Welcome to your New Home Town!

Since 1992, the Newcomers Club of Greater Chapel Hill has provided opportunities for members to connect, learn and explore the rich history and social life of the Triangle.   With over 250 members, our Club offers hundreds of activities throughout the year, both in-person and on Zoom.


Book Clubs, Golf, Hiking, Walking, Mahjong,  Lunch & Coffee groups, Singles groups, Documentary Films discussions, and regular Educational and Social events are just a few of the activities you’ll find with Newcomers.    Take a look at the Upcoming Events below!


You’ll meet new both arrivals and residents who have been here for a while who can “show you the ropes”.   This is your opportunity to become part of an active and vibrant community of friends, and you’re likely to meet someone who moved from your part of the country!

Virtual Meet & Greet

We have resumed our monthly Meet & Greet get-togethers on Zoom,
so watch the calendar for the dates (usually the first Monday of the month).

Grab a favorite beverage, a snack, and let's pretend we're at The Carolina Inn,
touching base with old friends and meeting new ones.

You will have a chance to talk with kindred spirits who know your part of the country or who share your enthusiasms, whether hiking or wine tasting, dinner groups or book clubs, discussions or games, indoors or outdoors.

Board members will provide updates on all the monthly and special events being planned. Let’s share ideas and thoughts for Club activities, both virtual and in-person, as we look forward to a more normal existence.

Sound good?   Contact Becky Bahlman at
and she will get you signed up for the next Meet & Greet!

We's love to see your smiling face!
