October Amanda’s Notes One month of school down. It’s crazy how fast the month of September has gone by! This month has been busy for me and I’m sure for all of you to. I am really excited to be able to say that I have visited three of Division 68’s clubs already! I want to thank all those clubs for hosting me and making me feel welcome. And Canby, I get to see you guys next week! In visiting these clubs, I loved having the opportunity to talk to everyone about Key Club on the District and International level. I hope you guys enjoyed learning about all the different opportunities! A lot of stuff is going on the October and it is important to keep in mind a few pieces of information. District Convention’s Call to Convention has been released. Your advisors have all been given the information packets and registration is due on February 5, 2013. The new membership update center has been launched so I encourage club secretaries and advisors to start work on entering your entire club’s data. Contact me with any questions because I’m totally willing to help! A few people from Division 68 attended Mt. Hood Kiwanis’ Key Leader last weekend, and I loved hearing about their experiences. Set your sights on attending next year because it will be even better! This month Key Club has a great opportunity to support one of our service partners by trick-ortreating for UNICEF. I have ordered 100 boxes along with assorted advertisement materials. Contact me if you have interest in supporting this cause!
Ever feel like life is just running you down? District Governor Giovanni has given the District Board a ‘song of the week’. An inspirational song to get people through anything that might be a little tough.
