The West Vancouver Newcomers’ Club organises a range of regular activities for its members each month. Each year these vary according to the interests of our members, and will take place during the daytime and evenings to accommodate all lifestyles. We encourage members to get involved and participate in both the enjoyment and organisation of the activities. In addition, there are special activities each month depending on what events are taking place in the West Vancouver or wider area. Our current regular set of monthly activities include:
Bacchus Bunch/Potluck Dinner
Bacchus is an informal Saturday evening wine tasting, held in members’ homes. Each month a different member hosts and chooses a country or type of wine. Usually 4-6 wines are sampled, with the host preparing a brief commentary for each wine. We alternate each month with Potluck Dinners at members’ homes, with food prepared from a different country or region. Partners for this activity are welcome.
Evening Book Club
Book Club is a monthly activity for members interested in reading and getting together to discuss books. The books for discussion are chosen by the book club members and each month a different member hosts the group in her home, and a different book is discussed.
Mocha Mingle is a monthly coffee morning where members can drop in for a cup of coffee and a chat. We host the activity at a different member’s home each time, and it provides an informal and relaxing opportunity to meet and mix with new friends.
Breakfast Club meets for breakfast in a different restaurant each month. Members meet at the restaurant for a breakfast (hearty or dainty) or simply a cup of coffee. It is an opportunity for an informal get together with other members for a chat before getting on with the rest of their day.
Get outside in the great outdoors and enjoy a hike with friends. Our members enjoy discovering the wonderful local hiking trails the North Shore has to offer.
Casual Dinner Out
We are a social club so we enjoy any opportunity to try out local restaurants, or places further afield! Each month a different restaurant is selected. It’s an evening out enjoyed with new friends, and also an opportunity to get to try out different North Shore dining venues.
Fun Lunch is a potluck lunch held in different members’ homes every month. It’s a great social opportunity, sharing both ideas, news and recipes with other members.
Held on the first Friday of the month drop in for some drinks and a bite to eat in the company of Newcomer friends and get the weekend off to a fun start. Partners are welcome.
As a group, our social interests are wide ranging, and there is so much on offer in West Vancouver and beyond for us to explore! Every month we organise a special event such as a theatre evening, movie night, cookery courses, fashion shows, exhibition visits, historical walking tours, snow shoeing, kayaking, – the possibilities are endless!
