The Blast

The B-N Jaycees have been ramping up the social activities lately.  Though the whole chapter deserves the break from business meetups, there is the secondary motive of growing membership.  The importance of membership to a member-ran organization cannot be understated.  New members stepping up in recent projects is a reminder of how impactful membership is to the chapter’s growth.

Friends of friends easily become friends.  There is always an open invitation for non-members to join our meetups to learn more about us, and members are always welcome to bring along friends they think would dig our chapter.
Bruegala Bands
The band lineup for Bruegala was officially announced this month.  While the focus of Bruegala remains the beer and wine tastings, the music is always an excellent pairing that the Bruegala crowd sticks around for.

August Event Spotlight #2
Bruegala Hey.  Bruegala is August 26th and 27th.  Beer, wine, bands and good times.  The chapter talks about it a lot, but owning one of the community’s biggest events is a feat to be proud of.  The B-N Jaycees are excited to see how big the Bruegala crowd grows this year, and how well everyone enjoys it.  A big thanks in advance to all the volunteers!
Preview the Brew  The B-N Jaycees held a beer tasting at Fat Jacks in Bloomington to allow the local crowd to preview some of the excellent beers that will be available at Bruegala. 

The turnout was great, many delicious beers were sampled and booths were setup by the Jaycees and other Bruegala partners with fun games, valuable information and some sweet merchandise.
Brewing with the Beev  Members met up in Heyworth on a Saturday this month to learn how to brew beer.  The most-of-the-day meetup offered demonstrations for the step by step process.  Sources say the individual development event was catered with homemade grilled cuisine.

Each month, the chapter gathers to learn interesting, cool and valuable skills.  Stay updated with the group’s Meetup, Facebook or website to see what they’re learning next.
