For the Cary Newcomers Club, the month of May is a time when we look back on the work of the past year and also look ahead for an early start to the year that lies ahead of us. We have much of which to be proud in our organization. We have greeted many new members who have been appreciative of our warm welcome, while we delight in learning of their backgrounds, talents and vitality of new friends. Our meetings have presented entertaining and informative programs of health, nature, history and other aspects of life in Wake County that offer even long time residents the opportunity to make new discoveries of their hometowns. Along with the array of activities offered monthly, our Social Committee has once again brought us together for elegant gatherings in Winter and Spring, expanded by the work of the Charity Committee, whose efforts inspired all of us in the wonderful support of this year's designated beneficiary, the PolkaDot Mamas Melanoma Foundation.
As prescribed by our By-Laws, our General Meeting on May 2nd will include our annual General Business Meeting. At that time, we will present the end-of-year Treasurer's Report as well as the election of our slate of officers for the 2018-2019 year. Congratulations and thanks go to the women will lead us next year. We are in very good hands. Even so, our organization depends on the willingness of all members to take a part in the work that gives our activities its positive energy and I encourage everyone to offer your support and talents when called upon.

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.
We will meet at a local restaurant for dinner and play. Bunco is a fun social game that is easy to learn! 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.
