JL, Phi Mu and DAR

I am so excited about next Tuesday. I have my first Junior League function, a mixer for provisional members. See, there are not a lot of people our age in this community and the Junior League here apparently has several women that are my age. So not only will I get to meet several new people (and hopefully Husband will too), but I'll get a chance to volunteer and help the community at large, while teaching Lallie about the virtues of helping those less fortunate. I'm super excited about it. Those that know me personally will not worry about my being nervous as I am a true people person and would talk to a lightbulb if it would talk back! I just need to stir up my closet to find the perfect outfit (or maybe go shopping!)

In addition, I finally was contacted by the Palm Beach Phi Mu Alumnae Association and they will be starting up their season very soon and should be emailing me with their meeting schedule. I've had trouble contacting all these groups these past few weeks, but have forgotten that it's summer, and everyone breaks for the summer. So, my fall schedule is starting to get packed. That and the DAR (Daughter's of the American Revolution) has their first meeting in September. I am required to attend two meetings to become a member.

So, it's going to busy for us in this household, but we're a social family and I've been wanting to get involved in some groups for a while. I really want to volunteer and give back to the community and to my Lord and Savior. I'll get into my story about being a Christian later, but in a nutshell, reading the Bible is unfortunately not my strong and giving back are my strong points and I am so very excited about the volunteer opportunities that I will be presented with in the near future!

Have a great day everyone!



  1. Sounds like you've got some busy nights & weekends coming up...but all in the name of fun & giving!!

    Reading the Bible is not my strong point either...

  2. I am winding down my JL career. It is a great organization and I have been fortunate to be involved for the last 8 years. You will enjoy it.

  3. Volunteer work is so incredibly important.

  4. You are going to be a busy, busy girl! Sounds like fun!

  5. OOH, I am so excited you are joining the Junior League! I LOVE it and I know you will too!
