This Saturday, the 21st we will be at Jordan Lake camping. You are welcome to come and enjoy the campfire, stay the night, or join in on a campsite breakfast...or, of course all of the above. Since this is an individual development project, we will be learning all about the outdoors, so come to share and absorb some knowledge. Please contact me if you are planning on coming so I can give you directions to the campsite.
The NC Jaycees have been longtime partners with North Carolina Jaycee Burn Center in Chapel Hill. We will help celebrate the 30th anniversary of that partnership on Saturday, May 14th with a visit to the Burn Center. at the Carolina Club in Chapel Hill.
The event will start at 10:00. Immediately following the luncheon, we will head over to the Burn Center for a tour and visitation.
Coming to events like this really shows how important some on the work we do really is. For example the tree lot we run each year directly supports the efforts of the NC Jaycee Burn Center.
Congratulations to Karen, Diane, Kirsten, Meghann, Cheryl, and Elizabeth for participating in Raleigh's Fit to Lead 5k event. The race raised money for HOBY East (Hugh O'Brient Youth Leadership), a program to encourage High School students to get involved and develop leadership skills.
We are getting ready to go camping. May is a great time to camp in this area. It's not yet too hot to be out in the wilderness, hiking and building a fire at night. I have lots of contacts that will allow us to use their tents for our outing, so please RSVP soon and let me know what supplies you need to borrow!
We are happy to have provided the Cary community with the Cary Jaycees Photo Contest for the 3rd year in a row! Thanks goes out to Sally Nicols for her wonderful organization and ability to step up and take such a large project. Thank you to Chris Reed for providing so much information and for creating the annual project. The largest thanks goes to the sponsors, and to those that submitted photos, because without your talents we would just be a bunch of plans on paper!
Note to Photo entrants:
Photos may be picked up at Jordan Hall Arts Center during May 1 - May 6 office hours of M-F 9AM-10PM & Sat 9AM-4PM.
