If you have been in the Parksville Newcomers’ Club for three years, you are eligible to join Alumni, after leaving Newcomers. The purpose of the Alumni Club is to enable ‘graduates’ from Parksville Newcomers to continue to associate with each other through social and special interest activities. Couples, singles, old and not so old, male and female, are all welcome to share in the activities offered.

Alumni have an elected Board of Directors to facilitate the general operation of the Club and help organize and harmonize the various activities. Each activity has one or more appointed coordinator. Here is the alumni_constitution_and_bylaws.

PNAC encourages new activities and one-time special events as well as activities that take alumni to other areas of the Island. Suggestions for new activities are welcomed. Membership dues are $10.00 per person per year, starting in September. For further information, please contact one of the Board Members listed below.

General Meetings.

Unlike Newcomers, we do not hold regularly scheduled meetings. Notices of meetings are emailed to members and posted on this website. We have recently changed meeting times to be in the afternoons, which seem to be more popular with members than evening meetings. We will continue this format for the near future.

Some activities are combined activities including both Newcomers and Alumni Club members. Please click here for a list of PNAC Activities and Contacts and or here for the walks schedule 2020 Winter & Spring walks schedule.
