About The National League of American Pen Women:

The Boca Raton Branch of the National League of American Pen Women (NLAPW) is an organization of professional women in the arts – writers, artists and music composers. Established 43 years ago, the Boca Raton Branch is one of the largest branches in the country.

Members have opportunities to interact with other professional women and showcase their creative work in public forums. Workshops, art exhibits, lectures, music programs, competitions and special events are offered. The Branch supports the local community through outreach programs and scholarships awards.

The National League, headquartered in Washington, D.C., is the oldest women’s organization in the U.S. Throughout its 120-year-history, the NLAPW has attracted many prominent women to its rosters, including Eleanor Roosevelt, Pearl Buck, Erma Bombeck and Edna Hibel. Vinnie Ream, whose statue of President Lincoln stands in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda, was an early member of the NLAPW.

From October to April, the Boca Raton Branch holds luncheon programs, featuring interesting and inspiring speakers. Guests are welcome to attend the luncheons and meet our creative members. To register for a luncheon, visit our Web site and download a reservation form.

TOWN OF JUPITER ANNUAL JUBILEE

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 3rd  

FREE

11 – 4 

 

The Jupiter Jubilee is an annual community event put on by the Town of Jupiter for area residents. The Jubilee typically has entertainment, civic, educational, and cultural components.

The Town of Jupiter has been holding the Jubilee the first week of February since 2003. Its genesis was the town’s 75th Anniversary Celebration in 2000, when a community event was held at the municipal complex. This original event brought the community together to celebrate life in Jupiter, and was so successful that town leaders began planning for an annual event.

Each year, the Jubilee highlights Jupiter’s unique character, history, community and natural treasures. In the spirit of conservation, the Jubilee is a Green event, and vendors, exhibits and attendees are encouraged to recycle, re-use, and conserve.

Free parking is available at Jupiter High School, just south of the Jupiter Community Center, on Military Trail. Free shuttles will operate continuously throughout the event, back and forth from the high school and the Jubilee.
