Making Friends and Becoming Part of a Community
Since the 1960s, people who have made the New River Valley their home have found the transition made easier by joining the Blacksburg Newcomers' Club. We welcome residents of any age, gender, nationality, race, or religion.
Club members meet monthly for a general meeting, which includes social time and a fun, informative program. Members participate in smaller interest group activities such as wine tasting, supper circles, book clubs and more.
As a member, you will receive a monthly newsletter that includes general meeting, activities, and Interest Group information. This information can also be found on this website.
Each monthly meeting features a speaker from a local Community Service Organization and members may bring needed items as well. We have participated in a "Reverse Advent" challenge to support the food pantry, our book clubs have collected books for the Montgomery County Emergency Assistance Program's Christmas Store, we have held a silent auction to benefit Micah's Closet and we make an annual year-end donation to a local charity. You can find links to organizations we have supported here.
Our Interest Groups offer opportunities to meet others and share hobbies and leisure activities. Interest Groups include: Book Clubs, Girls Night Out, Lunch Bunch, Evening Movie Group, Circle Supper Club, Wine Tasting, Brunch Group, Papercrafting, Needleworks, Wednesday Walkers and Gadabouts! If you don't see a group with your interests, we'll help you get one started.
Social events are also planned in the evenings for all members and their partners. Past events have included Chili Cook Offs, Mix n' Mingles, Holiday Brunch, Kentucky Derby socials, and Year End May Socials.
