Aug. 1, 2014. The Boone Service League, a women’s service organization in the High Country, invites women interested in membership to attend the group’s first monthly meeting of the 2014-15 year on Tuesday, Aug. 5, at Deerfield Methodist Church in Boone.
Light refreshments and fellowship begin at 6:30 p.m., followed by a business meeting at 7 p.m. Child care is available. The league typically meets the first Tuesday of every month.
Established in 1957 as an auxiliary women’s organization to the Boone Jaycees, the Boone Service League is open to women ages 21 and older living in the High Country area, including Watauga, Ashe and Avery counties.
Each year, the Boone Service League awards grants to High Country organizations and presents scholarships to high school seniors. Boone Service League members also hold food and supplies drives, volunteer for the Meals on Wheels program and provide financial assistance for families in crisis.
“One of the things I like most about Boone Service League is that we give back to our community in a variety of ways,” said BSL Membership Chair Leah Grove. “We gather donations for everything from school supplies to diapers to side items for Thanksgiving dinner, but members are also able to donate their time as a way to give back.”
The Boone Service League openly seeks new members who are interested in providing much-needed service while meeting new friends. For more information about the Boone Service League, visit www.booneserviceleague.org or find the organization on Facebook at www.facebook.com/booneserviceleague.
