Hopkinsville-Christian County Newcomers and Neighbors is inviting potential new members to an openhouse from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 23, at Saint John Methodist Church, 2808 S. Virginia St.
The open house kicks off a new year of programming and events following a summer break.
Established in 1976 as the Newcomers, the group later expanded its definition and purpose to include anyone interested in meeting people and engaging with the community — regardless of whether they are recent transplants to the area.
The club meets monthly at different locations for lunch and a presentation on some topic of interest. In addition, Newcomers and Neighbors also has subgroups — Crafters, the Lunch Bunch, Book Club and Cruising with Friends (for antique auto enthusiasts). Anyone who attends the open house can learn more about this groups.
