Searcy AR Junior Auxiliary Early 70's
Junior Auxiliary was started in Searcy AR in 1960 with a concession stand at the American Legion Park so that youngsters would not have to cross a highway to get a coke. In 1965 the Auxiliary helped begin the Sunshine School. Many ladies have been members and members were required to work a minimum of 72 hours per year with the projects done by JA. It was a fun and hard-working organization.
Looking back at some pictures (Yes, the Daily Citizen used to do great full page features of groups.) I came across these, along with several others. I love the interesting things about the members. So I called this blog Big Hair and Short Skirts. The top pictures shows very short skirts and please do note that the Citizen made a mistake on their left to right naming girls. Reverse it. The second one shows more big hair but the table hides the skirts.
Lots of time has passed. These pictures were from 1971. Some of the members have passed on. Some of the names have changed but the ladies all need to be commended for jobs well done.
