Monthly Luncheons

The Sarasota Newcomers Club has a monthly luncheon meeting at various venues around the community.  Our luncheons feature guest speakers who enlighten and entertain us about the arts, culture, local events as well as the history (or future) of Sarasota. Some months will have a fashion show or a 'mixer'. The Club's business is discussed in a friendly social setting with a relaxed atmosphere. Except for couples, seating is always assigned randomly so members have the greatest chance of meeting lots of new people.
