If you weren’t able to visit the Hall of State when the Junior League of Dallas’ Centennial Exhibit was on display during the State Fair, you’ve got a second chance to see it. Now through Thursday, February 17, “Legacy of Leadership, Devotion to Dallas” will be located on NorthPark’s Level One near Bread Winners Café and Bakery.
The exhibit showcases the JLD’s 100-year history with documents, memorabilia and photos.
According to Centennial co-chair Andrea Cheek, “The Centennial team and our members have been working passionately to bring the history of the League back to life through this special exhibit, There are so many stories to be told, and it has been inspiring to see all of the work the Junior League of Dallas has done around Dallas over the last 100 years.”
Highlights of the collection JLD’s 9M hours of volunteer hours provided for more than 200 agencies (i.e. Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center, Dallas Museum of Art, Promise House, Notre Dame School, Scottish Rite for Children, etc.), Dallas Signature Projects like Kids in the Kitchen, and the Centennial project Juanita J. Craft Civil Rights House rehabilitation.
As Centennial Co-Chair Margo Goodwin said, “We are so grateful to NorthPark Center for hosting this exhibit as we commemorate our Centennial and look forward to partnering with our community to build a better Dallas for the next 100 years.”
And during the run of the exhibition, JLD will hold its annual Community Volunteer Fair on Saturday, February 12, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It provides North Texans with a chance to learn about area agencies supported by JLD and volunteer opportunities.
