About Us

Welcome to Scarsdale and thank you for your interest in the Scarsdale New Residents Club.

The Scarsdale New Residents’ club is purely a social club made up of about 120 families, some who have recently moved into Scarsdale and others who have lived here for many years. Our members come from all over the world and are an eclectic mix of young and old, who all share the same common desire to meet and socialize with fellow local residents as well as find support and friendship.

We hold a coffee morning each month, run various activities such as a book club, mah jong, chick flicks, Guys nights and monthly cultural excursions as well as regular social events throughout the year.

In addition to taking part in all of our activities, as a member you will have access to the member area of our website which allows you to register for our events or find other members near you.  You will also have the option to join our secret, closed FB group, where members share useful tips and you have the opportunity to have questions answered or give recommendations.

Everyone interested is invited to join us for our monthly coffee morning to take a peek and try a couple of things in the Club before joining.

A Little History

Moving is always stressful, regardless of whether it’s across the street or halfway around the world.  Lynne Turley’s move to Scarsdale came after numerous changes of address, so she was no stranger to dealing with a new house, school system, or even country.  But connecting with people here was a bit of a challenge.   A newcomers group might help her settle in, or so Lynne hoped, but the ones she explored were not quite on her wavelength.  Finally she resolved to start her own club, one that would truly serve the needs of new residents for friendship, fun and acclimation to Scarsdale.

Before long her organization was up and running.  Word went out through churches, realtors and the local newspaper and soon Lynne had recruited new friends Jan, Paulette, Debby and Chris.  All had spent time abroad and were keenly aware of the challenges faced by foreigners in a strange land.  Soon they were joined by newcomers from all over the world as well as the US.  Everyone was welcome regardless of nationality.

Since its inception in 1998 by its five founders, Scarsdale New Residents Club has grown to include over 80 members.  Many of us have children in the local schools.  Most –not all!– of us are women, in a range of ages and occupations, with interests as varied as food, tennis, reading, cooking, museums, walking, movies, etc.  (As diverse as we all may be, an addiction to coffee is our common ground).  Mainly we just enjoy casual socializing and sharing tips on how to survive and thrive in Scarsdale.  Our activities take place on average every month, 10 months a year.  Families are included in the membership; spouses and children join us for certain special events.  In everything, participation is entirely voluntary and according to your time and interests.

Scarsdale is a community where many people, due to the nature of their work, might only stay a few years.  Others are so busy that they barely even notice new neighbors, let alone have time to get acquainted.  SNRC exists to help all of us, new and old, overcome the transience of modern life, make friends, and explore the many exciting resources of this area.  The only requirement to join is residence here.  Of course, we hope you are also friendly, fun and a bit adventurous!

Welcome to Scarsdale!


Committee effective Sept 2017


The officers of the SNRC are all members who volunteer their time and enthusiasm on behalf of the club. The term of office is typically two years.  We work together in a collaborative, relaxed way to help lead the club and organize its main activities.  Although all members lead busy lives, it’s important that some of us step up to help keep the club running year after year.

If you have enjoyed being a member and to give back to our club community, please consider volunteering. Your contribution will be deeply appreciated!
