Our group enjoyed good food at Sandbar cafe and a stroll on the Lighthouse trail.

Going Solo


Our group offers friendship and social support for the unique needs of single folks. 

Member generated activities augment the program offered in the mainstream Newcomer's Club.  If your interests include theatre, travel, dining, special events, walking, fine arts events.... and more....join us for fun with the group!

If you have an idea for a particular activity or interest, put it out to the group and get together will like minded people or select a group in your area that you would like to get to know and get together for coffee, walking, or just talking.

We do not have a social committee and activities are initiated by individuals in the group.

What are your interests??
