Tampa Bay Newcomers was founded in 1950 to extend the hand of friendship for women who want to make new friends.  The club is both a social and community service organization. Monthly luncheons are held throughout the Tampa Bay area and feature local speakers.

About Us 


The theme of Tampa Bay Newcomers is,       “Bloom Where You Are Planted.”  

The logo is a heart formed by an extended hand of friendship.  The variety of flowers represent all of our members, each having a different name, each native to another place, but all gathered to form our club. The extended hand of friendship placing a new flower into the heart shows there is always room for one more member. The heart represents the feelings of warm personal attachment that develop among our members.

The Mission of this Club shall be to promote friendliness, provide venues for social interaction with other newcomers to the area as well as established residents, and to work for the good of the community by contributing to community services.
