New Member Retreat 2021

posted by on


A new membership year brings a new group of women eager to join us on our mission of making an impact in the community for women and children. This year, the Junior League of Norfolk-Virginia Beach welcomed 29 inspiring women. On September 25th, the New Member Committee hosted these women in Virginia Beach for a Retreat. This event teaches new members on the history of our League, its impact in the South Hampton Roads community, and allows the women to meet one another and their mentor. For fun, members played a team-building activity where they discovered that most of them are dog lovers, no one identifies as being shy, and 4 said they are not afraid of anything.

This group of women will work with the American Red Cross for the League’s annual Blood Drive, among other community projects.
