a word from the
NEWS EDITOR Happy April, CNH! We’ve finally reached the end of the term. It’s so crazy to think that it’s already been 12 months since DCON 2017 and since we began our journey together. It has really and truly been the honor of a lifetime to serve you all as your District News Editor. I can only hope that I’ve made you proud. Thank you so much for everything that you do. I know you hear it a lot, but each officer, member, and advisor appreciates the time and effort that you devote to this organization. We wouldn’t be able to complete our goals and success without your work. As a district, we’ve been able to complete incredible fundraising numbers, service hours, and member count. Although we didn’t reach all of our goals, that doesn’t mean we weren’t successful. All of our work was not in vain; we were able to raise funds that save lives, bring new people into our Ohana, and serve our communities. That, to me, is more than perfect. The end of the term means District Convention is just around the corner! 2 weeks from now, I hope to see each and every single one of you at DCON cheering your heart out and showing your love for service and Key Club. DCON is a uniquely wonderful experience, and no single DCON is like any other. If you missed the registration deadline this year, don’t worry! Just remember to work proactively next year to ensure your spot. With a new term just around the corner, remember to finish the term off strong! Keep attending service events and banquets while also looking forward and training the new officers. It is your responsibility to ensure the success of the next term and to establish a strong legacy. Thanks for reading the last edition of the District Newsletter. I can’t believe it’s the last one of this term. Thanks for everything. Zoe Yao District News Editor firstname.lastname@example.org
Here we are. The last issue of the 2017-18 term. Time really does fly when you’re having fun...let us take this moment to reflect on all the accomplishments of this term.

District Treasurer Twelve months went by in the blink of an eye; in a few weeks it’ll be time for us to say our farewells. Our goodbyes to each other and this term will be bittersweet, but I sincerely wish that you all have warm memories to cherish from this term. At the beginning of this term, the District Executives established three district goals to work towards. I am ecstatic to say that the Cali-Nev- Ha District not only achieved one of these goals, but also surpassed it and set a new record. Thank you all for your hard work in raising over $220,000 for the Pediatric Trauma Program this term - a total well over our goal of $190,000! Though the two other goals, 1.3 million service hours and 43,000 dues paid members, were not achieved, we reached extremely close numbers and for that I am beyond thankful!
District Secretary The time is finally here. Within a few days, we will all be reuniting with old friends, celebrating our accomplishments, and crying with joy as the new term begins. I cannot wait to see you all at DCON 2018!

Convention and feeling immensely prideful simply because I was from CNH - the largest and most spirited district in Key Club International. It’s been a long journey for some of you, and I thank you all for your commitment, time, and dedication towards this organization and service. Thank you for proving that you do not need to sacrifice quantity for quality, as the CNH District has proven itself to be both large and full of hard working members dedicated to service.
I hope you all have had an amazing March so far. Make sure you are encouraging your clubs to take full advantage of the amazing Key Club initiatives this time of year. Apply for a HALO Movement grant by May 1 where your club can receive anywhere from $100 to $2,500. Participate in the Elemonate Challenge, where you can post a video of yourself eating a lemon, challenge three people to do the same, post to social media using the hashtag #ElemonateChallenge, and give a suggested $20 donation to the Eliminate Project.
Inevitably, our time in Key Club will come to an end. If you’re a senior, I strongly encourage you to look into Circle K or Kiwanis as service is something that sticks with you for life. For the underclassmen, cherish the time you have left. Don’t count the days till the end, make the days count.
I can’t wait to see you all at the California-Nevada- Hawaii District Convention from April 13-15 in Reno, Nevada! District Convention, or DCON for short, is an amazing way to bond with your people, meet other passionate Key Clubbers from across the CNH District, elect your 2018-19 CNH District Executive Board, dance the night away at the Governor’s Ball, attend workshops and general sessions, take part in House of Delegates and caucusing, and much more! If you have any questions about DCON, please reach out to your Lt. Governor or any other CNH District Board member. I can’t
I wish you all the best, and I As this is the last message cannot wait to see what you all you’ll ever read from me from will accomplish in life. The Buzz, I would like to take this final message to thank you all. Vivian Chu CNH, it truly is an honor serving District Treasurer you. I distinctly remember email@example.com walking around International
Luke Gilmore wait to meet all of you there! I also hope to see many of you for the 2018 Key Club International Convention. This year, International Convention, or ICON, will be held in Chicago, Illinois, from July 4-8. ICON is comparable to District Convention, except on a grand scale. At ICON, you can meet members from across the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean. Additionally, you will get to see the sights in Chicago with your district, elect your 2018-19 Key Club International Board, participate in caucuses and general sessions, vote as a delegate in the House of Delegates, attend dances, and much more.Please let me know if you have any questions about attending this year’s International Convention in Chicago! Have an amazing rest of the month, and I can’t wait to meet most of you at the 2018 CNH DCON in just a few weeks. Keep making me proud, and keep up the great work serving your homes, schools, and communities. Luke Gilmore International Trustee firstname.lastname@example.org

Aktion club receives special recognition from U.S. Congress! During the inaugural Akition Club Week, U.S. Representative Jim Costa presented Aktion Club with a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition.
