.

Be sure to make your reservation for our December 19th Membership Luncheon at Firethorn which is also pushed up a week earlier due to  the Christmas and Holiday Season.

I don't think it matters what we call it, or which of the holidays we celebrate this time of year, as long as we experience the feeling of connection, love, peace for all and the joy of our friends and family - and we're off to the busy season.
