In 1994, new to the area, Barbara Burrows placed an ad in the local paper inviting other newcomers to her home for coffee – thus began the organization that became New Neighbors of Gig Harbor. Over 25 years later, the organization has over 700 members who participate in their choice of over 60 activity groups including a variety of art groups, book clubs, hiking, biking, dining, cards and games, men’s groups, and regional outings. All of these groups are led by member volunteers and new groups are formed with Board approval when 10 or more members have an interest that isn't currently covered by one of our groups. We hold monthly Membership Business Luncheons with fabulous speakers covering a wide array of topics. In keeping with the tradition of Barbara's initial gathering, New Neighbors hosts a new and prospective member coffee in a current member home or a local coffee shop each month. To accommodate diverse schedule demands, we hold evening gatherings from time to time.
Whether you are new in town or just looking for new friends and activities, come join us - we are your neighbors!
