Page 6 THE VILLADOM TIMES IV • October 21, 2009 Area Junior League receives community leadership award Children’s Aid and Family Services recently honored the Junior League of Bergen County at the Seventh Annual Building Futures Awards Ceremony. The Building Futures Awards recognize individuals, groups and corporations that contribute to building futures for children, families and communities in northern New Jersey. The JLBC, a charitable women’s organization dedicated to developing the potential of women, was honored for community leadership. The organization has served Bergen County for 76 years and one of the league’s achievements grew from a partnership with the Children’s Aid and Adoption Society in 1973: Woodlea, a group home in Ridgewood that provides therapeutic foster care for teenage girls. Originally purchased with funds raised by the JLBC members, the home was named Woodlea by combining the “wood” in Ridgewood with the “lea” in Junior League. Although Woodlea was later turned over to CAFS, the JLBC has continued to provide support for the home, including a $10,000 grant for facility renovations this spring. The award was presented to JLBC President Patricia Montegari by Barbara Bolger. Bolger, a longtime JLBC member, was chairperson of the taskforce that founded Woodlea. Bolger then served as president of the board that governs Woodlea for the following 36 years. This June, Bolger was succeeded by Trudi Dial, another longtime member of the JLBC, who will be honored at the JLBC’s Fall fundraiser, the 25th annual Festival of Trees party and auction on Saturday, Nov. 21.
