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 October Luncheon, more than exceeded our expectations. If you couldn’t attend, no worries!

President's Message

November is finally here bringing us cooler temps and many exciting Fall Events!

In October our community volunteers had a wonderful time at Bright Blessings.  25 volunteers have already signed up for the second, hands on volunteer opportunity, on Wednesday, November 6.  BH&G is going to Gibson Mill on Monday, November 4.  There is plenty of room for all members to spend some time shopping and exploring. 

We now have a second Bunco group to accommodate more members.  Bunco is so popular we want to give as many people as possible a chance to join in the fun.

We are looking for volunteers to head up three activities:

1.  Out and About – similar to BH&G with various outings in or near Charlotte

2.  Mahjong – lead a beginner’s group for once a month play

3.  5 Deck Canasta – lead a beginner’s group for once a month play

Drama Queens has reserved 20 excellent seats at special rates to see Jersey Boys.  Plan to join us for Friday, December 6th at the Ovens Auditorium.  This toe-tapping feel good musical has rave reviews.  This is a fun night for you and a friend or spouse to attend.

We all know how that first meeting in a new group can be intimidating, so make sure you are the member to put your best self forward with a smile and a warm welcome.  Please put them under your wing and introduce her to members in your group.

Think of a ”New Friend” as a gift that is a fun chance to discover their talents; it will enrich your own life greatly.
