The Junior League of Poughkeepsie and the Mid-Hudson Women’s Bar Association have teamed up in their efforts to once again help the community they live in! We are looking to raise funds to create and frame an exhibit of students’ art work in the waiting areas of the Family Court building. We are planning on having about 70 prints displayed on the second and third floor waiting areas. They have been working with The Art Effect (formerly Mill Street Loft), in compiling the exhibits, and look forward to beautifying the courthouse!
Please donate what you can to help us raise the funds necessary to have the artwork digitally printed and then framed! Our goal is $1300. Please give what you can and make the Family Court a less dreary place for those who have to enter on a daily basis.

Thank you to Spectrum News for highlighting our Cinderella’s Closet event!
It’s the season when many are beginning to focus on what to wear to prom this year. Students in Poughkeepsie were able to browse a wide selection of dresses Sunday thanks to the return of the Junior League’s annual Cinderella’s Closet. Photojournalist Doug Short takes us to the Italian Center to see if local high schoolers were able to find the perfect dress.
The Junior League of Poughkeepsie has adopted a new Diversity and Inclusion Statement. It states:
The Junior League of Poughkeepsie welcomes all women who value our Mission.
We are committed to inclusive environments of individuals, organizations and communities.

On Sunday, March 18th, Provisionals, Actives and Sustainers all gathered together at the home of our gracious host Susan Moore for our Annual Irish Coffee Event! A wonderful time was had by all, feasting on some delicious food and drink, hearing about all the great events coming up for the JLP, and ending the afternoon with a wonderful sing-along led by Active member Caroline Blackburn!
Brrrrrr! Junior League Members, along with their family and friends, came together as the JLP Team to help support and raise money towards the Special Olympics! Some were brave enough to jump in, while others were there as their cheerleaders (and towel holders!).
