In light of the spreading Delta variant and new variants, the Simsbury Newcomers & Neighbors has created a Covid policy for all of our events.
Masks are required for all indoor events and Simsbury Newcomers & Neighbors is asking that members be vaccinated.
If a member is not feeling well, please be considerate of others and stay at home. Members may also need to provide documentation of vaccination status at any time.
Note: Below is the list of activities that will be available during the 2021-2022 year. We are now collecting dues for the 2021-2022 year. Please visit our Membership page if you are not current a member or our Membership Renewal page if you are already a member for the latest information. Stay safe and healthy.
Simsbury Newcomers & Neighbors activities are listed alphabetically below – click the plus sign next to the Activity Title to read the description. If you are interested in trying out an activity before you join, please contact the activity coordinator to let them know you’d like to attend.
If you’re interested in starting a new activity group, please contact Marilyn Iezzi. She’d be happy to help you bring your ideas to fruition.
There are both Day and Evening discussion groups. Books are chosen at the beginning of each year, and everyone who is involved in these groups have a say in what is planned. This is a great group to join if you love to read – there’s a new book every month! – or just love to talk about books.

Bunko is a very old dice game that’s really easy to learn. And a lot of fun to play. It’s so easy that while you’re rolling the dice, your mind can be on your discussion, and you can have a fun social morning out with friends. This group plays one morning a month – so if you’re interested, contact Arlene Zappile.
Fall Tennis Outdoors (weather permitting)
Ladies' Lunch Bunch
This is a fun group, where the ladies get together once a month to enjoy each others’ companionship and some good food. The leaders of the group, Alayna Clark and Toni Robinson, make reservations at different venues in the area so you can not only enjoy the atmosphere and lively conversation, but also try out a restaurant or two you may have never had the chance to go to before.
The Needlework Group is a congenial weekly gathering of beginner and experienced needlecrafters. We meet in a member’s home or the Simsbury Public Library every Monday between 10:30 AM and 1:30 PM. Join us for part or all of that time to be inspired, learn from others, or share your knowledge. Members host the group at home and provide refreshments. A weekly email message tells members the location of the next meeting and gives driving directions. If you’re interested, contact Carrie Houghton.
This is a new activity that includes various events that will “Pop Up” from time to time. Sports events, comedy clubs, special dinners, wine tastings are just a few of the events that may be planned. Members and their guests are invited to join in on the fun. Shari Cassutt is the coordinator of this group and keep the mailing list, but all members of Pop Ups are free to send out an invitation to whatever fun things they want to organize.
Wine and Women
Wine & Women is a fun and casual group that meets once a month, at a member’s home, usually on the third Thursday night of the month. Everyone brings a bottle of wine or other beverage of choice and an appetizer or dessert to share. It’s fun to meet new members and reconnect with friends. We welcome members to join the group at any time during the year. And, of course, you don’t have to drink wine to enjoy an evening out with this lively crowd! Contact Sarah Nanzig to participate.