“This is a nice recognition. This is well deserved.”
- Howard Jackson Aktion Club district admin of the CNH District
Being part of Aktion Club for 12 years, Greg Beasley and Howard Jackson have been leaders and influencial members. Howard Jackson helped charter the Charis Community Aktion Club.
“I like making new friends and helping the community.” - Greg Beasley Recently, the Kiwanis Club of East Fresno, which sponsors the Charis Community Aktion Club as well as other clubs in the division, adopted a childrens’ garden and are working to clean it up and install a “fairy garden” for kids to enjoy. Beasley’s club does several projects every year: they clean parks, make blankets for kids in the hospital, hold holiday parties, create hygiene kits for families that flee natural disasters, and even cleaned an alley to help beautify the city. Kiwanis International created Aktion Club Week to recognize the people of all abilities who help their communities. “Aktion Clubs are no different than Kiwanis clubs,” said Stan Soderstrom, executive director of Kiwanis International. “Members learn character-building, leadership, inclusiveness and caring all while giving back to their community.”
“I love it.” - Greg Beasley

Kiwanis Family and Friends Month RECAP
Thank you for participating in Kiwanis Friends and Family month back in February!
Kiwanis Bilingual Clubs Who are they?
SGV Biligual Club | D35
Have you ever heard of a Kiwanis "bilingual" club? Well if you haven't, don't worry! These new clubs are a way for the Kiwanis Family to further connect to different groups of people who primarily speak another language plus English! By Kiwanis helping to recruit members within a certain group, we are able to share community service by breaking barriers created by language. These new clubs in turn help educate the community around their area by translating the love of service into their own words for others to understand. On October 31, 2017, Cal-Nev-Ha Kiwanis Division 35 opened the very first dual-language Kiwanis Club that speaks and operates in both English and Chinese Mandarin called the San Gabriel Valley Bilingual club. Starting off with just 17 members, it quickly grew to 24 members and is continuing to grow with members who are excited about service. The Asian American community was once without an opportunity to showcase its passion for service due to language constraints and they have now found a home with Kiwanis. Now with this new Kiwanis club, we hope to be more inclusive and allow everyone to help kids. Division 35 and all of Kiwanis are looking forward to the clubs success!

#MyKeyClubStory Luke Gilmore Meet
International Trustee from the Kansas District
Why did you join Key Club?
One of my biggest Key Club influences has to be Mr. Chuck Sack, my District Administrator and my home club's Kiwanis sponsor. Mr. Sack convinced me to attend the first Key Club meeting during my freshman year. While he lead me to joining Key Club, the first impression Key Club made on me enticed me to stay in this organization. I was blown away by the amazing service provided by so many high school individuals, just like me. In addition, I joined Key Club because I wanted to work closer with some of Key Club's sponsored charities that I learned about in my youth, such as UNICEF and March of Dimes.
What was your Key Club moment?
Before I attended my first District and International Convention in 2015, I wasn't fully made aware of what Key Club was. When I attended my first Key Club International Convention in June of 2015, which was also in collaboration with the Kiwanis 100th birthday celebration, I was amazed at how many Kiwanis family branches came together for a monumental celebration of service. Through the knowledge I gained during that week, as well as the amazing people I met and stories I heard, I was inspired to fulfill a high level of service to my home, school, and community in this amazing organization.
What does Key Club mean to you? Key Club is more than a club. It is a way of life. We as Key Clubbers are changed for the better by the amazing service we do, from waking up early on Saturday mornings for pancake breakfasts and divisional meetings, to impacting the life of a family or individual who needed a spark of joy during the holiday season. Key Club has changed my life because I have learned how to serve my community to the best of my ability. Even when I leave the organization in July, I will carry on the invaluable skills I have learned through Key Club for the rest of my life.
