>Join the Krafters Klatch to Support Community Projects!

>The Krafters Klatch, a part of the North Carolina Cooperative Extension, invites all those interested to attend one of our meetings on the third Wednesdays of the month.

Our meetings begin at 10am in the meeting room of the Cooperative Extension located at 300 Industrial Drive.  

Each month we host a program which is informative and interesting to all. Past programs have been on De-cluttering, Talking Trash (information on our landfill) Life Line, Toys for Tots, etc.

Some of the various community projects we work on are: Soda tabs; greeting cards to make fish for eye exams; coupons for our overseas military; soaps and personal items for the Women’s Shelter; various items for the Waccamaw Boys & Girls Home; non-perishable food items for the food bank; making of fidget quilts for nursing home residents; making of breast pillows for Cancer patients; plus many more.

Our program for April will be a Confederate/Yankee cook-off. 

If you are interested in using your time to help us help our community, please come to one of our meetings.

For additional information, please call Donna Page 635-2146 or Mary Murphy 635-1205.

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.
