2006 Junior Achievement Duck Derby
This year we are sponsors for a fund raising promotion that is going to be held in Rochester, Minnesota. At the annual July 4th Jaycees parade in Rochester, Minnesota, American Diamonds Forever, will be sponsoring a beautiful diamond designer pendant for raffle at the event. This fund raiser is being held by Junior Achievement, who is involved investing in the future of our children. Junior Achievement is joining Jaycees this year to create awareness of JA in the community, and also to gain more volunteers to get involved in the lives of our children. Junior Achievement uses hands-on experiences to help young people understand the economics of life. In partnership with business and educators, Junior Achievement brings the real world to students, opening their minds to their potential. JA was started back in 1919 to help young people experience real life economics and business. JA was built on the same motto we follow, and that is Respect, Integrity, and Excellence.
