DCON|Tina Nguyen|March 24, 2013 District Convention was a really fun event this year and I am really glad I was able to experience it first hand. District Convention for me started on Friday and the fun lasted all weekend. District Convention was a great opportunity for me to be able to meet new members of Key Club from all around the world. I was able to learn a lot from the workshops and it was great experience to see so many happy and smiling eager faces. I think one of my most memorable part of District Convention was listening to the guest speaker. I really liked him a lot and the things that he had to say was really relevant. He was a very good motivational speaker and I am glad that we had him. I also liked the food on the second day. I remember the mashed potatoes was cooked to perfection. I will definitely go next year. Some DCON Highlights: -motivational speaker Scott Greenberg -free meals -wonderful photo opportunities -people from all over the CNH district -a marriage proposal -installation ceremony -bonding with the people you room with -Starbucks Recognition: -Kevin Ho for Outstanding Club President -Tina Nguyen for Outstanding Club Secretary -Dom Nguyen for Outstanding Website and Distinguished Newsletter -Bolsa Grande High School Key Club for Diamond Distinguished Club A big thank you to Mr. Tonthat and Ms. Guntalilib for being chaperones!

Farewell, 2012-2013 board!

March was a month of transition. It was the end of the 2012-2013 term and the beginning of the 2013-2014 term. We ended a great year by getting recognized as a Diamond Distinguished club at DCON and welcomed the new year with a board consisting of both completely new and returning officers. March was a time of change, a time in when we were able to leave the past and start anew, carrying on the things that made us strong and throwing away what weighed us down. March was just the beginning. Through out the year, there will be many more events to attend, members to meet, spirit battles to win, memories to create and, of course, newsletters to read.

And in with the new!
