Our Proud Heritage
The Narberth Civic Association (NCA) was founded in March 1914 and has been an integral part of Narberth’s history ever since. On October 15, 1914, the NCA began publishing Our Town, the local newspaper. It continued throughout the Great Depression and two World Wars, and was a forerunner of the Main Line Times. Recently, the NCA made available an online archive of Our Town so that everyone can enjoy and learn about Narberth’s special history.
The NCA was also instrumental in planning and developing the Narbrook Park neighborhood in 1915. This model community is now on the National Register of Historic Places.
Our Present and Future
Today your Narberth Civic Association continues to be of service. A non-profit, non-partisan organization, we sponsor events to promote community and education in an informal, interesting and enjoyable way. We host the Candidates Forums, featuring candidates for local office. NarbEarth Day, our signature environmental “living the green life” festival for all ages has been held every April since 1990. We get together yearly at our increasingly popular Winter Potluck to “shake off those winter blues.” We have taken the initiative to stream Borough meetings and post them to our YouTube channel in order to server our core mission.
- We serve as an information source and facilitator of civic dialogue.
- We encourage transparent government and citizen involvement.
- We stage and support community events and volunteer projects.
- We also have fun! (at events such as NarbEarth Day, the Winter Potluck, & the Narberth Ghost Walk)
We are your neighbors and friends volunteering on your behalf, helping you to better know your community and stay connected. We always need volunteers for events and to assist with our live streaming. We encourage you to contact us.
Board meetings are held the second Wednesday of every month (except for July & August) at 7pm in Narberth Borough Hall on the 2nd floor. Members, future members, and the public at large are welcome at Board meetings. Our general membership meeting is held every year in the fall. Officers and members of the Board are elected at the annual meeting, where the Civic usually offers pizza and beer and an informative presentation to members.
