If youâve ever Googled the phrase âvolunteering in Houston,â youâll find hundreds of organizations that you can connect with. One of the oldest though — and a solely female volunteer group — is the Houston Junior Forum. Itâs been around for 67 years with a focus on helping kids and senior Houstonians — all while wearing a red apron. Except once a year when the president of the organization dons the most intricately designed a-lined skirt, handmade by the other members of the forum. Unless youâre a member of the Junior Forum, youâve probably never seen one of these skirts until, as Houston Matters Edel Howlin reports, The Heritage Society decided to put them on display in an exhibit called Women at Work for Your Community.
