Membership in the Boone Service League is open to all women 21 years of age or older living in the High Country Area including the Watauga, Avery, and Ashe Counties of North Carolina. Those who wish to join or simply want to visit and learn more about our organization are welcome at any meeting.
Established in 1957 as an auxiliary women's organization to the Boone Jaycees, the Boone Service League has grown to be one of the High Country's largest women's service groups. Today, the organization boasts a membership of 60 and is openly seeks new members who are interested in providing much-needed service while meeting new friends. The purpose of the Boone Service League is to provide individual development and leadership experience for women and to promote community service.
Throughout the year the Boone Service League serves the High Country through a number of events and services. Motown in the Mountains Dance and Silent Auction are our largest fundraisers. These two events are largely responsible for the thousands of dollars given through grants to local non-profit organizations. Throughout the year Service League members are busy in various community programs meeting a multitude of needs.
In 2013, the Boone Service League awarded $7,000 to the following organizations:
- Children’s Advocacy Center of the Blue Ridge
- Hospitality House
- Green Street Catering
- Appalachian State University on Behalf of Appalachian Senior Center
- Watauga County Dept. of Social Services
- Hunger & Health Coalition

Boone Service League has helped our non-profit so much with their generosity and relentless work to serve our community. They are constantly looking for ways to raise and distribute funding as well as serve physically in whatever ways they can to care for the needs of our community. They have helped provide funding and foods to our non-profit, Green Street Catering, which serves over 400 free meals every week and gave out over 700 free holiday food baskets to Watauga County. It is their sensitivity to the needs of Watauga County and their HUGE hearts to give and serve that allow us to continue serving the sweet people of our community. So thankful for Boone Service League!! -- Chastity Lesesne, Green Street Catering
