"Aging gracefully:  How to attain a long & healthy life."

Carol Penfield M.S., Nurse Practitioner, will be presenting the science behind lifestyle change and how the way you live greatly impacts your health. She will share with you evidence-based approaches to improving your energy level and preventing illness independent of medications and procedures.  Carol will provide helpful tips that have been learned from researching centenarians around the world. 

Carol is a Cape Cod native and received her baccalaureate degree in nursing from Boston College and subsequently graduated summa cum laude with a Master of Science degree from Northeastern University.  She has been a certified adult nurse practitioner by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners since 1994.

She is board certified in Lifestyle Medicine; which is a medical specialty that focuses on behaviors that can improve your health such as nutrition, physical activity, sleep quality and stress reduction and utilizes proven strategies to help you sustain changes.  Carol is also an A.C.E. certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor since 1991.

We hope you like our new logo! We think it's more modern, while paying homage to the original lighthouse logo.  Nauset Newcomers is also in the process of updating its newsletter and website to better reflect the vitality of our organization. You can look forward to continuing improvements in the site, especially in the Group Activity area.  We are planning the launch of a new and easier to use website over the summer of 2019. Thanks to all our volunteers who are working diligently on these projects!

About Our Monthly Meetings

Our monthly meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month, and run September through May.  The meetings are held at the Wellfleet Cinemas on Route 6 and are open to the public.
The meetings begin at 8:30 a.m., with breakfast snacks and coffee, and the brief business meeting begins around 9:40 a.m.  
An educational or entertaining program begins following the business meeting and the raffle (which raises funds to support area non-profits). Programs may be informational, with Cape experts discussing local interests such as boating, wildlife, gardening or history. They may also feature local musical or theatrical groups.  Meetings end about 11:00am.

 Come join us and meet your neighbors!

Support Nauset Regional Middle School: Collect Box Tops

Nauset Newcomers are encouraged to support Box Tops for Education, to benefit the Nauset Regional Middle School.  Found on hundreds of groceries and products, BOX TOPS are little coupons worth 10-cents each and offer an easy way to support our local school.  

Box Tops help to buy things schools need: books, computers, playground equipment and more.  You can learn more about the program at

Look for the collection bin at the table you get your name tag. Each box top is worth a dime to the school.  It's an easy and free way to make a positive impact in our community.
