The Junior League of Bristol TN-VA's Provisional Class has been hard at work this year in a BIG way!
The Junior League of Bristol, in conjunction with the Bristol, VA Parks & Recreation Department has approved our community project for the 2018-2019 League Year - a sensory board at Sugar Hollow Park in Bristol, VA. In previous years, playground equipment has been donated by the Junior League of Bristol at Sugar Hollow Park, and the addition of a sensory board and panels not only provides safe and stimulating play for children with special needs, but appeals to children of all ages.
We are excited to begin working on construction of this project with our anticipated completion date scheduled for Spring/Summer 2019.

Junior League of Bristol uses Little Free Libraries to aid new Literacy Campaign
June 30, 2018
Thanks to participation in an innovative program promoting literacy, the Junior League of Bristol has joined with the Bristol, Tennessee, city schools and members of a local Boy Scout to get more books in the hands of potential readers.
Known as the Little Free Library project, the program promotes a love of books and reading by getting written works into the hands of as many readers as possible.
"The commitment to our community is as strong as the
commitment of our veterans to our country."
To honor our veterans, the JLB Provisional Class is proud to host a screening of "Almost Sunrise" on April, 13, 2019 at Emory and Henry College in Wiley Auditorium at 4:00pm. Admission will be a donation of $7.00 and proceeds will benefit our veterans.
Moral injury destroys the moral and spiritual beliefs of the men and women who serve our country. "Almost Sunrise" explores the effects of this condition through the story of two Iraq veterans struggling with depression. Their 2,700 mile journey across the country they served shines a light on the impact of moral injury on civilian life.
Thank you from the bottom of our JLB hearts to each individual who donated items, worked before/during/after our Bargain Bonanza, shopped with us, provided a monetary donation, or sent well wishes from afar! Bargain Bonanza was a huge success and we appreciate each of you!
The money raised from Bargain Bonanza 2018 will be used in conjunction with the Bristol, Virginia Parks & Recreations Department, to purchase and install sensory boards for special needs children at Sugar Hollow Park. Please see our Project Spotlight section below for additional details and for updates on the progression of bringing our project to life!
