As of today, October 2, 2019, dues will no longer be collected for New to Salem. Events will continue to be planned as usual through the end of December. Ann and I are ready to move on from organizing for the New to Salem (N2S) Meetup group. We found what we were looking for in joining N2S and we would like to see it survive for the next generation of newbies. Currently we are looking for applicant(s) interested to take over N2S and revitalize it. We would like that person to be invested in our group by attending our Meetups to understand our culture. Ideally this person needs to have attended at least 3 Meetups with our group. We'd be happy to show the right person the ropes. If we cannot find the right person to do so by December 31, 2019 we will let the group disband. It has been our pleasure in welcoming new people to Salem (as we were new, too) and we'll continue to do so until the end of this year. We look forward to hear from those in the Meetup community who might be interested in taking over N2S. Have you moved to Salem recently or just want to explore and meet new people? Do you know anyone who is new to the city and looking for things to do? Are you looking for an easy way to make friends and explore your new home? Then come join us in the New to Salem MeetUp! We’re here to discover more about our city and meet new people who are just as eager as you to enjoy everything Salem has to offer.
We know it can be challenging to fit into a new place, so whether you recently arrived or are just looking for new things to do here, this is the group for you. Like you, we’re really looking forward to hearing stories and having fun with fellow Salem newbies.
There are currently no longer dues for this group.
• We do ask that you submit a photo of yourself so that the host knows who to look for when you attend events.
The goals for the group are:
1. To form a good bunch of friendly people who avoid making "inner circles" or exclusive cliques within the group and always welcome new people. We were all new once!
2. Varied and fun events as regularly as possible. Feel free to suggest some that you are interested in hosting.
3. An easy, stress free way to mingle and make new friends and new memories.
Thanks and we look forward to seeing you at an event.
