Normal event schedules will recommence once Covid restrictions are lifted.


The monthly luncheons are usually the first Thursday of the month at the Riverside Country Club.  Members meet to socialize before the buffet lunch which always includes gluten-free items.  Our luncheons have programs with very interesting speakers from throughout the valley who present programs on various topics or we may have a fashion show or a musical performance by a local musician or group.   

In addition, members bring food donations which are then delivered to the Gallatin Valley Food Bank.   Each luncheon there is a different theme for the food donations.  Over the years, we have donated thousands of pounds of food to the Food Bank.

When making a reservation, please keep in mind:

  • Reservations and cancellations must be made by the Sunday prior to the luncheon
  • Our GVNC Treasurer will invoice “no shows“ for the full amount
  • Payment at luncheon can be cash, credit card, or check made out to GVNC
  • We are unable to make change for $50 or $100 bills
  • No soliciting, marketing or business activities are allowed
  • Luncheons are not “Mom’s day out” as we have no child care facilities.

Non-members may attend luncheons (up to three total events) prior to joining our club.  When you attend a monthly luncheon as a guest or new member, you are greeted by a Hospitality Chairperson who will help you find a table and get acquainted with others.  You are also introduced as a guest or new member of the group during the business meeting.  We make a special effort to ensure everyone feels welcome.

Newcomer Excursions are currently suspended until we enter phase 3 of the Covid restrictions.

These are day trips to various venues in the area or surrounding towns.  They are a no-host event – a tour to an area business or museum and then lunch at an area restaurant.  Excursions are usually on the second Tuesday, but on occasion will be on another day and there may be more than one excursion in some months.
