Prism of Possibilities
President's Message: We are Coming Round the Mountain!
It’s funny, but for some reason the old children’s folk song, She’ll be Coming Round the Mountain When She Comes, sticks in my head when thinking of where we have been and where we are heading. We seem to have made it through the hardest times during the pandemic where we were unable to meet up with each other and network the way Coastal Women’s Forum sisters usually do. With more of us getting vaccinated, the potential of being able to get together in person is now something we can look forward to doing again starting with our April daytime meeting! I don’t know about you, but I will be glad to break out my spring clothes and show off my painted toes in my sandals!
I am not going to lie; it has been a difficult year. Working with our Program Coordinators to come up with speakers to help engage our members was not an easy task when you think of how we had to put it together doing it via Zoom. But you know what? We did it! We managed to have a monthly speaker sharing different topics. We learned about Promise Place and what services they offer. We learned about different types of meditation and how to manage stress. We had a few interactive demonstrations on how to stretch and relax practicing yoga, what to plant in our gardens, and even one on how to cook special treats with our St. Patrick’s Day leftovers! Speaking of cooking, I hope that you were able to utilize our Quarantine e-cookbook. There are some different dishes for all to try—and cocktails too! This will remain a permanent part of our website so no need to print anything out.
Although none of us will be “riding six white horses” to our meetings, I do know that we are all excited that we can meet again in person. I hope that you will be able to join us as our CWF sisters get together to network, educate and empower each other!Continue to stay safe and healthy!
Coastal Women’s Forum (CWF) welcomes smart, savvy women of all ages, interests and abilities...
Women just like you!
We invite you to join us at our monthly lunch and dinner meetings,

Coastal Women's Forum Membership includes:
Career and self-development
Encouragement from women who have been there and done that
CWF Members are women who own businesses, or are following careers in the for-profit and non-profit sectors. Other members are blissfully enjoying retirement or raising families. 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.
Become a CWF member and share our mission of Networking, Education and Encouragement. Browse the website and understand who we are and what we are all about. But the best way for you to know us is to meet us in person. Sign up to attend a luncheon or dinner and meet the dynamic women of our thriving and constantly growing group.
