Welcome to Newcomers of Northwest Hillsborough for the year 2015-2016. You will soon find that we are a creative, energetic and fun-loving group of women. By joining us you will have opportunities to learn, sample, discover, discuss and simply enjoy. We hope you will take the opportunity to participate in the myriad of activities designed to help you get to know your community but more importantly to help you get to know each other.
“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word,
a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring,
all of which have the potential to turn a life around."
NEWCOMERS OF NORTHWEST HILLSBOROUGH
"May love and laughter light your days, and warm your heart and home. May good and faithful friends be yours where ever you may roam"

Annual Holiday Gala
Executive Board 2015-2016
Do you hear the sleigh bells ringing? Have you seen the holiday commercials already? It is hard to believe but it is that time of year when, not only the humidity and temps drop to signal the Holidays are coming, but the annual GAD-ABOUTS pilgrimage to The Barn is made! If you are looking for holiday gifts, decorations, an antique piece or just love a fun day out with your Newcomers friends, please join the GADS ladies on November 17th. The GADS co-chairmen have a fun line up of wonderful adventures for GADS coming up that I am sure you will enjoy. The October tour of the Straz Performing Arts Center with lunch following at L’Eden was a huge hit! Pictures from the Straz Tour can be seen in the Photo Gallery. Scroll over to your right and click on Photo Gallery to see this fun activity and others from our club!
It is also the time of year when those less fortunate are in extra need. The Community Service committee is accepting donations for our charity, the Academy Prep Center. This is a non-profit middle school in Ybor for underprivileged children in grades 5-8. There are 120 children that attend the school, 6 days a week, for 11 months per year, at no charge. There will be a “spare change” basket on the reception table at each luncheon to collect donations for the Center. In addition to the monthly basket donations, please consider a holiday
donation of a gift card. We hope to have enough cards for each of the 120 children. At the November luncheon a representative from Academy Prep will be our speaker and the donations will be presented at that time. We can take pride in contributing to the children of our community in need and rewarding their hard work.
Lastly, a little bit of business…… I would like to remind all members to be aware that you may have new contacts from Newcomers that will be sending you emails and evites. This is how we communicate as a 150+ group. Please check your spam folder regularly so that you don’t miss anything. We don’t want you to miss out on an important message being sent or fun activity being planned!
In closing, I wish you and your loved ones a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration and safe travels to all.
