NNC FOLLOWS ALL PRESCRIBED PROVINCIAL HEALTH MEASURES AGAINST COVID-19.
Our members are interested in all KINDS of activities, as you can see! The list below represents just a few of the fun things we do. We have over 35 regular monthly activities to choose from as well as special events every month. During this pandemic we have had to revise our activities’ delivery methods in order to comply with prescribed provincial health measures against COVID-19. Chances are you will always find something to sign up for. Membership in Nanaimo Newcomers’ Club definitely has its rewards!
Currently book clubs meet online. Our members appear to love book club, as we already have three groups. We encourage members to initiate new clubs as groups fill up!
During the pandemic we play Canasta online from the safety of our own homes. Play with a partner and socialize at the same time!
When it is once again safe to do so, this event will be scheduled once a month and hosted by a member. Members can often bring their partners (the hostess will determine if the event is "ladies only" or "partners welcome"). Members are invited to bring an appetizer of their choice to share, and to bring whatever they would like to drink. The hostess will supply tea and coffee. This is a really nice way to get to know each other in a more intimate setting.
It's like a book club but for movies! Members watch a movie together on Zoom then meet to discuss. Grab the popcorn and settle in the comfort of your own home and join in the fun.
Remember, you just moved to the West Coast, which is chock full of fabulous little islands to discover and explore. When it is safe to do so again, this group will resume day trips to the countless gems that grace the Georgia Strait.
Meet online and flex your mental muscles and share in this great game with some new friends!
When the pandemic ends and it is safe to meet with new-found friends , there will be no better way to celebrate than with happy hour!
Tuesday waterfront walks and Thursday hikes on local trails - chat and walk and perhaps join new friends for coffee after.
Knit Wits 1 is full and we need a new coordinator to lead a second group. Spend quality time with like-minded crafters by joining an enthusiastic group of stitchers! They meet once a month currently online and while they click away at a project, the conversations flow.
Bring your racquet and a ball and join the drop in Wednesday morning games.
