Miles City Jaycees trying to get started
Posted by Sydnee (+171) 11 years ago
The United States Junior Chamber (Jaycees) gives young people between the ages of 18 and 40 the tools they need to build the bridges of success for themselves in the areas of business development, management skills, individual training, community service, and international connections. The U.S. Junior Chamber is a non-profit corporation/organization as described under IRS code 501

Established in 1920 to provide opportunities for young men to develop personal and leadership skills through service to others, the Jaycees later expanded to include women, reflecting the growing influence and leadership of women in America.

For the past 86 years, Jaycees have been a force for good in America and around the world. Jaycees helped establish AirMail services in America with Jaycee Charles Lindbergh, and have raised millions of dollars for causes such as the Muscular Dystrophy Association and the March of Dimes. They have built parks, playgrounds, hospitals, ball fields, and housing for the elderly while conducting service and support programs in thousands of communities nationwide.

Jaycees can be found in all walks of life: governmental leaders such as past Presidents Bill Clinton and Gerald Ford, business tycoons such as Domino's Pizza mogul Tom Monaghan, registered nurse and former Miss America Kaye Lani Rae Rafko-Wilson, sports heroes like basketball great Larry Bird - name the field and Jaycees can be found at the forefront.

With the focus of the nation on volunteerism, from the smallest towns to the largest cities, the Jaycees are enlarging areas of opportunity for young people.

If you would like to join the Jaycees or have questions our next meeting is Wednesday December 1 in the basement of the Eagles between 6:00 and 6:15. If you have questions you can post on here and I will get back to you.

Good luck. I had a great time as a Jaycee in both Montana and North Dakota. When I lived in Baker we came down to help the Miles City Jaycees with Bucking Horse Sale events and during the Christmas Stroll when they did a Block of Bucks.

The Jaycees are an asset to any community and I wish I was still able to be an active member. Best of luck!

There was about a dozen of us there. Did you go to the Eagles basement through the door on Pleasant street? We meet at the same location that Rotary and Kiwanis meet. Sorry you missed us. The next meeting is at the same place at 6:00PM on Wednesday, December 15th. If you would like, I'd be more than happy to meet with you before then and give you information about the Jaycees.
Thanks,
Jaynee

I think we only need 5 more members to get chartered. Dues are only $25 for a whole year. See everyone there!

Got up to 22 members last night! Now we can charter and be official! Elections will be held at the next meeting in January. You have to be a member to vote and to be elected so join now.
Any ideas for fundraising events or service projects for Miles City?

If your group is excited about Miles City a great project you could undertake RIGHT NOW is to get your entire membership and all their family and friends to CHEER FOR MILES CITY on the We Hear You America website. Miles City ranks 8th in America now but we need LOTS more CHEERS every day until the contest ends in February. Mobilize your membership TODAY! We need CHEERS every day from everyone. It's easy to CHEER. See thread on this website for more info.

Your membership alone could CHEER 2800 times each day. That would be HUGE!

Go for it.

Thanks, Art
