2019 Junior League of Peoria LBDI Week

November General Membership Meeting

Tuesday, Nov. 12th, 6pm

2232 West Glen Avenue

Peoria, IL

The November GMM will be at the Lariat Steakhouse (2232 W Glen Ave, Peoria). A social, hosted by the Member Services Committee, will be held prior to the meeting in the bar area. The meeting will begin promptly at 6:00PM.

The monthly GMM is a great opportunity for JLP to discuss key issues and distribute important information. In doing this, JLP maintains transparency by keeping members informed on the status of the League. This month features a Sustainer Panel as well as information about ODI attendance, Giving Tuesday, and other updates.

If you are interested in joining the League, this is a great opportunity to attend and better understand our initiatives.
