This year was truly remarkable for the Junior League of El Paso. After several years of research, fundraising, and planning, the El Paso Desert Botanical Garden at Keystone Heritage Park finally opened. The Garden was just one of the fabulous projects the JLEP implemented this year. The others were: Art & Sol, Music Therapy for the Elderly, Independence House, and El Paso Ambassadors. This year also saw remarkable public relations and media highlighting the efforts of the League.

A Christmas Fair was a fun-filled event with a New Orleans theme. Bite of the Border was a great success with over 4,000 people attending.

Advisory and Strategic Planning developed a new three-year comprehensive Strategic Plan. All of the accomplishments this year reflect that members are, indeed, “Driven to Succeed!”
