Our general membership is limited to 55 people each year, who then are split into active members, required to work at least 50 hours per year; and provisional members, who must work 40 hours per year. Additional associate members help Junior Board log on average a total of more than 4,500 volunteer hours each year! Seeing how Junior Board of Rock Island benefits their community makes all the hours worth it; it’s truly so rewarding. We would also like to thank the past and present Sustainers for their faithful contributions, without you we could not be the wonderful women’s organization we are today.
