"It gets my husband out of the house." - Jane

"When I was a high school senior, I got a small $500 grant for college.  At that time, my family really could use the money but more important, it gave me a great boost of confidence in my continuing education and for my future.  It wasn't from a Jaycee organization but that doesn't matter.  Helping the Westfield Jaycees raise money for college scholarships is a way to pay back." - Jim

"Camp Jaycee is great.  Dads and kids.  My kids look forward to it all year.  They talk about it more than our trip to Disney World." - Bob

"You meet guys from outside your normal circle of friends, family, and place of worship.  And doing something together - like running a car raffle or pumpkin painting at the Children's hospital - is doing something more than what you could do on your own." - Dave

"The Jaycees have everything.  If you need a dentist, a pediatric dentist, lawyer, landscaper, computer guy, graphic artist, insurance salesman, shipping expert, general contractor, mattress manufacturer, educator, financial advisor, accountant, acupuncturist, architect, electrical engineer, printer, or realtor there is someone that does that.  And you can get great recommendations for anything." - John
