What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?
What activities, clubs and organizations would you recommend to newcomers to help them meet others?
Almost all of the small towns in this area are similar in that there isn't a lot going on, and most social activities outside of an established group of friends is through church, school or work. So I would say for most people 30+ that you need to find friends at your job or through your kids activities. Single people can go to Morristown to find entertainment and meet friends and members of the opposite sex. Mendham has a pretty good club in the Mendham Village Racquet Club. This is great for tennis, fitness, racquetball and swimming in the outdoor pool in the summer. It is free to join for the public, although some might find it a hair pricey. This actually is probably is the best bet to meet others as a newcomer.
