The Allendale Newcomers & Neighbors Club is an active part of the town, providing many ways to meet new people, become involved in the community, help others, and just have fun! The club is run exclusively by volunteers who live in Allendale. Each year, ANNC hosts a wide variety of activities and events.

This is what ANNC is all about...

MEETING NEW RESIDENTS AND CATCHING UP WITH NEIGHBORS

EVENING SOCIAL EVENTS  

A cornerstone of ANNC. We hold several evening social events including the annual Holiday Party, Wine Tasting, Pub Nights, Progressive Dinner, and more.


LADIES' NIGHT OUT  

The ladies of ANNC head out for a night out in a variety of activities from dinners to exclusive shopping events to new exercise studios (i.e. Cycle Bar).

GETTING THE KIDS OUT TO PLAY WITH "SOON-TO-BE" CLASSMATES

PLAYGROUPS  

Do you have a child under age 5?  

We’ll help match you with other families with kids of a similar age entering school the same year as your child, for casual meet ups.


KIDS' DAY OUT  

Come on out for a little adult company while the kids play! A chance for you and your kids to make new friends and stay connected with old friends at a variety of fun and relaxed outings.

SPECIAL GATHERINGS FOR EVERY INTEREST

GOURMET CLUB  

Join us for a monthly themed dinner, where everyone contributes a dish. We try new recipes, share tips on making them, and most importantly have a great time!


JESSICA'S BOOK CLUB  

Named in honor of Jessica Henderson-Chen, a former President of ANNC who recently passed away. Jessica loved books and continued reading despite all the challenges she had fighting a brain tumor. Our bookclub meets monthly to discuss books of all genres, in a relaxed, social atmosphere.


HELPING HANDS  

Give back to the community by assisting other club members during times of need (birth of a baby, death in family, illness, etc.): provide meals, rides, etc..

FUN EVENTS FOR ALL AGES

MEN'S NIGHT OUT 

For the men in the club, join the men of ANNC for fun evening events.


MEN'S BASKETBALL 

Looking to meet some new people in town and want to get some exercise as well? Join us every Tuesday night from 8:30 pm – 10:00 pm at the Wyckoff YMCA for some friendly pickup basketball games.

You don’t have to be able to come every week and don’t need to be a pro, we play without referees and are out to just meet some of the new residents of Allendale and get a good workout. It is always a good time and great way to meet each other.
