Mercer Wins 6 Awards At Jaycee Regional Fall Meeting Last weekend, Oct. 10, the Fox Valley Jaycee Region traveled to Sugar Grove to conduct the Fall Regional Meeting.

One member in particular, came home with several honors. You might have seen him hanging posters around the community in an effort to assist the Illinois State Police with a missing person. Perhaps you bought sweet corn from him at the Jaycee Sweet Corn Sale, or maybe you will recognize him at the upcoming Jaycee Haunted House. Mark Mercer, Executive Vice President of the Huntley Jaycees, was presented with several awards. Mark was awarded the "Outstanding Special Person's Award for the Fox Valley Region." A limited number of candidates are eligible for this award. Huntley Jaycee Mark Mercer was the recipient. "Outstanding Officer for the Months of August & September, Outstanding Program Director for the Second Quarter, Outstanding Officer for the Second Quarter and Outstanding Community Development Project Chairman," are the other honors Mark brought home for his endless efforts in the Huntley Jaycees.
