The Lincoln Jaycees organization, a not-for-profit group, serves
Lincoln and the surrounding communities. The organization gives
young people between the ages of 18 and 40 the tools they need to
build the bridges of success for themselves in the areas of business
development, management skills, individual training, community
service and international connections.
The Lincoln Jaycees host various community activities, such as an
Easter egg hunt, the Senior Feast, Breakfast with Santa and the
Angel Tree. The Jaycees have a variety of management and fundraising
projects such as a haunted house and Lincoln Speedway 50/50.
Meetings are at 7 p.m. the third Thursday of every month at
Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital and are open to everyone.
