The Senior-Junior Forum, a department of the Woman’s Forum, was formed in 1934.  The organization founded the Northside Girls Club and continued to support it through 1985 to benefit the community.  Since its inception, members have provided volunteer hours and/or financial support for several worthwhile local charities.  Successful fundraisers throughout the years have included everything from horse shows to theatrical productions.  Currently, the major fundraiser, the Red River Wine & Beer Festival, is in its sixteenth year.  In 2009 we celebrated our 75th Anniversary.

Tax Deductible
The organization has been granted 501(c)3 non-profit status by the Internal Revenue Service and all donations are tax deductible.  Net proceeds from the Red River Wine & Beer Festival will be donated to the local charitable organizations supported by the Senior-Junior Forum.
