>We’re Bear Town Bear Hunting!

>Attention all River Benders!

We are hunting for donations from community residents to purchase a bear to represent River Bend during New Bern’s 300th Anniversary.

We could “bag our bear” if one hundred donors join us in our hunt and donate just $30each, but donations of any amount will be gratefully accepted.

The deadline to order an unpainted “bare” bear is this October so we must act NOW.

Please make checks payable to:

New Bern, NC 28562

For questions or more information, call: Mary at 635-3040 or Barbara Maurer at 633-9430

About New Bern Now
Editor-in-Chief, Wendy Card, founded New Bern Now in April 2009. There were a number of reasons she developed the website. While stationed in Washington DC, she had 30 days to transfer to Naval Hospital Cherry Point and didn’t know much about the area. She was frustrated because there wasn’t a central location on the Internet for information about New Bern. Wendy retired from the Navy in Oct 2007. When our economy dived, she was trying to find her way in life and decided to give back to the community by creating a website that provided a “One Stop, Information Shop” to help people find out what’s happening in our community along with creating a free business listing to help business owners who couldn’t afford to advertise.
