Westy Weekly – June 11th, 2015


Greetings Friends!

I hope you are all enjoying the warmer weather now, despite all of the random thunderstorms we are seeing. I actually took the car out today and wouldn’t you know it, a quick thunderstorm. The car hasn’t seen rain in 12 years,.. til today. Time to reset the clock I suppose.

Last weekend was Relay for Life, and what a tremendous event it was. First and foremost, a big congrats and thank you to Rebeka Beresford for taking the lead on the project and helping us reach Silver Level ($3700 raised!). Rebeka and her team did a fantastic job. Id also like to thank Andy Beresford for all of his hard work during the event with the jail cell and setup / tear down. Many many thanks to all who helped and attended. Also, I would like to recognize April Hendryx, Callie Hubbard, Debi Goetz, Anna Gibes, and Damian Bennett for serving on the Main Relay Committee. It was a great event!

Jaycee Park clean up is approaching. This is set for noon on 28 Jul and will run til 6PM or so. Callie and Linda held a committee meeting today and it looks like they made some great strides in the planning department. Its going to come down to getting materials and getting us all there to roll up our sleeves. Ill let Callie give you more information, but clear your calendar if it is not already booked!

Are you working on your degrees? Are you looking for other activities in the area and other Jaycee Functions to attend outside of Westland? Be sure to like the MIJC Post it Here page on Facebook to see what is going on in our district and more for more information! There are plenty of projects, socials, and even some trainings coming up soon that I would encourage you to attend.

Also a friendly reminder, this Saturday is Richards Grad Party and you are all invited. Come on by, have some food, hang out at Club Westy, and try to pass on some pearls of wisdom to a young man entering Adult life. I would also love to see all of you as well. There will also be a contingent of Redford Jaycees as well, so it promises to be a good time!

Dont forget about the upcoming POKER rooms at Malarkeys. If you havent signed up for a slot, please do so ASAP. This is very crucial to our revenue for the year. The sign up sheet is on the members only page. You can either edit the form or simply make a note of what you can do and we will make the changes for you.

Have a great week and Ill see you all soon!
