What does the JOI Club do?​ Here are some of the pictures from the 2017 Twin City Days Craft Fair.  We raised over $700 for Herculaneum’s Kade’s Splash Pad!  We sold face painting, colored slime, balloons, colored hair spray, and miscellaneous items.  The Club did a terrific job and worked very hard all day long. And this is just one of the many events the JOI Club does.

Meet the 2017-2018 officers!  Pictured left to right Katie Huck, JOI Adviser; Vice President:  Sophie Hensley; Secretary:   Ayden Eldridge; Treasurer:  Jacob Bohler;  Jean Naeger, Twin City Area Optimist President ( not pictured JOI Club President Loren Macon)
