The 100 women of the Service League of Cherokee County individually commit to 50 hours of active service each year for a total of 10 years. Members who are currently serving their 10 year commitment are considered "Active Members," with those in their very first year of service considered active "Provisional Members." Those women who have completed their 10-year commitment earn the status of "Honorary Member," which is a life-long relationship with the Service League that no longer requires active service.
The application period for membership for the 2019-2020 League year is now OPEN. If you are interested in applying for membership, download the application here. You can print, complete, and mail or email the application along with a recent photograph to the address listed on the application. Completed applications for the 2019 provisional membership class must be postmarked, emailed firstname.lastname@example.org, or submitted in person to an active member of the Service League of Cherokee County by Tuesday, February 5, 2019.
In order to be eligible for admission into the Service League, applicants must:
be women who begin their service between the ages of 25 and 55.
possess a servant’s heart, as well as the ability, desire and time to carry on all phases of the required work of the League.
live and/or work in Cherokee County for one calendar year and must have expected permanency.
be available for mandatory attendance at all League-sponsored fundraising events, including but not limited to the annual Run for the Children 5K, as well as our largest fundraiser, Riverfest Arts & Crafts Festival, held annually during the last weekend of September. Events also include our annual ball held during the month of April and golf tournament held in June.
If you have a heart for children and service here in our local Cherokee County community, and you are able to commit to 10 years of active service, then you may be a great fit for the Service League of Cherokee County.
