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).
