MORRIS COUNTY CHAPTER CHAPTER HISTORY

The Morris County Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. was organized by Maria Pryor and Carol Wilson, with the help of several interested mothers. The group was officially formed on September 14, 1980 and later became the Interest Group of Morris County.

On March 4, 1981, the first officers were elected and committees were formed to establish guidelines and procedures to facilitate the journey toward official chapter status. From that point forward, monthly activities were held and civic projects were undertaken, most notably: Black Expo 1982, a family picnic at Sugarloaf, a parents’ mixer, a Christmas party, and other holiday festivities, all successfully planned and executed under the leadership of the first Executive Board, helmed by President Maria Pryor.

Between August 1981 and November 1982, Morris County status progressed from Interest Group to Provisional Group. The group’s efforts were finally rewarded when Morris County was installed as a Provisional Chapter on November 6, 1982 at the National Convention in Chicago, Illinois. It followed that the first children’s program year was completed May 1983. Since its formation, the Chapter Presidents include the following dedicated ladies:
