I am honored to serve as the 73rd president of the Junior League of Corpus Christi. I have been a member for 13 years and I am consistently awed by the dedication, creativity and commitment of the women of the Junior League. What began in 1937 as a group of young women forming the Junior Assistance Club has now become a legacy of commitment to our community.
Moving into the new Junior League year, our organization will continue a three year action plan targeting early childhood development, an identified community need. Our programs will focus on literacy, nutrition, cognitive skills and physical activity. As always, member training will remain a cornerstone of our organization.
To sustain our mission, we will continue our well-known fundraisers, Rummage Sale and our Fun Run. In addition, we are excited to introduce our new event, Pitchin’ Clays Trap & Skeet and Washer Tournament to take place this fall.
As we embark on the 73rd year of the Junior League of Corpus Christi, we will continue our history of commitment to our community and development of our members.
With warm regards,
Brooke Thorpe
2016-2017 President
Junior League of Corpus Christi
