NNLC is the official social club of New Neighbors League, Inc. (NNLC), which was founded in Dayton, Ohio in 1939 by Theodore R. Briggs, a former newspaperman. Out of the business of greeting new residents grew a recognized need of a social organization that allowed newcomers to meet others who were also new to the area.
Theodore’s wife, Bunny, lived in many cities throughout the United States and knew the loneliness associated with moving into unfamiliar areas. With the aid of the Ohio Federated Women’s Club, she drafted the Constitution and By-Laws for NNLC. The first Chapter was chartered in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1943. As the greeting service operations were established across the country, new club chapters were founded.
Dayton was home for new Neighbors League until 1986 when Corporate and Club Headquarters were moved to Atlanta, Georgia and Cheryl Fischer-Beaudreault (an Atlanta New Neighbor) assumed the position of National President. Presently there are fourteen operations nationwide. Each Chapter operates independently within established guidelines and under the direction of a local Board and Club Director.
New Neighbors League of Peachtree City was founded in 1988.
