The North Carolina EastEnders fan club consists of hundreds of avid EastEnders fans from across the state. We get together several times a year to share our enthusiasm for Albert Square. We have meetings in Charlotte and the Triangle (Raleigh/Durham).

December UNC-TV Update!
We have an updated list of upcoming specials and premiers on UNC-TV. Included is new info about "Lark Rise to Candleford" and "Foyle's War," as well as some schedule updates for UNC-MX. You'll also be able to see Season 1 of "Downton Abbey" again.
Christmas Cards for John & Enda Bardon: Do a Christmas Mitzvah!
Once again we'd like to brighten the holidays for John and Enda Bardon. For those who don't know, John (aka "Jim Branning") had a stroke about seven years ago and ever since, we have been sending him birthday cards in the summer and Christmas cards in December to let them know they aren't forgotten. They have both had a tough road since his stroke and they really don't hear from anyone else, and these batches of cards mean A LOT to both of them, so I hope you'll all join in again.
Please send your card to John and Enda in care of D. Gilbert. She will be mailing them to their home in a nice (hopefully) big package. Here is the address:John Bardon

* Please send them so that she receives them by December 10, so there is enough time to ship them to the UK. Thank you!!!
NC EastEnders Fan Club Luncheon Recap - November 9, 2013
It was a beautiful, crisp fall day when 43 eager North Carolina EastEnders fans gathered for lunch at the Golden Corral in Durham. As usual, we had a private dining room and filled it nearly to capacity. We were thrilled to see so many longtime friends, and it was also gratifying to welcome several newcomers. From what I could tell, the "newbies" fit in immediately, and the event was even more enjoyable thanks to their participation.
Naturally, the first thing on the agenda was food…and lots of it! No one leaves the Golden Corral hungry, and no one leaves it thinner than when they arrived. We're not sure if it was specifically in honor of Claire Meyerhoff or not, but the restaurant currently boasts not one, but three, "Wonderfalls": Chocolate, Sweet Caramel, and White Chocolate. The biggest wonder of all is that several diners made it through the day without a single stain on their white EastEnders tee-shirts.
