A Message from the President

20130718_080842-1-1[1]Welcome to the Junior League of Kingston!

For over 90 years, our organization of trained volunteers have recognized and addressed the needs of the families in our community.  We began many services the community has since adopted as its own to make Kingston a wonderful place to live:

Super Saturdays at the Kingston Library:  The League began this program for area children to have a free and educational experience at the Kingston Library.

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA):  Created in 1989 by Members of the Junior League of Kingston, this organization gave children a voice in the judicial system to ensure that children removed from their homes landed in a safe, nurturing environment.

Kinderland at Forsyth Park:  In 1991, the Junior League of Kingston, in conjunction with many volunteers and community organizations, built a Leathers & Associates-designed playground to provide the children of our area a fun and safe place to play.

Habitat for Humanity Home:  In 2000, this “Home for the New Millennium” was built by the Junior League of Kingston to give a local family a fresh start in a stable, well-built home.

Our current major project is the redesign and build of Kingston Kinderland II.  The League is again partnering with Leathers & Associates to create a new playground comprised of longer wearing materials.  We had the best consultants on the design of the playground – local schoolchildren!  Among the new components featured are: ADA-compliant structures, historic components, and tactile sections that will provide our children with a free, fun, and safe environment to play and learn.

Our League boasts over 100 Active and Sustaining Members.  Through volunteer efforts, these women have been trained as leaders in the community to effect positive change.  I urge you to explore our website to learn more about our mission.  Thank you for your interest in what we do!

Warmest regards,

Melissa Riley
President, Junior League of Kingston 2013-2015
