Welcome to the website of the Oriental Woman's Club (OWC). We are located at 1007 Gilgo Road, Oriental, North Carolina.

We are a 501( c) (3) tax exempt organization established in 1916. This year we celebrate 103 years of service to our community.

The Oriental Woman's Club's vision is Women Together, Making a Difference. We are women committed to connecting and making a difference in our community through our service and outreach programs.

The OWC is comprised of five programs: Garden Club, Arts, Education, Home Life, and Ladies of the Neuse (which is a program that meets at night expressly so that women who work can still actively participate in our club.)

We strive to have educationally, informative and fun meetings each month. It is our hope that our continued efforts to respond to the needs of our community are reflected in all our activities throughout the Club. Our focus this year is Restoration because after hurricane Florence that is what is foremost in all our lives.

Our meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month at 1pm at the Oriental Woman's Club Clubhouse. Our meetings are open to all. Hope to see you at one of our meetings.
