A Brief History
In April 1982 a meeting was organized for the purpose of forming an alumnae group of members of Welcome Wagon Northeast. A majority of the first graduating class (May 1982) attended as well as the prospective alumnae of December 1982. At that meeting the WWNE Alumnae was formalized, along with a set of acting officers for the Executive Board of Directors.
At the May 1982 graduation luncheon, the parent club presented a check for $100 to the WWNE Alumnae to aid in starting the new club. The first formal luncheon meeting was held in September 1982 and the name was changed to Welcome Wagon Tucson Club Northeast. The parent club combined with the Alumnae club in June 2006 and the name was changed to Welcome Wagon Tucson Northeast Club.
In 2013 the club’s name changed to Tucson Welcome Club to better reflect what we do and how far we have come from being associated with the former organization that once greeted new comers to the area.
