I’ve been trying to let my readers know a little bit about me, you know the basics a husband, two boys, dogs and my fabulous day job. More about the husband, two boys, and dogs in another post.
My evenings are spent doing volunteer work for the Junior League of Winston-Salem (JLWS). I have done a placement in the Children’s Museum of Winston-Salem, created social events for our members, and worked on our shopping fundraiser Boutique to name a few placements. I have enjoyed each one.
The Junior League of Winston-Salem is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. The Junior League of Winston-Salem just celebrated its 90th year. The JLWS is the oldest Junior League in North Carolina and has a started many of the community institutions in our city.
I first moved to Winston-Salem in the summer of 2003 and joined the league that fall. I had always been involved in my community whether it was in high school or college. So when I moved to my husband’s hometown I needed to find my spot. The Junior League gave me my spot. The JLWS has given me the tools I need to be a positive force within my community. I have been able to take the training from the Junior League and be a positive volunteer in other organizations that I care about in Winston-Salem as well.
