One) of last year He held no office at that time, but served actively with the Chamber's commitee which put through the free dental clinic for school children, which operates at Salem School, and as a member of the membership committee. He was elected president in June of this year, taking-off ice July 1 to serve until the same time next year. One of Sherm's fondest hopes for this year is to see a big increase in the Jaycec's membership. The organization is still comparatively small and the number of projects which they would like to enact for community betterment will be- made much easier with more workers to share the burden. In addition, he feels that with a larger membership, the group will be able to broaden their activities considerably. At present the Jaycees are planning to obtain as much new equipment as possible for their dental clinic and to promote their Better Books program. The latter program is designed to provide more and better books for the youths and adults of the borough. Sherm is also a member of the Glendale Manor Community Club, one of the more progressive organizations of its type in Naugatuck. He served as vice-president of the group last year, in addition to being advertising manager of the club paper, "The Glendale Manner". During .the first year of the club's existance, in 1947-48, he served on the board of trustees. . An ardent bowler, Sherm i,s also fond of salt water fishing and has an average interest in base- bal!, .basketball and football. His quieter side harbors a liking for bridge. , A community-minded man, president of the community-service- dedicatcd Junior Chamber of Commerce, you should know, Sherman H. Erown.
