Word from our Past President
Thank you for joining us in celebrating the impacts made by our dynamic group of active citizens!
As our membership takes on projects and initiatives to bring positive impact in Winnipeg, our friends, sponsors and partners take great pride in supporting all that the Jaycees do. What a pleasure it was to celebrate these achievements with a great meal at East India Company surrounded by the very best of Winnipeg's young active citizens.
As our creed states, service to humanity truly is “the best work of life”. I have seen firsthand how the impact of one can resonate with so many; getting involved in food drives, skill development workshops, mentoring youth and helping Santa onto his float has made our community better.
Like Margaret Mead stated, ”Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful and committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has”.
Here’s to many more years of positive impact ahead!
In Jaycee Spirit,
2014 JCI Winnipeg President
