Notes from the President

Jason Matz, President, 248-227-9992

Eleven months ago I started on my journey as your 54th President of the Rochester Jaycees.  While the year has been quite a whirlwind it is definitely an experience that I will carry with me well after the Jaycees have kicked me out, i.e. aged out.  This year our chapter has seen a lot of changes, we have seen four pillars of our chapter age out and have seen others join and pitch in to help out on our projects.

As we transition from 2009 to 2010 and beyond it is important that each of us do our part to share the Jaycees with everyone we know. While the Jaycees are not for everyone, we do need to share our experiences so people can decide if it is for them.  Invite friends out to events or share a story about the Jaycees.  Please let them decide if the Jaycees are for them.

In December there are many projects for you to take advantage of and participate, such as the Christmas Party, Christmas Parade, Christmas Shopping Tour and of course the General Membership Meeting, please bring a friend.

I would like to thank those members that have been such a great asset to our chapter for so many years. Pam Bubnar, Cheryl Satterthwaite, David Silver, and Elspeth Coats, thank you so much for your years of service and you are always welcome.

Finally, I must thank my Board of Directors for a job well done.   Thank you for your hard work and dedication.  Best of luck for those of you who will be serving on the board next year and I look forward to serving as your Chairman of the Board.
