Done in a Day Projects
Making an Immediate Impact
Done in a Day projects focus on short, intensive community activities that are typically completed in a single day or weekend. The Done in a Day Committee has some great projects planned for the first half of 2014. Check the Upcoming Events calendar below for current listing and links to sign up. We hope you'll join us as a volunteer!
National Rebuilding Day at the Gatehouse, April 26
Our League has been involved with National Rebuilding Day for many years and this year our “project site” will be our beloved Gatehouse. Roll up your sleeves to help us get organized and make a great impression by redecorating and fixing up our very own Gatehouse. We'll be cleaning, painting, organizing and fixing. We need lots of hands to make light work, so bring your friends! Sign up for the morning shift or the afternoon shift.

Winter 2014 Piper
THE LEADERSHIP AND MEMBERSHIP ISSUE
It’s time to “lean in” to the Winter issue of Piper, which is all about making the most of your League membership and acquiring the tools, confidence and support to make the leap into a leadership role. In this issue, you’ll find:
- Interviews with six past and present League leaders who share what spurred them to take on greater responsibility, what they learned along the way, and how those skills have translated into non-League life.
- An insider’s guide to maximizing your years of JLPA•MP membership.
- A sneak preview of the League’s Reference Library.
And, of course, our usual roundup of the League events and member news that kept us busy over the past few months (remember that casual little gathering at the Four Seasons in December?).
