Thank you to everyone who showed up for our 1st Brews at the Zoo event last month. We had a great time and certainly hope to do this again! A member of the Miller Park Zooligical Society attended our recent membership meeting and we were able to deliver a (novelty) check of our $1,224.80 donation from the event.
Attention Jaycees and Friends:
Our Annual Rural Pub Crawl is this Saturday! As always, we’ll be meeting up in B-N, then bar-hopping as a group on a rented bus to bars in small towns surrounding Bloomington. The cost is $10 for members, $20 for non-members. The cost includes a novelty t-shirt, which you can cherish forever, along with the memories. If you have not signed up, please contact your Community VP.

The B-N Jaycees announce Brews at the Zoo, an after hours culinary exploration. From 5 – 8 p.m. on August 5th, admission to Miller Park Zoo will not just include the usual access to animal exhibits. Each exhibit will also feature food and drink samples with a theme relevant to the exhibit’s culture.
Tickets are currently on sale. More details and to purchase online, visit our event page.
This month’s individual development event is Brewing with the Beev. B-N Jaycees members will learn how to brew their own beer! Come on, this is an invaluable skill to have. There is no cost and beer and food will be provided.
The event takes place at Chad Bever’s home (a.k.a. The Bever Dam) in Heyworth. The event starts at 8 a.m. and will go for most of the day. Attendees are welcome to come over at any time or point in the process, but the first 3 hours is when the important steps happen.
You can RSVP on our Meetup page.
Our general membership meeting is this Wednesday, 7 p.m. at the VFW in Bloomington. We’ll be starting with the business of the chapter, but we’ll be running through that quickly. After the meeting, we’re hitting the lanes right at VFW for some bowling.
Both members and non-members alike are welcome and encouraged to hang around and bowl!
Another month, another individual development event in the books. A group of B-N Jaycees walked away from Anderson Horse Farm with knowledge of owning a horse and riding experience. We learned basic maintenance and training, as well as heard some harrowing tales of emergency horse care.
Anderson Horse Farm gives lessons to kids and adults on their beautiful farm in Heyworth, for anyone who is interested.
