The 70th anniversary of the Sturgeon Bay Jaycees will be celebrated with a reunion of past members later this month. Phil Schmitz, a former member and state president in 1987, along with his wife Ann, will host the celebration at the Door Country Event Venue located at Schmitz Insurance south of Sturgeon Bay. Schmitz says the social will encourage people to bring Jaycee memorabilia, photos, and stories to reminisce the history of the organization. He says the Jaycees have always been a vital part of the community with many past projects over the years including June Jubilee and bringing Country singer Jerry Reed to the Door County Fair.
The Jaycees is a national civic organization that is open to people between the age of 18 and 40. Schmitz says over 50 past members have already RSVP’d for the Sturgeon Bay Jaycee 70th anniversary reunion that will be held next Friday from 5 until 9 pm.
