Jarvis Township Senior Center
Seeking Pokeno Sponsors

The Jarvis Township Senior Center is looking for monthly sponsors for our 3rd Wednesday of the month POKENO day.  We recently lost our generous sponsor that had hosted POKENO for over 2 years.  This popular game has gone from 15 players/month to over 35 players.

This is a great opportunity for you and your business to reach outinto the community and promote your business.  At the monthly game, we have been providing a light lunch followed by the sponsored game with cash prizes of $1.00 each.  We are looking for sponsors willing to provide $50/month for the cash prizes.  If you would like to sponsor a month, we would love to have you attend and provide promotional materials.

STEM Voyagers

STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. STEM is important because it reaches into every part of our lives. STEM activities provide hands-on and minds-on lessons for the student. Making math and science both fun and interesting helps the student to do much more than just learn.

We started out to open a chapter of the STEM Scouts program coordinated by Boy Scouts of America. After a year of effort, however, the St. Louis division of BSA has decided to abandon the STEM Scouts program. We are not willing to abandon our mission, though. This area needs a program of this nature. The clubs that currently exist are saturated. We want to create more opportunities for kids to learn to appreciate and love technology as we do.

This is where you come in. Funds raised will be used to subsidize the cost of enrollment, educational supplies, and to fund field trips that will make the program an even better experience. If you would like to be a part of this program and give back to the community in a meaningful way, please contact me at your convenience to make a donation or to learn more about the program.
