MAKERS Women Who Make America
MAKERS is a landmark digital and broadcast initiative from AOL and PBS showcasing compelling stories from women of today and tomorrow. A 3-hour documentary “MAKERS: Women Who Make America” will premiere on February 26, 2013 8pm ET.
The upcoming 60 Years: A Black & White Charity Gala is a special anniversary celebration and fundraising event for the Junior League of Ogden and our many community projects.
Founded in 1953, the inaugural class of the Junior League of Ogden included the names Kiesel, Lindquist, Nye, Peery, Pingree, Scowcroft, Wattis, Becker, Bennion, Browning, Dee, Eccles, Glassman, and Goddard amongst others.
At the anniversary celebration sponsored by Stephen G. and Susan E. Denkers Family Foundation, guests will enjoy dinner featuring local food, hosted bar, entertainment and a live/silent auction while we pay tribute to our founding members and celebrate JLO’s accomplishments over the past 60 years.
As a League, we’re serious about combating the epidemic of childhood obesity that is raging in all developed countries, and right here in our community. Each year the Junior League of Ogden holds a Kids in the Kitchen event to teach local school-age children about nutrition and making healthy lifestyle choices.
Garden plots for the 2013 season are now full! Thank you to everyone who purchased and/or donated a plot! If you would like to be put on a waiting list (in case someone abandons a plot, or if we decide to put a new area of the garden under cultivation) please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Oasis Community Garden Project is an integral component in fulfilling Junior League of Ogden’s mission to improve its community through effective action. The 1.7-acre garden is located at 2445 Monroe Blvd., and features open space, teaching gardens, community garden plots and a gathering area for group functions.
