of this mission-based event, JLH members partnered with a variety of local nonprofit organizations

On November 17, JLH members
spent five hours with the Capital City
Educational Alliance’s Let's Paint
program. JLH members and student
participants worked side-by-side to
paint a portion of the Burns Latino
Studies building in Hartford. Members
informally mentored the students
by learning about one another
During lunch, the pairings took turns
introducing each other to the whole
group and shared some details they
learned about one another during
their painting and conversation. The
sharing allowed the students to be
more comfortable with public speaking.
JLH MEMBERS VOLUNTEERED AT THE GREAT INFLATA-
BLE RACE IN HARTFORD IN SEPTEMBER.
The students are learning and developing
skills to be workforce
ready. The painting and conversation
will both make a difference for
years to come.

Dear Junior League of Hartford Members, Partners, Friends and Supporters:
After more than 97 years of service to the greater Hartford community, the Junior League of Hartford continues to thrive. As we head into
2019, we would like to thank all of you for making the first half of the 2018-2019 League year such
We introduced summer General Membership meetings to keep our members involved, engaged
and informed throughout the summer months and kicked off the league year with our annual Leadership
Team Nuts & Bolts training and information sharing session. The summer also saw a group
trip to see The Lion King at the Bushnell with many League members, friends and family members
– we loved being out on the town together and were in awe of the show!
As an organization committed to not only volunteerism, but developing the potential of women and
training our members, we have participated in a number of developmental opportunities. In addition
to our Training Committee’s facilitation of the second year of our JLH Mentor Program, we also
partnered with other members of the Connecticut Council of Junior Leagues for a leadership training
event in Greenwich this fall. Participating members learned all about leading teams with impact
and shared best practices with our fellow Connecticut Junior Leagues.
In the interest of connecting with the broader Junior League population, we also welcomed Association
of Junior Leagues International (AJLI) Vice President and Junior League of Boston member
Elizabeth Tyminski for a governance visit to learn more from AJLI and share our successes and experiences back to the organization.
We welcomed nearly 20 new members through our Fall Provisional Class and thanks to an expedited provisional program, they became
fully active members by our December General Membership Meeting. We look forward to welcoming new provisional members in January,
as well, and have hosted informational sessions in Glastonbury, West Hartford, Farmington and even online! If you or anyone within
your network of friends, family and colleagues would be interested in joining the JLH, we would love to share our experiences with them
and welcome them during either of our entry points in 2019 (January and September).
We held our Third Annual Volunteer-a-thon on November 9-10 with 26.2 consecutive hours of volunteering within the greater Hartford
community. We worked with 10 community organizations, partnered with more than a dozen corporate sponsors, and raised nearly
$15,000 for JLH programs and projects. This huge success wouldn’t have been possible without your support – we were so proud to
showcase the womanpower of the JLH. It’s incredible how much we can accomplish together!
We kicked off our fifth and final year with our signature project, Career Connections for Young Women (CCYW) this January and have
been so proud of the partnership we’ve had with Junior Achievement of Southwest New England throughout that time. The 10-week program’s
objective is to prepare and inspire teenage girls in the greater Hartford community to focus on professional goals and financial
responsibility. As we roll this project off, we are thrilled to report that a corporate sponsor has committed to supporting this program, securing
its success for at least another five years.
As you can tell, we have been busy and this continues to be a very exciting time for the JLH. We are in the midst of the New Project Development
phase, working to create a new mission-focused signature project with a community partner in the area. The funds we raise
today will go toward creating and sustaining our future projects, which we are so proud of.
Thank you to our donors who continue to support us and our members who continue to give so generously. With your continuous time,
passion and support, we look forward to deepening our community impact and developing the potential of our incredible members.
All the best,

PUBLIC RELATIONS COMMITTEE STRATEGY UPDATE
BY BRIA DAY
The JLH Public Relations (PR) Committee has been working to further support the traditional and new media needs of the
League and our community partners.
The Committee’s 2018-2019 goals are: to elevate the image of the JLH, articulate the JLH’s value and contributions within Greater
Hartford and both attract and retain members. This is being accomplished by building an increased social media presence on
Twitter, Facebook and Instagram; refreshing our print collateral to reflect who the League is today and expanding opportunities
for branded merchandise to better represent our League when we’re out in the community (stay tuned for more details!).
When you are out in the community on behalf of, or in partnership with, the Junior League of Hartford, please snap some photos
and send to email@example.com. To be featured on our JLH social media handles, tag the League’s accounts and use hashtags
#jlh and #jlhartford.

