On behalf of the Junior League of Anniston-Calhoun, it is my pleasure to extend a warm welcome to you. I hope this message finds you and yours well.
When looking ahead to the future of our League, it’s important to reflect on where we’ve been. The past few years have been a rollercoaster ride in all of the ways that our world has changed around us. Now, I don’t know about y’all, but for me personally, the loss of connection has been the most difficult obstacle to navigate.
Author Susan C. Young once wrote that “Staying connected and getting reconnected feeds the flow of goodness which empowers our humanity.”
Now that we seem to be on the other side of COVID, I really would like to focus on connecting and reconnecting with our members and our community.
“The Association of Junior Leagues International, Inc. is an organization of women whose Mission is to advance women’s leadership for meaningful community impact through volunteer action, collaboration, and training.”
The above statement reflects the connections we have with our Junior League sisters– connections with more than 125,000 women in 295 Junior Leagues worldwide. Connections not only here in the United States, but in Canada, Mexico, and the United Kingdom. But most importantly, connections right here in Anniston-Calhoun and the surrounding North Central Alabama area.
I encourage you to come connect with us and with your community through meaningful community impact, promoting voluntarism, and developing the potential of women. If you were once a member and drifted for whatever reason, please reconnect with us. We are truly “Better Together” and we miss you!
In Junior League Anniston-Calhoun’s 31st year, it is my absolute honor and privilege to serve as your President during the 2023-2025 League years. I look forward to supporting and working alongside you all, and toward building a deeper and more meaningful connections with one
another AND our community.
Now, let’s go change the world!
