Welcome to our website, Iím so glad you found us. Westside Newcomers
Club (WNC) was started 22 years ago by four ladies and has
evolved to over 500 members. If you are like most of us that
moved to Las Vegas with little or no family or friends to
greet us, you are in the right place.
We are a well organized Club with a common goal, to provide a safe,
interesting and fun venue where we can make new BFFs. We are also a non-profit,
non-political and non-philanthropic organization.
Check out our calendar
of events and the
Interest Groups. You will be amazed at the number of
activities that take place every month. And every time you
participate in a new activity you will meet a whole new
group of ladies and your circle of friends will grow. We
also encourage our members to think about whether they have
a special skill or talent they would like to share as an
activity. Thatís how our calendar keeps growing.
Our members come from all walks of life with different stories to tell.
Itís a strange phenomenon that once you participate in one
activity and then another, your life takes on a whole new
meaning. You might realize that, now itís your turn to enjoy
and experience something youíve always wanted to do.
There is a General Meeting
followed by a luncheon and program once a month, at
different venues each month. Because the attendance is
usually higher than most restaurants can accommodate due to
the programs (authors, celebs, local officials, etc.) many
are held in the ballrooms of our beautiful casinos.
If you are interested in hearing first-hand about our club and meeting
some of our board members, plan on attending our
New Member Coffee.
It's held on the first Wednesday of every month, at 9:15 a.m., at the
Grace in the Desert Episcopal Church, in the community room
at 2022 Spring Gate Lane, Las Vegas, 89134. You wonít be
As a member, you will receive a newsletter every month that reflects the
current monthís activities. To participate in any activity,
you need only to pick up the phone and make a reservation.
And if you wish to become involved in the operation of WNC,
we always welcome another pair of hands, new visions and
innovative thinking. You'll find an
application on our "Meetings"
My personal motto is, enjoy the journey, you have nothing to lose and
everything to gain.
