Duxbury Newcomers Club
We had a really great showing for the Habitat for Humanity event on April 21st. Twelve of us helped put up walls, sand, putty and paint. A LOT was accomplished and the crew was extremely pleased. We also had the wonderful opportunity to meet the very excited family, whose house we were building! Later on, we celebrated over a delicious potluck dinner at one of the members’ newly decorated home.
We have 25 signed up for the Kentucky Derby Day Party this upcoming Saturday.
Also, within the past month, we have 2 new couples and 2 new singles.
Check out all of our upcoming events here.
Check out photos from our successful events on our Facebook page!

Though our beloved Pats didn't win, the Sundowners had a great time cheering on the team!
Thanks to all who attended and our gracious hosts.
Volunteer Outreach had a very successful clothing drive in January. Thank you to those who donated items to the Plymouth Area Coalition for the Homeless. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!! Thanks also goes out to Orangetheory Fitness in Kingston for volunteering their space for the drop off!
Here is just a portion of the clothes that were donated -- and just in time as the Coalition recently lost a great deal of inventory due to a flood.
Thank you to all who participated!
