Happy August, CNH Bees! We are just over a quarter of the way through the term, and it’s flown by so quickly. The new school year is coming, which means that new members and service opportunities will be popping up! Take advantage of this time to reach out to new members, raise funds, and help make this term the best it can be. A new school year also means new experiences outside of Key Club. As rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors, we already have a variety of tools to help us navigate high school and the world. Be sure to share these tips with younger students so that they can have a smooth transition as well. This early fall season is a prime time for member recruitment, so BEE sure to stay on the lookout for new ways to attract members. Hold an ice cream social, movie night, or craft service event. Set up a booth at a club fair to get the word out! Classes will be more difficult and you will be taking on new responsibilities, but always remember to put your mental and physical health first. Your well-being should be the priority above anything else. If you need assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out to your respective Lt. Governor or even myself! We are all here to help. At International Convention 2017, Key Clubbers from all across the world elected our International Board for the 2017-2018 term. Congratulations to our new International President, William Sims, and our International Vice President, Minyoung Kim. CNH’s International Trustee is Luke Gilmore! Please give him a warm welcome. You can find his very first International Update on page 5. Fall Rally and Region Training Conference are coming up soon! These events are exciting and the perfect time to meet new people from outside of your division. Pay attention to dates and deadlines for these events as they are approaching quickly. Ask your Lt. Governor if you have any questions. Division News Editors, remember that articles and visuals are due on the 15th of each month by 6pm, and newsletters are due on the 20th of each month by 6pm. It has been a great past few months serving you all, and I can’t wait to see what else the term will bring.

Division 4 West Marina Key Club

Volunteering at Summer-fest was one of the many fun events during this year so far. Although it was very hot outside, the temperature did not stop us from serving tasty hot dogs to the people of Summerfest. Kiwanis did an amazing job of showing Marina Key Club how to prepare the hot dogs. Before we arrived to the booth, everything was basically already set up and all we had to do was learn how to set up the register and the hot dogs. We were very efficient and I believe that we used our time wisely and productively. During our service, we sold many hot dogs but a highlight of the day was when we encountered the assistant principal of Marina, Robert Rasmussen. We were able to persuade him into buying one of the delicious hot dogs from our booth, so that was a fun moment from the event. Time went by very quickly because of how fun this event was for us, with the only downside being how hot it was. Overall, volunteering at Summer-fest was a blast and I believe that everyone wishes to help Kiwanis again next year.



Buzz Buzz, CNH Key Clubbers! As summer draws to a close, brand new opportunities to serve your homes, schools, and communities open up. Although we all dread the start of the new school year, to be honest, school will motivate us and get us on our feet once again. For some of us, summer ‘17 has been an incredible one filled with adventures, travels, and fun. For others, this summer has been the much-needed break we all needed. But for all of us, this summer will act as a motivator to allow each of us to work hard throughout the school year, whether it be because you never stopped serving your communities and want to continue doing so or because you were unproductive and want to work harder to make up for it. I ask that you reach out to everyone you know. Recruitment season into Key Club will come

Hello, Cali-Nev-Ha! Can you believe that summer is almost over? Now is the perfect time to think about what you have accomplished so far this summer, and what there is left to do. School will be starting soon, and it is important for you utilize this time efficiently to get the most out of it. There will be various events that you will soon be hosting, and with school in full gear, it may be hard to balance all your activities. So be sure to use these last couple days to finalize all your plans, go to more service events, and of course, work on summer homework. Don’t stress yourself out by doing things last minute — work proactively now and throughout the term to ensure that you have time for yourself. Thank you all for your continual hard works of service. I am truly honored to be working with such an amazing group of people. This is your year – you will

quicker than you think. It is never too early to start publicizing the many wonderful aspects of Key Club International. Utilize social media platforms and post flyers on the web. Create a recruitment video that will go viral all across the U.S. You can even walk up to your classmate and convince them to join this life-changing organization. Your words and actions are influential to your peers. You can be the reason that our district reaches its goal of 43,000 members. I believe in all of you more than you can imagine. I wish you the best of luck this school year. Stay strong, do not procrastinate, and keep on servin’!

Always in service, Angelica Garcia District Governor

get out how much you put into it. Keep striving towards your goals and don’t lose the passion and motivation that you have now. Please keep in mind that we, the executives, are always here to help you with any problems you may face in your term. Thank you for everything you all have done, and will continue to do for the CNH District. Lastly, for Club Secretaries, make sure that you are consistently turning in your Monthly Report Form on time and accurately. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!

