The Newcomers' Club of Lake Bluff & Lake Forest is an all-volunteer social organization founded in the 1950's to promote friendship among new residents and to help them become active members of the community. Today's Newcomers' Club has about 200 members and a wide variety of ongoing activities - something for everyone!
