Recognizing our Members

The Junior League of Wilmington has many amazing woman who dedicate their time and talents to help make our community a better place.

If I stop one heart from breaking
I shall not live in vain
If I can ease one life the aching
or cool one pain,
or lift one fainting robin
unto his nest again
I shall not live in vain

- Emily Dickinson

The Emily Dickinson Outstanding Volunteer Service Award, sponsored by Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, honors League members whose service to the League and to her fellow members has gone above and beyond her normal placement responsibilities. Awards are open to any Active, Provisional or Sustaining member in good standing. Current Board members are not eligible. Each winner receives a $100 gift certificate to a local restaurant. Each month, the Board of the Junior League of Wilmington selects a winner to be recognized at the monthly general membership meeting as well as at our annual dinner in May.

Thank you to our sponsor Benjamin Franklin Plumbing for helping us to recognize our volunteers!
