Our History

Newcomers and Friends of Laredo was formed in 1983 by Jody Townsend, the wife of Laredo’s first City Manager. Finding it hard to meet new friends, she went about starting a New Resident’s Club. She soon found that Laredo had many newcomers that were ready and willing to join. When people who were either born in Laredo or who had lived here for years expressed an interest in joining, the club’s name was changed to Newcomers and Friends of Laredo, Inc. The club has grown steadily since that time and many lifelong friendships have been formed.

Our Motto

Building Community and Fostering Friendships for 30 years and Counting.
