The Junior League of Tyler was honored with the Butterfly Hope Award at the annual Alzheimer’s Alliance of Smith County luncheon on Thursday, September 26, 2019. The award, started in 2013, recognizes individuals and organizations that have made significant contributions to the Alzheimer’s Alliance mission of providing life-changing support to persons living with dementia and their caregivers. Since 2002, the Junior League of Tyler has provided financial assistance and volunteer hours to the Alzheimer’s Alliance. The primary focus for the League has been on the Terrific Tuesdays program. This year, because of the partnership between the Junior League of Tyler and the Alzheimer’s Alliance, the day program has now expanded to Thursdays as well.

Touch A Truck is a family-friendly, hands-on experience that allows children the opportunity to meet the people who build, protect and serve our community, as well as explore the trucks, machinery, and vehicles that they use in their day-to-day jobs. Most children are not given the opportunities to engage with our community leaders and their vehicles in a fun way, yet Touch A Truck offers this experience in a safe and secure environment.
Want to be a part of Touch A Truck? We are looking for sponsors with trucks, vehicles and heavy machinery to join us for a day of fun and learning! Please contact us at 903-595-5426 to see how you can help!
Additional details about Touch A Truck 2019 coming soon!
This year’s Summer Reading Camp will be held June 18th – 22nd.
Campers will be entering the third grade at various TISD schools this fall. The Junior League brings an excitement to reading through crazy-fun sessions in Art, Drama, and Community. One of the many highlights of camp is the daily visit to the camp bookstore. Each camper leaves with many wonderful memories and also with at least 25 new books, including our own Good Night Rose City. The Junior League of Tyler believes that an excited reader becomes a strong reader and a strong reader becomes a strong learner! We love reading; please join us!!!
