Our own JayCee was featured on KATC TV3's "Spirit of Acadiana" this morning, as Scott Brazda congratulated him on his recent "Volunteer of the Year" award.

Scott interviews JayCee about being a volunteer, and asks about his inspiration.

JayCee and his family are gearing up for the 'jeep jaunt' JAM!!, the registration kick-off party for the 8th Annual 'jeep jaunt'. The 'jeep jaunt' JAM!! will be held on Saturday, August 10th at Sterling Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep/Ram on I-49 in Opelousas, with the gates opening at 8am. Entry is free! There will be food, drinks, door prizes (for those who register for the 'jeep jaunt'), and music by Jamie Bergeron and the Kickin' Cajuns!

The Annual 'jeep jaunt' and 'jeep jaunt' JAM!! are fundraisers for the American Lung Association, and are sponsored by Sterling Automotive, Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel, Celebrity Theatres, Hulco Printers and 99.9 KTDY.

For more information about the 'jeep jaunt', contact JayCee at 337 849 8928.

I am very proud of my friend John "JayCee" Falcon, and of his accomplishments. Please help him continue to do great work for the community by participating in, donating to or becoming a sponsor of the Annual 'jeep jaunt'.
