With the New Year comes a new term for South Jersey Region BBYO. Our fall term flew by and here we are excited and ready for a fantastic spring. In our spring term, we look forward to eighth graders being eligible to join, new chapter leaders serving, and a fresh term to continue the groundwork set in the past few months. Spring is a busy time for SJR and all other regions in the order.
