Let's Get Ready to ROCK!

This evening marked the unofficial kick-off of the 2011-2012 JLGWH year.  Gathered at m.marie boutique , active members mingled with wonderful women from our community interested in what membership in JLGWH can offer.  In addition to welcoming potential new members hugs and handshakes were exchanged as members greeted each other after a summer break from the action of volunteering.  President, Jae Lynn Akin, addressed the group with the many benefits of membership in this unique organization.  The hostesses for the evening were the provisional chairs, Holly Hughes and Megan Smith, who will lead the new member group through an exciting year of training and personal development. A very big THANK YOU to Meghan Gullen, JLGWH member and owner of m.marie, for opening her doors to us and providing some awesome coupon incentives for the purchases made this evening.

Interested in learning more about Junior League but unable to attend tonight? No worries. Join us Saturday, August 13 from 1:30-3:00 at The Stable in Lake Alfred for another new member social before the year officially kicks off Tuesday, September 13th at the Chain of Lakes Club Room.

Rock the League!

Are you digging the new background? It seems entirely appropriate for this year's theme: Rock the League! Rock the Community! Rock the Future! Looking forward to a great year with our "Queen of Rock" Jae Lynn Akin.
