For over 100 years, the historic 55 Center Street has served as a home for voluntarism in Monmouth County. Built in 1906 as the original Rumson Fire House, the building was purchased by the Junior League of Monmouth County in 1956 for one dollar. Since that time, 55 Center Street's legacy of serving the community has continued in the hands of the JLMC, an all-volunteer organization of women, trained as civic leaders making positive community impact.
The JLMC is calling on all of its Members and the community at large to help support the Building Opportunities Campaign to continue efforts to restore and preserve the JLMC's historic building for community meetings, training sessions, and functions. Our goal is to raise $200,000 from 100% of our Members and from support of the community. The Leadership Phase of the campaign has resulted in close to $100,000 in pledges – we are half way to our goal!
On October 27, 2011, we celebrated the generosity of the current supporters of the Building Opportunities Campaign and made the case for why support of new donors is critical. We unveiled the exciting improvements to date - including the long-awaited Joan Lucky Library - and also showcased improvements on the horizon.
