Former Jackson Parish Jaycees hold reunion meeting

There was a time when the Jaycees were one of the top civic clubs in Jackson Parish. Then one day it all ended. Like the Lions Club, Kiwanis Club, Rotary Club and others that were prosperous and thriving civic groups for decades the Jaycees disappeared from the Jackson Parish scene. 

That is until Tuesday, when some of the “survivors” decided to have a reunion. There were eight in all who made the short trip to Dodson to eat at the Teen Challenge Cafe and more importantly rehash old memories and never to be forgotten good times. 

Shown in the banner above (l-r): Don Shields, James Ginn, Greg Hennigan, Wes Horton, David Tassin, Bill Brown and Paul Trosclair. Not shown in picture but at the meeting was Ronnie Madere.

  1. Had a great time . It was fun renewing friendships and hearing those old “ war” stories. The Jackson Parish had a tremendous impact on Jackson Parish and on me . I have always been so proud of these men that just didn’t know how to quit. We were #1 in the Nation for the first 5 months and mainly because of the Jackson Parish Jaycees. Thanks for everything y’all did.
