A message from our new President, Deb Scott

Honor the Past,
Celebrate the Present & Shape the Future

I retired from a 35-year career at Sprint 11 years ago.  I decided to just kick back and relax – that lasted about two weeks and I knew I needed something meaningful to do in this 2nd chapter of my life.  But of course, as I’ve said many times, I would only go back to work if my family were starving!!!  So--many of the ladies in my neighborhood had formed a mid-morning water aerobics class at our community pool three days a week.  I decided it would be a good opportunity to get some exercise and get to know these ladies better.  Over that first summer, I discovered that several of them were members of a women’s philanthropic club—Johnson County Young Matrons.  They asked if I would like to come to a meeting.  I said sure, and I knew after only attending a couple of times that I had found what I was looking for in JCYM—a way to give something back for all of the many blessings in my life.  I joined and have been an active member since 2015.

 

Our club year is June 1 through May 31. 
Look what we've done this year!!

We raised funds to provide financial assistance to six charities.

We provided hands on help to those six charities.

We provided scholarships to several students.

We enjoyed time together socially.

It was a very good year!!!!

From KidsTLC:

"Since 1972 JCYM has been a part of our beginning, growth and long term success.  Their generous members had a vision and put words into action.  To this day, members share their time and resources with KidsTLC's kids, families and programs in so many ways.  JCYM can be found enjoying our fundraising events, playing games with kids in our residential program, providing grants to encourage professional growth and collecting ongoing donations to support program needs."
