This Week In Saginaw Jaycees! Vol. 8; 2016
April 6, 2016
My Fellow Jaycees,
I hope this message finds you in good health and spirit! The first event listed in this message is a very important one. The city of Westland has donated a large shipment of water to help Flint. The Westland Jaycees need some help unloading it. As a chapter that is so close to this crisis, I think we should be there to help. I know it is short notice, but if you are able to attend, please do so! I will be going, and would be happy to carpool. It’s a great opportunity to help a local community in need, as well as get to know Jaycees from another part of the state.
Be There!!!- Flint Water Shipment W/ Westland Jaycees, April 9 @11am
Who: Jaycees, family and friends
What: Unload a large shipment of bottled water in Flint
When: Saturday, April 9, @ 11am
Where: City of Flint Refuge Center, 1213 w. second St., Flint. MI. 48503.
The D5 Social at Mountain Town Brewing Company went great! There were about a dozen Jaycees from around District 5 (seven chapters from Burton to Clare.) Jeff, one of their brewers, gave us a tour of their facility and talked us through the brewing process for all kinds of different types of brew. This included a beer called a Gruit, which predates the use of hops and was originally brewed in the middle ages over an open fire! It was wonderful to see everyone and have an fun afternoon together.
If you missed this social, hopefully you can make the next one in June. We will be having dinner in Saginaw, with a company called Gourmet Gone Wild. Gourmet Gone Wild is a company which teaches people how to cook with locally available fish and game. More information can be found on the members facebook page, on the Gourmet Gone Wild website, and will follow in a future email.
