For the Cary Newcomers Club (CNC), June is the month when our leadership changes—our executive board and committee chairpersons pass the baton to yet another group of capable, responsible members. As part of the new “incoming” executive board, let me say “THANK YOU!” to the “outgoing” board members and committee chairs. Their commitment and hard work make CNC the organization it is—one that truly fosters new associations and friendships through shared social activities. True, we will experience some change in June, but rest assured our CNC as reputed will remain constant…and having said that, here’s a mnemonic to help us think about our Cary Newcomers Club:
C: Community identification and comradery.
A: Activities galore!
R: Revival of latent interests,such as learning to play bridge,mahjong,or scrabble.
Y: “Y’all always welcome here and for as long as you want.”
N: “Newcomers”—people brand new to the area or living here for years.
E: Epicureans. We do love food and wine at our social gatherings.
W: Wine-tasting groups. At the moment, there are four that I know of.
C: Civic and cultural programs and monthly presentations.
O: Open..without regard to race,creed,sex,national origin,or any other social factor.
M: Making new friends. Meet more than your neighbors.
E: Embark on something new for you.
R: Restaurants and coffee shops—the diversity astounds. Did I mention we love food?
S: Stimulating new associations and friendships through shared social activities.
C: Charity. We raise money and donate it to our local community.
L: “Learn and Play Golf” or “Lunch and a Movie”: the “L’s of our activities.
U: Upbeat and friendly, a description of our members.
B: “Book Club,” “Bowling,” “Breakfast Club,” or “Bunco,”: the “B’s” of our activities.
Work for you?
Let’s continue to make this club great. I encourage you to be creative, step up, and step out. See you at some activity during the summer and then again at the monthly meeting in August.

New Members & Guest
We all remember what it's like to walk into an established group and be the only person who doesn't know anyone. It can be a bit overwhelming. This brunch provides a great opportunity for prospective and new members to get to know each other in a casual setting where other "newbies" are also anxious to make new friends. At the same time, you can learn more about Cary Newcomers Club activities and events!
The brunch is designed for anyone who is relatively new to CNC or is thinking about joining. Please come and get to know other people just like you! If you're a member and have someone you'd like to introduce to CNC, please come and bring them. And if you've attended before and want to come back and meet other new people, please join us.
This group welcomes experienced and beginner knitters. We will meet twice a month in members' homes.
Please sign up at the General Meeting.
MEN’S AND WOMEN’S EVENING BOOK CLUB
This great new evening Book Club is just getting started.
If interested in joining, please sign up at the General Meeting
YEAH!! We have another Wine Group forming. Cary Newcomers Club currently has other Wine Groups that are so popular they are currently full. But good news...We’re starting a new group! Wine Groups are a great way to get to know each other and also get our Significant Others involved. This activity is open to all members, single and couples. Bring a bottle of your favorite wine, or one you’ve been wanting to try, along with an appetizer to share. Sign up at the General Meeting.
