Duxbury Newcomers Club
Volunteer Outreach has teamed up with School on Wheels of Massachusetts to help support local children in need. Your contributions will provide backpacks and supplies to all of these students.
School on Wheels has an Amazon wish list available on their website or if you prefer, they can take monetary donations (please reference Duxbury Newcomers Club).
Donations can be made until September 9th. Thank you very much for your consideration and support!

Calling all tennis players who would like to meet up to play once a week during the day. You need to know how to play and keep score, etc., but you do not have to be good! We will divide up by levels.
This first round of meet-ups will be at the library tennis courts on Alden Street until the nets are taken down. Please fill out the survey with the dates/times you are available to meet. I will follow up with the time we will be meeting.
As we build Newcomers' tennis meet-ups, the available times are those during which I can make it. As we get rolling and if there is enough interest, I'll be happy to assist groups in forming at other times.
Once we are forced to, we will move inside to play at the Kingsbury Club. At that time, we will have to work around their court availability and will have to charge members to participate as Kingsbury charges an hourly court fee. The benefit of the Kingsbury Club is that it has a multitude of indoor courts and it has childcare that anyone is able to utilize. I will be sending out a new form in a few weeks for late fall tennis at Kingsbury.
Hope to see you on the courts!
Congratulations to our members, Jess and Matt Kreiser on the birth of their fourth child- a boy! They welcomed Jacob Steven Kreiser on August 29th weighing 8lbs 9oz. Jacob joins big sisters and brother Hannah (6), Olivia (3) and Sam (2). We are offering the family helping hands, so please sign up for the Meal Train. Feel free to forward this email to include more friends! Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Welcome Jacob and congratulations to the Kreiser family!
I can't believe its already that time to actually ask this but.... Interested in joining a Fall playgroup?
The playgroup sign-up survey was sent out to all members via email. Please fill out by September 5th so that placements may be made.
If you did not receive the email please contact me at email@example.com.
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.

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!
