President's Message

Rose MacNeal

A Happy Ending!

Dear CWF Sisters,

It is hard to believe that it has been a year since I took on the role to lead this amazing group of women! Looking back, I am so glad we made it through despite the challenges we were faced with because of the pandemic.

There is a saying that “the real happy endings come after a story with lots of ups and downs.” I have definitely experienced some ups and downs.Through it all, our dedicated board members stood by me and supported me. We tried to make the best with what we were able to do given the circumstances. Even if only through Zoom, we were able to bring you speakers that I hope helped to educate, empower, and encourage you.

Although my term is ending, it does not mean I will not be around. As I assume the role of past president for one additional board term, I will do my best to help guide our new president, Nelda Coats. You can rest assured that Nelda will do a great job as she takes on the role. I am excited to see what Nelda has in store for us as we begin our new year July 1. I hope that you will continue to be an active member of Coastal Women’s Forum and join us for our kick-off meeting in August. I know we all missed the networking at our monthly meetings. We will hopefully return to a more normal format having both day and evening meetings each month—following COVID protocols, of course.

I look forward to seeing you at our year-end meeting/Hat Social on June 3. Everything will be coming up rainbows! You can decorate a hat, a mask, or both. This is sure to be a fun evening for all of us!

In closing, I would like to say that I am so proud to be a member of this incredible organization, and it has been an honor to serve as president this year! I knew from my second meeting I attended back in February of 2017 that CWF is an amazing group of powerful, strong women that I wanted to be a part of.

Signing off one last time--continue to stay safe and healthy!

All my best,

Virtual Meeting Sponsor

Thank you to our June Meeting Sponsor

Carrie Gallagher

As a nonprofit organization consultant, I regularly collaborate with 501C3 leaders and staff. Recently I consulted with Craven-Pamlico ReEntry Council, the Neuse River CDC, and the Atlantic Dance Theatre.

One multi-year collaboration is my support of the African American Heritage and Culture Center. This young 501C3 'presents the historic impact and progression of African American heritage and culture in our region'.  

AAHC is currently developing an Oral History Library to capture personal stories and will relaunch its Monthly Community Forums later this fall. Upcoming is recognition of JUNETEENTH, a national celebration of the emancipation of formerly enslaved individuals.

Local celebrations begin June 11 and conclude on June 20. Watch for information about local, regional, and state JUNETEENTH events on social media and in the press. 

Contact AAHC with program ideas or questions or your online pledge of support at www.AfricanAmericanHeritageandCulture.org. Contact me directly at Carrie.Gallagher@gmail.com.

Board Notes


Current Open Board Positions for CWF 2021-2022

Vice President

Membership – 2 positions

June is an exciting month for the CWF Board of Directors! It is the time to thank all of our board members who have served us in the current year and to welcome all those who will serve in the year to come.

As your president-elect. I am in the process of putting my Board of Directors together for the 2021-2022 fiscal year.

Have you thought about serving on the board? It's an opportunity not only to serve but also to get to know others in CWF on a more personal basis. We are such a wonderful group of women, and I know when I joined the board it opened opportunities not just for my business but also for friendships.

Please consider serving this year. Give me a call or shoot me an email and we can meet for coffee, lunch, or just have a nice chat to discuss openings.

My cell is 252-639-1616; nelda.coats@movement.com

Thanks so much,

Nelda Coats, President-Elect

Just Chillin' Yacht Charters 

Just Chillin' Yacht Charters is pleased to announce the addition of two other vessels to my AirBnB (Bed and Boat) portfolio. The "Tipsea Tiki" is a 34' Luhrs Motor Yacht which sleeps two and can be rented privately for overnight stays. The 45' "Knotty Buoy" Motor yacht can sleep 2-4 persons and features a large upstairs flybridge for excellent viewing of beautiful sunsets, also rented privately. And of course, the Mad Hatteras 70' Motor Yacht, which started this all, features 3 staterooms with private attached baths and 70 feet worth of yacht! It is shared with other guests and myself and is large enough that there is privacy for everyone.

Staying on a yacht is much more fun than staying in a hotel room! Invite your next guests to check it out or indulge yourself for your special occasion like birthday or anniversary. Contact me at 252-469-7523 or email me at justchillinyachtcharters@gmail.com. You can find the staterooms on AirBnB.

 Unleash your inner boater!
