I joined the Kalamazoo Area Newcomers Club after moving here from Columbus, Ohio in 2013. I had recently retired from a teaching career in Dublin, OH, when my husband took a new position in Kalamazoo at the Homer Stryker, M. D. School of Medicine. I needed a new group of friends in my new community and I found them at KANC.
Newcomers gave me a link to new friendships through the monthly luncheons, programs, and the Special Interest Groups (SIGs), where I’ve met women with interests similar to mine. The varied programs, luncheon restaurants, and small group activities have helped me learn so much about Kalamazoo and what a diverse, active community it is!
But KANC is not just for women new to the area. No matter if you’ve lived here your whole life, are in a transition period through retirement or loss of a spouse, if you are in need of new friends and experiences, you will find them with us in the Kalamazoo Area Newcomers Club. You are welcome!
I hope you find what you are looking for within our club and that you have a very enjoyable year with us.