AJLI GOVERNANCE VISIT
BY WHITNEY SWEENEY
This October, the Junior League of Hartford (JLH) was honored to host the Association of
Junior Leagues International (AJLI) Vice President Elizabeth Tyminski for a governance
visit. Elizabeth has been on the AJLI Governance Committee since 2013, and brings a
wealth of knowledge both on the local and international level.
Elizabeth has been an active member of the Junior League of Boston for more than 20
years, where she has occupied a number of roles, including serving as the League’s President,
Treasurer, Nominating Chair, Provisional Program Chair, Manager of Training, Centennial
Ball Chair and Show House Chair.
While in Hartford, Elizabeth presented to our members at the October General Membership
Meeting at the Hill-Stead Museum, where she communicated the current initiatives
and goals of the AJLI, shared her experience in Boston and reminded us how we can
utilize the AJLI as a resource.
Several of our Sustainers and past presidents gave Elizabeth a tour of Freshplace Food
Pantry, our last signature project, and walked her through our current project, Career Connections for Young Women (CCYW) at Junior
Achievement Southwest New England.
Our Board of Directors had the opportunity to sit down with Elizabeth to discuss various governance topics and JLH initiatives and priorities
and we capped her visit with a lovely soup tasting luncheon with over two dozen Sustainers at the home of Ellen Coco.
Elizabeth’s perspective, experience and conversations were all invaluable to feel a broader connection to the larger Junior League family
and we were so proud to share our accomplishments with her.

of My Sister's Place on October 24, 2018.
Nearly 40 children and 20 adults gathered for dinner,
candy bag decorating and trick-or-treating around the

