My husband and I moved to Ankeny a month ago from Tulsa, OK (we're both mid 20's). We moved for his job and this is the first time we've ever lived out of OK. This might sound childish - but, how do I make friends in a new place? I've googled social clubs but not really any luck. I joined the Y in Ankeny which I love, but I'm not a big class person, which is where you meet a lot of people usually. I'm a teacher so when school starts in two weeks I'll meet new people there and we go to church (whenever we both can - he works weekends too so that's hard) but haven't met anyone there.
Any recommendations on where to meet people? I'd like to volunteer in Ankeny/Des Moines, too and haven't been successful at finding places. Any info would be appreciated!
