Past Events


The 60th Annual Blue & Gold Game was held on June 20th at the University of Delaware Stadium in Newark, DE. Once again, the concession booth assigned to the Delaware JCI Senate was well-manned by a host of Senators. Some Senators even offered their services in other areas of the event, including serving on the DFRC Committee and helping out the Delaware Jaycees chapters at other booths. We sold a lot of hot dogs, burgers, pretzels and sodas on a very hot summer afternoon, and were fortunate to be finished before a huge thunderstorm came our way All in all, it was a great time, and we look forward to next year as usual.Attending the Blue & Gold Game were: Carole Harlan and granddaughter Claudia Morse, Regina and Patrick Mahaney, Dick Howell, Randy and Sharlene Manship, Larry and Joanne Green, Steve Bufflap, Keith Pierce, Steve Stallone and son Mark, Dave Mackenzie, Tina Macko, Jeff Lank, Paul Betts, and Lee Derr, along with guests Ann Weiford, Judy Parag, Tom and Gina Nicolaus and their son Alexander (Regina’s cousin).

Our long-awaited Spring Social was held June 5th, as we attended a baseball game at Frawley Stadium in Wilmington, and rooted for the Blue Rocks on their way to another victory. The weather was perfect for our night out, and was capped off with a magnificent fireworks display! Definitely something that we will be doing again! Attending the game were Carole Harlan, Regina and Patrick Mahaney, Dick Howell and Mary Ann Wozny, Randy and Sharlene Manship, and Judy Parag.

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, Dick Howell or Randy Manship. Better yet, come to our meeting and we can talk about your idea!

At National Convention, it was announced that the Delaware JCI Senate achieved Third Place nationally for Presidential Sweepstakes ticket sales, and that Jackie Grimm took First Place nationally for individual ticket sales. Way to go!


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.

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.
