A Note From the President {July 6, 2016}


And just like that, 2016 is halfway over. The Jaycees have had an insanely-packed first half of the year, so to relax a bit we’re throwing on our slippers (Hawaiian for flip-flops), pouring ourselves a mai tai, and eating pineapple everything at tonight’s July Membership Meeting. We have a lot to celebrate:

3 Community Events
Peter Rabbit Day, Dogtown Crawl (apparently photo evidence is frowned upon for this one), and Huck Finn Day

7 Guest Speakers
Thank you to all of the amazing community leaders who have come to share their wisdom at our Membership Meetings and Civic Engagement Meetings!

9 Volunteer/Community Service Opportunities
See us in action

10 New Members
Welcome to the group Jaimie, Elyse, Ilias, Holly, Karen, Jaclyn, Dom, Ken, Mojdih, and Alexandra!

The second half of the year is shaping up to be equally as great, so as always, stay up on what the Jaycees have cooking, and join us whenever you can.

July Membership Meeting: Luau Edition

You know the drill: cheap(ish) drinks, good conversation, awesome local location, etc. etc.

Happy birthday month to the July babies!
