Changes to the Board

Later this month the Board will vote to fill a vacant Board position with an interim. Sarah Kruger will be leaving Burlington for her husband's job, and has had to resign from her position as President-Elect/Executive VP. We are very sorry to see her go! Until the Nominating and Placement process this winter, Corresponding Secretary Monica McFarland will fill the role as Interim Executive VP. This winter a new President-Elect/Executive VP will be nominated and voted on by the membership at the Annual Meeting in April. Thanks to Monica for stepping into this role until then.

DIAD (Done-In-A-Day) Projects

We have our first Done-In-A-Day lined up for the fall! We are headed to the Vermont Food Bank for a Saturday Sort-A-Thon on October, 8th from 8am-12pm at their warehouse in Barre.

Members who want to carpool should meet at the Park in Ride in Richmond at 7am that morning. We have 8 slots and you can sign up on our website. This is a popular project so sign up early, as we can’t bring more than 8 members due to limited space at the warehouse.

Members are encouraged to wear JLCV Hats and/or Shirts

DIAD Committee
Look out for an email in August about getting together for our first meeting to plan our Done In A Days for the Year.

Please reach out to Katherine Birrow (DIAD Chair) or Jill Everett (VP Community Projects) with questions!

Ronald McDonald House

Thank you to all of you who have provided a meal for RMH this summer!

We are looking into the fall I am looking for someone to cook a meal on the following days:

▪ September 1st: ______________
▪ October 6th: _____________

If interested please email Rebecca Brinkerhoff.

Remember, if you have signed up to provide a meal, we have budgeted for reimbursements of up to $30 per meal. To be reimbursed for your contribution, please fill out a reimbursement form and mail it to: JLCV Attn: Treasurer PO Box 4418 Burlington, VT 05406.



This year we are offering JLCV T-Shirts (or hats if you'd prefer) so we can be easily identified as we work!

The picture to the right is the back of the shirt and a small JLCV logo will be on the front on the chest.

The league will subsidize much of the cost so that either will be available to members for only $5. Please plan to bring payment to the September meeting.

Please specify what size you'd like us to order for you here.
