Junior Women’s League invites former members to 50th anniversary

ABERDEEN – The Junior Women’s League will take a walk down memory lane March 21 when it hosts “Celebrating 50 Years of the Junior Women’s League” at the Elkin Theater. To properly account for its duration, all past members are invited to the women’s only semi-formal event.
“We want people to realize we’re still making an impact to the community,” said club vice president and social chair Abby Lann.
The JWL has more recently given back by helping with the Aberdeen Animal Shelter, Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry and the Elise Mobley 5K. The club will host an Easter egg hunt March 23 at the Magnolias.
“When I moved back from Starkville, I was asked to join. I was really excited to see people I hadn’t seen in years and it was a good way for me to get involved in my community. When I was young, my mom was involved in everything so it’s a way of following in her footsteps,” said club president Carla Arevalo.
For the upcoming celebration, there will be wine and heavy hors d’oeuvres, in addition to photos and memorabilia from the past. Lann anticipates roughly 200 members to attend.
Anyone interested in joining the club can contact any club member. Those former members wishing to attend the 50th anniversary or wanting to share any club memorabilia can call 436-9296.