with a great organization!
JLH MEMBERS CONTINUED THE TRADITION OF HOSTING A HALLOWEEN PAR-
TY FOR RESIDENTS AT MY SISTER’S PLACE IN OCTOBER.
THIRD ANNUAL VOLUNTEER-A-THON (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1)
Project Linus: JLH members supported the Connecticut Project Linus chapter by making fleece blankets to be given as
gifts to seriously ill and traumatized children ages 0 - 18 years old in Connecticut area children's hospitals. Project Linus' mission is
to provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized or otherwise in need through
the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer "blanketeers."
Girls on the Run: JLH helped support Girls on the Run with organizing supplies in their storage unit. Girls on the Run inspires
girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind.
YWCA Hartford: JLH members joined the women of the YWCA Soromundi Commons for a wellness event. JLH Sustainer
Jen Byrne taught a barre class for the event, followed by an essential oils workshop. Soromundi Commons is a YWCA Hartford
Region housing initiative located in Hartford, Connecticut designed to assist those who have been homeless, or are at risk of homelessness,
with moving from the street to stability.
United Labor Agency (ULA): JLH partnered with ULA for two events on Saturday morning. A group of members helped the
John J. Driscoll United Labor Agency prepare for the winter months. Volunteers raked leaves and cleaned windows at the Middletown
office while another group of women helped fill backpacks for the ULA Labor of Love Backpack program. The backpacks
are packed with child-friendly, nonperishable foods for the weekend. JLH also included a book from the League’s Barnes and Noble
Book Drive in each backpack. The Labor of Love Backpack program was started through a partnership with Junior League of Hartford.
Chrysalis Center, Inc.: Volunteers helped co-shop with Freshplace shoppers and sorted food donations. Freshplace is a fresh
food pantry serving our neighbors in the Upper Albany and Asylum Hill neighborhoods. The Chrysalis Center works with clients to
set goals and provides free groceries twice a month while clients work on their goals. They also provide case management and can
help them with job training, employment, housing, legal and health services. Freshplace was originally started with the help of Junior
League of Hartford.
Gifts of Love: Volunteers helped Gifts of Love prepare for the winter months! JLH members helped with the final harvest
and barn clean up. Gifts of Love's mission is to reduce financial crises for working individuals and families in the Greater Hartford
area by offering short-term programs and education that support and improve sustainability. Gifts of Love is devoted to the needs of
the community and responds to the needs of individuals and families who have been impacted by a financial crisis through the distribution
of food, clothing, household necessities, furniture, financial planning and self-sufficiency consultation.
Junior Achievement of Southwest New England: JLH partnered with Junior Achievement of Southwest New England by
participating in a JA in a Day event at the CREC International Magnet School for Global Citizenship in South Windsor. JA in a Day
is a high impact way to deliver JA's lessons for a particular grade level all on the same day. Junior Achievement is the nation's largest
organization dedicated to giving young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their
futures, and make smart academic and economic choices.
The Children’s Museum: The Junior League of Hartford helped with various tasks at the Children's Museum Annual Gingerbread
Lane Exhibit. Members helped with the exhibit preview for VIPs and Donors and also helped with children’s activities
when the event opened to the public. The Gingerbread Lane Exhibit is an amazing three-layered gingerbread village display. It is
made from 225 lbs of gingerbread dough, 720 lbs of royal icing, 310 lbs of candy and 20 lbs of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger!
Journey Home: JLH members helped load and deliver household goods and furniture to Journey Home clients throughout
the Hartford area. Journey Home has spent the last decade committed to ending chronic homelessness in the Greater Hartford region.
For the first time in 35 years, everyone they have verified as chronically homeless in Greater Hartford is in the process of finding
a home, a home where they will be provided permanent housing with the support services they need. Founded in 2007 as the
agency responsible for implementing Hartford’s 10-Year Plan to End Homelessness, Journey Home has grown to become a strategic
leader and valued partner for homeless service providers throughout the region.
Historical Archiving: Members sorted, organized, cataloged and stored our Junior League of Hartford historical information
and artifacts dating back to the 1920s. Members helped protect our rich history and learned more about our League throughout
the years and will partner with the Connecticut Historical Society for preservation.
VOLUNTEER-A-THON WRAP UP
On Wednesday, November 7, the Junior League of Hartford celebrated the start of the Volunteer-a-thon at Hanging Hills Brewery with
family, friends, sponsors and community partners. Almost 100 people attended the event. Guests participated in a charity beer pong
tournament, enjoyed local beer from Hanging Hills Brewery and delicious food from Sambas’ Cuisine Food Truck.

FALL 2018 PROVISIONAL CLASS
BY AMIE LUGO AND MICHELE SOK
The Junior League of Hartford welcomed 19 new active members at the Annual Holiday Party on Tuesday, December 11. These
women successfully completed the introductory Provisional Class curriculum, learned about JLH’s mission and history, participated in
team-building exercises and volunteered their time to support JLH programs.
This year, JLH implemented two Provisional Classes - the first in fall 2018 and the second in spring 2019. With a shortened Provisional
year, there was increased engagement and excitement within the Provisional Class, including the signature Provisional Project held
this year at My Sister’s Place on December 3. The Provisionals hosted a holiday marketplace where resident children were able to
shop for a loved one, get the gift wrapped, create a craft and have dinner.
This fall, the class supported the Third Annual Volunteer-a-thon, donating their time to the United Labor Agency, raising funds and
spreading the word about the JLH. They also enjoyed team-building and social events, including apple picking, visiting the Complexity
Room and participating in the Annual Cookie Swap.
These women have demonstrated the drive and commitment to make a real impact in the community and the Junior League of Hartford
is so proud to welcome them as active members of the JLH. The Provisional Class curriculum is designed to provide new League
members with the necessary knowledge and experience to enter as an active member of the JLH. The next Provisional Class kicked
off in January 2019. If you know someone who is interested in joining the JLH, please encourage them to apply at

