Second Vie-President Mary Alice Elm said that the club was formed in 1978 by Norma Mohr, Elouise Hancock, Michael Davis, Marge Storey, Doris Cummings and Wilma Klick. It now has 119 members, with 30 joining in the last year.
The club has three objectives, said outgoing President Dee Landis. The first is to establish connections and make friends. The second is to take an active interest in the civic, social and moral welfare of the community. The third is to aid the community is to contribute to the community’s charitable humanitarian and social welfare by donating to worthy causes.
Landis said the Newcomers donate to many different causes in Trigg and Lyon counties. They have a scholarship fund, they give money to the Sheriff’s Ranch, the Take Kids Fishing Day and give Christmas gifts to foster children, among others. Incoming President Sally Gust said the Newcomers try to make a donation to Helping Hands every month.
