Reflections from 5 years as a Junior Lady of Charity

JR LOC AlbanyThe Ladies of Charity website contains a reflection by a Junior Lady of Charity. Mary Fritz shares the impact of her five years as a Junior Lady.

She writes

I can confidently say that being a part of this organization has enhanced my life in ways I never thought imaginable.

I first became involved with the Junior Ladies of Charity (JLOC) in 2010. A neighbor of mine, who at the time was an officer of the group, told my sister and me that we would be great additions to the Junior Ladies of Charity. I was originally hesitant, as I had never heard of the group, and had no idea what to expect. However, upon arriving at our first meeting, I saw how passionate everyone was about their service, and immediately decided that it was something I wanted to pursue.

Since our first meeting as skeptical middle school students, Maggie and I have each taken leadership positions among the group.

She concludes her five years…

As I prepare for my last year as a Troy Junior Lady before heading off to college, I feel a huge sense of despair. This organization has been the most influential aspect of my life over the past five years, and it is something that I do not want to lose touch with as I start the next chapter in my life. My hope is that, come the fall, I can become involved with, or even start, a Ladies of Charity group at the place I will call home for the next four years.
