What We Do
Josephine Circle is all about raising funds for our interest-free loan and scholarship programs. While we work hard to ensure the success of our major fundraiser, the annual luncheon/silent auction/fashion show, we have a lot of fun along the way. Monthly meetings are highlighted with bazaars, raffles and programs on timely topics.
