Special Events for Members and Volunteers
Annual Friendraiser, February 13, 2018
Our annual Friendraiser is held at the historic William B. Blades House. This is a ticketed event for our membership and anyone who chooses to join the Historical Society by that day. The house is beautifully decorated for the occasion, the hors d’oeuvres and desserts are 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, 2018. Creative masks, colorful beads, amazing decorations, great food, and prizes for best bling! Space is limited so reserve early.
Annual Banquet and Awards Ceremony
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 annual Marks Scholarship recipient is announced, and volunteers who have shown exemplary service are recognized with special awards. This year’s Annual Banquet will be held on Thursday, May 17, 2018. Details will be published soon.
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 Spring 2018 Volunteer Appreciation Party will be held on Sunday, May 6 from 2-4 pm. All of our hard-working volunteers are warmly invited to enjoy refreshments, music, friendship, prizes, and fun!
