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.

SERVICE

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!

LEADERSHIP

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... “Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing” Camille Pissarro “Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.” Earl Nightingale “I hope you live a life you’re proud of.” F. Scott Fitzgerald “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
