Newcomers Club Celebrates The Season

J6NR(2)On Thursday, December 15, the Newcomers Club of Rumson, Fair Haven, Little Silver, and Shrewsbury hosted their second Newbie Night Happy Hour in celebration of the holidays. The club was looking for more opportunities for its members to get together in a casual setting and meet other members, so when Fair Haven newcomer Jamie Sztoser moved to town, she volunteered to get it going. More than 35 people attended from all over the peninsula to celebrate the holiday season at Tommy’s Tavern & Tap and toast the upcoming new year with friends and neighbors.

The next Newbie Night will be held on Thursday, January 19 in the private party room at Urban Coal House/Frame to Please in the Galleria in Red Bank. Guests will have the opportunity to drink and mingle while also visiting a showcase from the artists of Shore House, this year’s chosen charity for the Newcomers. Shore House, based in Long Branch, is dedicated to providing resources to people with mental illness so they may have a fulfilling life, with access to employment, education, housing, and health care.

Earlier in the month, on December 4, the club held their merry Santa Brunch at the Rumson Country Club Main Dining Room to benefit Shore House. And on December 8, the group gathered for some creative Wreath Decorating with Craig Kiely and Darren Murphy at their floral shop on Mechanic Street in Red Bank.
