Membership in the Junior League of Lexington

Ask any Junior League of Lexington member why she joined the organization and each will have a personal answer.  One may say it was a family legacy, another might say it was to meet friends or get involved in their community, while yet another wants to learn leadership skills to give back.  The Junior League of Lexington offers opportunities for all of this and much more.

For the women of the Junior League of Lexington, it is a desire to better themselves and their community.   Through this unity of purpose, this unique group of women has had, and continues to have, a significant impact on the bluegrass area.
