You don't have to be new to the Cape to be a Nauset Newcomer! 

Nauset Newcomers was founded in 1977 to provide new residents with opportunities to meet people through social events, educational programs and activities. Today, our 1,300 members include newcomers, lifelong  or part-time residents, couples and singles, recently retired, divorced or widowed - anyone looking to join activities and make new friends! Our year runs September through May, although some activities continue to meet through the summer. Our members are primarily from Brewster, Eastham, Orleans, Truro and Wellfleet, but include residents from all towns on the Cape. Anyone who calls the Cape home is welcome to become a member!

Nauset Newcomers:

  • Provides residents with opportunities to meet new people and have fun
  • Holds monthly programs and facilitates a wide variety of activities and social events from kayaking and card groups to dances & dinners!
  • Offers members information about Cape Cod, its history, activities, services, and recreational areas

  • Supports our community through volunteerism, education, and financial contributions

Attend a Monthly Meeting!

Nauset Newcomers meet from September through May, on the second Wednesday of each month* at 8:30 - 11:00 am at the Wellfleet Cinemas. Our meetings are free and open to the public, so join us to experience Nauset Newcomers for yourself! You'll enjoy a social hour, meet some great people, and hear an informative or entertaining presentation following a short business meeting. 

Bring a friend, spouse, neighbor, or significant other!


We are an all-volunteer, nonprofit 501(c)(7) organization. Members approve a slate of new Officers each year at the May meeting, with the prior year's Vice President assuming the role of President. A new Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer are also approved and a slate of members are appointed to support the activities of the nine committees that ensure the club's operations. Member Meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month at the Wellfleet Cinema, 8:30-11:00 am and include a short business meeting led by the President followed by an informative presentation or entertainment. A transitional meeting takes place in June to ensure smooth operation of the organization.

In addition to Officers, there are nine committees that do the planning and 'behind the scenes' work of the organization - from fundraising to publicity, planning events and providing technical support. Volunteers are solicited each spring, and members are encouraged to participate in these Committees.