JiMin Margarett Lee District Secretary



What’s Buzzin, CNH! For most of us, summer is about to wrap up, meaning that the school year is about to be underway. Whether your summer was full of service hours, new friends, or simply relaxing, I hope you all enjoyed it! The end of summer is a great time to get ready to recruit plenty of new members to Key Club! At the beginning of the school year, see if you can set up a booth at school showcasing Key Club at your club fair - if your school offers one, of course. This will really help to draw attention to our wonderful organization! Now is a great time to work with your club board to plan out the rest of the term. Set goals for yourself and the club you serve so you have something to work towards throughout the year. The remaining weeks before the end of summer will pass by faster than you think! Utilize every moment you have! Last month, I attended International Convention where I was able to experience Key Club at


Greetings, CNH Key Clubbers! My name is Luke Gilmore, and I am honored to serve as the 2017-18 International Trustee for the CaliforniaNevada- Hawaii District. Besides serving Cali-Nev- Ha, I will also be serving the Southwest District and Eastern Canada District this coming year. Besides serving as an International Trustee, I served as a club vice-president and an immediate past Distinguished District Secretary for the Kansas District of Key Club International. This past week, the International Board had their board training at the Kiwanis Headquarters in Indianapolis, Indiana! It was a great time and an awesome learning experience for the upcoming year. While we were there, the board members were assigned international committees to serve on for the upcoming year. The committees are as follows: the Executive Committee (chaired by William Sims), the Youth Opportunities Fund/Awards Committee (chaired by Minyoung Kim), the Committee on Service (chaired by myself), the Committee on

the international level. The 2017-2018 Key Club International Board was also elected. I know that this will be an exciting term with our International President William Sims, Vice President Minyoung Kim, and our very own trustee Luke Gilmore! I wish you all luck in the beginning steps to empower Key Club at your school with new members, increased service hours, and more reasons to smile throughout the year. I cannot wait to make so many memories with all of the members of CNH throughout this school and Key Club year. As always, thank you for your service and for reading. See you next month, CNH!

Vivian Chu District Treasurer

Membership Experience (chaired by Lindsey Banks), and the Committee on International Development (chaired by Jack Nannie). If you would like to know more information on these committees, please feel to contact me at any time. These updates will keep you in the loop on all things international, so be on the lookout in the coming months! I also had the pleasure of meeting Governor Angelica while in Indianapolis and got to meet with her about how I can best serve the Cali-Nev-Ha District this term. If you have any questions for me at any time, please feel free to reach out to me via text, call, email, or one of my social media platforms. I can’t wait to meet the members of CNH Key Club at the 2018 CNH District Convention on April 13-15 and at the 2018 Key Club International Convention on July 4-8 in Chicago, Illinois!

Here’s some information to help you as a photographer. Refer to last month’s Newsletter for the first “Effective Photography” Flier!

INTERACTING W/ AN AUDIENCE BEElieve it or not, being a photographer takes a lot of leadership skills! Some of what you’ll end up doing includes: - Meeting new people - Directing singles or small to large groups for poses - Delegating assistants to help with lighting, changing the background, etc. CLUB or DIVISION At Meetings (& DCM’s) - Take candids of speakers & of the audience; Capture portraits of recognized persons At Events - Candids of volunteers Both - Ask members to pose! (Maybe it’ll be their next Key Club memory) - Take group photos with multiple poses Overall, remember to pay attention to your environment and use your leadership skills to interact with the subject.

You’ll probably experience interacting with the following audiences: - Club - Division


- 1-2 People - 10 People - 80+ People

Look below to some diagrams and guidguid ance points! 1-2 People - Portrait photography; Utilize/Respect your landscape! - Think of it as a bowl of ramen, your subject is the noodles, but your landscape is the meat, veggies, and garnish.

~10 People - Stagger people - 2-3 rows is usually enough

80+ People - Have multiple rows, About 15-20 people each - Shorter people to the front - Stairs are your friend

POST-EDITING THE PHOTO Putting your photography through post-editing is, at least in my opinion, the most (x5) important part of processing a photo. Below are some popular photo editing applications and softwares: - Adobe Lightroom; $$$ - GIMP; Free - VSCO (Smart Phones); Free Try your best to edit on a laptop, using apps like Lightroom or GIMP, for better quality and variety. Apps like VSCO are great for on the go!

Let’s Meet Aktion Club! Aktion Club is the only international community organization for adults with disabilities. Core Values Character Building: The ability to the right thing, even when it might be the unpopular choice Leadership: The ability to listen, communicate, serve and guide others Inclusiveness: Accepting and welcoming differences in other people Caring: The act of being concerned about or interested in other people or situations

Pledge I pledge on my honor to uphold the Objects of Aktion Club. To better my community, my Country, and myself, To help those in need, To demonstrate loyalty to our community and nation And to encourage others to do the same

CNH alone has 39 chartered Aktion Clubs and has been growing in recent years. The club truly demonstrates inclusiveness and spreads the message that anyone and everyone has the ability to serve their community.

Key clubs can co-sponsor Aktion clubs, just like they can with K-Kids or Builders Clubs Also, planning service projects with your local Aktion Club is a great way to connect the KFamily, as well as to get amazing to know members of this organization who who share the same goal of bettering their communities that Key Club does!









Higher education is furthering your academic career after high school, and attending college or university, potentially even graduate school.



