What we do
Our programming changes from year to year based on the interests of current members. Examples of service projects
we have undertaken in recent years include:
We work closely with the Simsbury Public Library children’s room to put on programs such as our annual Teddy Bear Sleepover
- We distribute Meals on Wheels
- We support Simsbury Senior Center events
- We run activities at local retirement homes
- We hold an annual children’s fair called the Ladybug Bash
- We collect gently used stuffed animals that are rehabbed for first responders to give to children in crisis situations.
Who we are
Our membership is comprised of women from a variety of backgrounds. We are all women 18 years and older, and our members include stay-at-home moms, women in the workforce, and students. We live in Simsbury as well as neighboring towns like Canton, Avon, Granby and West Hartford. What we all have in common is a desire to volunteer some time and energy to help those in need in our community. Some of our members have lived here for years, while others are new to town.
As a Junior you become part of a wonderful group of like-minded people who have fun doing great things for our neighbors in need. As a bonus, we develop amazing friendships within the club that last for years. Oh, and did we mention that we have fun?
