End of the Oshkosh Jaycees

On Tuesday, October 20th, the Board & General Membership meetings were held and a dissolution was discussed and then voted on by members in attendance. The vote to dissolve as of December 31, 2015, was passed unanimously.

Following the vote was a sad moment of silence as everyone in attendance reflected on what this group had meant to them.

I think it was a surreal moment for all of us. I know when I joined over 10 years ago, I never would have thought I would see this moment. We tried, but the reality is that people have just moved on. Whether it be family, work, or other service groups, there are just so many things competing for our time.

The Community Foundation Fund will remain managed by past board and general members.

Remaining funds were dispersed to the Community Foundation and Washington Elementary.

Oshkosh Jaycees at the Backlot Comedy House

 

The Jaycees are taking over the Backlot Comedy House!

Are you starting to feel the winter blahs? As they say, laughter is the best medicine! Join us Friday February 13th for a night of fun and laughs.  In lieu of the annual banquet and get together we are having an improv comedy night.

The event will go from 6-8pm and will include food from Lara’s Tortilla Flats, soda & water (cash bar available) an improv show and a mini-workshop.  The Jaycees are picking up half the bill so its only $20 per person (this would make a great date night…hint hint).  Do you know someone that would be a perfect Jaycee? Invite them to come along! Make sure to invite family and friends, everyone is welcome!  You can send questions or your rsvp to board@jcioshkosh.org.

Please make sure to let us know by Wednesday February 11th if you want to attend so we can provide a final count.  This is sure to be a night to remember!
