Monthly Gatherings for New Residents
of the Prescott Quad-City Area

Join us each month (except December) as we meet in different locations for get-acquainted activities and
information related to culture, fine arts and enjoying life in the Prescott area.
We'll also have lunch or dinner together at a nearby restaurant to spend more time with our new friends.

Many of these events, but not all, are free.   Lunch costs vary depending on the restaurant.
We are a local, volunteer-run organization for new residents.  We also have a Book Club and other Special
Events.  Some dates are tentative.  REGISTRATION is REQUIRED.

Our regular monthly meetings (usually on the third Thursday of the month) are known as Main Events, and
other activities are called Special Events (this would include our new Munch & Mingle, and other such
events).  All meetings are open to everyone.  The Main Events are on an annual cycle - each year we go
through the same 12 monthly events and if you miss one your first year, you can catch it the next year, or
the next, or the next...  The Book Club meets monthly.  Special Events vary from year to year.
