We are the Newcomers Club of Lake Bluff and Lake Forest, a social organization for new residents of our two communities. The Club has been around for more than 60 years, helping families get settled in our communities through friendship and engagement. We welcome you to Lake Forest and Lake Bluff!
Any new resident of Lake Bluff or Lake Forest is welcome to join the club. Members must join within 18 months of moving and can belong to the club for up to five years. We have over 150 families and hope you’ll join us. The Club has numerous activities for members and their families, including monthly luncheons, evening socials for couples, children’s playgroups, tennis, golf, yoga, Pilates, walking and biking groups, cooking classes, wine tastings, and an evening gourmet group to name a few. New to the Chicago area? We organize trips to the city for tours and to catch the latest Broadway show. We also have groups for our international members, and our empty nesters. We are a volunteer organization, meaning that our members are responsible for organizing all of our fabulous activities. Any member, new or established, is welcome to start a new activity anytime. Our offerings continue to grow with our members!
I invite you to learn more about the Club. We have monthly Prospective Member Coffees in our members’ homes where you can meet a few members and learn about Newcomers. Information about the next Coffee can be found on the website. If you are ready to join, you can fill out an online application or print your application and mail it to us. Any inquiries can be sent to us at “The Newcomers Club of LB/LF, PO Box 253, Lake Forest, IL 60045. Or, please feel free to contact me by clicking on “Contact the President” on the Contact Us page of our website. I look forward to hearing from you.
We all know what it’s like moving to a new community. We’re here to help you get settled, make new friends, and have some fun! We hope that your life in Lake Bluff and Lake Forest is filled with many happy memories. We look forward to helping you build those memories!
