West Hartford Newcomers & Neighbors is a social organization whose purpose is to bring residents in the community together for friendship and fun. Newcomers & Neighbors is run exclusively by volunteers.
Each year, Newcomers & Neighbors sponsors a wide variety of activities and events aimed at the diverse interests of our membership. If members have an interest that is not yet represented, they are encouraged to initiate a new event or group.
With a membership of nearly 75 families, Newcomers & Neighbors is a great way to make wonderful friends, get involved in a fantastic community, and have lots of fun in the process. We hope that you decide to join us. Please give us a call if you are new to town or if you just want to get re-acquainted with your community.
