Throughout that year, there is a requirement of three service hours and candidates are asked to attend at least 5 meetings throughout the year. Each candidate class will also work with the Vice President to host one meeting in April. After the full year, candidates will be installed during the December or May Dinner (once requirements have been met) and will officially be Juniors.
After installment, Juniors have a meeting requirement and a service hour requirement. Members need to complete three service hours throughout the year. Members can complete service hours by participating in any number of club events such as Senior Desserts, Meals on Wheels, and Pumpkin Fest. Members also need to attend a minimum of five meetings from September to June and join one committee. The club does not meet in July or August. All members have an additional requirement of helping with Libertyville Days and our biennial fundraiser.
