Message from the Historian... Hello everyone! As we transition into sweater weather, it's time to start thinking about those less fortunate! We had the UNICEF boxes this month, for neonatal tetanus! Look forward to collecting food for the needy with the Second Harvest Food Bank drive in November! Chandra Couzens Westmont Key Club 2013-2014 Historian
Car Wash! October 12, 2013: Westmont Key Club held their second car wash of the year! It was a huge success, raising around $150 for Pediatric Trauma Prevention! Members soaped, rinsed, and dried cars, and even shouted and advertised to attract customers. Thank you to everyone who came and helped out at the car wash!
Rock & Roll Marathon! October 6, 2013: Members participated in the annual San Jose Rock & Roll marathon! Despite waking up at 5AM to get there and set up a booth to pass out water to runners, everyone had a great time. Thank you to everyone who came and helped out!
Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF! October 2013: Westmont Key Club passed out UNICEF boxes to classrooms around Westmont, and members encouraged fellow students to donate to support the Eliminate Project. Some Key Club members even took UNICEF boxes and on Halloween, went Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF.
