Who We Are
Whether you’re new to town or a longtime resident, we’ll help you get connected with your community.

Newcomers and Neighbors is a social club that exists to help newcomers feel welcome and help neighbors get to know each other better. We offer a variety of activities every month so you can find your fit. Membership is only $25 a year and open to all Reading residents. Our club is purely volunteer-led and any member can join our leadership team. We also work to serve our community by taking part in neighbors helping neighbors. Some of our past events include murder mystery night, martinis and massages, pumpkin painting, children's concert, paint night, men's poker, game night, yankee swap, gingerbread houses, and more.

  • New to Reading

    About a third of our members are people who have moved to town in the last couple of years, whether from nearby towns or other states.

  • Longtime Residents

    Many of our members have lived in Reading for years, but just want a way to get to know new people and to know their neighbors better.

  • Ladies Night Attenders

    About half our members attend ladies night, while others prefer to connect primarily through book club or couples socials. Most of our actual members are women, who then connect with their families.

  • Families With Young Kids

    Most of our members have children, ranging in age from newborn to young adults. Having kids is not a requirement to participate, even in family fun events.

Regular Events

Every month we offer:
Ladies Night
Get out of the house for some girl time. We may meet for drinks, get massages, taste and swap new recipes, go on a scavenger hunt or more.
Book Club
Books are better with friends. Every month we pick a new book to read (or not) and discuss over drinks and dessert.
Family Fun
Outings for families with kids, such as pumpkin painting, making gingerbread houses, and a trip to a maple sugar farm.
Couples Social
Meet and socialize with other couples. Themed events throughout the year have included wine tasting, game night, and murder mystery night.
