About Us

Ladysmith Family and Friends Society (LaFF) is run by a volunteer Board of Directors. It is a non-profit society created by local parents and caregivers in 1995.

In an effort to reduce the isolation many parents feel, provide opportunities for children to socialize at a low to no cost, and build a sense of community amongst families and children, LaFF launched its flagship program: “LaFF at the Aggie”.

To date, the group has met it’s goals with great success. Our Resource Program has a history of creating community and extended-family-like friendships. Participants often comment on how they have made life-changing friendships and networks of friends through LaFF at the Aggie.

Some happy LaFFers.
