Ladysmith Newcomers Club welcomes new members to join

Their goal is to introduce newcomers to service clubs, restaraunts, and amenities in the area

The Ladysmith Newcomers Club, (LNC) is looking for seniors who are new to the Ladysmith area to join their club.

The LNC’s goal is to introduce newcomers to locals, service clubs, restaurants, and amenities in the area that they may not know about. They also function as a social club, and although members join the club as newcomers, they can stay in the club for as long as they live in Ladysmith.

“My wife and I have been with the club for seven years now,” LNC president Bob Taylor said. “We joined the LNC after moving over from the mainland and knew absolutely no-one on the Island whatsoever. So, we joined, and now all of our friends are ones we’ve picked up through the newcomers club.”

Taylor said club membership is almost entirely 55+, and is not ideal for young people.

Every Monday at 10:00 am, the LNC meets at Tim Hortons. There are usually between 12-16 members, and an even balance of genders. The club is flexible in its membership, so those who only want to attend the Tim Hortons meetings every once and awhile without committing to other activities are welcome to do so.

“We do have people who… enjoy being down there, but they’re so busy with other clubs here that they’ve stretched themselves a bit too thin, and they don’t have time for our activities. And that’s fine, we see them every once in a while,” Taylor said.
