Tap into the Jaycees

The Palatine Jaycees will hold a membership information night mixer, open to the public, on Friday, June 22 at Fox & Hound Tavern in the Ridge Plaza at 910-918 W Dundee Rd in Arlington Heights from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m. to share the benefits of being part of the organization.

Part of JCI USA and JCI International, the Palatine Jaycees create leadership opportunities for members ages 21 to 40. As a young persons’ organization, the Palatine Jaycees offers opportunities to develop personal and professional skills, give back to the Palatine community, and meet new people. Current members of the organization will available to share a beverage and provide more information on the Jaycees.

“We keep our membership information nights informal so that people can get to know a number of the members and learn a bit about the organization,” said Lindsay Schubel Nagle, event organizer. “Each year we oversee the 4th of July festival and provide the fireworks for the Palatine community, award high school scholarships, partner with schools to host a STEM fair, host an annual egg hunt and give community grants. Minus operating expenses, all the funds raised by the chapter go back into the community. We also have a lot of fun hosting regular social events for members and developing leadership skills along the way.”
