10th Annual Duffest

Saturday May 5th, 2012, The Duffy Field Residents Council will be having its 10th Annual DUFFEST.

Included in this year’s events will be the addition of a new and exciting event for middle school aged children. That’s right you guessed it The First Annual DUFFEST Spelling Bee! We hope to get as many as ten children to participate and try to become the first Spelling Bee Champ in DUFFEST History!

Trophies and Prizes will be awarded to all who participate and the event will be hosted by the Craven Community College Student Government Association.  We’re expecting a big crowd to come cheer on their favorites so be part of the excitement and watch as we add this educational component to an already family fun filled event.

There will be free rides and lots of fun for everyone. Music, Live Bands and Exciting Speakers are just a small part of this City invited Spring Time Festival. If you would like to have your middle school aged child registered please contact Van Cuthbertson via email or call him at 252-639-7525 from 8am-5pm, and he will be happy to get your child signed up.

Hurry though only 10 children will be accepted. For more information on all the events at DUFFEST, please contact Nannette Sanders-Cobb via email or call her at 252-638-7360.

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.