What is your weirdest Key Club moment?
My weirdest, or most embarrassing Key Club moment, had to be at the Kansas District Convention last year. Since I was district secretary, I called the opening session to order so I could introduce the 2016-17 Kansas District Governor. When I called the meeting to order, however, I missed the bell, so I had to do it again. It was super awkward.
If you could live in any fictional world, where would you live? Hogwarts, of course! I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan--I've read all the books (several times) and seen all eight movies (several times, as well). I would love to learn how to do witchcraft and play Quidditch throughout my school career, so I feel Hogwarts would be a good fit for me. Additionally, I get told that I am Ron Weasley's long-lost twin all the time because my middle name is Weslee (which sounds similar to Weasley), and also because I am a ginger.
Does Lightning McQueen buy car insurance or life insurance? I feel that Lightning McQueen purchases life insurance. Since Lightning McQueen and the other cars are treated as humans in the Cars film franchise, they are not an owner of a car nor do they have a real owner. Thus, Lightning McQueen would have life insurance because he has to take care of himself, and he doesn't own a car nor does anyone own him.

District Awards Awards!
First of all, congratulations! Being chosen for this recognition is truly an honor, and you should be excited! I, as well as everyone on the district board, am extremely proud of you and grateful for your service. It is because of people like you that our district is so successful. It is important to remember that although Key Club is not about the recognition but about the service, recognition does play a role in our district, something that myself and the committee I serve make sure of. Again, congratulations and remember to keep on striving to do your best!

What is a division council meeting? A Division Council Meeting (DCM) is a meeting conducted by the respective Lieutenant Governor for the members of his or her respective division. DCMs are full of information about upcoming events, education about Key Club, and much more. There is always something for everyone at a DCM! At DCMs, you will learn more about various projects and events, get involved with the division and its people, and gain a better understanding of how great this organization truly is. You are encouraged to attend in order to learn more about whatâ€™s been happening in Key Club, and why it matters to you. Some DCMs are even combined with a service project, fundraiser, or social event so you can be there for more than one reason!

DISTRICT BOARD [goodbyes]
CNH, you have shown me what it is to be a leader. You inspire me every day. Keep on changing the world <3 Katie Knapp, D44S LTG This term was a wild rollercoaster of emotions I will remember for a lifetime. I have grown into such a strong leader, established unbreakable friendships, and made unforgettable memories. I would not trade it for the world! #ProudToBeACNHBee Kyle Shaffer, D37E LTG So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past. Vinh Nguyen, D04W LTG Division 16 East and Region 7, thank you for making this the best year of my life. #ltgconfessions L-O-V-E I love my D-I-V! Brian Pham, D16E LTG “We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” -Walt Disney Jacquelyn Leung, D23 LTG
Thank you to every single member, club officer, DLT member, advisor, and of course the Possibilibees for your hard work and service this past year. You all have inspired me everyday to grow and work hard and I know that every single one of you are destined for great things!!! Keep on servin’, buzzin’ bees and never lose your passion to make this world a better place!!! Much love, CNH Ohana! Lily Marshall, D14/39 LTG All these years in Key Club, and I still don’t know how to make keys. Charlotte Wood, MR Chair
d12w will forever be the cardi b to my offset (*>_<*) Isabelle Trinh, D12W LTG “Nothing will work unless you do.” -Maya Angelou // Thank you to everyone who has assisted me in this incredible journey. Our hard work & efforts have led both Division 44 North & the CNH District to new heights! Ryan Hardmeyer, D44N LTG
Follow @cnh_keyclub for spicy posts! Roland del Mundo, District Tech Editor
35 If I can sum up this term in a few words, it would be “some of the best moments of my life”. Every moment has allowed me to grow and improve as a leader. I’m so glad to have had the opportunity to serve you all. Thank you bees for dedicating your time to service. I hope you all continue to lead your communities and be the amazing servant leaders that you are!! #CNHIsMyOhana Nancy Pham, D31 LTG BEE kind! Guy Suankaew, D35W LTG I am forever grateful to this organization that has fostered me to grow in resilience, poise, and intellect. Key Club has challenged me to uncover my potential, crack it open, and scoop out every little bit I can. Thank you, Key Club, for giving me a space to explore and reach new horizons. As we part ways, Key Club, the spark of wanderlust you have ignited in my heart will travel on. May you and I both prosper in all of our future endeavors and find a happily ever after. Erica Cheung, D22H LTG Aloha CNH! Thank you for an amazing term and never forget that the possibilities are endless! I’m buzzing to see you all at DCON ;) Keith Cachola, D22K LTG
