Enjoy Lunch with the CWF and Guest Speaker New Bern Firefighter Elona Fowler

Coastal Women's Forum Dinner at The Chelsea Restaurant in New Bern, NC
As Coastal Women’s Forum continues our journey of Charting a New Course this year, our April daytime meeting will be Celebrating Women First Responders!

Please join us on Wednesday, April 20 from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at The Flame Banquet Center, 2301 Neuse Blvd., New Bern, to hear from New Bern’s only woman firefighter, Elona Fowler.

The meeting includes a buffet lunch, and the cost is $25 per person. You do not have to be a member to attend your first two meetings, but we ask that you become a member after that. Registration is required to attend.

Here is some information about our speaker, Elona Fowler. After succeeding as the only woman in her fire academy program and completing a very strenuous application process, Elona joined the New Bern Fire Department three years ago and will tell you she has never looked back!
