This past weekend, the fall New Member class participated in the Annual JLG Road Rally and saw the lasting impact of Junior League of Greenwich projects first hand. Members of the class learned about the history and impact these projects have made in the community. The Road Rally was developed in 1996 by Junior League of Greenwich members to demonstrate the tremendous reach of the JLG throughout Greenwich.
At each project site visited in the Road Rally, experienced members shared the history, challenges, and accomplishments for that particular project so that the vibrant history of the Junior League of Greenwich is passed to each New Member class.
The Road Rally’s extraordinary itinerary visits at least six sites where participants get out of a caravan of cars to see and hear about the projects that the Junior League of Greenwich has played a major role in designing and establishing. This year’s sites visited were Children’s Day School, Kids in Crisis, Greenwich Skate Park, Boundless Playground at Bruce Park, the Bruce Museum, and the Greenwich Pool in Byram Park. While the JLG’s role may no longer be directly visible, many of the services that have touched the lives of Greenwich residents were conceived, initiated and implemented by the League.
