Our History

Our Chapter was founded in April 1956 by 18 members of the local DuBois area. Their dedication and passion to make our community a better place has resonated for generations, and continues to do so in the spirit of our current members. 

One of the biggest initiatives that the former members took on was building and maintaining the Jaycees Pool (now known as the City Pool). This contribution from our former Jaycees has been a huge asset to our community, and continues to be a popular spot for kids and families throughout the summer months. This project cost $125,000 to complete, and has brought summer fun for thousands of people in the DuBois area. 

Below are the 18 founding members of the Jaycees organization that we have to thank and recognize for their ambition and contributions to the DuBois area and overall Jaycee organization:
