Monthly Meetings

We meet every month from September through May. During these meetings we have time for socializing and then offer a special program – speakers of local interest or social activities. Go to our meetup page Franklin Newcomers & Friends (Franklin, MA) | Meetup for more details on date, location and topics. Anyone can come to a meeting before deciding to join the club, so mark your calendar and join us!

Community Service

We take great pride in giving back to our community. Each year the club solicits nominations from our membership for worthy local and national organizations. The club then votes on the nominations to determine our charitable giving for the year.
With paid membership in the Club, you’re eligible for the following:

Member Benefits

Eligible to attend all meetings and activities, some at discounted rates or free!

Great people of all ages to hang out with, wide variety of activities planned each month!

Member Activities

In addition to our monthly meetings we offer a variety of activities for our members throughout the year.  Past events have included:  trivia nights, movie nights, paint nights, hiking, trip to shows, wine tasting, craft nights, volunteering at the Franklin Food Pantry, breakfast club, dinners, snow shoeing, and many more!
We’re always open for suggestions for meeting topics or events.

What we ask of members

Be as active as you can!  The more you participate, the more you will get out of the club. Many lifelong friendships began here! Help out at our annual fundraiser in some way. We host a Craft Fair in November and need many volunteers to run it. The whole club gets involved in the craft fair- from set-up and clean-up, to baking, to working the admission table and selling raffle tickets. The majority of money raised is returned to the community through charitable contributions, as decided by our membership.
Be willing to pitch in with ideas for club activities, meeting topics, etc.  Our club is driven by the interests of our membership, so we would love to hear any ideas you have!   Help plan an event or partner with a member to plan something fun.  Many hands make light work.
