Welcome to the website of the Oriental Woman's Club (OWC) located in Oriental, North Carolina. OWC, a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization federated in 1916, is a member of the General Federation of Women's Clubs of NC ( and the International GFWC (  We are celebrating 101 years of service.

The purpose of Club work is to respond to the needs of people through community service and to offer opportunities for growth and development to members. Priorities have always been youth and education, health and welfare, community improvement, and beautification. These priorities are addressed directly through such activities as scholarship programs, road cleanups, arts festivals, domestic violence awareness, and assistance to those in need at home and abroad; and indirectly by raising funds for and awareness of other organizations in the local and global community. Community service teaches compassion, kindness, understanding, appreciation, and gratitude.

General meetings - open to the public - are held the first Tuesday of most months at 1:00 PM at the OWC Clubhouse, 1007 Gilgo Road, Oriental. The Club also has two divisions: Garden Club and an evening group: Ladies of the Neuse (LON). A bridge group meets weekly and a crafts/handiwork group meets monthly.

For 125 years GFWC and its member Clubs have been "Living the Volunteer Spirit" providing friendships, fellowship, fun, education, service opportunities, personal growth, leadership skills, and endless local and world-wide improvements. Clubs are unified yet diversified in what they do. OWC members are clearly "Women Together Making A Difference" striving to be an asset to their community and working for its betterment in every way.
