About the Author:

The Junior League of Memphis has always been an organization that isn't afraid to roll up its sleeves and get things done.

They have been hard at work in Memphis for almost 100 years. In 1922, a group of 17 women gathered with the purpose of starting a local branch of the Association of Junior Leagues of America. Their first order of business was to approve donations to a local orphanage and service to the blind. All motions carried:$100 to Cheerfield Farm; $25 to the blind; $15 to a local orphanage. The commitment to the community and women as catalysts for change continues with 1,600 members, representing one of the largest groups of volunteers in our city and Junior Leagues in the world.
