Biking, skiing, hiking and dancing are just some of the activities the area has to offer and one of the ways to take advantage of them is through the Newcomers Club of Greater Park City.
The non-denominational club, which also offers bridge, dining and mah-jongg, hosts monthly coffee meetings at Park City Community Church and allows people to sign up for various activities and hear a guest speaker.
It also hosts a yearly luncheon that serves as a membership drive, and also gives the community an idea of what it's all about, said Marlene Peacock, who is the club's co-president with Marlene Barber.
This year's luncheon will be held at Deer Valley's Snow Park Lodge on Sept. 11.
The event will feature a keynote speech by Emmy Award-winning KSL TV news anchorwoman Nadine Wimmer.
"We'll also have a new-member signup sheet so people can attend the luncheon and join the club at the same time," Peacock said during an interview with The Park Record. "We're very excited this year because Nadine will be our speaker, and she is not just an anchorwoman, but an accomplished journalist who lives in Deer Valley."
Wimmer won her Emmy for her "Staying Safe" series that was designed to help parents protect families from danger and injuries, Peacock said.
"We're happy to have her and are looking forward to hearing about how she balances her career and her family," she said. "We batted around a few names and Nadine's came up a few times.
In addition to Wimmer, the luncheon will spotlight the various activities offered by the Newcomers Club.
"Prior to the luncheon, Deer Valley provides us a separate room where all of our activity chair (people) set up booths to highlight their activities," Peacock said. "These outings can be hiking, bowling, biking to ballroom dancing, bridge and gardening, to name a few."
The club currently has 16 standing activity chair people.
"They go to great lengths to create cute and imaginative displays that gives people who come to the luncheon an idea of what we offer," Peacock said. "There will be activity signup sheets at each of the booths as well."
Peacock said another purpose for the luncheon is to show appreciation to club members.
"We want to have a great luncheon and that's why we are at Snow Park," she said. "We also want to present great speakers."
