My greatest memory and accomplishment as a member of JLCR and the most fun I have had in a long time was all due to JLCR’s involvement in the Ladies Titan Tire Challenge.

Seventy-five years after its formation, the Cedar Rapids league continues to make an indelible mark...

I joined Junior League three years ago in order to meet new women outside of my other circles.  There aren’t words to describe how unbelievably talented the women of Junior League of Cedar Rapids are.  They are leaders, role models, humanitarians, and volunteers who believe in making a difference in the lives of others. My most significant Junior League experience was the role I played in Ladies Titan Tire...
