The Chatham Jaycees along with many other organizations take helping and supporting our community very seriously, which includes the safety of others.  

We have determined that it is best to wait for an additional year before holding our 47th annual Sweet Corn Festival next July.

 The Chatham Jaycees recognize that venues are reopening around the state and locally. However, the timing of these statewide announcements didn’t provide the Jaycees and the numerous outside volunteer organizations which we coordinate and rely upon ample time to successfully execute the Sweet Corn Festival this year.
