Historical Note

The South Carolina Jaycee-ettes were organized in 1955 as an all-female auxiliary to the all-male South Carolina Jaycees (Junior Chamber of Commerce) and had as their primary purpose to be of assistance to the Jaycees; to be of benefit to the community; and to have fellowship with all Jaycee wives. In the mid-1980s the Jaycees begin to allow women to be members thus the Jaycee-ettes were no longer a necessary organization.
