A Message from the President

Dear Friends of the League,

The Junior League of Johnson City is a training ground for the next generation of female leaders, community activists and volunteers, and I am glad that you are interested in our organization!

My introduction to the League was as a child attending meetings and events with my mother who was an active member (and a sustainer to this day!).  Her servant leadership and the leadership of other women in the League throughout the years paved a way for my generation to continue to become effective, trained volunteers.  Working together for a common goal, training ourselves and others, and giving back to our community through hours of service and fundraising, motivates myself and so many other women to strive for the best.

Since 1947, the League has been a vital part of the Johnson City community. We have helped establish major community agencies such as Watauga Mental Health, HandsOn! Museum and the Children’s Advocacy Center. Recently, we have donated $45,000 in the last three years to the Prescription Drug Abuse and Misuse Working Group.  In the 2017-2018 League year we adopted a new impact statement that drives our initiatives throughout the community.  “The Junior League of Johnson City is raising awareness, gathering information, and educating women and the community regarding women and children’s health and well-being.”  The Junior League of Johnson City is passionate about serving this need in community.

The advancements we make are done with pride and excitement because we know it is to serve a bigger picture and to make a difference in the lives of others. If you would like to connect with women of similar interests or if you would like to take part in a collaborative partnership with our organization, please contact me! We invite you to participate in our work! For 71 years, the League has served as a catalyst for lasting community change, and we look forward to continue this legacy for many more years!

Regards,

Lindsay K. Grogg
President 2018-2019
