About Us

Welcome to the Seacoast Newcomers Club!

Seacoast Newcomers Club (SNC) can help you with all of that!  We are a social group with a charitable and educational interests that’s been in the Seacoast for more than 50 years.  We are more than 250 women who enjoy making friends, spending time together, giving back to our communities and learning about the history, art, culture and opportunities in the Seacoast area.

From the Presidents -

“When I was house hunting on the Seacoast, my daughter-in-law treated me to a pedicure. I got to chatting with a wonderful, friendly woman sitting next to me. When she heard we were moving here to be near family she spoke glowingly about the Seacoast Newcomers Club. So the next Spring (we Wintered in Florida at the time) I looked into it. Now for several years I’ve been on the board in various roles and engage in all sorts of activities. Through the Club I’ve met some of my very best friends.” – Joyce, President 2022-23

 “Before moving to Exeter, I changed homes, states and countries 18 times.  As an Air Force spouse, I am well versed in looking for connections, finding friends and learning about the history, culture and fun available where I live.   That’s why Newcomers was a perfect match for me.  I joined in 2020, just as COVID was locking us into our homes.  Despite the odds, I made connections through Zoom coffee chats, online happy hours and outdoor activities like kayaking and aerobic walking.  Three years later, I am the new president of the club and have enjoyed volunteering locally, leading a team for club luncheons, going to various art programs, wine tastings and lectures as well as snowshoeing, walking, playing canasta and visiting local breweries.  I do not have enough fingers to count the friends I have made.” – Paige, President 2023-24

We would love to have you join our group!  There are tons of activities to choose from- bunco, cribbage, coffees with speakers, historical house tours are just a few.  You can volunteer in activities that support our charity of the year or join the Low Tiders special interest group for beach clean-up.  We have a book club, Breakfast Buddies, and wine tastings.

 You can explore the Seacoast area with programs.  Perhaps a guided tour of the Currier Museum of Art or the Pepperell House?  Just this past year we enjoyed three luncheons at restaurants in Durham, North Hampton and Rye.We have eaten, read, kayaked, skied, golfed and most importantly laughed.  Can’t find the thing you are looking for?  Then Newcomers will support you in starting a new special interest group like the Knitting connection and Mexican Train did just this year!

One of the best things about Seacoast Newcomers Club that you can be a member for years and years.  There is no term limit and we all benefit from the continuity and connections of the women around us.  Please sign up today or come to one of our monthly coffees as a guest and check us out!  We would love to meet you.  I will be there!   And again, welcome to the Seacoast area!
