Cruso Friendship Club
The Cruso Friendship Club was established in the mid 1980s as an extension of the County Homemakers Clubs. When the Homemakers dissolved, the Friendship Club was born. Members host community fundraising events to support the Club's mission to provide scholarships, needs-based assistance, and community awareness in the Cruso/Bethel area. The Club advocates for the Cruso community and it's Community Center to preserve and promote community based programs and relations.
What We Do
The Friendship Club meets the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 6:30pm at the Community Center. Through our fundraising efforts we:
Provide the Jarvis-Alexander Scholarship to 2 Pisgah High Seniors each spring
Provide Needs Assistance throughout the community
Help to maintain the Community Center
Each Tuesday morning, a group of Friendship Club Members meet to piece and quilt on projects for both fundraisers and for charity projects.
We host various Fundraiser Dinners each year, our annual Quilt Show (celebrating 34 years in 2023), and our Fall Craft Sale and Breakfast each October. We are famous not only for our quilt shows, but our BBQ as well.
We invite you to join us at one of our events this year!
