The Tallahassee Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. was formally established September 15, 1951, as Florida's first Jack and Jill chapter. Now, nearly 70 years old, we have maintained active participation in promoting the ideals of our National office. Since inception, the focus of our activities has been to work with and include the parents and children of families other than ours, and to engage in projects for the betterment of the local, state and national community.
