Our 2014-2015 Junior League year is well underway and we’ve got some amazing events lined up for you this year. Our Internal Communications, Gala and Fun Run Committees are especially hard at work, planning to make this year the best year yet for our members and community neighbors.
Before you head off to tonight’s October General Membership Meeting, check out our lineup of what’s in store for you this year, including a very special treat at the end of December (hint, it includes animals).
Yes, it is for provisionals only. Our newest members-to-be will enjoy an exclusive tour of our community partners, Sarah’s House and the Center of Help. The day begins with some scrumptious little breakfast treats at the Junior League office, courtesy of our Consulting Committee.
All members–new and not-so-new–are invited to attend our first Happy Hour event of the year. Our October gathering will be held at the newly opened Blackwall Hitch in Eastport. The food and ambiance alone are worth stopping by. But more importantly, fellow League members will be there, which is reason enough to come hang out and enjoy a refreshing post-work cocktail!
It’s a People Party! But you need to be a new active or transfer to attend (or a member of our 2014-2015 board)–not that we don’t love all of our members equally. The Consulting Committee invites all first and second year actives, as well as new transfers, to gather for a little wine and socializing. Our guests of the hour will also have the opportunity to get to know members of the Consulting Committee and Board.
It’s almost time for our annual 5K event! We’re excited to be back again this year at Quiet Waters Park, hosting our walk/run event for League member families and non-member families in the Anne Arundel County Community. Invite your neighbors, co-workers, friends, frenemies, and anyone else you can think of. The more the merrier!

That’s right–we’re marching in the Military Bowl Parade! But that’s not all, the Budweiser Clydesdales will be back again this year for this family-friendly parade. What better way to enjoy the festivities than to be in the festivities. And who knows, maybe you’ll get an exclusive chance to take a selfie with one of those famous animals. Either way, come out Dec. 27 and help us represent our amazing League as we march from downtown City Dock to the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. Spouses, partners, children, and other members of your family are invited and encouraged to march with us! More details will be released next month, including hints on a very special surprise too!
