Newcomers packed the Hideaway Beach Club Banquet Hall for their monthly luncheon. The ladies welcomed several prospective and six new members to the club. President Donna Dubey thanked the Newcomers for their continued involvement in participating in the Christmas Island Style Street Parade. She delightfully announced that Newcomers had once again received an award for their participation. For 2018, Newcomers were awarded most original. She presented the award to Laura Geberth in thanks and recognition for her volunteer efforts.

Newcomers welcomed six new members at their January luncheon. From left, Valerie Schmitt, Lisa Raymer, Doreen Herriman, Monna Hormel, Karen Arili, Peggy Dahlquist, Debbie Kelly and Camilla Sawick.

Following a delicious lunch, the ladies were taken on a trip to faraway lands as Ken and Lil Bardon gave an in-depth presentation of their experiences sailing around the world on the Moonbeam. The ladies peppered the Bardons with questions following the presentation.
