Junior League’s Entertainment Committee of 1923

In 1923 the members of the Entertainment Committee of Junior League of Louisville pledged to give 2 hours each week of time and service to the community.  At the time the League owned their own “moving” picture machine so they could take the movies to people in the community who may not otherwise have the means to do so…so instead of having to go to the movie house the JLL brought the movie house to them!!  It was a well received project that brought great joy to those who the League thought may be overlooked.

What an amazing idea and ahead of the times!
