Now in our 41st year, EAGC serves the greater Exeter community by encouraging an interest in all phases of home gardening and by promoting civic beautification and the conservation of natural resources. We offer a wide array of gardening-related activities including monthly programs, design workshops, and field trips. Our club plants and maintains the Exeter Bandstand display and the Veteran's Memorial Garden at Stratham Hill Park in addition to offering Beautification Mini-Grants to help improve the appearance of local public spaces.
The Exeter Area General Federation of Women's Clubs (EAGFWC) is proud to be part of GFWC and to represent the Exeter area of New Hampshire.

Offering men and women the opportunity to give something back to the SAU 16 communities. Our programs continually change to meet new needs and greater demands, but our mission has never wavered: "We Serve." Lions volunteer efforts go beyond the support of vision, hearing care and diabetes, to addressing unmet health and education needs. We have given a lot of time and financial effort to help build and maintain Camp Pride which was built primarily for Diabetic youth. We were chartered by Lions Clubs International in 1927.
The St. Vincent de Paul Society, Exeter NH Conference serves the needs of the poor in Exeter, Stratham, Newfields, E. Kingston, Kensington and Brentwood NH. The Conference operates an area-wide Community Assistance Center and food pantry that serves those communities as its primary focus.

We also connect with the many other agencies offering similar services in our area including the network of St. Vincent de Paul Societies that exist nationwide.
