For Americans interested, I recently joined The American Club and have found it quite enjoyable. It has been in Auckland since Protected content is focused on bringing Americans, and anyone interested in America, together for some fun socialising. They have events for all the big American holidays, along with lots of other things throughout the year. There is a monthly Meet & Greet that anyone can come along to, and I have recently been helping out with a planned new program of events for families that the kids can enjoy.
