Seacoast Newcomers Club

About Us

Now in its 51st year, Seacoast Newcomers Club (SNC) offers its members the opportunity to make new friends, share common interests, and participate in a wide variety of social, educational, and philanthropic activities.

Our 200+ members live on the New Hampshire Seacoast, southern coast of Maine or the northeast coast of Massachusetts, which we collectively call the Seacoast area.

We are a member-run organization. We encourage all members to assist in ways small and not so small- from helping with refreshments, to organizing a Special Interest Group, to taking on one-time event tasks or to serving in one of our 10+ Board positions.

Whether you are new to the Seacoast area or are a long-time resident, we welcome women who are looking to enjoy new friendships while sharing favorite interests and nurturing new ones.

Our Club Stories

Our members join SNC for a variety of reasons.  Here are a few of our stories:

I joined SNC when I moved to the Seacoast area 20+ years ago. It was a great way to make new friends. Later I served in multiple board positions, including President of SNC. Today, I participate in several Special Interest Groups, where I spend time with long-term friends and enjoy meeting new members.
Our family relocated to the Seacoast area in 2017. I joined SNC and found activities that I could do in the morning and evening that fit within my work schedule.
After living in the Seacoast area for many years, I retired from a very busy professional career. One of my neighbors recommended that I join SNC. Since joining, I have participated in some of the fitness-related Special Interest Groups. Also, my husband and I joined the Wine Tasting Special Interest Group. SNC has been a great way to make new friends and share my knowledge of the Seacoast area with those who are new to the area.

Community Service

Each year we designate a local non-profit organization as our Community Service.  This year, we are supporting Gather whose mission is "To make the Greater Seacoast a hunger-free community."    

A portion of the annual membership dues, as well as proceeds from other fundraisers throughout the year are donated to the charity. Last year, our members donated very generously, even during COVID, to our designated charity, which was End 68 Hours of Hunger. End 68 Hours of Hunger is a public non-profit effort to confront the approximately 68 hours of hunger that some school children experience between the free lunch they receive in school Friday and the free breakfast they receive in school Monday.
