The main objective of the New Fairfield Jaycees is to provide opportunities for leadership training, promote personal growth through community service and social activities.
2000 marks the 27th Anniversary of the New Fairfield Jaycee chapter. The chapter was formed in 1973 by a group of twenty men and has since evolved to include over 50 active men and women of diverse backgrounds from local business owners to members of major corporations. This diversity provides a variety of talents and skills to the organization while maintaining a commitment to the Jaycee value of community and individual development.
While the New Fairfield Jaycee chapter is an active member of the state and The U.S. Junior Chamber of Commerce organizations, we are known for our local community emphasis. We sponsor numerous community activities and work closely with two sports-minded local organizations; N.F.J.C. AquaBears and the N.F.J.C Basketball League. Some of the activities that we are perhaps best known for include Tree Lighting, Holiday House Decorating Contest, Santa Calls and the Children's Halloween Parade.
We take great pride in the town of New Fairfield and demonstrate this community interest not only through community-minded projects but also through participation in local events, such as entering floats in the local parades and participating actively in events sponsored by other local organizations.
Not only have the New Fairfield Jaycees been an extremely sucessful community organization, but we enjoy numerous social activities including picnics, sports activities, and parties. We work at serving our community while having a great deal of fun.
