Join the Lake Elmo Jaycees this December for our Annual Tradition of Giving those in need some joy for the Holidays!   

The Lake Elmo Jayces are proud to once again be participating in two great local gift programs: Tubman's Holiday Gift Program and Community Thread's Holiday Hope Program.

We will be meeting at the Starbuck's inside of the Oakdale Target at 9am to coordinate shopping efforts.  Then we will all grab carts and start shopping!  First we will shop for Tubman and when done the items will be dropped off at a designated location.  Next we will return to Target to shop for Community Thread. Each shopper will be given wish lists from the families we are shopping for!  We will be purchasing a signifigant amount of items and will need help transporting them if you are able.  For more details: post to the facebook events (links below) or contact President Sarah Carlson at (651) 226-2183.

Please join the Lake Elmo Jaycees for our Adopt-A-Highway project, with a NEW twist!

This year we are adding a fun twist, a Scavenger Hunt!  As participants help clean up the highway leading into Lake Elmo, they will look for "treasures" along the way.  Prizes will be awarded based on the treasures you find!

Saturday, October 18, 2014.

We will be meeting at 10am in the parking lot of the Target located in Oakdale on Highway 5.  Bags, vests, and water will be provided. Please bring your own gloves.  

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED:   We are responsible for a 2 mile stretch of highway 5 going though Lake Elmo, so the more help we have, the faster we can get it done!!! Please feel free to bring any children over the age of 12.

Drive In 2014 PDF Print E-mail








Please join the Lake Elmo Jaycees for our annual Drive-in movie night on Friday, August 22 at the Vali-Hi Theater in Lake Elmo!

We will begin the evening with a pre-movie cook out after the gates open and we claim our parking spots. The chapter will provide Hamburgers, Brats, Hot Dogs, buns, chips, and condiments for the BBQ. 

When: FRIDAY, August 22
Where: Vali-Hi Drive-in
1260 Hudson Blvd. N., Lake Elmo, MN 55042 (East 94 at Manning Ave.)
Time: Gates open at 7 p.m. Pre-movie cookout & social- First movie shows at dusk 
It’s highly recommended to arrive prior to gate opening so we can all park as a group in a good viewing location. The drive-in has been known to sell out, and it’s easier to park in a group if we arrive right away. Some of us will be in line as early as 6pm.

Movies for the evening will be posted after they are made public (usually early in the week each week).

Cost: $8.50 per person - $1.00 Children 6–12 - Kids under 6 are FREE (you will need cash to get in, they don’t take credit or debit cards but they do have an ATM on-site after you get in). Event will take place regardless of movies showing.