CONNECTICUT COUNCIL OF JUNIOR LEAGUES LEADERSHIP TRAINING
BY TANISHA JACKSON
On Saturday, November 3, more than 30 volunteers
from Junior Leagues across Connecticut received
leadership training at the Junior League of Greenwich
headquarters, spearheaded by the Connecticut
Council of Junior Leagues (CCJL). Tori Hollingworth,
a presentation skills coach and communication
training specialist, facilitated the training opportunity
themed “Creating and Leading Teams with
The training workshop focused on delivering clear,
concise messages with confidence in an effective
manner, and the ability to influence teams as a leader.
The course included a seminar with group exercises
for members to practice the newly learned
skills. The first group exercise consisted of participants
brainstorming to list characteristics of effective
Junior League teams. Some recurring traits listed by
the teams were: organization, common goals, attendance
Leading requires establishing trust. Establishing
trust requires: communication, credibility, and relationships.
The first step in establishing trust requires

cations with a human side, and then diving into the
business of the meeting, and ultimately ending on the human side.
Effective communication requires determining how people like to be communicated with. How do you persuade people, motivate and
pull people in? Understanding a member’s preferred method of communication results in better listening and being heard more clearly.
Once people are listening, you must persuade them by appealing to ethos (credibility), pathos (emotion) or logos (logical appeal).
Leadership is not about you, it’s about who you are communicating with and communicating with people in a way that they will understand.
Do you prefer inductive or deductive communication? A group exercise on communicating with committee members allowed us
to critique our communication styles, including eye contact and body language for effective communication.
Motivation techniques were also discussed. How are your members motivated? Leaders can empower team members to become
future leaders by delegating tasks. Delegation requires strategy and matching tasks with individual capabilities. Leaders should support
and guide members in tasks, provide timelines, and deadlines for touching base on a specific date to see if tasks are completed.
A group exercise on delegation required members to create a list of committee tasks, prioritization of tasks, and delegation of tasks.
Difficult conversations require leaders to show empathy with difficult people, conversations that have a goal, and engaging the problem
to show leadership. In order to deal with a difficult person, first describe the bad behavior, describe the impact of the behavior on
the group, and prescribe solutions for the problem. Questions that leaders should ask are: What do you know about the difficult person?
What are your assumptions about this person? What are the contributions to the difficult behavior? In difficult conversations,
selectively agree with something that is true – validate the person. A group exercise on dealing with a difficult committee member was
used to demonstrate how to make people feel valued, coaching of members through a difficult situation, breaking up problems into
multiple options, and to celebrating successes.
The last training topic was learning seven steps of problem solving. A key to group problem solving is to brainstorm with committee
members so that they feel empowered and part of the solution. The group exercise on problem solving required implementing all seven
steps in making decisions on a committee problem.
In the concluding exercise, participants created an action plan to incorporate the techniques learned in daily situations. The training
course was a useful resource for members and co-chairs and those interested in pursuing leadership. This course gives members
tools to lead with confidence and make committees stronger.
JLH MENTORING PROGRAM KICKS OFF SECOND YEAR
BY JESSIE GAGNON
The painting studio at Glazed in Glastonbury was ablaze with energy on November 19 when 30 women from the Junior League of
Hartford gathered to kick-off the second year of the JLH Mentoring Program. The JLH Mentoring Program aims to increase member
retention in a way that engages new members by offering them support from seasoned members and inspires them to own the mission
of the League, becoming League ambassadors in the community.
In its second year, the Mentoring Program has doubled in size with 40 women signed up to participate, 20 as mentors and 20 as
mentees. Any member who has been in the League for at least three years is eligible to be a mentor. Everyone interested in participating
as either a mentor or a mentee completes an interest survey that the Training Committee uses to match mentees and mentors.
Some of the criteria used includes having similar interests and goals, whether it’s to find more ways to get involved in the community,
develop leadership skills and join the JLH Board one day, grow their network within the League, or balance work, family, and volunteering.
Now that the kick-off event is over, the mentors and mentees will meet on their own each month for the remainder of the League year,
and the whole group will get together again in February for a mid-year check-in and a year-end wrap-up event in May. Many thanks to
Glazed for donating their space for the event.
