[April 14, 2014]  Looking for a way to make a difference in your community? Maybe you have wished that you could join forces with other like-minded adults in raising funds and accomplishing worthwhile community projects.

You can make a difference. And, if you are a young adult, you can do it all while having a good time and expanding your professional and personal skill sets as a member of the Jaycees.

The Lincoln Jaycees work year-round and place particular emphasis on enhancing the lives of local children. The organization hosts various community and fundraising projects. In 2014, the project list includes participation in the Logan County Relay For Life, Lawnmower Clinic, Easter Egg Hunt, Haunted House and Angel Tree.

Where many hands join together, light is the burden and much achieved. The Lincoln Jaycees are a great group of people that are welcoming new members to help fill dreams. Just show up at one of the Lincoln meetings or events, or express your interest through the online website, and you'll be on your way to becoming a proud Lincoln Jaycee.

Meetings are on the third Sunday of the month at 2 p.m. at the Lincoln Jaycees Center, 325 S. Chicago St.

Jaycee history

Henry Giessenbier founded the Jaycees in 1920, with 3,000 members, in St. Louis, Missouri. It was Henry's vision to provide young people with opportunities which they had little or no access to otherwise attain. He believed that young people could change the world. He was right.

His theory was simple to offer leadership opportunities to young people, giving them hands-on experience through serving the community. That concept has never wavered.
