OUR MISSI ON

The Junior League of Dallas 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.

Elizabeth Dacus It has been my great privilege and honor to serve as the 2020 - 2021 President of the Junior League of Dallas. Despite the unprecedented time, the League continues to be tirelessly committed to our mission: to promote voluntarism, develop the potential of women and improve our community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. While much has changed since our founding 99 years ago, the League continues to be a place for women to lead, learn and serve.

Letter from the Dallacite Team This has been a year of searching for ways to keep in touch and continue our mission despite being unable to meet face-to-face. The League has taken this challenge in stride by conducting all meetings virtually and allowing members to view meeting replays as they find convenient. The League plans to continue this virtual access in some fashion moving forward, which will help members juggle their home life, work life and League life. We applaud the League for the steps it has taken to keep us all connected and active in the Dallas community. The forethought that went into the League’s plans for this year is impressive. Before COVID-19 struck, the League planned to complete a long-awaited renovation of Headquarters before our Centennial celebration. The goals of this project were to create a welcoming and inclusive space for all while preserving our 100 years of history. Continuing our education and conversation about Diversity and Inclusion (D&I), the League scheduled several speakers prior to the national protests against racial injustice. In the fall, members voted and approved to add a new Vice President position on the

Milestones Luncheon

For the first time in League history, we held our Milestones Luncheon virtually in late March 2021. Active Erin Pope and Sustainer Candace Winslow co-chaired the 10th anniversary of the annual event, which featured world champion gymnast Simone Biles as our special guest. We also recognized 2021 Sustainer of the Year Diane Scovell for her incredible work in the community and nearly 100 Milestone Members for serving as “true milestones” in the lives of other JLD members. The event raised more than $450,000 for the Junior League of Dallas.

Be sure to save the date for next year’s events. This will be a once-in-a-lifetime celebration week and you will not want to miss all the fun!

Junior League of Dallas:

A Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion W R I T T E N BY H O L LY S C H L E I N

The Junior League of Dallas has long been committed to promoting Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) initiatives inside and outside the League. Externally, JLD has a strong focus on diverse Community Placements and provides dedicated volunteers to our community partners. In return, JLD members are exposed to rich experiences and diverse groups of people. The League initiated the D&I Committee during the 2009 - 2010 year to define what diversity and inclusion means to the League and to set goals for reaching new members. “The primary goal of the D&I Committee was to make the League a welcoming and inclusive place for all women interested in voluntarism to bring their authentic selves,” said Sustainer Katy Spicer, who served as the first Diversity and Inclusion Chair. “While the New Member Committee at the time was focused externally on recruiting members that reflected the diversity of the Dallas community, D&I was focused internally on retaining those members through education, communication and internal

Headquarters Renovation W R I T T E N BY S A R A H B O W L BY

The meeting room, which will comfortably seat 400, is outfitted with builtto-last carpeting, the signature JLD Headquarters warm wood trim and light-filtering roller shades. A wall of brass-handled storage closets at the back of the room will house new chairs and tables when not in use. Upgraded projectors will allow JLD to livestream meetings.

In July 2020, the Junior League of Dallas broke ground on a $2.1 million renovation of our Headquarters building. This project started with a need to preserve and honor our 100 years of service to the Dallas community by establishing an official Archive room to house and protect our history. As the project progressed, we realized that not only do we have a lot of history to preserve but our Headquarters needed to reflect the organization we are today. A 2018 request for proposal led JLD to hire design firm HOK and Dallasbased Michael Walker Construction for the project.” Sustainer and former President Julie Bagley, former President Brooke Bailey, current President Elizabeth Dacus and President-Elect Christa Sanford have all overseen the renovation. T H E TO UR The wide sloping ramps leading to the front doors are the first thing visitors notice at the renovated Headquarters building. The classic “L”-shaped door handles remain in place, showing the Board’s desire to preserve the character of the building and be financially responsible with the Building Endowment funds. Inside, a new ice-gray reception desk sits to the right of the entrance. Blackframed windowed offices stretch down the hall to the left. Across from the entry, the twin staircases now feature glossy black metal railing. Three halo light fixtures with teardrop LEDs stand out against the balcony and skylights, while the glazed brick floors remain as-is below. Seating areas with cozy armchairs flank the aisle leading to the large meeting room; signage celebrating JLD donors is on the right. 10

