Monthly Member Luncheons and Meeting

Our monthly member luncheon meetings are generally held on the second Thursday of the month, September through to June. Sometimes we need the change the date though, so check those carefully on our Events page.

The format for these meetings are usually as follows:

11:30 AM doors open. Social time, buy 50/50 tickets ($2.00 each or 3/$5.00). Sign up for club activities.

12:00 noon. Luncheon served

1:00 PM: Guest Speaker or more socializing

2:00 PM We are done

Cost is $28.00. When we receive your payment, you are registered. We prefer to receive online payments to reduce the amount of work for our volunteers who organize these events. There is a small processing fee added to the cost when you pay online. You will receive an email confirmation from Brown Paper Tickets when the payment has been processed successfully. You will also see the charges come through on your credit card statement from Brown Paper Tickets. Please keep the confirmation in case there are any problems with your name not appearing on our list at the door.

If you wish to pay by cheque, make it payable to Peninsula Newcomers Club and make sure you get it to us prior to the deadline for payment - by mail or giving it to us in person. Generally, postal service takes at least 8 days to go to Vancouver and come all the way back to Sidney, so you need to work well in advance if you rely on the mail service. We do not accept cash.

At each luncheon, we hold a 50/50 draw, proceeds going to club activities and administrative costs.

Bring your name tag and be prepared to catch up with friends and make some new ones.

If you have paid for a luncheon and find that you can’t make it, we will give you credit for a future luncheon or destroy your cheque - as long as you notify us prior to the deadline for payment.

The menu for the luncheons is fixed and we are not able to accommodate requests for special dietary needs at this time. We do try to choose a menu that is more acceptable to common restrictions, but this is not always the case. Whenever possible, we will post the menu with the event.

Potential new members are welcome to attend one luncheon meeting as a guest, but request you notify us first by email prior to paying so we know who you are.
