Another Impressive Year From the JLC

Columbia, SC Should Be Proud of Its Junior League

The Junior League of Columbia gathered at the University House at Williams-Brice Stadium to celebrate their ’08-’09 accomplishments tonight. They had a lot to celebrate.

Congratulations to Bett Williams and the outgoing board members on another job well done. The new board has large shoes to fill. I know President-Elect Townes Denemark and the new board are poised to take large steps in the upcoming year.

Awards were given out to very deserving recipients. While I don’t have the list in front of me at the moment, I do know the recipient of the award that’s close to my heart. Congratulations to Adrienne Coleman as she is the years recipient of the Kinsey Black Jones Award.

This award is given specifically to an outstanding 1st, 2nd or 3rd year “Active.” From what I’ve heard, Adrienne deserves this for her efforts throughout the year.

As they called her name I was proud to watch her receive her plaque and “dues” check. It makes me even happier to know how proud she is to have been recognized. Congratulations Adrienne!

The most impressive moment, is to see the $$$ amount the League raised throughout the year. Would you believe over $270,000?! Believe it. Even in today’s financial climate the hard working women of the League raised this enormous amount of money.

Congratulations JLC!
