Newcomer’s Club launches new season with a party

The La Jolla Newcomers Club kicked off its 2011-12 year of activities with a President’s Reception attended by some 100 guests at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club on Oct. 16. Recognizing the value of long-term friendships established through the club, as well as the importance of incorporating new members, the theme for the year comes from the old camp song: “Make new friends but keep the old. One is silver, and the other gold.”

The club’s new president, Ina Thompson, and her husband, Rich Wolf, moved to La Jolla from Georgia in 2005. The club is open to anyone who has moved to La Jolla (or within La Jolla) in the last three years. Annual dues are $50. Learn more about events at
