Sweet 16 Party Raises $800 for Butterfly Project
At their group Sweet 16 Party, three local teens turned an act of kindness into a generous $800 donation
to The Butterfly Project. Alex Gradkowski, Hannah Fowler and Lexi Holdbrooks arranged a table at their
Masquerade-themed party to accept donations for the project in lieu of gifts. “Instead of people bringing
gifts, we decided to ask for donations to The Butterfly Project,” Alex Gradkowski said. “It seemed like a
great cause.” Guests at the Sweet 16 party raised $800 for this year’s project that will help purchase
accessories and other items for the recipients.

Recently, 91 deserving young women were selected from 11 area high schools by their counselors to
receive a beautiful dress, shoes and accessories for Prom 2007. The Huntsville Botanical Gardens
Nature Center/Butterfly House donated the use of its facilities for the Butterfly Boutique on March 3-4,
where the recipients will shop for their dream gowns donated by the community and local vendors
including: Dillards, Something Blue Too and Madison Town & Country.

The Ultimate Transformation recipients will be announced at the Butterfly Awards Reception on February
22 from 6-8 p.m. at Lockheed Martin. Mayor Loretta Spencer will announce the four finalists and top
recipient, who will have chance to receive college scholarships, lap tops computers and other items to
help in the success of their futures.

The Butterfly Project Committee is still in need of new dressy accessories for the project. If you have
donations, please bring them to the Junior League office. ~ The Butterfly Project Committee

Wish Granters- Huntsville Junior League & Make A Wish Foundation
Camille Gardner helped to grant a wish that every non-profit organization enjoys receiving, money! She
motivated her fellow employees at AEgis to raise over $4000, and the company pitched in the rest to
present a check to the Make a Wish Foundation for $5000. It is amazing what a Junior League member
can do to spread the joys of helping families, especially over the holidays. Many children will be so
excited to have their wish granted thanks to Camille and AEgis! ~ Ginger Penney Liles

You Came and WE HEARD! Speak Out Sessions Feedback:
Are we fulfilling our mission? Mother/Daughter Connection speaks to our mission, Instead of fulfilling community
volunteer hours we are required to be somewhere – too much ways & means, Provisional keeps hearing that we will get
involved but feels no better at volunteering than prior to joining JL, We’re not telling of volunteer opportunities to members
Are we training leaders & what kind of training should we have? Training is specific for placement or committee, Not
enough Leadership training
What do you think about us doing the Spring Market? Good, Excited, Something different, Real positive to get our
fundraising from the community, Some concerns about time of year
What do you think could make the League stronger – make meetings more effective? Not so much banter between
podium and the audience, Meetings are too long, More efficient meetings – one hour or less, Don’t read the League Lines
to the league members at the meeting, Maybe implement the point system, More information communicated through e-
mail & some votes through email (I asked if would be problem if hit with many emails and entire group said “no problem”),
Bring back morning/lunch meetings (could we use member homes or church so no cost), Spend too much time at general
meeting on provisional info, Make meeting more interactive, Make time limit for ideas/announcements, No speakers at
meetings, Need another mystery meeting
How do you feel about your placement experience? Good, Positive, Is Adaptive Horsemanship available next year?,
Open up community impact to more people (one member told at placement not to even put it on the list because newer
members never get it), Good to get newer members to big committees
Do you feel that you have a clear path to give input into the League’s direction? How could we improve? Share
the information from the Speak Out sessions (at meetings or League Lines), No control over where the league is going, JL
is responding to meetings through surveys, Please consider point system for meeting attendance, What is purpose of
meeting? Looked at as social but really just mandatory function
Is the League doing a good job with member retention? How do we do a better job? Depends on who you talk to,
Privileged Active status will help, Bring back the fun stuff – Follies, Fewer events that are Mandatory and not make
everything about money, Flexibility is the key to membership retainment, Members felt that Provisional to 3rd year active
was biggest drop in membership because JL becomes tedious, want to spend more time in meeting than volunteering,
want to volunteer hours than attending meetings (especially those with small children), On-line training possibilities, One
member is moving to Guntersville and meetings are not an option – what is the answer
What are the things standing in the way of this being a much better League? Meetings, Mandatory things/events,
Have a meting option (some day time and some evening), Our own JLH building, Too militant, Try point system, Try
having meetings that are not so long, Analyze why people leave and have we done this?, Time flexibility for meetings,
Need to bring provisionals into meetings easier with a mentor – they are scared attending first meeting
What are your thoughts about the Teen Shelter? Teen Shelter is disappointing and embarrassing – Personally and to
the league, Not really sure why Teen Shelter is shutting down. Will the money go for another Teen Shelter? Embarrassed
that we asked for money and now it is shutting down and we can’t really explain why

     (watch your email and the website for more details!). If you are unable to attend the Placement Fair (or Provisional
     Placement Party), please call or email your Placement Advisor to make other arrangements. REMEMBER… the
     Placement Fair (or Provisional Placement Party) counts as the April membership meeting. If you fail to fulfill
     your Placement Fair/Party obligations, it will count as a missed meeting AND your placement preferences for
     the 2007-08 JLH year will not be considered.
    Look for your Placement Manual in the mail. If you do not receive one, please pick one up at the JLH office.
    Fill out the Placement Selection Form (found in your Placement Manual) after carefully considering your top 4 committee
     placement choices. Fill out your hour log (found in the Placement Manual). The hour log is also available on the JLH
     website (under “Forms You Need”). This version of the hour log will automatically total your hours for you.
    Attend the Placement Fair on April 9 at the JLH office during your assigned time slot. Turn in your Placement
     Selection Form and Hour Log. Provisionals will turn in their placement forms and hour logs at the Provisional
     Placement Party.
    Wait to see which committee you will be serving on in the May League Lines!
    If you are going sustainer, we still want to meet with you briefly at the Placement Fair. Sign up for a time slot with
     your Placement Advisor. Remember, your request must be made in writing to the Corresponding Secretary, Amy
     Harbarger, by April 15.
    If you would like to be considered for a “self-placement,” please email Jennifer Gautreaux at
     for an application. You will complete it and turn it in with the rest of your placement information at the Placement Fair.
    It is your responsibility to sign up for a Placement Fair time either on-line or through your Placement Advisor!
    If you cannot attend the Placement Fair (or Provisional Placement Party), you may call or email your
     Placement Advisor BEFORE the Fair/Party and arrange to turn in your forms. Again, if you fail to fulfill your
     Placement Fair/Party obligations, it will count as a missed meeting AND your placement preferences for the
     2007-08 JLH year will not be considered. Jennifer Gautreaux ~ Placement Chair
