Special Events for Members and Volunteers
Annual Friendraiser, February 13, 2018
Our annual Friendraiser is held at the historic William Blades House. This is a ticketed event for our membership and anyone who chooses to join the Historical Society that day. The house is beautifully decorated for the occasion, the food is delicious, plentiful, and elegantly served, and the evening is filled with cheer. It is a much anticipated event. This year’s Mardi Gras-themed Friendraiser will be held on Fat Tuesday, February 13. Masks, beads, amazing decorations, great food! Click here to watch a video of the last year’s fun.
The Society’s Annual Meeting for members is a ticketed event held at the New Bern Golf and Country Club each spring. A silent auction during the cocktail hour offers gourmet baskets, gift certificates, and other exciting choices. Following dinner is a brief business meeting at which new directors are elected, the announcement of the annual Marks Scholarship recipient, and an awards ceremony in which volunteers who have shown exemplary service are recognized. This year’s Annual Banquet will be held on June 1, 2017. Click here for details.
Volunteer Appreciation Social
Our annual Volunteer Appreciation Party is normally held on the lovely back lawn of the Attmore-Oliver House once or twice a year. Anyone who actively volunteers for the New Bern Historical Society is invited and encouraged to attend. Our Fall 2016 Volunteer Appreciation Party was held on Sunday, November 13 and featured a meal of hot dogs with all the trimmings and toppings, sides, dessert, and beer and wine.
Our Spring 2017 Volunteer Appreciation Party was held on Sunday, June 18 from 2-4 pm. Our hard-working volunteers enjoyed refreshments, music, friendship, prizes, and fun!
