KEY CLUB Carolinas District Newsletter, Division 23b
We want YOU to shake, rattle, and roll! In 1981, the Boys and Girls Homes of North Carolina at Lake Waccamaw became the Carolinas District Project. The Boys and Girls Homes is a residential group care home for abused, neglected and dependent children between the ages of nine and eighteen.
How have we been making a difference?
The Carolinas District has helped the Girls and Boys Homes by donating clothes, toys, food, school supplies, hygiene products, time, and money. Our District helped provide funds for the Leamon E. Rogers Memorial Chapel built in 2001. We have also started Keys to the Vans, which helps to provide vehicles for the Girls and Boys Homes, and Christmas for Children, which raises money to give the children a memorable Christmas.
Now do your part!
You can help support the Boys and Girls Home by participating in Shake-Rattle-and-Roll. Fill up a bottle with change during the next two months and bring it to District Convention. The bottles will be collected on Friday night after the opening session. Please invite your club to collect change and bring a bottle to District Convention! At District Convention, we will also be selling Together-We-Can Ribbons for $1. Please bring some cash to District Convention so you can purchase one!

Words for the wise... “It is never too late to be what you might have been.” George Eliot “Never worry about numbers. Help one person at a time, and always start with the person nearest you.” Mother Theresa “And this is how change happens. One gesture. One person. One moment at a time.” Libba Brey “Remember if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm… As you grow older you will discover that you have two hands. One for helping yourself, the other for helping others.” Audrey Hepburn
“Great thoughts speak only to the thoughtful mind, but great actions speak to all mankind.” Theodore Roosevelt “What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but, scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.” Joseph Addison “Limitations live only in our minds. But if we use our imaginations, our possibilities become limitless.” Jamie Paolinetti
Congratulations on all your club progress, growth and accomplishments during the 20112012 school year! Keep up the fantastic work and service throughout 2013! Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions or concerns.
