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.

Bright Blessings and New Friends of Carolina! What a great partnership!

Our wonderful members are amazing. Our collections to date, including our September Luncheon, more than exceeded our expectations. If you couldn’t attend, no worries! Our collection bin will be front and center at the next several luncheons, as well as Princess Piggy for collecting loose change and bills, and envelopes for checks and gift cards.  For more information on Bright Blessings, including their Needs List, click the link to our Community Volunteers page here:

President's Message

Happy Fall, I am sure we are all looking forward to some cooler weather!

We have 48 new members this year and we are growing.     Our current membership is 279 women!  A shout-out (and thanks!) to our Club/Interest Group Chairs for managing your group and coming up with creative ideas.  Breaking away into smaller groups is the best way to make friends and create deeper relationships.   We are an ever-changing club with ever-changing interests and needs.   We are always open to creating new interest clubs (or a second club) if you have a great idea.

A few activities are filling up quickly, before they even get announced in the newsletter.   This leaves some of our newer members unable to attend events since they are not yet familiar with when to sign up on the website.   Events like Better Homes and Gardens, BH&G, get filled by word of mouth.  Bunco is another very popular fun group.   We have started a second Bunco #2 group to accommodate more members.  Crafty Creations is also becoming a very popular event and fills up quickly.  Most venues can only accommodate a certain number of women.    To be fair to all members, and to have a chance to get their reservation in for an event, please do not sign up for events before our newsletter comes out.  The newsletter comes out the Wednesday before the monthly membership luncheon.  You will find all events in the current month’s newsletter which has the date, who, what, when; THEN look for the date on the web calendar, or the link in the newsletter and sign up online for that month’s 
 ”Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy and reach out to everyone.”
