Junior League of Monroe: Spring Market.

Committee members, Megan Sharp and Julie Hansen from the Junior League of Monroe join us to talk about the Spring Market.
Spring is on it’s way and with it comes the Junior League of Monroe’s Spring Market, sponsored by Community Trust Bank. The 16th annual Spring Market will open to the public on Friday, March 21, 2014. The Market opens Friday morning at 8:30 a.m. with the classic event, “Shop ‘Til You Drop!”, brought to you by The Mulhearn Corporation. This event features a champagne brunch catered by The Coffee Bean, entertainment by Rod Allen Payne, and extended shopping until 11:00 a.m. Tickets for this event are $30. General shopping is open to the public on Friday from 11:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. That evening, Spring Market’s signature event, “Girls Just Want to Have Fun!”, brought to you courtesy of Progressive Bank, commences at 6:00 p.m., and includes catering by Thurman’s Food Factory with four buffet stations – that means more time for Shopping! The evening also includes entertainment by Mike McKenzie, door prizes, preferred shopping, and of course, everyone’s favorite “Market-ritas.” Tickets for Girls Just Want to Have Fun are $40. Following Friday’s big kick-off, the Market opens for general shopping Saturday from 9:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m., and Sunday from 12:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. General shopping tickets are $6 in advance, and $8 at the door. No Strollers allowed, please. Tickets can be purchased by contacting Terri Arthur at the League House at (318) 322-3236. You may also stop by the League House, located at 2811 Cameron Street in Monroe at any time between 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday.

This year the Junior League of Monroe is thrilled to announce a new event focused on family fun. Breakfast with the Bunnies will make its debut on Saturday, March 22, 2014. This event will feature a light breakfast, a photo shoot with live bunnies by an area photographer with portrait packages available, a visit from Peter Cottontail himself, a book reading, balloons, children’s activities and more! The ticket cost for Breakfast with the Bunnies is $15 per family and will include one general admission re-admittance ticket, to be used on Saturday or Sunday. The Provisional Member class of 2013 -2014 is taking pride in handling this event as part of their Spring Market project.

The thoughts of shopping with merchants from all over the country and all of Spring Market’s special events are enough to make anyone wish it were already March! If that doesn’t grab your attention, perhaps you would be interested in a raffle ticket for either a 7 night, Maui Vacation Giveaway or $5000 cash, your choice! The drawing for this raffle will be on Sunday, March 23rd. Tickets for a Preferred Shopping Event Raffle that no woman can refuse, will also be sold at “Shop til you Drop” and “Girls Just Want to Have Fun!”, with the winner chosen at the Friday night festivities.

Please join us and experience Spring Market’s Gathering of Gifts and Gardening at the Monroe Civic Center from March 21 – 23, 2014. We look forward to seeing you at the Market!!
