Our community programs have been very busy this League year! I am proud of our community programs and all that they have accomplished (photos follow this post).
Our Raising A Reader committee has been encouraging the kids at Cone Elementary to read with their families. They will be ending the school year with a graduation celebration.
Friends Against Fraud did an excellent job educating the elderly about financial abuse. They still have three events remaining for the League year.
Community Housing Solutions did an outstanding job this year, as they made home improvements for a few elderly people in our community. They used power tools and their strong muscles to get these projects done.
Grandparents Raising Grandchildren worked hard as they worked with both the grandparent population and the children. This year they hosted a jingle bell ball, a fall festival, and a career day. Each event was a success.
Kids in the Kitchen has had an incredible year by encouraging and educating kids and their parents about healthy food choices.
Food Assistance has one more Saturday event for this League year. They have been busy preparing bags of food for the elderly in need.
Adult Center for Enrichment spent the first part of the League year researching fitness routines for elderly members at a group respite site. The later part of the year, they have been working hard to find and make fitness videos to pass on to the local respite sites.
I would like to say Thank You to every Junior League member that volunteered with our community programs; we greatly appreciate all of your help!
