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

Join us each month 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.

We are a local, volunteer-run organization for new residents.  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 Social which meets quarterly, 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...  
Our Book Club meets monthly and discusses a new book each month.  Special Events vary from year to

NewCATs activities are intended for both men and women, couples and singles.  Many of those who attend
are retired but some are still working in the community or online.  Our desire is to help new residents explore
our amazing communities, focusing on cultural and recreation activities, and to meet new friends.

Many of our events, but not all, are free. Some of the venues that we visit require an admission fee and
sometimes we collect an honorarium for a speaker.  To keep transactions simple, these fees are collected in
cash at the meeting (since we don't have an organization bank account).  Lunch costs vary depending on
the restaurant.  We do not collect any membership dues.  Our modest needs are covered by donations from
local businesses.  

The best way to learn about NewCATs events is to join our email meeting notification system.  We send out
2-3 announcements per month with information about meetings and links for registration.  To be added to
that list, please send an email to Barbara at

eritage Park Zoological Sanctuary
1403 Heritage Park Rd. (off Willow Creek Rd.), Prescott, AZ 86301

Register by Monday, April 22, by clicking HERE.

The Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary is a wildlife rescue and rehabilitation facility.  See rehabilitated
animals native to our region including coyotes, wolves, bobcats, a mountain lion, javalena, bears, and
pronghorn. The zoo houses other rescued animals from around the world including two rare clouded
leopards. You'll also want to visit the Tarantula Hut and the Reptile House!  After some get-acquainted
activities in the pavilion, a Heritage Park Zoo guide will tell us about the work of the zoological sanctuary and
take us on a tour to see the animals.  (The zoo is off Willow Creek Rd., across from Embry-Riddle.)  

Lunch at the Palace Restaurant and Saloon, 120 S Montezuma St, Prescott, AZ 86303 - 12:15 p.m.

After our meeting at the zoo, we'll head to downtown Prescott for lunch at the Palace Restaurant and
Saloon.  It is both the oldest business and oldest bar operating in the state of Arizona. Located on historic
Whiskey Row, the saloon was opened in 1877, and rebuilt in 1901 after a disastrous fire swept the district in
1900. It is considered one of the most historic bars in the state.  Doc Holiday and Wyatt Earp used to gamble
there and the saloon is the filming location of scenes in two classic films, Junior Bonner (with Steve
McQueen) and Billy Jack, as well as the recently produced Wish Man.
