Although Kimberly Juniors is an instructional organization, you may see KJs in uniform engaging the community in different capacities throughout the year.
Princess at the Castle
Annually, members participate in the Kimberly Crest Princess at the Castle event. Girls ages 3 through 10 arrive dressed in their finest princess outfit and enjoy time with Kimberly Juniors. Our members read, dance with, face paint and entertain the children. The event concludes with a final proclamation, wherein all of the attendees are presented, hand-in-hand with a KJ, and declared to be royal princesses.
Holiday Community Activities
In December, KJs wear their uniform for a special day of holiday shopping benefiting Family Services of Redlands. They put energy and thought into each toy purchase to make the holiday a little more special for many children.
KJs also participate in uniform at the annual Redlands Christmas Parade, an evening event during which they ride on a specially decorated float and distribute candy to children in attendance.
Summer Community Activities
During the summer, Kimberly Juniors may be asked to participate in off-season activities that heighten public awareness of the organization and promote community outreach. These traditions include:
- Walking in the Redlands 4th of July Parade
- Ushering during an evening performance at the invitation of the Redlands Bowl
Because these events take place outside of the regular meeting year, parents will be notified of these opportunities via email.
