November and December have been busy months for our Junior Guild Ladies. We've cleaned the roadside, rang the bell, donated canned food, spent time together, met our newest members, and planned for 2018. Merry Christmas to all!
The Puppet Committee is preparing "The Little Engine that Could" for its December 10th debut at the Imperial Centre's Winter Wonderland Event. Multiple shows will be held that day between 2pm and 5pm.
A big thank you to our puppets committee: Jessie Langley - Chair, Diana Bradley - Co-Chair, Lucy Armstrong, Jamila Hawkins, Sarah Wester and Jenny White.
Please come out on December 10th to enjoy the show and support our Puppet's Committee!
The 2017 mum sales was a huge success. This year, we sold a total of 800 mums. Our top two seller were Tiffany Delano and Mariah McKeller. With a lot of hard work, the fundraising committee was able to raise $3,095 from this one event! Thank you to everyone who participated in buying, selling, and/or volunteering your time.

The Junior Guild 2015-2016 Provisional Class is working diligently to build upon the already established legacy and community commitment that the Junior Guild of Rocky Mount has upheld since its inception in 1937. To continue such efforts, we are soliciting your support in the completion of an outdoor classroom which will be utilized for Peacemakers of Rocky Mount’s Freedom School and after-school programs.
Peacemakers, located in South Rocky Mount, is a community development, Christian organization whose mission is to provide the knowledge, skills and resources necessary for its members to lead successful and sustainable lives. Peacemakers’ mission is achieved through after-school programs, tutoring, education classes, food distribution, Freedom School and more. Freedom School is a summer enrichment program assisting children in low-income communities with reading.
The outdoor classroom will be comprised of picnic tables, an outside chalkboard and a covering/shelter. We are also planning a reveal date for the classroom, tentatively scheduled for May 21, 2016 at 1 p.m.
The total cost to create the classroom will be approximately $2,500.
