DONE IN A DAY (DIAD)
We plan short projects called Done in a Days (DIAD). These are sometimes included as part of our monthly general membership meetings. We also tackle larger initiatives that require more hours of planning and coordinating to implement. The reward of working together and seeing desirable outcomes in our community is one of the best parts of being a Junior League member.
