DEAR EDITOR: We commend the efforts of the Baton Rouge Jaycees (Junior Chamber of Commerce) to improve the quality of life in the surrounding communities of East Baton Rouge Parish and for its development of past and future community leaders.

While improving the quality of life in East Baton Rouge Parish, the Baton Rouge Jaycees provides its male and female members age 21-39 with opportunities for leadership development, volunteerism and community service.

The United States Jaycees has devoted itself to providing leadership, rendering services and returning benefits to the community “100 fold” in a variety of endeavors.

It has contributed to such humanitarian projects as assistance with the elderly, fund raising for the disadvantaged, specialized care for children and countless other efforts to address community needs.

The Jaycees organization has adopted the basic tenets of purpose, fellowship, free enterprise, government of laws, human personality and service to humanity.

We encourage those individuals or companies who are interested in improving the quality of life in St. John the Baptist Parish to participatein the re-formation of a new LaPlace Jaycees chapter. Please join theBaton Rouge Jaycees in their efforts to help our parish stimulate community service activism.
