What we're about
Looking for something new? New friends…New places to go…New things to do…New adventures? Then “Newcomers and Friends of San Gabriel Valley” is what you are looking for!
We welcome women who are looking for something new, maybe experiencing a lifestyle change, who are new to the area or have been in San Gabriel Valley for years. Someone that wants to connect with others, meet new friends, learn more about the area where they live, through fun and enjoyable activities.
We meet ten out of twelve months a year taking July and August off. Our monthly general meetings called “Coffees” are held on the first Wednesday of the month at 10:00 AM at the Church of the Good Shepherd, Jordan Hall in Arcadia. At the Coffees, members socialize, enjoy refreshments, and discuss the activities and exciting events the club has planned for the next couple months.
We are a very active group and you can get involved as much or as little as you wish. Some of our regular activities are luncheons, tours, going to movies, all sorts of games, book club, golfing, wine tasting, crafts, gardening and the list goes on. We have many activity groups that provide our members with an opportunity to meet people with common interests in a smaller group setting
Newcomers and Friends of SGV currently have approximately 135 members.
Please note: We do not conduct our business through this Meet-Up group. So, you will not see all our activities and events listed on this site. We use Meet-Up as a recruiting tool to welcome prospective new members. So, once you become a member of this group, we suggest you come to one of our “Coffees” and see if you would like to become a member of our club. You will be allowed to remain in the Meet-Up for a total of three months without attending one of the club activities or becoming an official member of Newcomers and Friends of San Gabriel Valley. After the three months, if you haven’t attended a Coffee or any other activity, you will be dropped from this meet-up group. Non-club members are allowed to attend up to two club activities before becoming a member.
We hope you will join us for one of our next “Coffees” and we look forward to meeting you soon.
