Newcomers of San Antonio

"Bloom Where You Are Planted"



Welcome to Newcomers

Newcomers of San Antonio, is a diverse group of people whose objective is to extend a friendly and neighborly hand to all newcomers to San Antonio by introducing them to each other and their new community. Newcomers also promotes interest in our city and encourages community involvement. Our mission is to extend a warm welcome to new residents who relocate to San Antonio, help them integrate rapidly into our community and develop a sense of security and belonging.

Newcomers meets the first Thursday of every month for a luncheon (except July) and the third Thursday of every month for coffee. We also have 30+ Interest Groups that meet generally once a month for a variety of activities. These groups include exploring San Antonio, book talks, cooking, bowling, bridge, bunco, dining, hiking, pickleball, golf, canasta, community service, euchre, mah jongg, mentoring, movies, gardening, knit/crochet, game night, genealogy, jigsaw puzzling, wine tasting, and more! There are also several activities for couples to enjoy.


Newcomers of San Antonio is a social organization that welcomes residents who are NEW to the greater San Antonio area or have experienced a significant life-change event (such as a loss of spouse, divorce, retirement) in the last three years.  We have an instant social calendar that's filled with fun events to get out and enjoy and explore this energetic city!

We have over 250 members with over 30 interest groups, it’s an excellent way for you to find friends and activities to do in your new home town.

Check out the sample calendar to see how much fun you could be having every month. (Members, the live calendar is in Members Corner)

Join this great group of people today! Annual dues are $35 with a one-time $5 application fee.

From The President

Welcome to Newcomers of San Antonio! Forty-one years ago our organization was established by four women who wanted to welcome new residents to the Alamo City. With over 250 members it is still our focus today. We all have times in our life when we especially need to find good friends, and Newcomers is a great way to meet people and share your time and talents with others. 

Join us for our monthly coffees, luncheons, and over 30 Interest Groups that meet regularly—there is no shortage of ways to be involved! We encourage you to start a new interest group if we do not offer something you have a passion for. We are always looking for people who want to jump in! We hope you will join us for the activities and stay for the friendships. We want Newcomers of San Antonio to be just the support system you need as you make San Antonio your home, or as your life has taken a new turn.

I feel very fortunate to be president of an organization that is dedicated to helping our community members “bloom where they are planted.” We look forward to seeing you soon at one of our next functions!

Carol Palazzo

President 2022-23
