Women who would like to make new friends, make a difference in the community through volunteer service projects, and experience leadership opportunities and training are invited to learn more about Junior League of Long Beach (JLLB) at one of three new-member mixers.
JLLB is an educational and charitable organization that has been serving Long Beach since 1931, with the goal of making the community a healthier, more vital place to live. Its members are women who are interested in and committed to voluntarism.
The JLLB’s efforts include providing nutritional information and educational fun at their annual Kids in the Kitchen food carnival, hosting literacy nights and book give-aways at local schools, providing comfort bags for young crime victims, organizing an anti-human trafficking task force, and hosting self-esteem seminars for pre-teen girls.
In addition, members train in group leadership and then have opportunities to use this training to lead workshops for local organizations. JLLB members who are interested in making a difference through legislation work with local and state officials to create laws affecting women and children.
There are also plenty of social events for members and their families, ranging from beach picnics and gondola rides to high tea at Elise’s Tea Room and darts at Joe Jost’s.
Two more new-member mixers will be offered this summer. Women of all ages are invited to attend to learn more about JLLB. All mixers start at 6:30pm. The next one will be Thursday, Aug. 2 at 7591 Carson St., and the last mixer of the summer will be Monday, Aug. 6 at El Torito, 3301 Atlantic Ave.
Those interested in attending should contact Shannon at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (562) 858-7997. More information about JLLB is available at jllb.org .
