A Welcome Letter from District President, Marilyn Morrison

Welcome to the WRJ Mid-Atlantic District website. This is your portal to see what we are all about. Our mission is strong and clear: helping sisterhoods/women’s groups participate effectively in the activities and goals of WRJ; assisting in the organization of new sisterhoods/women’s groups; bringing the sisterhoods/women’s groups into closer cooperation and association with one another to further their respective activities, and helping our sisterhoods/women’s groups achieve their highest potential. We are the link between WRJ and the local sisterhood group.

The District provides ongoing training, support, and hands-on assistance for our sisterhoods. Look around this site and check back often for new information about area days and other district and regional functions.


In Sisterhood,
Marilyn Morrison, President
