In like a lion out like a lamb!  Not for Newcomers/Longtimers!  
The 2015-2016 year started strong with the election of new
officers and committee chairs who immediately got to work
updating bylaws, planning activities like diners, drive-ins and
dives, couples bunco, craft classes and a book clubs, not to
mention the 22nd annual home tour.  The year is going out the
same way it started, with a roar, with amazing attendance at
the home tour, the installation of new officers and a raffle to
benefit Helping Hands.

Long before there was the Community Bridge, long before
there was Porto Cima, long before there was the outlet mall or
H Toads there were the Newcomers/Longtimers.  Chartered in
1965 by a group of enterprising women, N/L is both a lake
institution and tradition.  Each year N/L supports the
community and many of its local charities through scholarships
and fund raising events, like the annual home tour and
community awareness activities.  But the group is not all work
and no play.  Each month N/L hosts a luncheon that includes a
variety of programs designed to interest, inform and
entertain.   Each month the group meets to play a ruckus game
of bunco, attend a movie followed by dinner, share a good
book, indulge in a cocktail at happy hour or enjoy a day of
cards and games.

Newcomers/Long timers is an organization composed of    
women from all over the lake region with a membership          
averaging  approximately 250 women. There are many fun      
activities that have been added to our calendar that will         
allow you to meet and interact with other members.

We are not only a social organization but a charitable one as
well. Our annual home tour is our biggest undertaking. The
money raised is given back to local lake charities and awarded
as scholarships to students attending local colleges and      
technical schools.

Please come and join us. We look forward to meeting you and
introducing you to other women who may become your       
lifelong friends.

iGive” donates to chosen
organizations through on-line

N/L has always sought new and
innovative ways to enable the
group to better accomplish its
mission over the years.  Recently,
members of the N/L board signed
up for “iGive,” an organization
that arranges for merchants
(currently more than 1,700) to
donate to specified organizations
on behalf of individuals that
purchase their products and
services.  It costs nothing, you
simply shop with one of the
participating merchants and they
donate an average of 3% to your
designated organization. Again,
you will spend nothing extra - in
fact you'll often save money with
exclusive coupons, free shipping
specials, and sales only available
for iGive members. It's simple, it's
free, and it's fast.

We encourage you to consider
this opportunity as you do your
on-line shopping.  Simply sign up
iGive.com, specify Newcomers/
Longtimers as the organization
you wish to support, then return
to iGive.com when you are ready
to shop,   search for your favorite
store (or we recommend
downloading their icon to your
computer, making it even
easier!), click on the link, then
shop away!  The donations are
made automatically to your
specified cause.
