New activities are added throughout the year, but below is a list of our main events:
Stick It To Cancer
Started in 2009, we team up with the University of Wisconsin Superior men's and women's hockey teams for an annual fundraiser for cancer. The UWS hockey teams wear customized uniforms for one scheduled game in February. Following the game, the jerseys are auctioned off. All profits go towards treating and defeating cancer.
Gitchee Gumee Brewfest
Started in 1998, this brewfest has grown into the largest brewfest in the Northland. Held in April at Wessman Arena, this annual event has sold out in the past 5 years. Participants can sample over 130 different brews from over 33 different brewers. All profits go back into the community. Click here to see the Gitchee Gumee Brewfest Website
Community Service Projects:
Jaycees Sandbox Fill
With the help of local businesses and the City of Superior, every June the Jaycees fill children's sandboxes with fresh clean sand for them to enjoy at no cost.
The Jaycees sponsor a two-mile stretch of Highway 2 between Wentworth and Poplar. Twice a year we go out and pick up the trash on the sides of the busy highway, followed by pizza and refreshments at Rapids Riverside.
Business After Five
We co-sponsor a Chamber BAF event each year in December. A night of socializing and networking while collecting toys to kick off the local Toys for Tots toydrive in Superior.
Every August, the Jaycees put together a team to participate in the Lake Superior Dragonboat Festival held by the local Rotary. We have a great time at the event either under our canopy or paddling in the festival. In 2011 and 2012, we earned the gold medal in the Bronze Division at the festival.
We have appetizers at one house, dinner at another, desserts & drinks at another... you get the idea, a lot of fun with fellow Jaycees.
Golf Skills Clinics
Throughout the summer, we offer golf skills clinics at various times to our members. Nemadji Golf Course offers the course and instructors to teach driving, pitching and putting.
Salvation Army Bell Ringing
We ring the bells twice a year, once in July and once in December to raise money for the local Salvation Army.
Punt, Pass and Kick
Every September, we team up with the Superior Youth Football Program and host a local competition for the NFL sponsored football skills competition for the local youth to participate in. The winners of the local competition are invited to the regional competition.
Every year, the Jaycees present three awards to members of the community at the Chamber's annual dinner. We present awards for the Boss of the Year, Outstanding Young Superiorite and Humanitarian of the Year.
