County Commissioners and representatives from The Junior League of Las Vegas turned the Welcome to Las Vegas sign red in celebration of the organization’s 75th anniversary here.
“The women of the Junior League of Las Vegas have made a real difference in Southern Nevada,” Commissioner Tick Segerblom said. “Since 1946, the Junior League’s members have spent more than 1.1 million hours volunteering in our community and raised more than $1.5 million to support important causes here.”
“The Junior League of Las Vegas was instrumental in the bringing HELP of Southern Nevada, The Shade Tree, the Discovery Children’s Museum and many other projects to Clark County,” Commissioner William McCurdy II said. “Through their volunteerism and advocacy, the women of the Junior League have been making our community stronger for 75 years and will continue to for the next 75 years and beyond.”
The Junior League of Las Vegas is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. The organization was first established as the Service League of Las Vegas in 1946, and later recognized by the Association of Junior Leagues International, Inc. as Junior League of Las Vegas in 1971.
