Junior League of Hamilton-Burlington marks 80th anniversary

Community Sep 05, 2014 Hamilton Mountain News

To many people the Junior League of Hamilton-Burlington is a women's group that sponsor the fabulous Holiday House Tours each November.

But it is really much more.

For the past 80 years, the Junior League has been part of an international network of women developed to lead and contribute to positive change in our community. As the group celebrates its 80th anniversary we want to share information about this wonderful organization.

The concept of the Junior League started in New York City in 1901 when debutantes took their nosegays (bunches of flowers) to area hospitals and realized there were many other ways to help in their community.

Times have changed and so has the Junior League.

Since 1934, the Junior League of Hamilton-Burlington has donated over $l.5 million to Hamilton and area projects, with significant financial contributions to Ronald McDonald House, the Ontario Breast Screening program, the VON Respite Centre and the RBG to build the Nature Interruptive Centre to name a few.

In addition to financial support, the group offers the expertise of well trained  volunteers.

In addition to their work in the community, Junior League members have the opportunity to meet others with similar interests and learn skills and leadership development that can boost confidence and enhance their careers.

For more information, attend the Junior League of Hamilton-Burlington’s next information night, Sept. 16 at 7:30 p.m. To register, call 289-337-9526.
