Rye Newcomers and Neighbors Club

Summer message: New leaders & Save 9/22 for BBQ!

We hope you are enjoying your summer so far!   We are reflecting on the Club’s busy year and excited to announce leadership changes.

First, we’d like to thank Susan Watson for her tireless and dedicated years as co-President.  Susan was a thoughtful leader dedicated to the success of the club. She will still stay involved with our very-popular book club. We welcome Dorothy Pohlman as our new co-President! We’re thrilled she’s taking on this role.

Secondly, we thank Jane Johnson for the many years she has been our Treasurer. She has stayed on top of our budget to ensure success. She is passing on the role over to one of our new members, Johanna Nilsson. We appreciate her taking on this role while still being a newcomer!

The club hosted several events this year, including wine tastings, lunches, coffee playdates, family beach day and our welcome BBQ. We introduced the Rambler’s Walking Group, a well-attended Men’s Happy Hour and 2 Ladies’ Dinners.

Thanks to those of you who completed our survey. We heard you!

  • You’d like more evening and weekend events for working parents.
  • We need to find ways to help you meet and be involved outside of “events”.

We will focus on finding ways to make that happen next year.

We wish you a fun, adventurous, relaxing and joyful summer. Save the date for our Fall Welcome BBQ on Sunday, September 22nd.  And find us on Facebook and Instagram. It’s one the best ways to find out what’s happening around town.
