In 1935 a group of dedicated women came together to address civic, social and cultural needs in the Nation’s Oldest City. Through world wars and personal struggles, national triumphs and family milestones, the Junior Service League of St. Augustine has triumphed in remaining a strong organization with a heritage as rich and vibrant as the historically unique community that they support. The League is committed to the traditions and legacy of their organization in promoting the privilege of volunteerism in St. Johns County. Never ones to be afraid of a challenge, League members’ past and current projects include beginning and directing a speech and hearing clinic, organizing and managing a thrift store, renovating and refurbishing our St. Augustine Lighthouse and Museum, and conceptualizing and directing Willich Kids Bridge Family Visitation Center. Through the dedication of their members, both active and sustaining, along with the generous community response they continue to receive, the League has supported the aforementioned endeavors, both financially and emotionally with great pride. And so it is with honor for our traditions and joy in our accomplishments that we ask you to join with us as we proudly celebrate over eighty years of service.
