CNN luncheons are the fourth Thursday of the month, unless otherwise noted in the newsletter.
- Spring Tea Honoring Mothers, May 6, 2017 at the Good Samaritan Church in Valley Springs.
In early 2009, a group of ladies new to Calaveras County ventured forth to bring together other area newcomers with the purpose of meeting their neighbors and becoming acquainted with the activities and resources of Calaveras County. This endeavor became a reality when on March 26th, 2009, the Calaveras Neighbors and Newcomers Club met for their first luncheon meeting.
The Club is a non-profit social organization and membership is open to all local and newcomer women residing in Calaveras County and the surrounding areas regardless of how long she has resided in the county. Monthly luncheon meetings, along with interesting speakers, are held on the fourth Thursday of the month.
As a service to the community, members bring non-perishable food items/cash to the monthly luncheon to be donated to our local Food Bank. At the end of the club’s year, members vote on local charities to be the recipient of a donation raised from our annual Spring Tea honoring mothers and a Silent Auction held in November.
In addition to the luncheon, many ladies participate in one or more of our special interest groups, another way to foster new friendships. Members receive a monthly newsletter with important information on group activities, monthly luncheons, and upcoming community events.
