MESSAGE

CHRISTIANA CLAUS

HI EVERYONE!

HAPPY FALL I can barely believe that I am already approximately half way through my year of service as your Lieutenant Governor. It has been a heck of a ride meeting many of you, and I can't wait to meet even more of you in the coming months. With Fall Rally coming up, I encourage you to seriously consider attending. It is an amazing experience to meet key clubbers from all over Long Island and to learn how to be a better member of your community. If I do not see you at Fall Rally, I hope I will at LTC 2020!!

See you soon, Christiana

SPOTLIGHT

SHENENDEHOWA HIGH SCHOOL, DIVISION 16

SHENENDOWA'S KEY CLUB BATTLES CANCER Shenendehowa's high school's key club volunteered with a local organization called Nick’s Fight at their Run to be Healed 5K! This non-profit organization works to emotionally and financially support children battling cancer, and often supports the pediatric center at Albany Med. Key clubbers got to do various activities like putting on carnival games for the kids, handing out water to runners, and face painting! This was super fun for the key clubbers and it is always really rewarding for them

PROJECT

NY SPECIAL OLYMPICS

NEW YORK SPECIAL OLYMPICS

Special Olympics New York is an all inclusive athletic opportunity. Athletes with intellectual disabilities have the opportunity to challenge themselves in fair and even competition. Win or lose, they develop their own character, make friends and find unknown wells of determination within themselves. Special Olympics pushes the message of inclusion, which is something that everyone can get behind. Please support this cause throughout the service year!

PROJECT

PROJECT SEMICOLON

PROJECT SEMICOLON

Within the belief that suicide is generally preventable, the mission of Project Semicolon is to help reduce the incidents of suicide in the world through connected community and greater access to information and resources. Suicide prevention is the collective responsibility of each and every person on the planet. Please support this cause throughout the service year!

OPPORTUNITIES

FUND

CLOSES OCTOBER 15TH

Do you have a service idea, but need some financial aid to make it work? The Youth Opportunities Fund enables Key Clubs to do more for their community through providing financial aid.

Who can apply: - A club in need of assistance for a service project - An individual in need of assistance to attend the International Convention - A club that has just experienced a natural disaster

Applications close at 11:59pm on October 15th. Submitting the Letter of Agreement and the Release Form should be done as soon as possible, preferably alongside the YOF submission. Do not wait until the last minute to apply!

Applicants may request between $100 to $2,000. Key Club International will not grant more than what is requested. However, do not request for more money than you need, as it will not be granted.

Please answer the application in detail, so that Key Club International will understand what your service project is for. Remember to also upload a spreadsheet of how the funds will be used.

Keep in mind, the YOF should not be your only source of funding for your service project. Additionally, do not use the grant money for anything not mentioned in your application. Go to nydkc.org to learn more.
