The nonprofit organization offers an array of activities including hiking, bicycling, bridge games, luncheons and theater outings, to name a few.
Still, the name "Newcomer's Club" is used liberally, because the membership includes new residents, longtime residents who have just retired and others that joined a few years ago, said co-presidents Marlene Barber and Marlene Peacock.
"Some members have been members for four or five years," Barber said during last month's coffee meeting. "They continue to come because they like all the different things that can be done and they've made a set of friends."
"There are others who are new to the club, but may have lived here for 10 to 12 years and are newly retired and finally have time to join," Peacock said.
The club hosts a monthly coffee social that lasts about 1½ hours at Park City Community Church, 4501 S.R. 224, where new members are introduced.
This month's social will be Wednesday, Aug.13.
"We pass a microphone around and have them stand up to tell us who they are," Barber said. "We have members from all over — California, Massachusetts, Florida and New York."
After the introductions, the club members run through a list of public service announcements that include volunteer opportunities, fundraisers and other news.
Following the PSAs, the different activity chairs stand up and tell what they will be doing during the month.
"We have more than 20 activities we participate in and each of those activities has someone in charge," Peacock said. "Sometimes the activity calls for two chairs."
The activities are for both men and women.
"We are continually adding new activity groups," Peacock said. "Just recently, we added an advanced-hiking group."
"Since we want to add more men to the club, activities like that are more attractive to them," Barber said. "One of our goals is to not only attract new members, but also enhance the experiences for our current members."
Memberships are $35 a year and that includes a spouse or significant other, but not pets, Peacock said.
"People can come to three different functions to see if this is something they really want to do and then they'll have the opportunity to buy a membership or decide they don't want to join," she explained.
The highlight of the monthly coffee social is the guest speaker.
In the past, the Newcomer's Club of Greater Park City has welcomed Egyptian Theatre manager Randy Barton and Dee Dee Corradini, president of Women's Ski Jumping USA.
Last month's speaker was Park City Performing Arts Foundation Executive Director Teri Orr and the speakers on Wednesday, Aug. 14, will be Fred Thomas, president of Midway Boosters, and Lynn Remund, of the 2013 Swiss Days in Midway.
"We have a goal to ask someone who is known and has made an impact in the community," Barber said. "Our monthly speakers are people we think our members would be interested in and learn something from."
"We have a policy that we do not approach people who are part of a commercial enterprise," Peacock said. "We concentrate on nonprofits and allow our membership to get to know them."
The Newcomer's Club of Greater Park City has enhanced both Barber's and Peacock's lives.
"When I first moved here four years ago, I didn't know that many people and I had been busy and active in my work life and concerned what I was going to do," Barber said. "A friend of mine insisted I come to Newcomers and I did."
Barber joined the book club activity and saw that it was a great way to meet people.
"I have made lifetime friends and it's been very good for me," she said.
Peacock has a similar story.
"When my husband and I moved here full-time in 2010, I knew very few people," she said. "But I knew when I retired four years earlier, the first thing on the top of my list was to do some volunteer work.
"So I saw Newcomers had a dual role for me," Peacock said. "It was not just to meet new people, but also a way for me to volunteer."
During her first meeting, she signed up for the hospitality committee and took over the Lunch and Leisure activity from Barber.
"We both became vice presidents of the club and now we're co-presidents," Peacock said.
Parkite Pam Newsome has been a Newcomer's Club member for five years.
"We came out here for a brief six-month adventure and it was the club that got me grounded," she said with a laugh. "A person I got to know said I needed to come to Newcomers. I went and it gave me an opportunity to get to know the town, meet the people and go on adventures.
"Ever since, these people have become my friends, and it still teaches me things about Park City that I need and want to know," Newsome said.
The Park City Newcomer's Club will meet on Wednesday, Aug. 14, at Park City Community Church, 4501 S.R. 224, from 10 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. Fred Thomas, president of Midway Boosters, and Lynn Remund, of the 2013 Swiss Days in Midway, will be the speakers. Lunch will follow at Good Thymes, 1456 New Park Blvd., immediately following the meeting. For more information about joining the club, visit www.parkcitynewcomers.org.
