Junior League of Fresno – 1970s

The 1970s found the Junior League of Fresno involved in yet another long-term project, International Visitors, which showed off the San Joaquin Valley for the next eleven years. The Volunteer of the Year Awards Luncheon (still going strong today) was born in 1971 thanks to the Junior League of Fresno. A Pediatric Playroom was added at Valley Children’s Hospital. An Annual College Arts Competition, a Drug Prevention Education Program, and a Shelter Home for dependent abused and neglected children were also undertaken. In 1974, the first annual Next-to-New Rummage Sale was held at the Fresno Fairgrounds.
