2018 President’s Note
One of the many things I have learned throughout
my experience in the Junior League is that this is an organization that
empowers women... it trains us to be better versions of our self. In this
organization, we are surrounded by amazing women that want to do good and
become better... perhaps better at building relationships, better at performing
community service, or better at learning a new skill. Each year we get to choose
how we want to help the league grow. The best part is that with whatever we
choose, the league supports us. Although I am extremely excited for the two
years to come, my concern was that I wouldn’t be “good enough” to do the job.
With that being said, I realize now that my new role
as president isn’t about already being good enough to do the job, it is more
about becoming it.
This year, I have chosen the theme to be, “Moving Mountains,” which is inspired by the quote, “You have been assigned this mountain to show others it can be moved.” We have an exciting and challenging year ahead; we are taking on our next mountain in the form of a new project entitled “Girl Power” while we continue to climb our way to the top of our current project “Fueling Kids.” Given the success of our fundraisers this past year, we are going to be tackling twin peaks as we continue to do both of our large fundraisers, Festival of Trees and Bourbon Ball. We will also be formally adding mini fundraisers to our trek to help contribute to the more direct needs in our community. I am committed to being your fearless leader these next two years as we work our way to the top. I have no doubt that the Junior League of South Brevard, Inc. will be moving mountains for many years to come!
