We now have 4 locations, including Canyon Country, Castaic, and Newhall. Programs are safe and affordable year round.

Our Donuts in the Park was cute we hung out at the park and enjoyed great conversations and donuts. We had our 40 Under Forty gala at Blomgren Ranch. What an amazing time that was. It was so awesome to honor 40 people under 40. Hopefully we will get some new members out of it because all of those honorees were so amazing. Our final event was the Turkey Eve JCI Reunion at Drifters. It was amazing to see a ton of JCI members from the past and our current members all together. there were at least 40 to 50 of us. So cool to mix and mingle with everyone. Don’t miss out on all the fun events we have planned for December.

This is my last message to you as the president of JCI Santa Clarita. Let me tell you this year has been a blast. I hope you have all enjoyed being apart of all the cool things we have done this year. We have had about 70 to 80 JCI members all year, 178 new followers on Instagram, 192 new followers on Facebook, 40 new followers on Twitter, 1 awards and installation hoedown style, 12 Chat N Chill’s, 8 new podcasts on our JCI Podcast called Secret’s of Tomorrow’s Leader, 10 Donuts in the park, 1 Pumpkin in the Farm, 1 Holiday at the Farm (coming in December), two great training sessions, one civic engagement event called Meet the Candidates, 2 new member orientations, 10 volunteer opportunities helping other nonprofits, 12 different social gatherings called The Social Club, 1 new project called Get Real Adulting 101, one OG event called SCV 40 Under Forty, one other OG event Santa Helpers (happening in December) and we had a fiesta to launched our 501(c)(3) called JCI Santa Clarita Foundation.

I would like to thank my team who helped make all of this happen: Christian Dadulak, Brittany Barlog, Marcia Rosales, Cindy Curtis, Aimee Fishwick, Carlos Orozco, Lindsey James, Sharlene Johnson, Justin Charles, Grant Gurthie and Taj Jackson. A quote that I love is “Teamwork makes the dream work.” That is so true for this amazing team I have had this year. Thank you everyone for being apart of this awesome adventure.
