“New friends, brand new experiences, a place to try new activities that I wouldn’t have thought to try.  This is a small list of things that the Calgary Newcomers Club mean to me. I’ve been a member of the Calgary Newcomers club for just over a year now.  Moving to Calgary was very challenging for me, having to leave a whole network of friends behind.  Joining this group and meeting new people has given me a sense of belonging and a new way of life.  It has been my lifeline.”   Debbie

“It’s hard to believe that we moved to Calgary almost 5 years ago.  Maybe it has gone by quickly because of the experiences I have had through Newcomers.  I decided to try new things when I joined: hiking, mahjongg, volunteering on the executive, snowshoeing, pub night and the list goes on.  Through all this, I have also  met people from many places with diverse interests and that’s what makes Newcomers’ special. Yes, some of those friends have moved back to their home countries but, there are now new places to think about visiting.  My advice-get involved to get the most out of it!”   Marion
