The Pacific Palisades Newcomers & Friends, founded in 1950, was originally intended to welcome those who had recently moved into our community by offering participation in a wide range of activities.
The group has morphed into a social organization that welcomes new and established Palisadians and those from nearby areas including Brentwood, Malibu, Santa Monica and Topanga Canyon.
Newcomers and Friends provides a range of social activities and there is no obligation to attend a general meeting nor any philanthropic requirements. Dues are $25 per year and members receive a monthly newsletter distributed via email.
Every month, members participate in a range of activities: bridge, canasta, golf, book and movie discussions, gourmet cooking, restaurant dining and happy hours, potluck lunches with speakers, hiking, and exploring the L.A. area.
For example, the group has organized a Mah Jongg game every fourth Tuesday of the month at a local restaurant, and all are encouraged to have lunch and play.
In November, plans include exploring the bargains of downtown Santee Alley, enjoying a brown-bag lunch at the Palisades Rec Center and hearing a discussion of senior scams.
The group said it “welcomes new ideas and will work with you to create a group that enables you to follow your passion.”
