Scholarship

Redding Newcomers & Friends Club is a non-profit women’s organization whose objectives are to welcome newcomers as well as residents who are not new to the area. We provide social activities to help members become acquainted with the community and with each other. At present, there are almost 400 members with club activities for individuals and couples. The number of current members and the variety of sponsored activities attest to the success of the Club.
