Junior Women’s League inches closer to 50th anniversary

ABERDEEN – The Junior Women’s League will close out a 50-year benchmark and start looking toward its next 50 years Thursday, March 21 from 7 until 9 p.m. at the Elkin Theatre with a semi-formal event.
“We plan on featuring the present while spotlighting accomplishments from the past at the event. As far as the future of the club, we want to give back even more and we’ll try to achieve that by doing things we haven’t done before. The club now wants to do as good as its past members have for the last 50 years,” said vice president Abby Lann.
The JWL hosts fund-raisers throughout the year to benefit local entities like the Aberdeen Animal Shelter, the Elkin Theatre, the Care Center of Aberdeen and Pioneer Community Hospital’s Assistant Living.
“What we do now, we want to do even better so we can spread more donations around at the end of the year,” Lann said.
All former and current JWL members are invited to the 50th anniversary event, which features heavy hors d’oeuvres catered by the Cottage Tea Room and flower arrangements provided by Aberdeen Floral and Gift Shop.
“I’m very excited to be a part of this event. I think the social chair has done a great job organizing it,” said president Carla Arevalo.
