President's Message: Possibilities for a Brighter Future

December 2020

As we approach the holiday season, we all experience that feeling of excitement you get from being with family and friends.  This year may be different for some of us. Given what is going on in the world today, you may not be able to visit with family and friends.  For many this will be the first time in their lives they will not be able to be with family during the holidays. Although that will be hard, we all know it is important now more than ever is that we stay safe and healthy as we make it through these difficult times.  It has been an unusual year, to say the least, but I honestly believe that there will be a brighter future for us all! 

You all recognize that Coastal Women’s Forum focuses our efforts on networking, education, and empowerment.  Each year, however, we have one philanthropic activity during the month of December through the President’s Charity. The current president selects a non-profit to feature and encourages members to contribute with their dollars and their time. This year, I am pleased to announce that Promise Place is the CWF President’s Charity. When I chose this year’s President’s Charity, I know that there are possibilities of a brighter future for those served by Promise Place.

Promise Place’s mission connects directly with CWF’s theme of Prism of Possibilities, and I know that through a partnership with Promise Place, our support will help sustain their mission to  build safer communities free of sexual violence through education and advocacy in Craven, Jones, and Pamlico Counties.

I hope you will join us at our Daytime Zoom Meeting on December 16 where you will hear directly from Candi Parker, Community Educator and Volunteer Coordinator, of all the good work being done at Promise Place.  You will have the opportunity to support Promise Place with your financial contribution via our website.

So, with hopes for a brighter future, I wish you and your families peace and much love during the holiday season!

All my best,

Some are new to New Bern and are seeking ways to establish themselves within the community. They are all energetically involved in pursuing their personal passions and often committed volunteers for the benefit of the community.
