Welcome to the Senior Junior Forum (SJF) of Wichita Falls’ web site. Senior-Junior Forum is a non-profit organization whose mission is to benefit the community. We are a diverse group of women, comprised of approximately 120 members, who fulfill this mission through volunteering our time and through monetary donations to various organizations in the Wichita Falls community. Our goal is to serve our community and help improve the lives of others. Each of our members has a heart for serving others and a love for the Wichita Falls community.
We host two major fundraisers each year. First, the Annual Woman's Forum Christmas Tour of Homes on December 8, 2022. Our second and largest is the Annual Red River Wine & Beer Festival set for March 25, 2023. Please like our page on Facebook and visit our website for more information at http://redriverwinefestival.com
All the net proceeds from this event directly support our charities. The event offers participants the opportunity to sample various wines and beers, listen to live music, enjoy fabulous food from local food vendors and purchase merchandise through participating vendors at the festival. It's a great time to kick back and have fun while supporting the community! We hope you will join us for this exciting wine and beer tasting event.
Our 2022-23 service organizations which we support through volunteer hours and/or monetary donations include:
- The Arc of Wichita County
- Beacon Lighthouse for the Blind
