An Autumnal Update

2021 MNRF Jaycee Beer Sales Committee

Happy Autumn! Congratulations 2021 Shakopee Jaycees. You made it through nine weekends straight of working hard to make your community a better place! I hope that all of you were able to sleep in and be a bit lazy this past weekend.

That being said, we still have some very exciting events on the horizon!

Our October General Membership Meeting will be at 7:30pm this Thursday, the 21st. You may attend at the office (121 Lewis St S, Shakopee) or online via zoom: https://zoom.us/j/98252672011 Both the office and the Zoom Room will be opened at 7pm to allow for some social time before the meeting, so that the meeting may start promptly at 7:30.

Our fall commitment to Adopt-A-Highway is coming up this weekend. Come join us on Sunday at 10am-we will meet at the Holiday Stationstore at 3901 Eagle Creek Blvd. The chapter will provide lunch after the cleanup.

The Early Bird Registration deadline for Annual Convention is October 31st. If you register by that deadline, and mail a good-faith check to the chapter for your registration, the convention will be paid for by the chapter [fine print: check will not be cashed unless you decide not to come to convention AND you must attend the trainings laid out by the Board of Directors]. You can sign up here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe6t5zcC-DyBc_Q_00HaD-1eoMkDnj8mT0XyvmBBAxfsSMrog/viewform?fbclid=IwAR2lYtpAz7yccC7cSwQivhx5n5JhPXNbkG0cvCLWam0oNYZLPvt0K4Z1sQ4

In lieu of our usual lab night on Thursday, November 4th, we will open the office at 7pm for anyone who would like to use the space to work on some personal arts and crafts projects.

Save the Date! November 14th, JCI Shakopee will be hosting a formalwear exchange! Time to clean out those closets, and if you find a dress, suit, or kilt you no longer fit into, or maybe you just don’t see yourself wearing it again, bring it to our formalwear exchange, and maybe you’ll go home with your new convention outfit! Accepting all men and ladies formalwear and accessories. Must be in good condition. Donation not necessary to participate.
