Welcome to the website of the Oriental Woman's Club (OWC) located in Oriental, North Carolina. We are a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization established in 1916.  This year we celebrate 102 years of service!

We have recently reorganized and refocused on our original purpose:  to respond to the needs of people through community service and to offer opportunities for growth and development to members. Our 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 us compassion, kindness, understanding, appreciation, and gratitude.

Our general meetings - open to the public - are held the first Tuesday of each month, September-June at 1:00 PM at the OWC Clubhouse, 1007 Gilgo Road, Oriental. (Check the calendar for June and December lunch meeting times.)  The Club has five divisions: Garden Club, an evening group, Ladies of the Neuse (LON),  Arts, Education, and Home LIfe.

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.
