Fall 2014 Piper

Gold Is the New Black

Happy 50th, Junior Leaguers! Piper is kicking off our Golden Anniversary year with a look back at "Where We've Been as a League," and let me just say, it's amazing how much we've achieved in that time! 

In this jam-packed Fall issue, you'll find:

  • Reflections from former community project partners on the League's lasting impact
  • A stroll down memory lane with four past JLPA-MP Presidents
  • Some fascinating "Shop" talk with the incomparable Robbie Mellows
  • An account of the history of Piper from two '70s-era insiders
  • An inspiring timeline charting some of our many milestones and accomplishments over the past five decades

Check out those features and much more HERE! (For those who have requested a print copy, it should arrive in 2-3 weeks.)

But before you dive in to the rest, you might want to skip straight to Page 6 for an important Save the Date from our Gala Committee. This is sure to be an event we'll all be talking about for the next 50 years!
