We kicked off the 90’s decade with the project “Christmas on Maine Street'' an arts and craft fair.
The next year we developed a project to coincide with the Cherokee Strip Centennial celebration and the tenth anniversary of the STIR UPS cookbook called "Stir Up a Celebration”. On the 10th anniversary of STIR UPS we had an anniversary edition printed. The new "Slim Pickens" chapter focused on a healthier cooking style. Existing recipes were also marked throughout the revised cookbook to note suggestions on how to reduce fat and calories. These updates renewed our enthusiasm and commitment to our cookbook.
The next year League and the community collaborated to bring Enid it’s most successful follies yet; “Good Golly, It’s Follies!” . That year also saw our League Development committee initiate a new project appropriately named "Christmas Wishes". A local family was "adopted" for Christmas and money was given through the finance committee along with gifts donated by League members to ensure this family a happier holiday. This tradition still continues today.
Next year’s project was "Maine Street Affair” and JWL celebrated 65 year of service to the Enid community.
Our project took a turn the next year with "Pinky’s Kit Kat Club”. For one night, members transformed an ordinary room into a 1920’s nightclub where a murder mystery took place during dinner. Following, it was time for Follies. The community truly did "Catch the Magic" as cast members sang and danced their way into raising significant funds for our community.
The next year brought “Christmas on Main Street” which wasan overwhelming success!
In 1998-1999 League took a wonderfully different approach to our yearly project. League members voted to work on eight 'mini' projects for various community organizations throughout the year. The greatest benefit from these projects was that not only did we contribute JWL funds to these organizations, but League members themselves were able to invest a lot of time and 'sweat equity' into them.
We celebrated the new millennium and our 70th year with “It's a Celebration! Follies 2000”. This follies was our rendition of 1940's dances, music and radio talk.
In all, that decade of service disbursed more than $181,000 through our projects.
