Our Story

Libertyville Junior Woman's Club was originally founded as a branch of the Libertyville Woman's Club. It was organized on June 10, 1963 by a group of women in Libertyville and federated on September 9, 1963. LJWC was incorporated on August 25, 1964 and has expanded to welcome all area women.

Our Story

Junior Pledge

I pledge my loyalty

To the Junior Clubwomen

By doing better than ever before

What work I have to do,

By being prompt, honest, courteous,

By living each day,

Trying to accomplish something,

Not merely to exist.

-Mrs. Helen C. Kimberly

"I was taught to always give back to those less fortunate.  I spent the last 15 years volunteering at Libertyville Schools and in other capacities, as well. I am a current school board member for D70 and LJWC provides me with another way to give back to the community that has given our family so much."
