A Letter from the President

Dear all Members, 

We welcome Spring 2024 with warmer temperatures, longer days, and the return of some of our CHNC snowbirds.  The Club is happy to welcome them back to our “Elbow Land”.

Your Chatham-Harwich Newcomers Club has had a busy winter season, and we look forward to a tremendous year ahead.

In January the Club hosted the Hunker in the Bunker event at the Brewster VFW Hall. Our members brought a shared dish, the music was provided by Scott Rosenthal from Cape Tunes and our members also provided fun and comradery.

The Women’s Gourmet group had a Soup and Salad Luncheon during the second and third weeks in January.  There were three groups who met in members’ homes and shared the lunch menu and conversations, they then hosted an educational and tasty day starting with a stop at the Fisherman’s Alliance in Chatham for a tour and expert presentation about the needs and successes of the local fishing industry. The group then continued to Mac’s Chatham Fish and Lobster where more than 25 woman enjoyed local delicious lunches.   They then hosted a special tour of the Cape Cod Museum of Art in Dennis on March 21 with lunch following the tour at the Scargo Café.  Their next event will be on April 23, a Tour of Old Cape Cod starting with a talk and ending with a meal at the Dolphin Restaurant in Barnstable.

The Morning Glories Activity Group had breakfast on January 30 at Seven Days Restaurant in Dennis Village. The breakfast was enjoyed by over 35 members, and then they put on a get together at Piccadilly’s Café and Deli in South Yarmouth on February 21 with 35 members. Their next breakfast event will be held at Jack’s Outback in Yarmouth on April 17.

The Club enjoyed a visit and tour starting at The Family Pantry and then on to The Second Glance Thrift Boutique on February 28. We learned about the well-organized operation that provides food assistance to our neighbors throughout our region. At the Second Glance Thrift Boutique we saw where donations arrived, cleaned, priced and displayed for sale to provide a huge financial support to The Food Pantry.
