In 2013, the Swainsboro Jaycees celebrated its 75th anniversary. Since 1939 this Jaycee chapter has endured and stood strong because of its members. Those members have come from all walks of life: farmers, teachers, law enforcement personnel, plumbers, electricians, assembly line workers, doctors, lawyers, store managers, etc. Former members of this organization have also gone on to serve as Mayors, State Representatives, State Senators, City Councilmen, County Commissioners, Judges, etc.
Since 1939, current and former members of this great organization have come together as one, primarily because of their desire to serve this community and make it a better place to live. This organization has stood the test of time because the members of the Swainsboro Jaycees continue to believe in the Jaycee Creed which states in part that,“service to humanity is the best work of life”.
