The Hoffman Estates Jaycees are celebrating their fourteenth anniversary of the start of their Chapter at their regular monthly meeting which is open to the public on Wednesday, August 19th starting at 7:00 PM at the Hoffman Estates Village Hall at 1900 Hassel Road in Hoffman Estates.

“Our chapter is relatively young compared to the founding of the first organization 100 years ago in St. Louis.” said Keith Colgrove, 2015 Hoffman Estates Jaycee President.  “The Jaycees empower members to make an impact in local communities in Hoffman Estates and around the world.”

The not for profit civic organization is open to anyone 21-40 who is interested in community service, leadership training, new friendships and personal enrichment. The Hoffman Estates Jaycees is affiliated with the US Jaycees and Junior Chamber International.

“Joining the Jaycees is a great way to meet people while making an impact in the community,” said Chapter Vice President, Navylia Abele. “To celebrate its anniversary, The Hoffman Estates Jaycees is offering new members who join in August a 50% membership discount so we can expand our impact.” Individuals who are interested in learning more about the Jaycees or wish to join the Hoffman Estates Chapter can call them at 847-834-4352 or email hoffmanestatesjaycees@gmail.com.

The Chapter runs a wide variety of projects and fundraisers.   At the end of the fiscal year all of the profit generated from Chapter projects less Chapter expenses is funneled back into the community.  Included in these projects are the Make a Difference Day Food Drive, projects to benefit Nothing but Nets and scholarships and others, which benefit the community directly and help raise money.  Past trainings have included investments, parliamentary procedure, Resume Writing, How To Use Social Media, Public Speaking, and more.

 

Uno Anyone?

The Hoffman Estates Jaycees invite you to join us for free pizza and a fun game of Uno-the card game we played as kids.  Remember that game that has Wild, Skip, Revers, Draw Two and even the Wild Draw Four cards.  Did you know there are tournament rules?wild

We figured what better way to have fun, enjoy free pizza, meet new people and learn more about the greatest young person’s organization in the world.

Yes I said Free Pizza.

First Time Homebuyer Workshop

Buying your first home can be exciting, overwhelming, fun, and scary all at the same time. How much can you afford; where should you buy; what should you buy; what can you get; have you considered every factor; when should you get an inspection; should you get pre-qualified; should you ARGHH…. too much to do!!!

Fortunately, we’ve got two tried and true professionals, Brian T. Wolf and Gene Walters, here to share their time and knowledge to help you find that dream home of yours – or maybe just your first home eventually leading up to your dream home.

If you are thinking of jumping into the realm of home ownership, you should definitely attend this fantastic event.

When: Wednesday, April 29
Time:  7 pm to 9 pm
Where: Re/Max at Home, 3215 Algonquin Rd, Rolling Meadows, IL

Brian T. Wolf is a residential real estate expert with more than 10 years experience as an investor, owner, and broker. Brian honed his midwestern work ethic serving 6 years in the Illinois Air National Guard while completing his bachelor’s degree at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In addition to spending time with his wife and two children, Brian is active in the Arlington Heights Chamber of Commerce, serving as Membership Chair for his CHAMPPS group, and a member of the Arlington Heights Toastmasters Club. See Brian’s book on selling houses fast and for more money on Amazon.com by clicking here.

Gene Walters is a Senior Mortgage Banker with HomeTrust Mortgage Corporation. As your Mortgage Banker and Broker, he has the option of picking the best lender for your situation, choosing the best that the marketplace has to offer that fits your needs. He has built his business on repeat customers and referrals since 1997 and his only goal is that you are completely satisfied with the end result and how we got there.

They’ve put together a fantastic presentation in order to give you the information you need to get started down the path of home ownership. And while this is geared towards first time home buyers, if you’re looking to step up (or down) into another home or if you’ve bought and sold in the past and you’re looking to buy something again, then there’s still plenty of great information here for you.

So if you want to get into the home ownership realm, come on out, bring a friend or two and help us spread the word. We’ll see you there!
