Club President’s Message
We have welcomed Spring to New Bern, North Carolina and rolled the clock forward. The weather is getting warmer and our next meeting will be April 14 at 7:00 PM at the Gazebo, weather permitting, as well as on Zoom. The state of North Carolina has increased the capacity for outside meetings, so we will be able to have all attend in person. Our guest speaker will be Tammy Rodriquez, a New Bern Visitor Center Representative.
We will be using our new sound system for this meeting; I want to thank Jules and Tony Tauber for allowing us to borrow their unit for the meetings at the gazebo.
We have begun the work on creating a new more modern, secure, and easier to use website for the membership. We will give a status update at the meeting.
Our activity director, Randy Bogle will provide the latest updates on the activities. Cindy Harrington and Joanne Bogle will provide the latest on the upcoming social events.
We will also continue to provide updates on what is happening in New Bern for April. The big event I hope everyone plans to visit is The Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall. It will be open to the public April 8 – 11, 2021 in Lawson Creek Park.
In order for the Newcomers to continue operation next year, we need candidates for the Board of Directors- President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Activity Director, Social Director, Membership Director and Communications Director.
