Palatine Jaycees plan meeting for prospective members

The Palatine Jaycees will hold a membership night at 7:30 p.m. May 25, at IDOLS Sports Bar on Dundee and Rand roads. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss involvement in the Fourth of July Festival and other Jaycees events with prospective members.

Kate McNally, membership vice president, said each year at the Fourth of July celebration she meets many people who wished they had joined the Jaycees in time to help run the festival. With this membership meeting, she said people can join the Jaycees now, in time to be part of the festival.

Membership meetings are informal so people can get to know members and learn about the organization without feeling pressured to join.

The Palatine Jaycees is an organization that supports Palatine and the people in the community. Every year, it conducts over 150 projects that serve the community and accumulate funds for the operation of the chapter.
