ZACHARY NEWCOMERS CLUBNEWCOMERS CLUB
Our History


The Zachary Newcomers Club was formed in 1984 to provide a medium by which new families may become better acclimated to Zachary and the surrounding community.

Initiated by the Chamber of Commerce, the club remains actively supported by the Chamber, City of Zachary and many local businesses. The club has become a strong volunteer base for many local organizations such as schools, the City, the Chamber of Commerce, the McHugh House Museum and others. Actively involved with many charities throughout the year the club is a proud supporter of the Zachary Food Pantry, Council on Aging, FAZE and the Zachary Historical Association.

The club is governed by a thirteen member Board with the five executive officers being elected by the membership each April. The club has it's own Constitution and By-Laws.
