President’s Message for March 2019
Our club has hit a new record with 510 members in 6 months! We have another exciting month planned with many fun activities. Our next General Meeting is Friday, March 8th starting at 9:30 A.M. with our "Meet and Greet". We need 6 more members who are willing to bring a small refreshment to share during the Meet and Greet. You can sign up online or contact Mary Jane Pyck (listed in our Directory) or send us a message at "Contact Us" on the homepage.
At 10:00 AM, our FYI Speaker is Leland's Parks and Recreation Director Jim Bucher. His talk will focus on Leland's Belville Park & Riverwalk. Our Feature Speaker is Allison Baringer, Executive Director of the famous North Carolina Azalea Festival. The 5 day festival begins April 3rd with over 50 events so don't miss the information that will be shared.
Come join the fun at the Duplin Winery Murder Mystery show and dinner on May 18th at 5:30 PM. Registration, which includes bus transportation is open until March 15th so don't delay! We still have some seats available on the bus and since this will be a late night, this option let's you relax in comfort for the hour's drive home, arriving back in Leland at 10:30 PM.
Registration is also open for the Port City Brew Bus tour on March 26th. Enjoy a tour of your local breweries in the comfort of their mini bus, with roundtrip transportation from Leland's Walmart shopping center. More information and registration is on our website calendar.
The NBNC is a fun social club to volunteer with and our Nominating Committee is seeking individuals who may be interested in bringing their skills and talents to a Board position for next year. Several positions need to be filled and the duties of each position are detailed in our Bylaws found on the home page of our website. Training by the previous officer will be provided as well as a Desk Guide for reference. If you are interested in more information, please contact our Committee chairman, Paul Antsen or Membership Director Karen Small. Their phone numbers and emails can be found in the Directory online or send a message through the website's "Contact Us" on the homepage. You may be new to the area and this is a great way to get involved!
