The 2013-2014 theme “Keeping Promises” and accompanying logo are derived from Robert Frost’s poem “Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening.” The poem tells the story of a traveler in his horse-drawn sleigh stopping for a rest on his journey to watch the snow fall in a secluded woods. After some contemplation he continues on because he has “promises to keep and miles to go before he sleeps.” The promises I would like the US JCI Senate to help keep are the promise that young men and women can have a life-changing experience if they become active in the Jaycees and the promise that Senators can find a whole new world of friendships and fellowship by becoming active in their State Senate organization.
