                                                   Presidential Update
   As most of you know, the Delano Jaycees have just made it through the busiest time of our year. The final beer was poured at the
Delano Fourth of July Celebration, a new tradition of watching the sun rise the morning of July 5 has been continued (yes, I admit I ducked
out early and missed the beautiful sunrise this year), and though our biggest project is done, the year is only half over and there is much
more for the Jaycees to accomplish throughout the remainder of the year.
   First of all, a huge thank you to everyone who helped make the Fourth of July Celebration in Delano a success. This year, the Jaycees
and our volunteer organizations poured 152 kegs of beer (which is a record since going to strong beer), and 120 cases of Mike‟s Hard
Lemonade. We will know in October the proceeds each member organization that makes up the Fourth of July Committee will receive, and
we are looking forward to giving those dollars back to the Delano community. Some potential changes being explored for next year
include larger glasses, overlapping of shifts, along with the possibilities of kickball and beanbag tournaments.
   A special recognition to our treasurer Alex Roeser for being honored with not only a Presidential Medallion from Minnesota Jaycees
President Jason Gadd while working in the beer stand, but also for being recognized as this year‟s Commodore Award recipient by the
Minneapolis Aquatennial and Delano Royalty Organization! Thank you, Alex, for all your hard work, dedication to the chapter, and
continually always looking ahead to that next project and having those new, innovative ideas that allow the chapter to raise funds to do
what you love to do best – pump money back into the community.
   Next, I want to recognize our very own Delano Jaycee Alex Forster, a former Miss Delano, who was crowned the Minneapolis
Aquatennial‟s Queen of the Lakes July 24 in Minneapolis! Thank you, Alex, for everything you have done and will continue to do for the
Delano community. You truly are an awesome ambassador, and the chapter wishes you much success in the new adventure you are
   In other news, the Jaycees decided not to do another highway clean-up at this time, and will revisit the subject this fall. We also decided
to take a hiatus from the golf tournament this fall, as well, and are in the planning stages of reviving the Jaycees Haunted House. Watch for
more details to follow on this exciting new project!
   In the meantime, August will be another busy month for the chapter. It actually kicks off at the end of July, with a Delano Jaycee team,
coordinated by Jodi Baumgard, at the Relay for Life in Delano beginning Friday, July 31 going into the morning hours of Saturday, Aug.
1. If you are in town during this time, stop down at Central Park and visit with the Jaycees team and show your support! Visit our web site
for a link to our Relay team‟s web site. Also watch next month‟s newsletter for an update on the Relay.
   The Jaycees are also kicking around hosting a booth at the second annual Taste of Delano Wednesday, Aug. 5 from 5-8 p.m. at Central
Park. Watch the web site for more details on this.
   The following weekend will be the annual garage sale, coordinated by Nichole Krause and Laura Schumacher, at Alex Roeser‟s
residence Friday and Saturday, Aug. 7-8 from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day (see attached flyer for more details).
   And finally in August, the Jaycees will be manning the hot dog stand at Coborn‟s for two weekends – Friday and Saturday, Aug. 14-15,
and also Friday and Saturday, Aug. 28-29. Volunteers are still needed to staff these two weekends – this is an easy fundraising event and
we appreciate the opportunity Coborn‟s provides us to raise some funds. Contact Nathan Dalbec to sign up at (763) 972-2951.
   I think that brings us to the end of August – where has 2009 gone?? Hard to believe the year is half over already. That being said, with
our major project behind us, I am looking forward to continued successes within the chapter, and will be looking hard at recruiting a few
new members to step up and become involved in our various projects. If you know anyone who would be a good candidate to join the
Jaycees and become involved, please have them contact me.
   Remember . . . “It‟ll be Fine in „09!”
