President’s Note

Marcelle Griffith Burke

It’s official, the start of another new Junior League year! In true Junior League tradition, the batons have been passed and we welcome another transition of Leadership.

The names and faces may be different, but our mission remains the same. We are ‘one voice’  – united in our love of wanting to make a difference in our community.

We have made many strides in our eighty-two years, and I am excited and proud to represent such a beautifully diverse sisterhood of women.

From the Cox Science Center to Quantum House, The Junior League of the Palm Beaches has a strong footprint in Palm Beach County. This year, we will continue to make strides addressing the needs of women and young girls through The Alliance for Period Supplies at the Junior League of the Palm Beaches and expanding our volunteer efforts and community partner relationships with a focus on Youth Education and Literacy. The needs are great, and we are here for the challenge.

As a member of the non-partisan Junior Leagues of Florida State Public Affairs Committee (SPAC), our Advocacy Committee will continue to monitor legislation and advocate for issues of political importance relevant to our key issue areas. 

We are also very excited about our newest fundraiser, ‘Miles for a Mission 5K Run/Walk’.

The complexities of the past couple of years have us all redefining our definition of ‘normal’. 

As a League, we will continue to adjust if and when necessary, always finding a way to serve and give back.

The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.”  – Coretta Scott King 

Thank you for your continued support of the Junior League of the Palm Beaches.
