An exhibit marking 100 years of the Junior League of Dallas is coming to NorthPark Center.

The centennial exhibit — “Legacy of Leadership, Devotion to Dallas” — is on view Jan. 27 through Feb. 17 and includes historical documents, memorabilia and photos. See it on Level One near Bread Winners.

Another exhibit showing the history of the organization was displayed in October at the Hall of State in Fair Park.

In 1922, 40 women established the Junior League of Dallas out of a commitment to make a difference. Now, almost 5,000 women are a part of this organization.

More than 200 organizations, including Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center, the Dallas Museum of Art, Promise House and the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, have benefited from the league’s volunteers. These organizations will be recognized in the exhibit.

“The Centennial team and our members have been working passionately to bring the history of the league back to life through this special exhibit,” Andrea Cheek, the co-chair of the Centennial, said in a press release. “There are so many stories to be told, and it has been inspiring to see all of the work the Junior League of Dallas has done around Dallas over the last 100 years.”

There will also be a volunteer fair 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Feb. 12 where people can learn more about the nonprofits the league supports and how to volunteer.
