Barneveld Jaycees 
     When you think about young men just getting out of school, you 
picture them working at a job with marriage in the back of their minds. 
Once they tangle with these responsibilities these young men also become
concerned about matters other than themselves. 
     In March of 1975' the young men of Barneveld contacted the Jaycee 
chapter of Mt. Horeb and organized their own Jaycees. The young men 
felt that they wanted to help out their own community with a club much 
like the Advancement Association but only for men between 18-35 years of
     There are presently 22 members in the club. Dave Roberts holds the 
presidents position for 1977. Arnie Knight and Dave Myer are the 
internal and external vice presidents. Between the two of them they 
manage to relieve each other when the load gets heavy. Dave Schlimigan 
is the Secretary-Treasurer and Greg Clerkin as State Director, handles 
all the mail that informs them of the contributions other Jaycee chapters
have made in their communities. 
     The coming of each March calls for a meeting on the first Thursday 
of the month where each member pays his dues of $14.50. Nominations of 
officers for the new year are also taken. The meetings follow there after
on the first Thursday of every month. 
     In the 3 years of the Clubs' existence they have helped other 
organizations in their social events by running the games for the School
and Annual Fair. Usually helping in any place help is needed. 
     They have many future plans for Barneveld. They hope to help cozy 
Barneveldians into a clean and comfortable environment by providing more
benches and garbage containers. They hope to sponsor a dance once a 
month to support their activities. 
     Much Thanks goes to Dean and Greg Oimoen for the encouragment they 
gave in the organizing of the Barneveld Jaycees.
