Social group puts fun in fundraising
THE Jaycettes group was originally formed in 1969 by the wives of the then-Mundubbera Jaycees men’s group.
The women decided if the men could have a social group, so could the ladies.
Mundubbera Jaycettes president Debra Kimber said it was a group of about 20 local ladies who aimed to enjoy each other’s company while raising much-needed funds to benefit locals and people abroad.
“Apart from our own fundraising activities, we are often kept busy helping other local organisations and charities with their volunteers,” Ms Kimber said.
“We work with World Vision to sponsor a child, which is very rewarding for all our members.”
Charities and individuals in need of assistance often call on the Jaycettes to help.
Mundubbera Jaycettes has also produced a calendar for 2015 and there are not many left for sale.
The calendar was the brainchild of past president Julie Mauger, who in 2013 started planning for the production.
Local herb grower and Jaycettes member Lorraine Maskell took the photos and gave her time to the cause.
All proceeds from the sale of the calendar will go directly to CareFight, a rescue service that is always looking for assistance – as we are so dependent on their assistance.
The publication is for sale throughout Mundubbera.
Monthly meetings are held at the homes of members and the main focus is food and friendship.
Ask your local members how you can join and where the calendar can be bought or phone Christine at Burns Drapery on 4165 4472.
CALENDARS: Christine Vicary and Debra Kimber.
