As many of you know I am an active member of the Junior League of Charlotte and proud of it!
For the last 2-years I've served as the League Historian which has been a fun job but a lot of work too!
My tenure as Historian is coming to an end though and so has the big project we've worked on the past 2-years!!
It all came to fruition over the weekend at the Grand Reopening of the JLC Building at Freedom Park.
The building just underwent a much needed renovation and everyone was invited to a reception Saturday night to see the finished product.
I wish I had before pictures but I don't.
The reception was lovely with food from Dean and Deluca.
Part of the renovations was adding a bar and butler pantry.
Even husbands tagged along for the big reveal of the building.
All new furniture throughout.
And, the women's bathroom?
Before it was just a 2-stall bathroom that was less than desirable.
Well, it was expanded and there's even a dressing area now!!
The kitchen was expanded too!
It was more or less a closet before. Now it's HUGE with new cabinets and top of the line appliances equipped for larger events!
My committee's contribution to the newly renovated building?
Well, now we've completed a board for each decade the JLC has been around.
It's basically a high-level overview of what happened during that particular decade and includes a few pictures.
It was definitely a labor of love to get all of these completed.
I even took it upon myself to 'cold call' former Presidents for information and pictures that I couldn't find anywhere else.
One of our League member's created the design and put it together with the information I gave her.
Everyone enjoyed getting to see the new building while having a few cocktails and catching up.
Even the President's wall got a refreshed look!
So, there you have it!
My mission has been accomplished!
Milestone boards for the 20's, 30's..
40's, 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's and 2000 are done!!
I feel so proud and relieved all at the same time!!!