|

To the right of the meeting room are two glass-front phone rooms for taking calls in private. Beyond this lies a co-working lounge furnished with a banquette and seating area, plush couches and tables. This room is intended for small meetings, member workspace and social gatherings. Adjacent to the coworking lounge is a temperature and humidity-controlled archives room where 100 years of documents will be stored in a preservation-friendly space. The pantry sits to the left of the meeting room and includes ice and water dispensers, a refrigerator, deep cabinets for storage, two microwaves, two warming drawers and the existing pass-through window to the meeting room. Located behind the reception desk, the board room features a substantial conference table, bronze and glass shelves for display and a floor-to-ceiling navy velvet bench as a centerpiece. Blue-gray draperies, a paneled ceiling with LED lights and fresh carpet make the room feel light, bright and ready for business. The front offices kept their original footprint, but are updated with new carpeting and cabinets. All restrooms are now ADA-compliant. The first floor now includes a wellness room for member needs. The second floor houses new glass-walled offices and three sun-filled nooks where desks await those needing a quiet workspace. The quilts, which were used to raise money for the original 1984 Headquarters construction, will be mounted in acrylic and hung upstairs to honor those who made the original building possible. This renovation was the culmination of much planning and thought and would not have been completed without the efforts of Sustainer Lyda Hill and our Headquarters Endowment Committee. . The JLD staff and Board look forward to welcoming League members and visitors back to the facility soon.

Equest responded swiftly as soon as Dallas County permitted its facility to reopen. “I keep coming back because it is magical to see the impact and bond the horses have with the clients, and as a fellow horse lover, it brings me joy to see the love of horses shared,” said Project Chair Leah Shafer, now in her third year at Equest with JLD. Juliette Fowler Communities is in its fourth year of partnership with the League. In a typical year, JLD members plan monthly art projects, buy supplies and teach classes for the residents in memory care. Since COVID-19 restrictions prevented JLD volunteers from visiting the facility, volunteers Allison Gaughan and Lea LaFortune planned projects for the Juliette Fowler staff to lead. “When I talked to Laura on staff, she said ‘We don’t have the time or ability to come up with all these projects.’ We are giving back by still being able to provide something they would not otherwise get.” The Juliette Fowler volunteers gathered virtually in October for a showcase and happy hour to view the residents’ artwork. This spring, they created a collaborative outdoor art installation. Fowler residents decorated flowerpots and JLD volunteers planted flowers and painted an outdoor mural on campus. Like many, our Juliette Fowler volunteers are eager to return to normal. “The residents get so excited when we come. Even though they are in memory care they recognize us and know we are there to teach art.” Through the challenge of the pandemic, JLD members have shown resilience, creativity and compassion in fulfilling their roles both within the League and in the community.

In 2016, the Junior League Centennial Committee began scouting for a special project to mark this milestone and inspire all Dallasites for generations. Our leaders sought a project that would have a lasting, positive impact on our city; serve all in our community; align with the Junior League’s mission; and improve Dallas for the next century. Active research started in 2018, and after visiting numerous potential projects and conducting countless interviews over a twoyear period, the centennial committee unanimously chose the restoration of the Juanita J. Craft House and Museum. The Junior League’s two-pronged centennial gift will cover both remaining restoration costs and new educational programming for adults, develop public school curriculum, and establish ongoing partnerships with the African American Museum, Fair Park and the Friends of Juanita Craft. Because the

project is in the planning phase, we will continue to monitor construction estimates and curriculum expenses to determine the final donation amount. The project will be completed in March 2022. In addition, we are working closely with the city to secure the home’s designation as a historical landmark on the Civil Rights Trail, which would be the first in the state of Texas. As we approach our centennial anniversary, the Junior League of Dallas is honored and excited to celebrate Juanita Craft. She exemplifies our centennial theme: “the Junior League of Dallas, Legacy of Leadership, Devotion to Dallas for 100 years.” Elizabeth Dacus is president of the Junior League of Dallas.
