Creating Positive Change

Since 1957, the Palatine Jaycees has been a group of active young citizens (21 to 40) providing leadership development and community service opportunities to its members. And, best of all, we have a ton of fun doing it! Involvement in the Palatine Jaycees is a great way to meet new people, build new friendships, learn new skills and make a positive impact in Palatine.

The Palatine Jaycees hold their monthly meetings the third Thursday of the month at Durty Nellies in Palatine at 7:30 pm. Join us to find out more about what we are about or visit one of our upcoming events. You can also reach out to us at info@palatinejaycees.org for more information.


Annual Christmas Tree Sale

In its 60th year, the Palatine Jaycees will be selling Christmas trees to the community this year. We pride ourselves on selling fresh trees from Michigan and offering varieties such as Douglas Fir, Balsam Fir and Frasier Fir. The lot is open the day after Thanksgiving from 9am to 9pm and additional Friday 6pm to 9pm. Each Saturday from 9am to 9pm and Sunday from 10a to 6pm. We accept cash, check and now Square payments.
