At the January Membership Meeting, we passed our 2009 budget and bylaws. Thanks to everyone who attended so that we could get these two important items passed. Both of these items are on our
website in the Member Login section. If you haven't visited our website recently, please take a look.
Alex has done an excellent job getting the website revamped and full of useful information for
members and those interested in the Jaycees.
February is here along with the Management area's biggest project of the year,
Brewfest! Please contact Clint Drescher if you are able to help with set-up on Friday, Februay 20 or the event on Saturday, February 21. We would like to have as many members as possible help with
this great project that raises money to support so many of our other activities. Please remember to
save your gallon milk jugs. Rinse them thoroughly and give them to Clint. We use these at the event
and need approximately 300 jugs.
If you are looking to travel and meet other Jaycees around the state, it is not too late to attend the Wisconsin Jaycee's Year End Convention in Waupaca on February 6 - 7. The early registration deadline has passed, but you can register right at convention. So far, there are at least five of us who will attend convention. If you would like more details, please let me know.
Management VP 2009
We are in much anticipation as I write this newsletter article. The Mayoral forum is just days away and we look
forward to an awesome turnout as well as making a great presentation in the community. I'll be able to give a better report at the membership meeting or in next month's newsletter as to the outcome of our candidate forum.
January kicked off the new Individual Development year with a Sledding extravaganza at the new Allard house in the
country with a super sledding hill. We gladly welcomed the snow with friends and families as we made paths down the
hill. What an awesome time we had and enjoyed chili & Whitelaw Wieners afterwards! Thanks for coming out for a great day on the hill!!
At February's Membership meeting our guest speaker will be Financial planner Jason Weier who will talk on “Outlook and Opportunities”. Jason will be looking at the stock market, how it is currently and how it looked historically. Please attend the membership meeting at the Best Western on Wednesday, February 4th & stay for the Financial Planning experience afterwards. Please RSVP to me if you'd like to attend and give Jason the courtesy of knowing how many
packets of information to provide for the meeting. Thank you!!
Hopefully you all had a chance to complete your Individual Development survey...we received a number of them, but
not everyone's. So, if you could please bring the survey to the February meeting, email email@example.com or drop it in the mail to (PO Box 1911, Manitowoc). Jen & I would greatly appreciate your feedback. We'll be updating you all
at the membership meeting on what new IDs are planned for the upcoming months.
See you in February!!!
