of Josephine County, Oregon
Welcome to Newcomers smart-phone friendly website!
Western Welcome Newcomers is an Oregon non-profit corporation comprised of Grants Pass residents who live within a 15 mile radius of the Grants Pass Post Office or live in Josephine County and wish to meet other residents who share common interests. Membership in the organization is $15.00 per person, for one year. Membership is payable on June 1, every year, and may be prorated depending on the date joined. The organization sponsors many different social events, which offer a variety of interests.
The group meets for a general meeting on the last Thursday of every month (except December). There is a speaker or other entertainment for about an hour, after which lunch is served. Afterwards there is a general business meeting where upcoming events are discussed. RESERVATIONS are REQUIRED for the luncheon and must be made on or before the Saturday before the meeting. To determine the price and location, please call the Reservations person listed in the [About][Contact] page. There is a nominal fee if you wish to attend the luncheon and just have coffee and/or tea without the buffet. The cost of lunch or beverage is payable at the luncheon.
Meetings begin at 10:30 am, but it is best to get there about one half hour early to register, find a seat, and to socialize. One of the best ways to meet people and friends in this community is to become involved in Western Welcome Newcomers.
