Welcome to the website of the Oriental Woman's Club (OWC) established in 1916. We are located at 1007 Gilgo Road, Oriental, North Carolina.

We are a non-profit organization made up of women of all ages, races and religions, who share a common goal: to work together to improve our local community, socially, physically, culturally. This year we celebrate 105 years of service to our community, supporing the social needs and education of our county.

We credit our longevity to our hardworking, determined group of women and our successful growth to the quality and character embodied in every single member. We’re an organization with a strong purposeful commitment to our community which fosters a culture of personal growth, empowerment and teamwork while giving back to our communities. We promise to provide inspired volunteer opportunities with heartwarming and rewarding benefits.

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.

Our meetings are open to anyone who wishes to visit or join. Look forward to meeting you at our meetings.

OWC President
