According to the clubs website, “The Riverside Newcomers Club was founded in 1951 to provide social and cultural activities through which new residents may become acquainted with other newcomers and the community itself. On May 30, 2007 the name was given the alias of Riverside Newcomers & Neighbors because the club wanted to include all residents regardless of when they moved to the area.”
