New Members (Provisionals)

Each fall, the Junior League of Greater Lakeland welcomes a new group of exceptional women to its Provisional Class. The purpose of the Provisional Class is to provide an introduction to The Junior League of Greater Lakeland (JLGL), the Lakeland community and the Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI).
