June Car Wash!
June 8, 2013: Rinse, scrub, rinse again, dry! At the Home Church on June 8th, Westmont Key Club hosted their first car wash of the summer! Key Clubbers washed cars for donations, and over $300 was raised in one afternoon! This money will go toward future events and projects for Key Club and the Campbell Kiwanis Club. Thank you to everyone who participated in this event!
June 22, 2013: Officer Training Conference, or OTC, took place on Saturday, June 22, at Manresa State Beach! Key Clubbers attended workshops and learned more about Key Club while having fun in the sun! Regarding her experience at OTC, member Cammy Luong says, â€œOTC was really fun. I got to meet new people and learn how to be a better leader, role model, and Key Clubber.â€? Overall, everyone had a great time at the beach attending workshops, building sandcastles, and meeting other Key Club members!
