Impacting our Communities for 75 years!
The Junior League of The Shoals was established in 1934 originally as the Junior League Auxiliary with 30 women whose major project hosting a ball on November 15th. One year later the Auxiliary and is members formed The Muscle Shoals District Service League. The purpose of this new organization was “to foster interest among its members in the social, economic, education, cultural, and civic conditions of the community and to make effective their volunteer services.”
The Muscle Shoals District Service League was admitted in the Association of Junior Leagues International in June 2006. Through the power of our association, The Junior League of The Shoals will strengthen communities by embracing diverse perspectives, building partnerships and inspiring shared solutions.
The Junior League of The Shoals is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers whose purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. We are proud to have impacted The Shoals and the surrounding communities for 75 years.
Currently we are 215 members/sustainers strong. This year the Junior League of the Shoals distributed $73,600 to non-profit organizations in the community. These funds will go directly toward over 20 projects in the Shoals area. The funds were raised through our two big fundraisers, Apple Annie Day and the Sugar Plum Market. We want to thank all that supported these events to help us raise money for the non-profits!
