La Porte JaySHEEs Past Presidents

The La Porte Jayshees organized in September of 1956 after the Jaycees voted to have a local auxiliary.  The purpose of the Jayshees was to promote social contact among the Jaycee wives and to provide organized assistance for any La Porte Jaycee function when called upon.  In 1979 the La Porte Jayshees became members of the Indiana and United States Jaycee Women.  With that affiliation, the women became involved in many of their own projects as well as assisting their local Jaycees.  The Jayshees expanded in 1981 when they joined their membership to include non-Jaycee wives and single women.  Due to the Supreme Court ruling in 1984 allowing women to join the Jaycees, the Jaycee Women organizations started to erode.  Many of the Jaycee Women groups dissolved and joined the Jaycees.  In March of 1985, the Indiana Jaycee Women voted to dissolve and merge with the Indiana Jaycees.  A similar vote was taken in June of 1985 concerning the United States Jaycees Women.  The La Porte Jayshees were a vital part of this community with such projects as the Babysitting Clinic, Cutest Baby Contest, Thanksgiving Baskets, and Easter Coloring Contest.  Many of the Jayshees continued their community involvement by becoming active members of the La Porte Jaycees.
