Welcome to the Chesapeake District Junior Civitan Newsletter
For the past couple of years, our Junior Civitan International Presidents have sent an email on the first of the month with the subject line, "Rabbit Rabbit" to the International Board, District Governors and District Chairs. The practice of saying Rabbit Rabbit on the first of the month is traced back to 15th century England. It was thought that saying this would give you a lucky month; another theory is that the rabbit is jumping into the future and moving ahead with life and happiness.
We've decided to put our own spin on this practice and instead of Rabbit Rabbit, we will have Chessie Chessie. Around the first of the month, look for this newsletter with upcoming dates, activities, projects and information to help you have a successful month of service and leadership!
Please share with all your club members
In case you did not know, Chessie is our District Mascot

Did you know you can borrow our District of The Year Trophy?
Use it as a fall recruiting tool, share on morning announcements, show your club members, who did not go to Convention what they missed, and just plain bragging rights. Send Ms. Carmen an email to let her know when you would like it to visit your school/club.
