School might be ending, but Key Club goes on. In this issue: How do you plan to keep serving even when school is no longer in session? Now that it’s June, it’s time to say our final farewell to our Key Club Alumni. To those of you who are graduating, I hope that you have gained valuable experience and learned so much as a member of Key Club. I hope that you will all continue to serve your community and the world no matter where you’re headed.

Division 21 Pacific Northwest District

To those of you who will still be in Key Club, school might be over and summer might be in session, but service and Key Club still go on. We will still be having DCMs and I highly encourage all members to attend Seattle Rally (Page 12). Remember, this is a perfect time to begin planning your year, whether academically or for Key Club. Plan ahead and start the next year off strong.

What will DIVISION 21 do?

The Kiwanis Children’s Cancer Program, KCCP, 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. The KCCP was founded by Past PNW Kiwanis Governor Frank Morehouse in 2010. His inspiration was a young cancer patient named Penny. Morehouse worked at the hospital where Penny stayed. Penny was diagnosed with a brain tumor and required surgery and radiation therapy. Penny visited Morehouse during her hospital stays and talked about what was happening to her. Sadly, Penny eventually lost her battle with cancer. The KCCP is a long term project that will hopefully expand to a global program. Children’s cancer affects many families. Thousands of children are diagnosed with cancer each year, and with the help of research, their chances of surviving have more than tripled. KCCP hopes to be a part of finding a cure. “The Pacific Northwest is the beginning. The world is our goal.”

Come to the April DCM!

Year in Review

Glacier Peak High School This past year Glacier Peak's Key Club has helped out at many events such as auditions, spaghetti feeds, and food drives. Our most successful event was our food drive at Fred Meyers in Snohomish. We raised about $300 and collected 1,330lbs of food and toiletries, which were donate to our local Snohomish Food Bank. We feel very lucky to have the chance to give back to our community. Courtney Rigby Glacier Peak High School Key Club President

Lynnwood High School This year, the Lynnwood Key Club was able to able to experience a tremendous growth in membership after the District Convention. In the beginning of the year, it was a really rough start for the club because of the small membership. In the fall, we participated in the Special Olympics, many food drives and a few other projects here and there but there weren't many events and active members. However, as more members started to dedicate more of their time into the club, especially after some members went to DCON, those members were able to go back to school to share and inspire more people to join this amazing organization! After DCON, the new officers took over and many more events were scheduled. The increase of membership also followed! Since then, the club has participated in many events including, Kiwanis One Day, popcorn selling at Martha Lake Elementary, Brainworks at Hilltop Elementary, Healthy Kids Day at the YMCA, the Kiwanis Fundraiser & the Martha Lake Elementary School Carnival, which was a blast! The Martha Lake Elementary School Carnival was probably one of the highlights of the year because our club had a total of 122.5 hours from our 24 participants, for just that event! It was mind blowing! The new officers and members have found a new love for Key Club that they do plan on continuing into next year! This year was truly amazing in Key Club! Key Club changes your life, it’s only a question of whether or not you're willing to give it a try. Though we're a smaller club in our division, Lynnwood Key Club will definitely continue to dive into service & show people that a smaller club can do just as much as a bigger club can! Selina Nguyen Lynnwood High School Key Club President
