Westy Weekly Aug 27, 2015

Westland Area Jaycees

The temps have cooled, but our calendar has not. We have a lot of things still going on and we are in full swing. This weekend at 10:30AM in Lansing, we will have our Meet the Candidates event for your 2016 MIJC leadership. Yours truly will be in attendance as I run for your District Four Director in 2016. If you’ve never been to a MTC and would like to see it in action, let me know. We will be able to accommodate a couple carpool riders there and back.

Also on the same day is our August International Dinner Event. We will be going to the Greek Festival near Five Mile and 275. There is a Facebook event on the members only page and you can also contact Wendy Zografos for more info. I hope to see many of you there after we head back from Lansing.

Our September GMM is next Tuesday at City Hall and we would love to have have maximum participation. I will also be naming the Elections committee and your nominations for your 2016 board will be heard! Please try to make this GMM!

The Veterans Day 5K is in full swing and we need your help to find participants and sponsors alike. We are putting on the 5K on November 7th at Central City park. We plan to have military units lead the race, running in unit formation, followed by all of the participants. The proceeds from this event will go to help veterans in our area. We are raising money this year for Veterans Haven. This organization has been in the area for a long time and have provided meals, clothing, and other support to some of our neediest heroes. By participating in this event, you are contributing to making their lives better. I implore you to get the word out support them as they have done for us. This is our first year running this, so making a good first impression is key so that we can make this an ongoing and sustaining project here in the area. Attached is the flyer for the event. SHARE IT with everyone and if you know any businesses that would like sponsor information, have them contact me. Your assistance in this project is crucial to its success. I thank you all in advance!
