We welcome all women from our surrounding areas.
In July 1977 a group of six women met at the home of Betty Hayes to set up the Roseville Newcomers Club. In November the club was organized, bylaws written and bridge groups formed.
The club’s focus was to welcome and introduce newcomers to the area. Dues were collected, new card games added, monthly luncheons started, and a monthly newsletter was created and distributed.
Members enjoyed the club so much that they didn’t want to relinquish their membership when they were no longer newcomers. RANN soon became a social club that still focused on welcoming newcomers.
In 2000 membership expanded beyond Roseville, and the club name was changed to Roseville Area Newcomers & Neighbors. Monthly board meetings, bylaws, job descriptions coffees and luncheons continued. As new interests came up, more activity groups were formed to include book clubs, a genealogy group, cooking groups, breakfasts, wine and appetizers, a photography group, day trips, other game groups and sports including golf, bocce and pickleball.
Members expressed interest in giving back to the community, so the club added a Community Service Chair to the board. Currently, RANN sponsors two local Placer County charities annually selected by the board. The primary charity receives funds raised at the annual Make, Bake, Fake Luncheon. Make, Bake, Fake features an auction of handmade items, baked items and donated items. The secondary charity receives donated toiletries and gently-used clothing.
Today RANN communicates through our website and email. We still add actiivites as interests broaden. We embrace our roots and celebrate our future growth as an organization that focuses on welcoming new members while savoring the friendships of older ones.
Roseville Area Newcomers and Neighbors (RANN) is a social club that welcomes both new and established women from our local communities. The Club's wide range of activities and events are a great way to make new friends, meet neighbors, feel connected, and create special memories.
