About our Chapter


The Newport Chapter is a vibrant group of women and their daughters in grades 7-12.  There are 157 Provisional and Active mothers, who are called Patronesses, and 195 daughters called Ticktockers. Our membership resides in the Newport-Mesa Unified School District, though some attend private schools throughout Orange County. We are unique among the other NCL, Inc. Chapters in that we own a thrift shop, we host an annual debutante ball, and we have an active Juniors group as well as four active Sustainer groups.

Our Chapter hosts a Holiday Boutique fundraiser in November, a Chapter Tea in March and our May “End of the Rainbow” luncheon, honoring those who have earned awards for their volunteer service, as well as the senior mothers and daughters who have completed their six years in the Chapter.
