St. Charles, Geneva, Batavia, Elgin IL
and neighboring communities
The Fox Valley Newcomers and Neighbors would like to meet you and welcome you to our group!
We are a group of women who have one common goal...to make friends. We are new or not so new to the area. We are retired, getting back into social activities after children go to school or just looking to network. We can help you with the many questions and challenges involved in relocating or just learning more about the area.
We have members with no children, young children, teenagers, college students and empty nesters. We have a variety of interests, but most importantly, we want you to feel connected to a group as well as our community.
We have all been " the new kid on the block" and we really understand the emotional roller coaster moving to a new state or community can be. We know you will find us a friendly and welcoming group.
Club activities include a breakfast club, Girl's Night Out group, three Book groups, Mah Jongg, the Excellent Adventures group, Chick Flicks, Golf Groupies, Monthly Bridge, Quilting, Canasta, the Spare Time bowling group, a monthly ‘couples and solos’ After Six', and a twice a year social. New activities and interest groups are added frequently by our members.
Our members reside in the areas around the Fox Valley, including Aurora, Batavia, Bartlett, Bloomingdale, Campton Hills, Elburn, Elgin, Geneva, Lake in the Hills, Lily Lake, North Aurora, Plainfield, Rockford, St. Charles, South Elgin, Streamwood, Sugar Grove, Sycamore, Wayne, and Winfield.
Our group meets monthly for a luncheon during the months of September through June. Each monthly meeting includes a ‘meet and greet,’ prior to a short general business meeting, a luncheon, and an entertaining and informative program.
Past programs have included: White Elephant raffle, Interior design ideas, mini-fashions shows, information on ‘subliminal communications’ and ‘handwriting analysis,’ wine tastings, holiday organizing and decorating trends, learning how to accessorize with the current ‘fashion’ trends, makeup tips and tricks, learning to organize your clutter, holistic healthcare options, fire safety, and much more. There’s something for everyone.