As this is the time to say goodbye to the 2017-2018 term, remember that you do not have to say goodbye to your leadership and service journey. If you’re a senior in Key Club, there’s always Circle K or other college clubs where you can get involved and if you still are in high school, that gives you more time to develop yourself! It’s sad that you and your friends could be parting ways, but appreciate these last few moments you have with them and hold them close. Don’t forget that April does not end everything for you, it’s merely the start of a book that you have left to write. Thank you to all the members, officers, advisors, Kiwanis, and of course, the possibiliBEES for your service; please continue to keep on shining! Victoria Chau, D30N LTG According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way that a PossibiliBEE should be able to work as diligently as they do. Their sleep schedule (or lack thereof) and daily lives are too hectic to be as productive as they are. The PossibiliBEEs, of course, work hard anyway because the PossibiliBEEs don’t care what others think is impossible. Roselyn Romero, D42W LTG
36 What’s Buzzin CNH! Division 27 South Lieutenant Governor here and I just wanted to let you all know that I am extremely proud of what you all were able to accomplish! Please remember to take time to reflect on the positives, all the amazing things you’ve done, and positive impact you’ve made in your home, schools, and communities! To the members of Division 27 South, Thank you for all that you’ve done this term! As a division, we were able to raise over $4,200 for service and perform over 2000 hours of service, which is PHENOMENAL. You all are the reason why I fell in love with this organization and continue to serve to the best of my ability. L-O-V-E I LOVE MY D-I-V To the Region 16 Lieutenant Governors, You guys are honestly the biggest support system I’ve had this whole term. You all are amazing individuals who deserve nothing but the best and I am glad I was given the opportunity to serve alongside all of you this term. From the lowest points of my term to the strongest points, you all were there to support and cheer me on. I love you guys so much, you’re all amazing individuals and I can’t wait to see where life brings you. Thank you for everything you’ve given me CNH. I owe you the world. Alex Hin, D27S LTG Hey CNH Bees! It’s ya boy Mehul Chowdarapu, and here I am giving my last remarks on this final District Newsletter for the 2017-2018 term. Although I am just a lieutenant governor of just one division, I cannot be more proud of each and every single one you. Every one of you have hearts of gold, and embody what it truly means to be a CNH Key Clubber. Serving our homes, schools, communities, showing off that amazing spirit, reflecting the qualities of servant leadership, and being an inspiration to those around you is what makes YOU a special and unique BEE. This term may be coming to a close, but our journeys as leaders is far from over. Keep doing you, and continue to open your doors of opportunity. A good time indeed... Mehul Chowdarapu, D42E LTG
37 I am going to keep this short, thank you all for impacting my life in ways that I never imagined. Whether it be member, officer, DLT, or DB, each of you have created a lasting impact on me that I will cherish in my heart forever. I couldn’t have done this without M.Y. family, Possibilibees (Serenibees) forever! Tyler Ma, D15E LTG
Hello, Bees! Can you believe this term is coming to an end? This year has been an amazingly wild ride full of service, fundraising, and more. I am so glad that I was able to experience it along with the most wonderful group of people. Serving along with my fellow PossibiliBEEs has allowed me to learn and grow so much as a leader and for that, I am beyond thankful. I would also like to give a big shout out to Division 20 and Division 32. Every single member and advisor in Region 15 has made a MAJOR impact on my term. I have had a pleasure serving throughout this term and will forever hold the memories of this year in my heart. Thank you all! Annaleigh Nguyen, D20/32 LTG Mamma Orca out but splashing for service forever! Emily Sim, D37W LTG
Shining a spotlight on CNH one final time. Alex Gatus, SP Chair
CNH Key Club, thank you for 4 years of service and incredible memories. Keep on buzzing! Olivia Fu, D07N LTG We’re changing the world and considering every Possibilibee along the way! Love you all, thanks for the memories. <3 Tegan Dalle Nogare, D45 LTG Grow despite concrete. Serve despite limits. Trinity Tran Nguyen, CM Chair & GDC DUE(S) you know how much I love you, CNH? Well, I love you from here to the moon and BEEyond! I’m extremely grateful for all the memories I’ve made from my four years in this organization. I know, without a doubt, that you all will go on to accomplish great feats in life. Remember me when you’re famous! Thank you for being the light of my life, CNH! Buzzin’ with Service, Vivian Chu P.S Pay your dues! Vivian Chu, District Treasurer Hey Bee, it’s Hazel C. It has been an honor to serve an amazing term with endless PossibiliBEEs. Thank you for being a significant part of my life. Hazel Cartagena, D19N LTG
