One of the first things new members learn about Newcomers/Longtimers is that not only is it a social organization
made up of a group of fun outgoing ladies, but an organization that transforms lives through financial donations to
lake area charities and scholarships for college students.
One of the responsibilities and privileges of being the president of Newcomers Longtimers is to choose the charities
and scholarship recipients that will benefit from the proceeds of the annual home tour. The following scholarships
and charities have been chosen by the Newcomers Longtimers 2018-2019 President to be the recipients of the
proceeds from the 2019 home tour.
Scholarships will be awarded to qualified applicants enrolled in the nursing program at Columbia College.
Both Columbia College Nursing Programs are approved by the Missouri State Board of Nursing. Columbia College is
accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, is a member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools
and holds specialized accreditation in its Education program. Graduates of either program are eligible to apply to
take the Missouri State Board of Nursing Licensure Examination to become registered nurses.
Wonderland Camp - For over 45 years, Wonderland Camp has provided a fun, educational summer camp experience
for campers of all ability levels and of all ages. The mission of Wonderland Camp is to provide a fun, educational
camp experience for children, teenagers and adults who have disabilities; to offer a respite from daily care giving for
their family members and health care workers; and to provide and nurture a personal development experience for
volunteers and staff.
Camden County Child Advocacy Council - is a group whose purpose is to make the public aware of the role they can
play in child abuse and neglect prevention. The group provides educational campaigns and aid to abused and
neglected children, acting as advocates for the general welfare of children and families.
By supporting these two charities with the proceeds of the 2019 home tour Newcomers Longtimers will help to both
prevent child abuse and heal those innocent children who have been harmed to have a better life and supply
qualified nursing staff for area hospitals.
