A Note From the President {July 19, 2016}


Isn’t it funny that no matter how long you’ve been out of school, you never shake the undeniable feeling of it being summertime. Except now there’s no summer break, work continues on despite your best effort to avoid it, and although you might get a mini vacation (or longer if you’re better at saving up vacation days than I am) it just doesn’t compare to the 2+ months off we got for so many years of our young adult lives.

Over here at Jaycees HQ (just kidding, we live out of a P.O. box) it’s obvious that we’re pining for the freedom from obligations we once had as kids – we’ve got only one activity on the books for the rest of July, and it’s a mixer. We need to save our energy and evenings for things like the Twilight Concert Series and riding the new Expo line back and forth across town BECAUSE WE CAN.

Hope you’re enjoying your summer and avoiding as many adult activities as possible!
