“My team and I are excited by the continued growth of the chapter and the new projects that we will be launching in 2019,” said Rob Doty, Palatine Jaycee President. “The Palatine Jaycees have always been involved in our community with projects like our Fourth of July celebration, Hometown Fest, our annual Easter Egg Hunt, and our annual Christmas tree sale. We have also started new community initiatives in the past few years, such as Fit Family Field Day and STEM fairs. All of the profits from our projects are donated back into the community in the form of donations, scholarships, grants and community events. With the new members that are joining and their contributions to the chapter, look for more Jaycee projects and donations in the Palatine area.”
