Welcome to the SJKV Newcomers' Club!

Life is better with friends! Are you new in town?  Are you a newcomer to the Saint John area?  Are you looking to meet new people and find interesting things to do? Saint John Kennebecasis Valley (SJKV) Newcomers' Club is for women of all ages who have moved to the Saint John and Kennebecasis Valley area in the past 3 years. We are a local chapter of a National and International organization that has brought together women from all over the world. We have a small annual fee of $30.00 for general membership or $15.00 for alumni (after three years membership). We meet for coffee, lunch, bridge, book club, and various other events. Come and meet other women who are new to the Saint John area. Get in touch with us at

Coffee Socials

Join the SJKV Newcomers' club for our fabulous coffee socials! We get together on the first Friday of the month at the home of a club member, so take a look at our activity calendar to see when we are meeting next. Our coffee socials are a non-intimidating way to introduce yourself to other new women in the area. Please come and enjoy some laughs, coffee and snacks with other women in your area in a casual atmosphere. We would love to meet you! If you would like to join our club e-mail us at

Bridge Group

The SJKV Newcomers' Club Bridge Group meets every Tuesday afternoon at 1:00PM for fun and friendly games. We play with whatever number shows up and usually have two tables. We welcome anyone who wants to learn the game! If you would like to join our club e-mail us at

Ladies Who Lunch

The SJKV Newcomers' Club "Ladies Who Lunch" is a great way to meet other women and have lunch at fabulous restaurants in the area. We get together on the third Friday of each month. Invitations are sent early in the month and a reminder is sent two days before to confirm the reservation. Some of the places we have lunched at include Shadow Lawn, Bourbon Quarter, Thandi's, The Opera Bistro, Alley Gria and Lily Lake Cafe.  View our activity calendar for our meeting dates. If you would like to join our club e-mail us at

Book Club

Everyone is welcome to join the SJKV Newcomers' Book Club! Our book club gives you the opportunity to read new books, hear different opinions, create social ties and try different food and wine! Each month we will read a new book that has been selected by a member and that member will host and provide refreshments to the group. The host will also be responsible to provide a list of questions about the book to be presented to the group for discussion. It's okay if you can't make it to all of the meetings! All you need to do is read the book for the month you can come and let the host know you will be attending after the reminder e-mail has been sent.  And even if you haven't read the book, be sure to come along to participate in the spirited discussion!  View our activity calendar or the blog's sidebar for our monthly book selections. If you would like to join our club, or get more information on meeting dates and locations, e-mail us at
