Rebecca Johnson and I (Dana Kaufman) went to Garner today for the area meeting. While we were there Rebecca competed in the novice category for the Speak Up Competition and won. She will be competing on the state level Sat. May 5th in Asheboro. We (The CCJC’s) were recognized as 2nd in the area for Membership Recruitement, and I received an award for Outstanding Area Leader for the Trimester. It was a wonderful feeling to go into a room with Jaycees from all over the area and to be recognized for our efforts. I hope that all of you can attend the Spring Convention in Durham Sat. May 19th, if for no other reason than to see the awards that we as a chapter walk away with.
