Volunteer Appreciation and New Member Social
Save the date! This year's social is on Sunday, May 5, 2019.
If you have volunteered for or sponsored any program or event since last May ~ or ~ if you recently joined the Society, this party is JUST for you! The social is normally held on a Sunday afternoon in May on the beautiful, shady south lawn of the Attmore-Oliver House. There you can sip our signature Sangria and sample a savor snack.

Annual Meeting & Awards Banquet
The Society's Annual Banquet for members is held at the beautiful New Bern Golf and Country Club each spring. Enjoy fellowship with Society members in a beautiful venue overlooking the majestic Trent River. Following entertainment and dinner is a brief business meeting at which new directors are elected, the annual Marks Scholarship recipient is announced, and volunteers who have shown exemplary service are recognized with special awards.
Mark your calendars: this year's Annual Banquet will be Thursday, May 23, 2019.
Encourage your friends and new neighbors to join the Historical Society! They will be supporting an important mission and will enjoy the many programs and events we offer.
Unfortunately, the 2019 Friendraiser has been cancelled. Hurricane Florence took a toll on the availability of venue space for this widely-attended event. During this year, our Membership Committee will examine options for how we attract and welcome new members. If you have any helpful feedback for the committee, please contact the office at 252.638.8558.
