The Junior League of Anniston-Calhoun Inc. started its 2013-2014 year off with a bang, welcoming new members at the annual provisional brunch/retreat Aug. 24 at the Peerless Grille in Anniston.

The provisional (new member) class consists of 42 women, making it the largest provisional class since 2008.

Joining the ranks of the lovely ladies who don’t mind rolling up their sleeves to get the job done are new members Lorena Amaral, Lindsay Barton-Tyson, Brittany Dunn, Holley Fenn, Cayce Grimes, Michelle Hatala, Karen Jinks, Bri Kelly, Lisa Ritchie, JoAnn Tyson, Mildred Watson, Raeann Bailey, Maggie Beam, Megan Brightwell, Katy Cox, Amy Daley, Kimberly Davenport, Tiffany Edmondson-Maddox, Alyssa Enzor, Tammy Ford, Laurie Freeman, Hayley Freeman Loeken, Michelle Fuller, Yolanda Green, Haley Gregg, Amy Huff, Laura Jones, Lyndsey Key, Regina Kilgore, Elizabeth Kirk, Laycie Lambert, Kellie Lawler, Cassie McCord-Brock, Holly McCormick, Laura McWilliams, Alicia Orman, Tina Roberts, Brooke Sparks, Blair Steffens, Lindsay Ward, Kristie Warren and Paisley Wilkins.

These fantastic women have committed themselves to promoting volunteerism, developing women’s potential and improving their community through effective action and the leadership of trained volunteers.

As part of the League’s Adopt-A-School partnership, the 2013-2014 JLAC provisional class will help implement an anti-bullying program for fifth and sixth grade girls at Weaver Elementary School.

The Junior League is excited to have such amazing women joining in their focus area of “healthy lifestyle choices in children.”

The ladies of JLAC say that the organization’s 22nd year is shaping up to be productive and fun. For community partnership donor forms for you or your company, or for more information on membership or about the Junior League of Anniston-Calhoun, please visit www.jlanniston.org.
