Newcomers Club
Recently moved to Ford’s Colony? Looking to meet people? If the answer to those two questions is yes, Newcomers is the place for you.
We welcome you to Ford’s Colony and invite you to join our social club of more than 450 members, established in 1996. It was created to introduce newcomers to Ford’s Colony, meet new friends, and learn about the Williamsburg area together.
Our monthly Nights Out begin with an opportunity to meet, chat, and enjoy delicious snacks. Sign up for our mini-clubs and engage with interesting speakers on a variety of topics. Our social year is September to June and most mini-clubs meet year-round, so there are plenty of opportunities to get involved and grow your circle of friends.
New residents of Ford’s Colony are eligible for membership in the Newcomers Club for three years at a cost of $30 per person. An optional 4th year is available at a cost of $10 per person.
  • Join us for one of our Newcomers Nights Out and our parties.
    • Our Nights Out are the third Friday of every month, at Swim and Tennis (S&T), from September through May. After the program, many of us head to Murdoch’s at Ford’s Colony Country Club to socialize some more over “small bite" specials. Night Out Presentations
    • Save the Date for our Winter Holiday Dance on December 2 and our Summer Social on June 2.  If our past social events are anything to go by, each will be a blast and you will not want to miss it.
  • Interested in meeting other newcomers in a small, informal group?

Who We Are
Programs and Parties
The Program Committee schedules informative and interesting programs to help newcomers become familiar with some of the many attractions, resources, and opportunities available to them in the Greater Williamsburg area. We’ve had speakers from Colonial Williamsburg, the Williamsburg Symphony, Busch Gardens, and a local brewery, to name just a few of the many terrific guest speakers who have joined us.
Each year the Newcomers Club hosts two special parties at Ford’s Colony Country Club. (You do not need to be a member of the club to attend.) In December, we celebrate the holidays with a festive holiday dinner dance. In June, we welcome summer with a wonderful buffet dinner. Both parties begin with a social hour followed by dinner and dancing to our favorite DJ. Plan to come and enjoy the fun with new friends.
