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.


Saturday, Dec. 1  *  5 p.m.  *   Free
Prescott Courthouse Lighting

122 E. Gurley St., Prescott

Register by Thursday, November 29, by clicking HERE.

Join us for this Prescott Christmas tradition.  We'll meet in the Arizona Room of the Hassayampa Inn, 122 E.
Gurley Street, then walk down the street to the courthouse where musicians will be performing until the
lighting ceremony begins at 6 p.m.  We'll listen to a reading of the Biblical account of the Christmas story
and join in singing Christmas hymns, then share the excitement when all the courthouse grounds are
suddenly lit with thousands of Christmas lights.  It will be cold (in the 30s) with a small chance of rain (or
maybe some snowflakes?) so dress warm and bring a hat.  We'll be standing for about an hour so wear
comfortable shoes.

Dinner at the Hassayampa Inn - 6:45 p.m.
This dinner is limited to the first 50 people who register.

After the ceremony, we'll walk back to the Hassayampa Inn for dinner where we'll order from a limited menu.  
To see the limited menu, click
HERE.  There will be a cash-only bar available in the room.  

Tuesday, Dec. 4   *   10 a.m.   *   Free