38 What’s Buzzing, Bees? It’s been an eventful term but nonetheless, one of my greatest adventures. I’ve been given the opportunity to serve others, to meet life-long friends, and to make a difference in my community. Thank you for giving me an ohana for the past four years of my life. I don’t know where I’d be or what I’d do without you all. There is simply no combination of words that could fully encapsulate all of my love for the organization we share. “How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.” It’s time for me to begin a new adventure, but I will always hold my time in Key Club close to my heart. Thank you for everything, CNH! Kaylyn Hoy, D36W LTG Although you were my best hello, you’re also my hardest goodbye. The past four years have been nothing but extraordinary and it’s given me the opportunity to grow in infinite ways. I beelieve we will all continue to meet the endless possibilibees in our future works. Thank you, and see you later. Kimberly Hoang, D27N LTG My non-Key Club friends probably think I’m weird because they ask me why I’m so obsessed with bees and honestly, I don’t know how to answer their question. Buzzing with service, Lindy Chen Lindy Chen, Key Leader Coordinator
Hello CNH BEES, It’s been a privilege to serve the California-Nevada-Hawaii District, The Policy, International Business, and Elections Committee, and Division 16 South. I am so thankful for everyone who has encourage me, inspired me, helped me, and cared for me during my term as Lieutenant governor, so I dedicate this term to them to my White Tigers, to Region 7, and to the District Board for every moment, every tear, every simile, and every moment of laughter. Being LTG, was breathtaking. I fell in love with Key Club more than ever before. I fell in love with my region. I fell in love with my Division leadership team. I fell in love with my division more than I ever thought possible. Now as its coming to the end, I feel like I am losing a part of me, and I don’t know who I will be without it, but I know I will keep all these wonderful memories from my 4 years with me through whatever comes next. Thank you for giving me this opportunity. Rebeca Gasper, D16S LTG No matter if things turned out exactly as you wanted or not, BEE proud of all your accomplishments CNH! I believe I can speak for everyone when I say that it has been an honor watching you all grow as leaders, and we all feel like proud parents because of it! Thank you Division 43, Region 17, and all of the Possibilibees for an amazing term! <3 Leanne Bagood, D43 LTG
39 “According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies anyway because bees don’t care what humans think is impossible.” Throughout the course of this term, we’ve flown and flown, and surpassed the imaginations of any adult! Despite all tribulations and challenges, we’ve done it! After a term full of insane hard work, little wonders, and cheesy moments, we’ve definitely embodied our name, and with that, we’ve truly proven that the PossibiliBEEs are endless! Sophia Nguyen, D28N LTG A goodbye is always hard. I’m honored to have been able to witness the growth of Key Club throughout my years in this organization. How do I say it? I’m so proud to be a CNH bee, and I want specifically to emphasize the following quote for you readers. “You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” -Winnie the Pooh Thank you, to everyone, for never failing to inspire my wary heart, and I hope you never fail to be inspired yourself. Kelly Tran, District Visual Media Editor
Even though I arrived midterm, the past 10 months have been nothing but life changing. Thank you for everyone who made this journey so memorable. The things I have accomplish and the people I have met is something I will always look back on. My high school career couldn’t end any better then this. To everyone I met, I hope sometime in the near future we come together again, as I have grown close with so many people that I never thought I would get to know, that I don’t want it to be end for us. For my term as LTG, I’m not good at goodbyes, but all good things must come to end sooner or later. Thank you for defining the person I am today. I am sure going to miss this. Becuase of this term, I now know where my future lies. Thank you. Noah Lopez, D28S LTG When people say Key Club is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, they truly mean it. The last 4 years that I have spent in Key Club have been the greatest 4 years of my life filled with lifelong friendships, touching moments, and many skills learned through this wonderful organization. Never take any second for granted and when the time comes, retire with no regrets. Keep moving forward! March Suayngam, D35E LTG
