President’s Message

Now, more than ever, the need for inclusivity and togetherness is vital –– both as an organization and as a community. During the Junior League of Huntsville’s 71st year, the logistical aspects of how we will fulfill the League’s mission will look a bit different. However, the physical distance between us will not measure our ability to collaborate and work together to impact the greater Huntsville area. The League is part of a network of one of the oldest, largest, and most effective women’s volunteer organizations in the world, encompassing more than 140,000 women in 291 Leagues in four countries – and we remain committed to developing the potential of women, promoting voluntarism, and improving the community through the effective action of trained volunteers.

As we navigate this challenging year, let’s embrace the power of ONE. Instead of making this just another year, I challenge us all to see it as ONE more opportunity to grow. ONE more opportunity to serve. ONE more opportunity to make a connection. Maybe even ONE more opportunity to find a new passion. During our 71st year, let’s lean into the newness and change that each day brings–– we might just find the ONE spark that ignites the flame!

As this year unfolds, the Junior League of Huntsville will continue to seek creative opportunities that will allow our organization to meet both our community’s needs and those of our membership. The League is dedicated to serving our area through continued partnerships, such as the BIRTHday Books project with Huntsville Hospital Foundation and food packing with Children’s First. And, we have exciting new partnerships, including a venture with The Catalyst Center for Business and Entrepreneurship and our support of the GrowCove Universal Playground.

Every time you share the work of our members, make a financial contribution, express an interest in membership or share our membership opportunities with others, promote our fundraising events, or connect the League to potential partnerships you take an active role in propelling the mission of the League forward.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your support of the Junior League of Huntsville!
