Spanish explorers came to present-day Burke County more than 450 years ago. Archaeologist Melissa Timo will tell us why they were here and what they left behind.
She will speak at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, May 9. at our monthly meeting at Hickory Regional Airport.

Welcome to the Catawba Valley in the N.C. foothills!Newcomers of Catawba Valley is a social club for men and women where new and long-time residents explore the area and build friendships. We play cards and other games, visit restaurants and enjoy music and the theater. Most of us are retired, but all ages are welcome.
Who is a member?Although some members have lived in the area for a decade or more, most join during the first three years in residence. We welcome members from the Unifour area which consists of Alexander, Burke, Caldwell and Catawba counties.
What do we do?A general meeting is held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at Hickory Regional Airport’s Crosswind Cafe. Meetings occasionally are held at other locations, so check the club’s calendar. We start with a Welcome Coffee at 10:30 a.m. followed by a brief business meeting and a speaker. Most of our fun comes at our many activities, ranging from bowling, book club, games, eating out and evening socials where we get to know each other.
