The Junior League of Central Westchester (JLCW) invites women living or working in Eastchester, Greenburgh, Scarsdale and White Plains to its semi-annual “Recruiting Coffees” at historic Wayside Cottage on September 16 at 9:30 am and 8:00 pm. 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 informational coffees, 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 and foster life-long friendships with fellow volunteers and members of the community in which they serve.

New members enter a training course where they 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 2015 new member class will participate in a project that will help benefit the local community that the JLCW serves.

“It is a pleasure to welcome a new group of women with a dedication to serving the community in which we all live,” said Alison Messerle, President of the JLCW. “We are a diverse membership ranging from working professionals to stay-at-home moms, all looking for the unique combination of personal enrichment and camaraderie offered through the JLCW. I am excited to work alongside these women, to help them grow as leaders, improve our community and gain new friendships in the process.”

The coffees will be held on September 16 at 9:30 am and 8:00 pm at Wayside Cottage, 1039 Post Road, Scarsdale NY. Women interested in learning more about the JLCW should RSVP by September 14th by email to or phone (914) 723-6130.
