The Junior League of Evansville has been making a difference in the community for 95 years.
The women's organization kicked off 95 straight hours of volunteering with a party at Wesselman Park.
The event brought together current and past members.
Mayor Winnecke stopped by encouraging today's Junior League to remember the generations that have come before and the generations that will come after them.
Over the last century, the league has been instrumental in projects that Evansville Residents use often.
"CMOE, the Wesselman Woods Nature Center, and Playville," recalled JLE President Heather Garrison. "Volunteerism, helping our community, and empowering women is the main focus of the Junior League."
Currently, JLE is working to fight childhood hunger in the city's Promise Zone and promoting career growth among women.
Around the clock for the next 95 hours, league members will be taking part in various volunteer projects. Those projects are in partnership with about a dozen area organizations including Albion Fellows Bacon Center, Feed Evansville, and the Evansville Rescue Mission.
Members are also raising $95 each as part of the anniversary. You can help support the JLE's ongoing efforts to improve the community by donating on their website.
