Welcome
Welcome to the website of the Oriental Woman's Club (OWC), located in Oriental, NC. From its beginning in 1916, the Club's aim has been to be an asset to our community and to work for its betterment in every way. Priorities have always been youth and education, health and welfare, community improvement and beautification.  These priorities are addressed directly, through such activities as our scholarship programs or road cleanups,and indirectly by raising funds for and awareness of other organizations in the community. OWC is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt corporation and a member of the national and state General Federation of Women's Clubs.

Meetings for 2014 are held six times during the year on the first Tuesday of the month in February, April, June, September, November and December. The General meetings start with a social and get to know you time at 1 P.M., followed by a business meeting at 1:30 P.M. In April we will have a Salad Luncheon celebrating Federation Day at 12:00 P.M. In June we honor student scholarship winners by holding a celebration luncheon at 11:30 A.M. In December our Christmas luncheon is a fundraiser for scholarships. All meetings are held at the Oriental Woman's Club located at 1007 Gilgo Road, Oriental, North Carolina.  Meetings are open to the public.
