Great job on preparing for Spooky Street and cleaning up! I hope you all had a great time and enjoyed helping out. It‟s exciting to see all the children smiling! Spooky Street came and went by so quickly! Thanksgiving is soon coming up and I hope you‟re ready to put on a chef hat, „cause we‟ll be baking some pies! In the past, we always bake some pies for families. Not everyone is fortunate to have a grand feast; that is why we‟ll put our baking skills and our love into making pies so that others can enjoy it. I am not sure about the details, but be sure to be on the look out for any new information!
Fantastic job on decorating for Spooky Street! Hard work pays off!
Enjoy the autumn breeze and embrace the blissful spirit. Be thankful for what you have and give more to the people around you. Meanwhile, CARE, „cause, key clubbers, that’s our way of life.
THE-OH-SOWONDERFUL NEWSLETTER November 2011 Issue 4
ISN’T HE ADORABLE IN HIS TIGER COSTUME!?!
What an amazing year we had! I’ve never seen so many kids so happy to eat doughnuts and go bowling! It was a blast! Nice Job guys (and nice costumes)!
As you may know, we are partnered with United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). Money Raised goes towards the Children who are less fortunate in Countries around the world. Instead of Trick-or-Treating for candy, ask your neighbors to donate any spare change to UNICEF and remember to thank them for their appreciation and kindness. Have fun, Dress up, and be safe! Remember, nothing’s Impossible! You just got to BELIEVE! *DON’T STOP BELIEVING.*
“The Pacific Northwest is the beginning. The world is our goal.”
“KCCP, Kiwanis Children’s Cancer Program, in support of Kiwanis Doernbecher Children’s Cancer Program in Portland OR., Kiwanis Children’s Cancer Program in Seattle WA. and the Kiwanis Children’s Cancer Program in British Columbia and the Yukon,
will raise money and awareness to fight and find the cure for children’s cancer.”
In memory of Penny, a young girl who passed away because of brain cancer, PNW Kiwanis District Governor Frank Morehouse founded KCCP in 2010. This program is dedicated to help “change the future and outcome of Children suffering from cancer.” The PNW is going to stay involved in this program until the cure
for cancer is found.
There are several ways we, key clubbers, can contribute: Raise money Go to the hospital and take a tour Spend some time with a cancer patient Any act of kindness is a big difference. If you have any more ideas, feel free to speak up. No one’s stopping you!
WHY SHOULD WE CARE?
Because no child deserves to have cancer. It’s painful for the child and their family. Not just physically, but mentally. It’s devastating. Imagine just happening to have a disease the next day. You, too, would be in pain and scared because anything can happen. You could die the next day without knowing. No child deserves to be left wondering what’s going to happen the next day, but they do deserve a chance of life. But that can only happen if we do something today. We’ve already begun. But if you haven’t, then join the fun because the sooner you start the more
we can get done.
WHEN: March 31st April 1st WHERE: Double Tree Hotel (Seattle, Wa) COST:$220 per person in a room of 4
WHAT AND WHY: I HIGHLY encourage everyone to go to District Convention (DCON). You learn a lot more about Key Club at a district level. You meet key clubbers from around the Pacific Northwest and develop a keen sense that key club is more than just a club. If I had a million dollars, I’d force all of you to go. It’s just that good. But, sadly, I don’t. So, let me just say, it’s an experience you shouldn’t miss out on. You have fun and learn how to be the best Key clubber!!! And the best thing is you get to bring it back to club and brag about it and hopefully get more people to go next time. Well, maybe not the best thing. But still, You WILL have a great time. And I guarantee it. SO GUYS AND GALS. GO TO DCON. THAT’S RIGHT. YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE!! Okay, then go to PNWKEYCLUB.ORG and click on DCON. or ask officers.
