A club comprised of talented and dedicated women who, since 1905, have worked to make our Eastern NC community a better place to live and visit. Through supporting the arts, providing educational opportunities for local students, promoting healthy lifestyles, encouraging civic involvement, and working toward community understanding, our members experience numerous opportunities to learn, grow, give back and – oh yes – have a lot of fun.
Please plan to join the New Bern Woman’s Club for our 20th Anniversary ‘The Holly and The Ivy” Holiday Homes Tour on Saturday, December 8th. The tour showcases 4 lovely historic district homes and a charming craftsman-style cottage in the downtown Ghent neighborhood. This year’s tour is dedicated to the memory of Past President Jeanne Collison, who in 1998 brought the idea of a holiday tour to the New Bern Woman’s Club and offered her own restored home, the Robert Hancock House at 217 King St., as the Sugar Plum Treats House. You can revisit this charming home, now owned by the Kotrch family, and visit with Frank and Franny, the fox dolls owned by Jeanne and given to NBWC upon her death. The proceeds from this year’s tour will go to support Hurricane Florence relief and recovery in Craven County. Also don’t forget to pick up a copy of the Union Point Park Cookbook ($20) on sale at the Lovie Fulcher House, 1421 Spencer Ave.
NBWC has been a proud supporter of the community since 1905.
