The Junior League of Cedar Rapids legacy is expansive throughout our community and we continue to make a difference with the dedicated work of our active and sustaining members. But nothing is more exciting than bringing in new members to our organization. This year is on pace to be our largest new member class ever! Thanks to the hard work of our Member Recruitment committee led by Mandy Ferrante.
Welcome Night on Aug 18th had 41 potential new members in attendance. There was a tremendous amount of positive feedback from potential members excited to join. The key to this year’s success is due to the many social opportunities hosted by the League this summer. There were summers socials at Butcher Block in June and Meet Me at the Market in July that helped us stay connected with potentials new members over the summer and keep them engaged while waiting to start the new member year.
The new member retreat on Sept 22nd kicked off planning for the 3rd annual Holiday Bazaar. For more information about this year’s bazaar click here. We would love to have as many of our actives, sustainers and community members attend as possible.
