Way to Go Tryon Civitans!


New Bern, NC – The Tryon Civitan Club collected sugar from our community during the month of June at the UPS Store, 1822 S. Glenburnie Rd.; Snap 24/7 Fitness, 3960 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.; and Courts Plus, 2911 Brunswick Ave.

The Tryon Civitans exceeded last year’s Sugar Drive Donation to RCS by 200 pounds!

July 12th brought extreme temperatures, but it didn’t stop committed members of the Tryon Civitan Club! They delivered a few pounds short of 1,900 pounds of sugar to the Religious Community Services (RCS)! That’s not all – they also donated a check for $800!

Are you wondering what almost 2,000 pounds of sugar looks like? Check out New Bern Now’s photo gallery to see the pictures submitted by Mack and Pat Drake on behalf of the Tryon Civitan Club.

The Tryon Civitan Club is actively involved in our community! For more information, please visit their website.

Thanks for all you do, Tryon Civitans! And a special thanks goes out to all of those who donated the sugar!
