Grant recipients and SJWC officers at our 2016 appropriations night
The Simsbury Junior Woman’s Club (SJWC) held their annual appropriations coffee reception on Friday May 8th at Freemason Hall to award grants to fifteen (15) area non-profit organizations located in Simsbury, the Farmington Valley and Hartford. The appropriation coffee reception gave SJWC members the opportunity to thank these organizations who do so much for our community, as well as to learn more about their current goals and missions.
In 2016 Simsbury Junior Woman’s Club was able to gift $8,000 to these organizations through our annual Luminary Night fundraiser, which takes place on the first Sunday of December. The purpose of Luminary Night is to both raise funds that can be appropriated back to deserving non-profit organizations as well as to bring neighbors together as they light luminary candles throughout the community to celebrate the start of the holiday season.
