Assistant Minister of
Chief Minister

It is my great pleasure to be given the opportunity to convey my warmest greeting to the members of Lahad Datu Junior Chamber. Various meaningful programs are planned within the week for the benefit of their members as well as the community.

A meaningful theme has been chosen for Jaycees Week this year which is Beyond the Limit. Youth aging from 18 to 40 from the local community is encouraged to participant in this non-trading organization for learning beyond
school or institution level. As far as I concerned, Junior Chamber International is a world wide leadership training organization. I would strongly
recommend the youth to join this wonderful organization for their self development.

Last but not least, I would like to wish the organizing chairman and his committee a successful Jaycees Week. And also, to the chapter president of Lahad Datu Junior Chamber, my great wishes for a fruitful and memorable
presidential term of office.

History of Lahad Datu Junior Chamber

In the early 1964, a team of members from Kota Kinabalu Jaycees headed by the National President JCI Sen. Khoo Thau Choon, visited Lahad Datu with the intention of forming a chapter in Lahad Datu. A group of enthusiastic young men extended a rousing welcome to the visiting dignitaries. An informal meeting was held at the Lahad Datu Sports Club which the visiting Jaycees gave briefing about the ideal of Jaycees International and the need for forming a Jaycees chapter in Lahad Datu. Apothem committee was§ formed to Study the various aspects of forming Jaycees chapter in Lahad Datu.

A Jaycee meeting was held to elect a Board of Directors on the 1 st June 1964 at SRJK Siew Ching. Mr. Tan Piak Hong was elected as the Charter President of Lahad Datu Junior Chamber.

The newly-elected president, JC Tan and his Board of Directors reaffirmed in front of the local dignitaries and representatives from the National organization that Service to humanity is the best work of life. It was on this historical date that the first voluntary organization of its kind and the fourth chapter of the Sabah Jaycees came into its existence in Lahad Datu with the strength of 18 members sponsored by Kota Kinabalu Jaycees was very fast without giving any problem either to the meetings and function organized by the locals

During 1983, the chapter organized a series of fund-raising projects, which accounted for more than half the fund required for the cost of their secretariat building, which was completed at a cost of about RM70,000 in the same year. The ground-breaking ceremony was officially performed by JCI World
President, JCI Sen. Kjell Peterson. The secretariat was declared open in December, 1983 by Tan Sri Sunoh Marso. The newly-elected Board of Directors and its members actively involve in the community as th catalyst to bring about better life to th many underprivileged, and to trail young people to accept the challenges of the future. Their program planned from higher level. They were adopted out of the necessity to solve social problems. Jaycees contribution to the local community won high praise and functions organized by the local government.
