The Junior League of Central Westchester (JLCW) invites women living or working in Eastchester, Greenburgh, Scarsdale and White Plains to its its semiannual “Sip & Swirl” events for interested new members at historic Wayside Cottage on September 22nd at 8pm and September 23rd at 9:30 am. The JLCW is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women by providing leadership training and improving the community through numerous volunteer projects. The JLCW is comprised of diverse women from central Westchester and we welcome the opportunity for women of all races, religions and national origins who are committed to volunteerism to become members.
At the events, prospective members will learn about the JLCW’s efforts to improve the lives of neighbors in need, as well as the activities that support these initiatives, including fundraising and development, volunteer training and communications. Joining the JLCW provides opportunities for volunteers to impact their community in a meaningful way, foster life-long friendships and form professional relationships with fellow members of the community in which they serve.
New members work together to complete a short-term community service project. The short-term projects for new members are designed to help the community, allow members to get acquainted with the JLCW and foster networking between new members. The Fall 2016 new member class will participate in a project that will help benefit the local community.
“As we embark on our 70th year as a positive force for change in central Westchester, it’s an exciting time to become a member,” stated Meridith Alin, President of the JLCW. “We invite all women ranging from working professionals to stay-at-home moms to join this deep-rooted tradition of community impact.”
