(low*) ADVANCE-^ THURSDAY, JAN, 13, 1964 Many projects undertaken by local JayCees The third week of January is annually set aside to honor local Jaycee Chapters. The Algona Jr. Chamber of Commerce easily ranks as one of the hardest working in the organization. In conjunction with - Jaycee Week, some of the projects of benefit to the community are as follows: This past Christmas over 72 needy children from Algona were given a party. They received candy, games and toys donated by various business firms and private individuals. Broken toys were mended by the Jaycecs and put into working order. Dr. M. R. Baldwin was chairman of this project. Many hours of planning 'and work gave many children a happier Christmas. The Jaycecs also sponsor the annual "Christmas Tree Pickup." At a designated time, they load all Christmas trees left on the parking into trucks. They are then hauled to the city dump, where the Girl Scouts take over for the "burning ot the greens." Last spring inaugurated the sand box project. For a very small fee anyone interested could have a sand box completely installed in their yard. Tom Kissner, chairman of this event, said about 60 of these, were installed. With the full co-operation of the police department, a "Car Safety Check" was initiated. Road-blocks were set up in front of City Hall and Jaycees were posted to stop every car and check lights, brakes and windshield wipers. If a defect was found, a courtesy ticket was issued. Jim Buscher, chair- manned this project. Just before Memorial Day a wrecked car from George's Body Shop was placed at the Four Corners intersection as a reminder to the public to drive carefully. Chairman was Walt Turchin. In addition to the above activities, two new reading tables were donated to the Public Library, a Jr. Golf Tournament, under the chairmanship of Bob Bomgaars, was held at the . Country club and the annual Jaycee Baby Beef Sale, chair- manned by Chuck McCa.be was a feature of the Kossuth County P'air. The local Jaycees also sponsor Explorer Post No. 55 with Earl Parsons as advisor. The biggest undertaking by far has been the Park Beautification Program. Under the auspices of the Jaycees, this 3-year program has resulted in new and re-conditioned picnic tables and the installation of fireplaces at the swimming pool park. Bob Watson was chairman of this project last year. In addition, they have attempted to beautify the park by mowing, digging out weeds and picking up litter. The Jaycees were the moving force behind Miss Iowa's appearance at the Band Festival. They also built the float which she rode on during the parade. The current president, Frank King, expects even "bigger and better things in the future." He expressed his thanks to the community for support. Anyone wishing to join the Algona Jaycees may contact him or any member. Livermore Mrs. Mayme Scott Diane Marie Smith celebrated her sixth birthday Sunday.
