A Weekend Welcome

Dear Associates:

On behalf of Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated and the National Associates Committee, we thank you for wanting to attend and registering for the November Puerto Rico Associates getaway in record numbers. Although the hurricane canceled the trip, we heard you and have rescheduled the 3rd Biennial Associates Getaway Weekend. We invite you to attend the picturesque and tranquil oasis of the all-inclusive Paradisus Resort Cancún nestled on an unforgettable beachfront February 22 – 25, 2018.

Our objective is to create a tranquil setting that allows friendship and bonding amongst tenured associates to be renewed, re-energized and grow. Associates hold the institutional knowledge and wisdom of our organization and we want to thank you and pay homage to you on this get-a-way extended weekend.

In addition, the Associates will hold to the traditions established from the previous get-a-ways and see the best of everyone and all that they have contributed to their communities and chapters.

You are royalty and we want you to be treated like a queen. We hope that you can join us!

Sincerely,

Danielle Brown
