The Birmingham-Bloomfield Newcomers Club (BBNC) is a non-profit group consisting of over 270 women of all ages, from the U.S. and all over the world. The majority are expatriates from North America, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, the Caribbean and South America. Some of us are also Americans who have recently relocated to the area or simply enjoy making new friends from other countries. Contrary to what our name suggests, our members do not need to live in Birmingham or Bloomfield only. Many of us live in Rochester, West Bloomfield, Troy, Royal Oak, Novi, Southfield, Clawson, Franklin or in any where in the of Detroit area.
Through the BBNC, members choose activities and events that fit their own individual interests. Over coffee or card games, through sports or community service projects, we get acquainted or catch up with old friends. We teach each other new languages, customs and cuisines. We inspire each other. More often than not, cross-cultural, lifelong friendships take root. The best way to get started is to come to a Welcome Coffee, normally held on the first Monday of the month.
