Past Presidents of the Lansing Jaycees Auxiliary
The Lansing Jaycees Auxiliary began in 1960 and initially served as a way for the wives of Lansing Jaycees to serve their community in conjunction with their husbands’ membership in the Lansing Jaycees. Beginning in 1973, the group opened to any women within the specified age range. 
 
The Lansing Jaycees Auxiliary had their own set of projects that they worked on, including building doll houses for the Lansing Child Guidance Clinic, a card party to benefit the School of the Blind, and writing letters to the Hanoi Government for the betterment of Prisoners of War during the Vietnam War. 
 
The Lansing Jaycees Auxiliary also assisted the Lansing Jaycees with projects, conventions, pageants, parties and socials, and was integral to the success of the Lansing Jaycees chapter.
