The Lake Elmo Jaycees are proud to once again be participating in the Tubman Holiday Gift Program! This is a long-standing tradition of our chapter, and many say it is one of the best projects of the year!
What is the Shopping Extravaganza all about? The Lake Elmo Jaycees make a sizeable donation to this organization every December. Rather than donating money, we go to a local store and purchase items to donate. Items are selected from a wish list provided by Tubman, items that are in high demand or particular need. We search out sales in order to stretch our donation as much as possible, and always make sure to get some toys, games, and fun stuff along the way too!

We will take a few minutes to organize our group and shopping plans, and then we will hit the shelves, buying LOTS & LOTS of good stuff! (We had over 20 carts FULL last year, not counting larger items like car seats and play pens that did not fit in carts!)
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
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
