Activities

Our ladies have a variety of interests and are proud to offer a wide selection of activities.  The groups are fluid and new members are always welcome.  The best way to bloom where you’re planted is to jump right in!  We look forward to meeting you!

Benefit Beat

We give back to the community while spending time with a great group of women!  We meet each month to volunteer at a different organization around the Cleveland Metro Area.  We generally meet on the fourth Thursday of each month. Come often or once in a while, you are always welcome!

Book Club

We’re a fun and lively group that meets monthly at various locations. Come socialize and discuss our latest read and, if you have time, join us for lunch at a nearby restaurant.

Bunko

Bunko is a dice game that does not require a lot of skill, but always provides lots of laughs. Join us on the second Tuesday of each month at a member’s home.

Canasta

Welcome to Canasta with the New Clevelanders! We would love to have anyone join us on the third Thursday of each month. No experience is required! We meet for coffee at 9:30 AM and play begins at 10:00 AM.

Club Gastronomique

Gastronomy is the study of the relationship between food and culture, the art of preparing and serving appetizing food, a style of cooking for a particular region, and the science of good eating.

If you like to bake, cook, eat, or talk about food, consider us! We mix together food, friendship, cooking, eating, and the sharing of recipes to create something pretty special! We meet in small groups, once per month and share a meal that has been created around an ever changing theme. All experience levels are welcome and we will work hard to place you in a group that seems to fit your particular interests.

Excursions

Once a month, venture out with the New Clevelander ladies as we explore interesting places throughout the Cleveland area. We will visit museums, markets, historical sites—all of the places that you will want to take your family and friends when they come to visit. Learn how to navigate the city while enjoying the company of new friends, and before you know it, Cleveland will seem more like home!

Food & Wine Society

Join us to learn about the wines of the world!  Food & Wine Society is a great casual and hands-on activity in which spouses can participate and doesn’t require any wine knowledge or expertise. We will talk with sommeliers, pick a wine region to study, visit wineries, and individually host wine tastings of different wine types, regions, or vintages.

Golf

Our golf group is in full swing in the spring, summer and fall. Usually, the season begins with some lessons for those interested. We play nine holes on Wednesday mornings at Gleneagles Golf Course in Twinsburg. Don’t worry, all skill levels welcome!

Knitting

Have you always wanted to learn to knit? Are you an experienced knitter looking for a fun knitting circle? All skill levels are welcome to join us in this creative pastime.

Ladies Mixer

Do you like to get together with other women in a casual setting over good food and beverages? We are a fun group of women who meet at area restaurants for happy hour and/or dinner.

Lunch Bunch

This is an easy way to join in our fun! We will meet up after the New Members’ Coffee at a pre-determined spot. We go to restaurants near our morning coffee that are reasonably priced. Everyone chooses off the menu and we go Dutch. You can look forward to lots of lively conversation and making new friends.

Mah Jongg

Mah Jongg is a Chinese tile game of skill, strategy, and calculation along with a certain amount of luck. It’s easy to learn and yet challenging to the mind. We play from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month taking turns hosting. We usually have a beginners’ table, so don’t be shy! Lessons are scheduled for new players periodically throughout the year. Come on out and see if it’s for you.

Pickleball

Pickleball is a fast-paced paddle game that is played on a court smaller than a tennis court.  It’s a mix of tennis and ping pong and it can be picked up very quickly. Pickleball is one of the fastest growing sports in America. It’s a game for all ages and skill levels.  Give it a try! 

Travel Talk

Paris, Rome, London! Grand Canyon, New Orleans, Nashville! Are you thinking of planning a trip? Have you just returned from a great vacation? Come join us as we discuss traveling. Share your travel experiences with the group. Learn what’s happening near home in Cleveland. We meet the third Friday of each month and go to lunch afterwards.

Walking Club

Time to get moving! We gather for local walks at a moderate walking pace – the 1st and 4th Tuesdays of the month.
