Palm Harbor Newcomers Club was organized February, 1981. It is a social club which welcomes members from all of the Tampa Bay area. The members are both newcomers and residents who have resided in the area for many years.
The primary objective is to create new friendships and to invite the new and old residents to participate in our many activities.
We have 360 members as of December, 2012.
Our luncheons feature a short business meeting followed by lunch and featured entertainment. Jewelry sales, book sales and a "Pot of Gold" raffle for prizes and gift certificates furnished by area merchants are also standard luncheon activities.
Our members enjoy many special events such as special excursions to Tampa Bay Downs, Tampa Bay Performing Arts, Ruth Eckerd Hall, MT. Dora and Seminole Hard Rock Casino. There is always a holiday gala, and a cookie exchange in December.
In "Things to Do" on this site, you will find many clubs, games and special interest groups within the club.
The news letter, The Chatterbox, is published and mailed or e-mailed (or both) to every member each month.
While primarily social in nature, Palm Harbor Newcomers Club does give back to the community. At the end of the club's fiscal year, available funds are donated to various local charities. Other donations are made in the name of Palm Harbor Newcomers Club throughout the year through the generosity of members. For example, members have contributed cash to hurricane relief efforts, donated backpacks filled with school supplies for needy children, and gifted Ronald McDonald House with decorated Easter baskets. Every November the club has created and contributed a tree to The Festival of Trees in Clearwater. The proceeds benefit mentally challenged individuals from the area.
