#dearjlsd: Bri Maheu

#dearjlsd (1)To commemorate our 90th year in San Diego, JLSD provisional, active, and sustaining members, as well as former members and community partners, are writing love letters to the Junior League of San Diego.

#DearJLSD

When I joined Junior League back in Denver it was to gain friends and learn more about the beloved city. Over the years, and through my transfer to San Diego I have genuinely enjoyed meeting more new people, volunteering, and fundraising. I owe the League a lot, as I have gained 2 wonderful roommates over the years.

Heather Albin and I lived together for almost 3 years and I watched her relationship with her fiancé go from their first date to their engagement. I have had the opportunity to learn so much from Heather and our families have bonded and become close over the years, celebrating holidays together like Christmas Eve and Hanukkah. More recently our families joined together again to support me and Heather at the Junior League of San Diego Gala. Not only did we have the opportunity to share this moment together, but we also honored a very close friend and past co-worker, Poppy Fitch with the Spirit of Community Award.

Nights like the Gala put into perspective why I love this League. Friends and family have always been a huge priority of mine and the night of the Gala my Junior League life and personal life came full circle!

Love,
Bri Maheu
Vice President of Fund Development, 2018-2019
