Please join the Lake Elmo Jaycees for our Adopt-A-Highway project, with a NEW twist!

This year we are adding a fun twist, a Scavenger Hunt!  As participants help clean up the highway leading into Lake Elmo, they will look for "treasures" along the way.  Prizes will be awarded based on the treasures you find!

Saturday, October 18, 2014.

We will be meeting at 10am in the parking lot of the Target located in Oakdale on Highway 5.  Bags, vests, and water will be provided. Please bring your own gloves.  

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED:   We are responsible for a 2 mile stretch of highway 5 going though Lake Elmo, so the more help we have, the faster we can get it done!!! Please feel free to bring any children over the age of 12.

Who Are The Lake Elmo Jaycees?

The Lake Elmo Jaycees is a leadership development organization for young adults 18-40, in and around St. Croix Valley Area.

As a civic organization for young people, the Lake Elmo Jaycees are developing the next generation of leaders by providing opportunities to stand up and take action in our communities.

We engage members through project management and social entrepreneurship that will make an impact in their communities and build leadership skills.

Our chapter is comprised of young adults who volunteer their time to benefit the community. Whether the need is for manpower or money, we are there to help! We provide manpower at many events, some are our own events, but we also partner with various organizations and groups have the require help too. Additionally, we contribute by raising money through community projects, fundraisers and charitable gambling for needs that the community and its people may have.

And we have a lot of fun while doing it!

We put on the annual celebration know statewide as Huff n’ Puff, which is held every 2nd weekend in August.

The Lake Elmo Jaycees offers a wonderful way to strengthen your skills as a leader and as an individual by getting involved in your community and making new friends!
