1.) What made you want to join the Jaycees?

The year I was President of the DuBois Area Jaycees, our chapter had the most members in the entire state of Pennsylvania.

The importance of friendship and hard work and giving back to the community we love and call home.
4.) What would you tell those who were interested in the joining Jaycees?
It’s a fantastic way to learn about how they give back to our community. Since I have been a member of the DuBois Area Jaycees and still today, my family and I (six of us), each year continue to deliver Thanksgiving dinners on Thanksgiving morning.
5.) What was your favorite Jaycee event?
The year I was president, the Jaycee Lottery drawing that year was fantastic we raised a record amount of money or the Jaycees and the community and had some of the best prizes that I can think of.
