Rolling 4 Rett
Our newest group of girls, the JrJLO held their first board meeting in early October. At that meeting, JrJLO President Hannah Montgomery presented her idea to take Rett Syndrome awareness viral. She presented the idea and the board voted unanimously. Thus began the Rolling 4 Rett social share challenge.
The JrJLO girls called out several of their friends and First Lady Michelle Obama. The girls hope to raise awareness for Rett Syndrome, a form of autism that effects mainly girls and to raise funds for finding a treatment. Donations should be made directly to Girl Power 2 Cure. Read more.
Donate and then Roll 4 Rett, record it and challenge your friends to do the same!
Jr. JLO Launch
Jr. Junior League of Ogden (JrJLO) is a brand new organization for girls ages 10-16 years. Members will share in the joys of volunteering, develop leadership skills, and improve our community.
Jr. JLO is about preparing the next generation of women leaders in our community at-large and offers volunteer opportunities, leadership training and empowers young women to be proactive problem solvers. Our first group of Junior Junior Leaguers launched in September of 2014. Since then, the girls of JrJLO have formed their own board, with a structure much like the regular JLO, and will be volunteering and working on projects of their own.
In the last month they have helped with our Get Fresh event, worked a community booth at the Harvest Moon Festival and held a social for their group to learn about each other’s leadership styles and put together ideas for their future projects. We are excited to see this group of young gals so eagerly participating in their community. Come to our social Thursday August 27, 2015 at Oasis Garden to learn more about Jr. Junior League and how you can get involved!
