The Welcome Packet

What's inside?

All are chosen with you in mind to help you settle into our wonderful community.

Plus a lot of your newcomer questions will be answered in the Lawrence Welcome Packet.

  • Do we have curbside recycling?
  • What night is downtown open late?
  • Where and when is the Farmer’s Market?
  • Do you know a good doctor? A good dentist?
  • How about playgroups for the kids?
  • Where is a good church?
  • Where do I get my driver’s license?


"Receiving the Lawrence Welcome Packet was a great help when I moved to Lawrence. It took the mystery out of finding local merchants. I just started with the ones in my packet, was pleased with the products and services I received, and I still patronize many of them years later. "

"The Lawrence Welcome representative, Rayanne, is such a joy to meet with! She is so warm and friendly she makes you feel right at home in Lawrence. The Welcome Packet was full of helpful information and coupons to local businesses. The gift certificate to Checkers Foods was well worth the time spent meeting with Rayanne. I strongly encourage you to take the time to request your free packet! "
