The Vancouver Newcomers Club meets formally on the first Tuesday of each month for a dinner meeting. Also, we arrange and provide a wide range of VNC activities and special events for our members including movies, book clubs, Vancouver dining, wine-tasting, golf, hiking, golf, yoga, knitting theatre and so much more.
Non-members may attend two meetings/activities as a registered guest.
Our monthly activities include:
Held once or twice a month on Fridays usually from 3:00 to 6:00 pm. We try different lounges, restaurants and wine bars throughout the downtown area. A fun way to end the week and begin the weekend.
The French Café provides an opportunity to practice our French, no matter whether fluent or not! Join us for interesting conversation in French at a local restaurant or lounge, usually over a glass of wine.
Join us for good food, good wine and great company! We gather one evening each month to enjoy a variety of foods and wine, usually at the home of a volunteer hostess. These occasions are a great opportunity to chat with new friends while educating our palates.
Dining Divas are fabulous women who go out for a nice meal, once a month at a restaurant of our choice. We’ve been trying different foods and have included theatre and dancing in our mix. Enjoy good food and great conversation and a lot of fun!
Evening “Cook N Book” Club
Join other members with a similar interest in reading as well as all things food. This book club will feature topics that touch on food and cooking. We will read not only books, but also blogs and watch a movie.
Euchre is a card game that is played internationally, and it is much easier to learn than Bridge! Come out and join the group to learn or help the rookies learn. Socializing, eating and playing cards–give it a try!
From time to time we offer and organize opportunities for members to participate in special events and socializing. Some of the special events we have enjoyed:
New activities and events are often added to our roster. Also, we often have special events, such as attending performances together, weekend trips and special celebrations.
Once you become a member of VNC you will receive additional information and have access to our monthly calendar showing all newcomers activities and events for the month. You will receive emails and have the opportunity to sign up each month for the activities or events you wish to attend.
If you are interested in participating in one of our activities, which is a great way to meet some of our members, please send us an email for more information.
