INFORMATION
Newcomers/Longtimers is an organization composed of    
women from all over the lake region with a membership          
averaging  approximately 250 women. There are many fun      
activities that have been added to our calendar that will         
allow you to meet and interact with other members.

We are not only a social organization but a charitable one as
well. Our annual home tour is our biggest undertaking. The
money raised is given back to local lake charities and awarded
as scholarships to students attending local colleges and      
technical schools.

Please come and join us. We look forward to meeting you and
introducing you to other women who may become your       
lifelong friends.

Favorite Thing - Shopping!

iGive” donates to chosen
organizations through on-line
purchases.

N/L has always sought new and
innovative ways to enable the
group to better accomplish its
mission over the years.  Recently,
members of the N/L board signed
up for “iGive,” an organization
that arranges for merchants
(currently more than 1,700) to
donate to specified organizations
on behalf of individuals that
purchase their products and
services.  It costs nothing, you
simply shop with one of the
participating merchants and they
donate an average of 3% to your
designated organization. Again,
you will spend nothing extra - in
fact you'll often save money with
exclusive coupons, free shipping
specials, and sales only available
for iGive members. It's simple, it's
free, and it's fast.

We encourage you to consider
this opportunity as you do your
on-line shopping.  Simply sign up
at
iGive.com, specify Newcomers/
Longtimers as the organization
you wish to support, then return
to iGive.com when you are ready
to shop,   search for your favorite
store (or we recommend
downloading their icon to your
computer, making it even
easier!), click on the link, then
shop away!  The donations are
made automatically to your
specified cause.
