Seacoast Newcomers Club

About Us

The Seacoast Newcomers Club (SNC) is a women's social club established over 50 years ago. We offer 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 primarily 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; as a member, the more engaged you are, the better our club. Past experience is not required to help - from serving refreshments, organizing events and activities or serving on the Board.

Meet Us

Please join us for one of our member Coffees! We meet at 9:30 am on the second Thursday of November, December, January, February, March and April at the Kittery Community Center, located at 120 Rogers Road, Kittery, Maine. The Community Center is just off the Kittery Circle.  On-site, free parking is available.

This free in-person event is open to all members and guests.  We do, however, ask members to pre-register.

Not a member yet? No problem, we'd love to see you! No registration required for guests.

Please note SNC wellness policy for all our events.

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 recently relocated to the Seacoast area. To meet new people, 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.
