Tryon Civitans 5th Annual Sugar Drive for Religious Community Services (RCS)

“Radio Laura” Johnson had the pleasure of interviewing Pat Drake, Publicity Chair for the Tryon Civitan Club about their sugar drive during the month of June. Listen to the interview:

The Tryon Civitan Club in conjunction with the UPS Store is having its 5th annual sugar drive to benefit the Religious Community Services.

RCS uses 2,500 pounds of sugar a month. Last week, RCS’s Executive Director told Pat Drake that they were out of sugar in their pantry.

Their goal this year is to collect a ton of sugar (2,000 pounds) during the month of June. Last year they exceeded 1,900 pounds.

You can make a difference by dropping sugar off at the UPS Store at 1822 S. Glenburnie Rd. 252-637-7500 or at Kincaid Family Dentistry, 635 McCarthy Blvd., 252-636-0011.

Special thanks to Pat Drake and the Tryon Civitan Club for all you do for our community. Thanks, Laura, for all your hard work providing “community radio segments” on Radio Free ENC’s WNOS 105.9FM and 1450AM.

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.
