Happy November everyone!
The JLGS league year is underway, with two virtual GMMs in the books!
In this "new normal" we are grateful that we still have an option for getting some work done! COVID-19 may be making our usual activities a challenge, but we remain committed to our mission and are still working diligently to help our affected communities. We have quite a bit planned as we move into 2021 and cannot wait to share it with all of you!

Our Leadership Training is always evolving! Are you or someone you know an expert in your field? Click here to contact us about presenter or speaker opportunities at upcoming GMMs!
Our Little Red Bookshelf has "gone mobile"! Book deliveries have gone to Brooking's Elementary School, Girls Inc. and Chess Angel Promotions.
Members are clocking volunteer hours at
The Food Bank of Western Mass and so far, our sorting has helped feed over 300 local families! 
Recent efforts also include:
Girls, Inc. to
Fill-A-Van with canned goods, providing school supplies to our friends at the
Boys & Girls Club and, working with area partners
through the holiday months!

Jess McArdle, VP of Community
The finance committee is working on getting a few fundraisers scheduled!
Keep your eyes out for:

 A Somers Board and Brush Event
A Hammer and Stain Event
A Painted by the Shore Event
Virtual BINGO

And don’t forget to utilize Amazon Smile when shopping!
We'd also love for you to start thinking about ordering Gift Cards through JLGS

Sarah Fontaine, VP of Finance
Our first new member meeting was held via zoom in October, and our next meeting is scheduled this month!
We are always looking for ways to support our current members, especially during these difficult times. Even though we cannot be together, we are creating new ways to interact safely. Keep an eye out for holiday plans, coming soon!

Sarah Shaw, VP of Community
