The mission statement of the Junior League of Baton Rouge says it all:
“The Junior League of Baton Rouge is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.”
Since the River Road Recipe cookbook collection began in 1959, combined sales of our four beloved cookbooks have earned more than $3,000,000 to fund League projects in the Baton Rouge community! This is truly an amazing legacy. This feat would not have been possible, however, without the “effective action and leadership” of our volunteers, in particular, the past Chairwomen of the River Road Recipes Committee.
Friday, March 10, we celebrate our past River Road Recipes Committee Chairwomen with a luncheon at Galatoire’s Bistro from 12-3 pm. We look forward to honoring these innovative and dedicated women and their collective leadership over the past 58 years. From the bottom of our hearts and the hearts of the hundreds of thousands in our community who have been positively impacted by League projects, thank you!
