A social organization serving women in the
Lake of the Ozarks area
Newcomers / Longtimers
Chartered in 1965 by a group of enterprising women, Newcomers/Longtimers is both
a lake institution and tradition. Each year N/L supports the community and many of its
local charities through scholarships and fund raising events, like the annual home  
tour, now in its 23rd year, and community awareness activities.  But the group is not
all work and no play. Each month N/L hosts a luncheon that includes a variety of    
programs designed to interest, inform and entertain. Each month the group meets to  
play a ruckus game of bunco, attend a movie followed by dinner, share a good book,  
indulge in a cocktail at happy hour or enjoy a day of cards and games. If your interest
is not peaked yet, how about some special trips and activities like a tour of Warm
Springs Ranch to see the Clydesdales and taste test the King of Beers? And the best
part, you can attend only one or all of the activities that are of interest to you and fit
your schedule. For most of these events though you will need to leave your partner at
home as this is a ladies organization.
