This Weeks Westy comes from Rebecca Markonni!
Happy Summer Team Westy!! The weather is warming up and trips to the beach are frequent. We know that everyone is super busy enjoying the rays so the board has been busy creating some weather friendly projects for the next month.
*The All American BBQ Throwdown is just around the corner. August 15!! If you know of anyone that would be interested in registering their very own best of BBQ item please send an email to WestlandAreaJayceesbbq@gmail.c
*Who loves gyro’s and saganaki (OPA!)?? Our August International dinner will be at the Livonia Greek Festival! We will meet around 1pm on August 29. If you have never tried Greek cuisine then this is a great inexpensive opportunity to enlighten your taste buds.
*The August GMM is NOT at city hall. We are having a short agenda and then sharing some past Jaycee stories (and yummy food) with some of our past alumni. The meeting will be held at Jaycee Park in Westland, beginning at 6:30 pm. If you know any Alumni, be sure to bring them out. There is NO COST to attend and we look forward to seeing you all!
*While we are enjoying the weather we would like to invite all of our “Jaycee Family” to participate in family fun day August 8. The adventure begins at 9am and will end at 10pm approximately. First a trip to Mayberry Farm where we will also enjoy a sac lunch, then to Newburgh lake for canoeing, fishing, hiking and relaxing, followed by a BBQ at the Markonni’s where we will end the night with movie in the yard. The cost for this all day event is $15 per person (this includes lunch and dinner) Money is due to Rebecca Markonni or April Hendryx by August 1. Please let us know if you are interested in attending and we will send you a registration packet.
REMEMBER – The D4 Social is this SUNDAY at Westland’s Jaycee Park! Starts at 1pm!
*The Veterans Day 5K is well into planning and registration has begun. You can register to participate at www.westlandareajaycees.org
