On April 7, 1987, eleven ladies attended an informational meeting and agreed Junior Auxiliary would benefit the Cabot community. At the time, Cabot had a population of 6168 people and was still considered a small town. These ladies collected information about the needs of Cabot residents and solicited support from Cabot businesses and city officials and convinced them a need existed for an organization like Junior Auxiliary, an organization solely dedicated to the needs of children.
When the Junior Auxiliary of Cabot petitioned the national organization for a charter, twenty-nine women signed the petition. Officers elected at the time were:
The charter members included the officers listed above and Ginger Aldridge, Bernice Cook, Debbie DaBoll, Linda Edmondson, Gayle Elbert, Marsha Goings, Suzanne Hammond, Lyn Hicks, Paula Inman, Vickie Jones, Susie Magie, Lana Manry, Wanda May, Linda McCrery, Harriet Meadows, Cindy Mahlen, Paula Peppers, Jana Smith, Judy Smith, Ellen Thompson, and Barbara Mielke.
These ladies met at noon on the first Tuesday of the month at the First United Methodist Church. Their focus was helping the children of Cabot. The very first Christmas Blessing was held at the home of Martha Feland and proved to be one of the most successful service projects of the club. Judith Coats served as President for the first three years until the club was successfully chartered on October 17, 1989, the same day as the World Series San Francisco earthquake.
