Newcomers and Friends Provides Social Engagement

Members of the Newcomers Club on one of their jaunts.

If you’re bored with your routine and tired of seeing the same people over and over and over – and tired of doing the same thing over and over and over. . ..think about joining the Newcomer and Friends organization.

Newcomers is a women’s social organization that includes newcomers and long-time residents of Pacific Palisades and adjacent areas: Brentwood, Malibu, Santa Monica and Topanga.

The group is composed entirely of women, but men are welcome, too. Membership is $25 for a year and includes a monthly newsletter.

Goals of the group are to facilitate connecting with the community and each other by participating in a wide range of special interest and social activities.

This year’s publicity chair Peggy Levin said, “Join this group and get more involved in the life of the Palisades!”

Levin said the group encourages connection to community through participation and is open to both new and long-term residents.

Members gather at potluck and restaurant lunches, happy hour, and some evenings, gather in homes or restaurants.

Daytime activities include book and film discussions, volunteering, visiting the cultural icons of the city, gardening, knitting, hiking and walking groups, golf, bridge, Mah Jongg and Canasta.

In September, there are already plans for a trip to the downtown Los Angeles Library and a friendly coffee hour at K’s Bakery at the plaza at Sunset Boulevard and Palisades Drive. Visit: click here.

    Omg! Is this true? Is this a new group or how did I miss it over the years?
    I am a Senior Citizen, so not sure I would be able to contribute much; maybe could
    still play Canasta? Also, some Pot Luck Lunches, Coffees, Happy Hour.
    Or, maybe I should just stay home?

    Please Be frank and advise – I will not be offended.

    Best wishes,

    Reca. L. Gerchik.
