Luncheons & General Meetings

    • 10:30 AM - 1:30 PM (PDT)
    • Atlantis Casino Resort, 3800 S. Virginia Street, Reno, 2nd Floor

          PROGRAM


         The Cessna Aircraft

    The speaker for June 24 will be Janice Cessna Clarke, long- time Reno resident and the only granddaughter of Cessna Aircraft Company founder, Clyde V. Cessna. Janice will share her personal story of this early 20th century industrialist from his early days on the Kansas farm to his first flight, just 7 years after the Wright Brothers. The founding of the company and the personal struggles of this aviation pioneer will be told through family pictures and stories.

    Although he left his position as President of Cessna at the height of the Great Depression, the company he established is known today throughout the world as a leading manufacturer of private airplanes.

                          About Our Luncheon

                          Newcomers and Neighbors holds a monthly social luncheon or evening Mix & Mingle for members and their guests that also serves as the Club’s general business meeting. It is often held on the fourth Thursday of the month, except for October, November and December, when it's held the third Thursday.  At each event, we have entertaining programs featuring local talent or a speaker and a basket raffle. Events are generally held at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa, but may occasionally move to other locations during the year.  At $27 per person, it is an outstanding value for great food, great company, and great entertainment. New members and members attending for the first time are seated together in a front row table and will be introduced by Hospitality.

                          Except for our annual special event, you must be a club member to register for a luncheon.  You may have up to 5 guests (your guests do not have to be members).
