                                 President’s                       For many of us, volunteerism is a tradition that we grew up. In my
                                 Reflections                  case, it was so much a part of my life growing up, that I never actually knew
                                                              my parents were volunteering. How was I to know other parents weren’t
                                                              coaching Little League teams, teaching Sunday School, helping to establish
                             Mandy Eberwine their community’s volunteer rescue squad, or serving on various committees
                                                              and boards?! To this day my parents are still actively volunteering and making
                                                              a difference in their community.
                                   In the early years, much of my parents’ volunteer service was associated with activities we could all
                              participate in as a family. Between their terms of service as team mom, coach, umpire, concessions chair,
  and league commissioner, I spent so much time at the ballpark through the years that I still have people come up to me and share
  their memories of “the little red haired girl” running around—and yes, my mother did convince us it was fun to pick up trash! Every
  year at Christmas, I can’t help but reflect on the memories and fun times we had as a family selling popcorn to benefit the rescue
  squad at Coleman’s Nursery’s Winter Wonderland. Our parents’ commitment to volunteerism left a lasting impression on my sister,
  brother and I—we have each found ways to serve in our own communities.
       As members of the Junior League of Hampton Roads, we have all chosen to make volunteerism a part of our daily lives. And
  as members of a training organization, we are all learning skills—often through on-the-job training—that can be used to serve and
  lead other organizations in the community. We should all be very proud of that fact! We should also strive to pass on the legacy of
  volunteerism to future generations and do whatever we can to ensure they understand the importance of our volunteer work.
       This year’s National Volunteer Week is just around the corner on April 10-16. On behalf of everyone in the community whose lives
  we have touched, I would like to thank each of you for your volunteer service—you have truly helped the Junior League of Hampton
  Roads make a difference!

    The Girls of Excellence Committee has been busy over the last
couple of months! The transition from South Morrison to Sedgefield
Elementary has been seamless. Committee members were on hand
to present the first group of Sedgefield 5th grade girls with their GOE
t-shirts and lanyards at their organizational meeting on November
15, 2010. On January 24, 2011 the committee held the Kids in the
Kitchen Fitness & Nutrition program. The girls had a great time getting
a fantastic workout doing Zumba! They made and enjoyed two healthy
snacks, and learned about nutrition from a dietician. The afternoon was
topped off with a fun nutrition skit performed by high school students
volunteering with the GOE, one of whom is actually an alumna herself.
     On February 7th, the GOE committee held the first ever Science
Fun! event. The only SOL the girls didn’t beat the boys’ scores in the
last school year was Science--the staff at Sedgefield and the GOE
committee are determined to change that! Science Fun! was a science The girls making PDA’s “Paper Bag Data Assistants” to use to collect data

Committee chair Sophie Davis along with committee members Allison Hund, Lisa Moore and Shannon Renfro would like to thank all of
the volunteers who helped make the first two events so successful!

  On Saturday, April 16, 2011 Junior League of Hampton Roads members will have an opportunity to see first hand the impact JLHR
has had on the Hampton Roads Community.
  New Members, Actives, and Sustainers are invited to a special tour of past JLHR projects. We will meet at Junior League Headquarters
for a continental breakfast at 9:30 AM. There will be a quick orientation During the breakfast and we will hear from special guests
whose lives have been touched by our organization.
   Sites on the tour will include: the Peninsula Fine Arts Center - Hands On Exhibit for Children, The Virginia Living Museum,
Transitions Women’s Shelter, Peninsula Food Bank, and Downtown Hampton Child Development Center.
Members will not only see the sites first hand, but will also hear from a staff member regarding the long-term impact these past
projects have had on the community. We also hope to have Junior League site hosts on hand—-women who were involved in
each project who can tell the stories of the projects from a Leaguer prospective. The Junior League of Hampton Roads has made
a tremendous impact on the Peninsula and we hope from participating on this tour members will appreciate the legacy of our
organization.

If you are interested in attending the tour, have an idea for anothersite, or would like to be a JLHR site host please contact Eleanor

The Sustainers began their 2011 Spring calendar with a Luncheon and Fashion Show at the James River Country Club on Thursday
March 17th. A great group of Sustainers enjoyed a salad lunch while viewing wonderful fashions from The Dandelion in Irvington, VA.
Owner Sheila Brown provided us with an array of fashions for many different occasions. From casual and fun to cocktail and dressy
our models strutted their stuff to the delight of the Sustainers. The JLHR models who graciously volunteered their time and beauty to
make the fashions look so great were Martha Field, Sarah Huddleston, Sarah Hutchens, Carrie Karnes, Diane Koun, and Carol Taylor.
