JLP COVID Policy Update

JLP COVID Policy Update

The JLP’s Reopening Policy states that for all events at Headquarters or offsite, we follow the most conservative of recommendations from the CDC or guidelines from federal, state or local governments. With events offsite, in addition to the foregoing, we also abide by any specific guidelines put in place by the venue or partner where we are convening. Given that our Headquarters is in Montgomery County and many League events occur in other counties with differing restrictions, we understand that this portion of the policy can cause some confusion.

In accordance with the updated mask guidance issued by the CDC on February 25, 2022, indoor masking in Montgomery County is no longer required. As a result, the JLP will not be requiring masks indoors at our Headquarters or any League event planned in an area where masking is not required unless or until the applicable guidelines are changed. At present, Philadelphia County still has an indoor mask mandate, and certain venues or partners may have their own specific mask or vaccine requirements.

Please know that JLP members may make their own decisions about wearing masks at JLP events. Anyone who wishes to continue to wear a mask will be fully supported in that decision. We expect all members of our League to respect those individual choices.

JLP COVID Policy Update

JLP COVID Policy Update

The Junior League of Philadelphia, Inc. has updated their COVID-19 Risk Acknowledgement and Waiver. This document reflects the current CDC and local health department guidelines and is in place to protect all JLP members, partners, vendors, and the community. The waiver is required to be completed by all who attend JLP events, whether at JLP HQ or elsewhere. The waiver is available at all JLP events and on the members page of the JLP website.

International Women’s Day Tea Party

International Women’s Day, March 8, is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality. This year’s theme is “Break the Bias.”

On Sunday, March 6, the Thrift Shop Committee will be hosting a tea to celebrate the achievements of women and our League. The event will consist of a “History of Royal Cuisine and Tea,” with Jennifer G. Morgan, JLP Past President and Sustainer, a talk with Kristin Contino, local author of “A House Full of Windsor,” who will discuss the role of The Queen and women in the royal family along with her book’s connection to Philadelphia, and a discussion about the achievements of our League year.

We are offering a pickup of afternoon tea boxes which include eight tea sandwiches, a scone, three pastries, and tea to brew at home. For an additional amount, you can purchase a teacup and saucer set from the Thrift Shop and receive one Ways & Means Credit for the event. Or, you can brew your own tea, or pick up from your favorite local café, and join us for the virtual event. All participants will be entered in a drawing to win a fabulous gift from the Thrift Shop.

Pickup locations for the boxed afternoon tea will be at the Thrift Shop on Saturday, March 5 and in the Fairmount section of Philadelphia on Sunday, March 6. Both locations will require a mask for pickup.

The event is open to all. Members may invite guests; however, tickets must be purchased on the member site. Venture in the Thrift Shop for tea-related outfits, teacups and more! The Thrift Shop will be open during the Saturday tea box pickup. After the event, we hope to see members posting on social media using the #spilltheteawithjlp hashtag to celebrate.

Ticket prices for the virtual event are: $10 Virtual event only; $35 Virtual event plus Afternoon Tea box from A Taste of Britain; $45 Virtual event plus Afternoon Tea box, teacup and saucer set, and one Ways and Means Credit. Click here to purchase tickets.
