What Does a Kalamazoo Jaycee Do?
The Kalamazoo Jaycees focus on three areas of development: Community, Individual and Management. Every project we run falls into one of those areas.
The Kalamazoo Jaycees are actively involved in the community in a number of ways. We have raised money for community groups such as Warm Kids and the Child Abuse and Neglect Council, and we have participated in the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.
Our most prominent Community Development project is Ghosts of Kalamazoo Historic Tours – historic tours given at various locations around town, raising money for a local charity.
Other Community Projects have included Bowl for Kid’s Sake, CROP Walk, the City of Kalamazoo Egg Hunt and Model Legislature.
You can learn more about our work in the community by contacting 2013 Community Vice President John Hagan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This area of development covers a wide range, including personal and professional development, social activities and international involvement.
Past and current Individual Development projects include Game & Greets, our General Membership Meetings, Fantastic Friday dinners, Baconfest, International Presentations and Winery Tours.
This area focuses on the “business” aspects of the chapter – excellent for learning time management, strategic planning and organizational finances.
Past and current management projects include the Board of Directors; working the beverage tent at the annual downtown festivals Island Fest and Taste of Kalamazoo; chapter fundraising; and events with the Kalamazoo Chamber of Commerce.
