Before Rosie the Riveter flexed her muscles to inspire millions of American women during World War II, the women of the Junior League of Evansville already had been hard at work for decades.
This year, the JLE celebrates 84 years of community outreach — from fundraising to volunteerism. The JLE recently donated $2,500 to the Boys & Girls Club of Evansville, and the women are a regular volunteering presence at Evansville Living Idea Homes. “Wherever the help is needed,” says Stephanie Morris, the JLE president, “we go there.”
During the month of April, purchase a $25 Experience Evansville card and shop ‘til you drop. This shopping event, in which more than 90 local merchants offer a 20 percent discount to cardholders, raises funds for JLE’s charitable projects.
