Now for the updates concerning Jaycee Week events!

Jaycee Week is a celebration of our organizations birthday. Update: Great job Sharon Marshall for coordinating this festive week.

January 17th Sunday -- St. Joe Church Visitation - 7:45 a.m. at the church. Update: Spirits were uplifted and songs were sung as we paid tribute to the first line of our Jaycee Creed... "Faith in God gives meaning and purpose to human life."

January 17th Sunday -- Movie Night - 7:00 p.m. at the theater. Update: "Patch Adams" starring Robin Williams is a must see... fun, laughter and tears... Two thumbs up!

January 21st Thursday -- Membership Meeting and ID Program - 7:00 p.m. at the Jaycee Clubhouse. (Bring cat or dog food) Note this is NOT a carry in dinner.

The winning Scavenger Hunt Team was the "Go Go Girls" consisting of Patty Wildt, Carlee Whitledge and Nora Mae Amis. Great job girls!

It has been a tradition for many years that on Saturday of Jaycee Week we have a carry-in dinner followed by a scavenger hunt. I have listed below some of the possible items that may (or may not) be on this years list. I hope this is helpful and we hope to see you on Saturday, January 23, 1999 at the clubhouse.
