Foundation Finished

Well, there went January. What has happened in the last six weeks? This weblog, new board members sworn in, Timberlake print drawing, chapter planning meeting, the online calendar, first fireworks committee meeting, all fireworks fundraising letters mailed, and the State Convention.

On the subject of the State Convention, we were presented an award as a Top Five Chapter in North Carolina. Let me take a moment to explain the selection process for this award – I don’t know. I don’t think it had to do with points or money donated. Maybe the presenters saw that we increased our membership, conducted many events throughout the year, and worked well together. It’s a handsome plaque and is meant as a compliment. We are glad to have it. If you know the selection process, post a comment to educate me.

Our first monthly meetings will be Tuesday, February 7th at the Enrichment Center. The board meeting is 6:30 – 7:00pm with the general membership meeting following from 7:00 – 8:00pm. I look forward to seeing you there. Really.

I think the foundation for this year has been laid. Now we can get to business of being Jaycees.

    The state looks at all aspects of a chapter when determining the top chapters – membership, growth, projects run, monies donated. Basically, the top chapters are the most well-rounded chapters in the state.
    Also – CONGRATULATIONS to our 2005 President, Alecia Adams. She received a Hawkins Award as one of the top local chapter presidents in the state. Without her leadership, we would have never made it into the top five!!! — Darla
