Did you know that the number 13 is the sixth prime number, and the smallest emirp (a prime that is a different prime when reversed). It is also a Fibonacci number, a happy number, the third centered square number, and one of only 3 known Wilson primes. And of course who hasn’t seen a Friday the 13th movie? For some, it has also been superstitiously feared as an unlucky number. For me (and Italy – weird, I know) the Number 13 has traditionally been a lucky number though! And remember, the first flag of the United States bore thirteen stripes representing the original Thirteen Colonies of the United States. But I digress!
This year, the number 13 has significant meaning for the Hoffman Estates Jaycees come August 20, 2014.
Because it’s our 13th Anniversary!
That’s right, back in August of 2001, we had our first chapter meeting where we elected Charter board members and started what has now been 13 years of community service, leadership development, and most importantly, lifelong friendships.
We’re making strides in the chapter this year and we want you to come out and celebrate our anniversary of making an Impact! Come out and join us as we continue to change people’s lives and make the world a better place – one project at a time.
In fact, we’re on a goal to get at least 13 new members to join this year and to kick-off the membership drive, we’re going to offer$13 off your first year’s membership if you come and join at the meeting.
And that’s not all!!!
What kind of celebration would it be if we didn’t give away gifts and prizes?!?!
EVERYONE who comes to the meeting will receive a raffle ticket for a door prize. And … if you bring a prospective member to the meeting, you’ll receive another raffle ticket for a door prize.
Prizes will include a lollipop, gum, and stickers. Just kidding! Prizes will include Jaycee T-Shirts, Books, Gift Cards, A Bluetooth Headset, and possibly more (lollipops, gum, and stickers… or other stuff)! Who cares what you get?!?! Heck, bring a gift to give if you’d like. Just come and celebrate with us and more importantly, join us for another 13 PLUS years of making an Impact… one Jaycee at a time.
We will order pizza and have snacks and drinks. A $5 donation is suggested. So join us on August 20, 2014 at the Hoffman Estates Village Hall starting at 7:00 PM.
Here’s to lucky number 13… and seeing you at the next meeting.
