Currently, we are exchanging ideas for our Spring Social. Not sure what everyone has in mind, but I have heard rumors that going to The Blue Rocks Softball Game would be an excellent idea! If anyone has an idea for a social or a get-together for the Senators/spouses/friends, please feel free to share them with us. Contact by email Carole Harlan, Regina Cannelongo-Mahaney, or Randy Manship. Better yet, come to our meeting and we can talk about your idea!


Looking forward, MAI is scheduled for April 9th – 12th, and we have twelve members intent on traveling to the great state of West Virginia. If you would like to join us, there is still time to send in your reservation. The registration form can be retrieved at

Past Events


Everyone was busy in December, getting ready for the holiday season. On December 13th, our annual Holiday Social was hosted this year by Larry Green (Senator #27324) and his wife Joanne (Friendship #00056). We had a great turnout, and saw many Senators that we have not seen in many years! Lots of stories to tell, plenty of yummy food, and tons of holiday cheer… just what a holiday party should be. We hope to continue to see more and more senators come out to this holiday event.

Unfortunately, no one was available to represent the Delaware JCI Senate at the Winter Boards in Florida. But, we were still heard from! Among the many awards and presentations, Delaware was honored for achievements with the Presidential Sweepstakes by taking First Place in the Second Quarter.

In our efforts to “Return the Favor”, the DE JCI Senate once again supported the Delaware Jaycees by taking part in their State Convention in January. Joining us were our Region II National Vice President Bob Cairns and his wife Kim. Bob gave a wonderful talk to our Delaware Jaycees, pressing home the idea of including the Senate in their projects and activities. As in previous years, we supplied the judges for their Speak Up and Write Up competitions. In addition to Bob and Kim Cairns, the Delaware JCI Senate members participating were Regina Cannelongo-Mahaney (Senator #58562), Patrick Mahaney (Senator #51255), Larry Green (Senator #27324), and Carole Harlan (Senator #44468). Still active with the Jaycees, Jeff Lank (Senator #69262) and Tina Macko (Senator #67684) were on hand to lend their expertise in the hosting of the convention. During the awards portion of the day, Tina Macko (Senator #67684) was awarded her governorship.

Friendship Award

At the banquet during National Convention in Baltimore, the Delaware JCI Senate was proud to present our first Friendship Award to Joanne Green. Joanne has given support to her spouse Larry during his term as National VP from 1989 – 1990, and has attended numerous MAI Conferences spanning 1986 through 2013, as well as assisting Delaware and other states that have hosted conferences. She has attended numerous National Conventions (over a dozen) since 1979. Over the years, she has also lent support to the DE JCI Senate by participating in many Jaycee projects, including our largest Return the Favor project of working in the concession booth in support of the Delaware Jaycees at the Blue & Gold All-Star Game at the University of Delaware, from 1973 through 2014. Joanne is a Past President of the Wilmington Janecees 1978-1979; and chairwoman of multiple projects during that affiliation. During that time and since, Joanne has assisted the Wilmington Jaycees with numerous projects, including the Wilmington Christmas Parade, Zippety Zoo Days, and the Christmas Shopping Tour for Disadvantaged Children, Etc. She has, and continues to be, a great asset to the Wilmington Jaycees, the Delaware JCI Senate, and a genuine supporter of her husband. Please join us in celebrating this great lady, and welcome the newest Friendship Award recipient, Joann Green # 00056.

MAI Conference in Grand Island, NY

Here we are, back in the small wonder state, after venturing out to New York for the 2014 MAI Conference! The New York Senate hosted a fun-filled weekend and what a weekend we had! Eleven of us made the journey, and all had a great time. We made some group side trips on our own, some going over the border to Canada to see Niagara Falls and the wineries, and some staying in the states to see the falls from the American side and the casino. Others just doing their own thing… but the consensus was that everything was grand in Grand Island, NY! The highlight of the weekend came at the dinner on Saturday night, when our own Dick Howell was presented with the Dick Thomas Memorial Award for Outstanding Treasurer for Region II. We all know that he is a great treasurer, and has served us well for many, many years. But it is fantastic to have him honored for a job well done. Congratulations, Dick!

We Believe:

That faith in God gives meaning and purpose to human life;

That the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations;

That economic justice can best be won by free men through free enterprise;

That government should be of laws rather than of men;

That earth's great treasure lies in human personality;

And that service to humanity is the best work of life.

History of our Creed

Written by C. William Brownfield in 1946, the year 1996 was the golden
anniversary of the Jaycee Creed. Adopted by the US Jaycees and Jaycees
International, this simple statement of beliefs unites Jaycees around the
world in a bond of friendship and purpose. These 65 words have become the
third most important document in the lives of many, many people worldwide.
