Tryon Civitans collect over a “Ton of Sugar” for Religious Community Services!

Pat Drake was excited to announce that the Tryon Civitan Club beat their goal to collect a “Ton of ‘tweetness” during their 5th Annual Sugar Drive last month!

The Tryon Civitan Club in conjunction with the UPS Store and Kincaid Family Dentistry held the sugar drive to benefit the Religious Community Services (RCS) last month. Pat Drake was excited to announce that they beat their goal of a “Ton of ‘tweetness”! The grand total was 2,285 pounds.

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

The Tryon Civitans give special thanks to the “great community that we live in and also give thanks to several of our local restaurants that donated 375 pounds”. – Pat Drake

They’ve come a long way since their first year when the club collected 500 pounds of sugar.

Special thanks to Pat Drake and the Tryon Civitan Club for all you do for our community.

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.
