Discover North Baldwin: Civic Clubs & Organizations  

 


The North Baldwin area is rich in community spirit and we proudly demonstrate it through our active community clubs and organizations. Some are civic, others simply gather for the love of their cause.
(In some cases, dues may apply)          


5 Arts Club     

Based in Stockton, this group focuses on five different artistic areas:
     -Literature
     -Architecture
     -Music
     -Painting
     -Sculpture

This group was created by Mr. I.P. Mason in 1925 in order to encourage the appreciation, love and study of the five arts. The club’s motto is “The goo, the beautiful, the true.” The club colors are red, yellow and blue, and their flowers are roses, lilies and violets. They meet monthly.


Bay Minette Beautification Committee

In a mission statement adopted in 2012, the Beautification Committee is dedicated to the improvement of our community.

This small group of dedicated individuals has worked tirelessly in cooperation with the city’s grounds department to stimulate and promote our city’s appearance.

Quilting Club

The Bay Minette Quilting club originated in 2001 under the loving guidance of Kelly Johnson and her mother, Eunice Johnson. While the club was started with a handful of residents such as Aurdra Davidson, Mae Long, Jessie Lou Durrant, Merytle Dock to name a few, it  has played home to up to 15 members but now exists with only 4. This group of extraordinary ladies is more like a family than a club. They have been through much these past years and continue to lovingly work on eachother’s project more as a labor of love than anything else.

They gladly welcome anyone interested in joining the club, especially a novice. They teach the basic of stiches and work on the most complex of pieces. You don’t have to know how to sew to join.

Each member prepares their quilt top at home as other members help at their meetings to finish a project which may take 4-5 weeks. They take turns bringing in their own tops and new comers rotate in as each member takes a turn.

They have even played host to out of towners who come from afar and quilt togther. Always looking for new friends, they encourage people to come by, pull up a chair and enjoy the artistry of quilting. There are no dues and there is no need to call, just come on over!
