President’s Note

A Note from our President

On behalf of the 2023 – 2024 Junior League of Long Island Board of Directors and membership, I would like to welcome everyone to our 72nd year of service in the Long Island community!

Since 1951, first as the North Shore Service League and then as the Junior League of Long Island we have been developing and training women to not only be devoted volunteers and civil leaders in their community but also become powerful sources in their professional and personal lives. Across Nassau and Suffolk counties we have developed programing to focus on the needs of our community and have cultivated relationships with community partners that align with our mission to spread the good we all have to offer Long Island.

The Junior League’s mission relates not only to promoting voluntarism but also to developing the potential of women. We are a united and unstoppable force dedicated to improving our community through effective action under the unfailing devotion of trained volunteers. We welcome all women who are looking for opportunities to not only grow in service but to grow in personal development as well.

This League year will be focusing on our continued desire to Redefine the Junior League Woman. Throughout the 122 years of the Junior League internationally we have seen the renaissance of women across the world change, especially our own members, changing the role in which women are viewed and engaged as professionals, caregivers, civil leaders, volunteers, and most importantly people. JLLI will be spending the 2023 – 2024 league year enriching our membership through both professional and personal development training but also providing opportunities to develop and nurture strong meaningful connections in the community and most importantly with each other.

JLLI has given me unlimited benefits and chances to give my time and talents to the community as well as many mentors and friendships that empower me to be the woman I am and the woman I will continue to grow to be. I am honored to serve in the role of President and look forward to the growth both personally and as a volunteer that each member is destined to make in their communities and their lives.

“As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands — one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.” — Audrey Hepburn

United in Service,

Remi Farnan
