A United Force for St. Louis!
Happy 105th Birthday to the JLSL! As we embark on the 2019-20 JLSL year, we are embarking on the start of our next 105 years as a united force for St. Louis. Throughout our history, the JLSL has had our hand in so much and there is so much more we will accomplish.
We are a united force for St. Louis! These simple words say so much. We are a united membership of over 500 dynamic, powerhouse women who put their heart, soul, time, and talents to work to make a better St. Louis for tomorrow. We are united in our mission – promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving our community!
We are a force – nothing gets things done like the women of the Junior League. We are busy and we are doers. This past August, we celebrated the 10th Annual Strong Women & Families Health & Resources Fair (SWF). This annual event is the cornerstone of what we do in the community. It brings together the best of on-site services and resources for our neighbors in the College Hill neighborhood. We all know that accessibility in St. Louis is often less than optimal and SWF seeks to break those barriers down by bringing these organizations together in one place.
The leadership team of the JLSL (the Board of Governance and Management Group) spent time together to map out the action plan for 2019-20 based on our 2018-22 Strategic Plan. We are focused on using our Strategic Plan as our baseline while we work to achieve those goals. These goals are the cornerstone of what our organization endeavors to achieve over the next few years. I encourage you to review our Strategic Plan to understand how our day-to-day work rolls up to achieve those bigger goals for St. Louis.
Yours in service,
Carrie Gallagher Crompton