Expand your knowledge and skills Career preparation Pursue your passion Personal development/ character building ➔ Financial gain ➔ More job opportunities ➔ Continue your Kiwanis family journey through Circle K International ➔ ➔ ➔ ➔

College isn’t for everybody! However, take every opportunity that life offers you. You’ll never know if you don’t try!

As high school students, you should start thinking about your life after graduation! It’s never too late to start thinking about the rest of your life. Higher education is something to take into consideration.

MEET MEET YOUR YOUR DISTRICT DISTRICT BOARD BOARD : C CN NH H D DIISSTTRRIIC CTT V VIISSUUA ALL M MEED DIIA A EED DIITTO ORR Oxford Academy | Division 30 South | Region 3 I used to play Minecraft and League of Legends after school, every day from 7th to 9th grade! A bowl of H̟ ti̋u khô or ph̛ tái is my favorite (Vietnamese) comfort food. According to my best friend, I lick my lips a lot while I'm focused on work!

There are more places I've been to than the time I have to describe them. What can I say about Key Club? Like many, the community was my "happy place." I joined Key Club as a very shy and quiet girl who found volunteering events reminiscent of those more simple elementary school days. As such, I volunteered a lot during freshman year. Too much, possibly? You could find me at almost every single event, but my skills as a leader really kicked off once I was appointed as Oxford Academy Key Club's Publicist and Division 30 South's (D30S) Executive Assistant (EA). (Seriously, though, if I had known what I know now, after all these years of experience, I could've been so much more creative with how I worked!) Anyhow, it was then my love for leadership soared even higher. I remember the events that then led to me being elected as Lieutenant Governor of D30S. The love people have for the clubs, divisions, or districts they serve is indescribable. Never before, besides my lovely mother and my Netflix account, did I have something in my life that could make me cry so many tears of joy. I'll tell you my most interesting experience, though. It was fairly recent, District Convention 2017. What made the experience interesting was a specific moment. I can remember being surrounded by the members I served, the Sunny Key Clubbers of D30S. It was the end of the last general session on Saturday night. I was taking quite some time backstage to gather my things. Yet, when I came out, Division 30 South was still waiting for me. Next thing I knew, everyone was yelling the "L-O-V-E I love my L-T-G!" cheer and I was enveloped in the tightest hug. You wouldn't believe how much I cried, but it's that love that's brought me to where I am today. My memories in Key Club are memories I'll never forget.

District Visual Media Editor (DVME) is a brand new position to the CNH Key Club District, meaning I am the first recorded DVME in CNH history! Here’s a list of the main directives I follow: Create, promote, and post monthly video series (i.e. “What’s Poppin’ CNH”) providing district and Int’l updates featuring various CNH members, pertinent/ promotional information, and reminders. Develop a visual media resource team to assist clubs and district officers for their visual media needs Provide visual media for district convention and other district events Review, revise as appropriate and promote protocols for submission of items to be posted to any CNH account

Getting through


Even though senioritis is probably hitting you hard, don’t give up yet! This is your last year in high school. Your last time seeing your friends in class. Your last time in Key Club. Your last time to make a difference. Don’t waste your last year in high school; use it to do something worthwhile. Leave a legacy in your home, school, and community.



Although freshman year is the most intimidating, it is the most fun. Take this first step as an adolescent as your chance to explore. Join all the clubs that your interested in. Who cares if they’re not career-related! Explore and find your passions now.


Junior year is arguably the most important high school year. During this year, you really need to focus on your grades and standardized testing prep. You’re going to feel like giving up so many times this year, but keep motivated. Avoid drama; find friends who push you to be your best. Remember that mental health > your GPA. Sophomore year is honestly not that hard. Just continue being proactive in all of your classes and extracurriculars. Don’t be afraid to apply for club boards, no matter how intimidating the interview processes might be. Just go for it.

Treat Yourself!

If you are overly anxious about performance, work through your negative beliefs, especially the beliefs about the implications of school failure. Challenge your negative thoughts that your worth as a person or future prospects hinge entirely on your grades. Good performance will be achieved only when you beat your fears and discover your own worth. Also, don’t forget to give yourself time to unwind. Take a detox from social media. Read a nice book. Spend time with family. Buy a fidget spinner. Do anything to help you relax! Enjoy setting goals for yourself, so you can transcend your weaknesses and reach your full potential. Your study goals must be realistic and achievable. For example, start with small steps to reach higher targets.

Set Goals!

Achieving some goals will certainly motivate you to reach more challenging targets. Another motivating factor would be to understand that you work primarily for yourself and your future career. Apart from the external rewards that your parents promise you, you must understand that studying well is your chance for self development.

Hi, I’m William Zhang

My name is William and I am honored to introduce myself as the past international trustee for the West Virginia, California – Nevada – Hawaii, and Jamaica districts.The job of International Trustee entails working with the district boards of 3 districts assigned to them, to linking these 3 districts as 'sister districts’, while working with the international board and lastly serving on one or more international committee. This term was great being able to librate with you all. Already, I am a 'has been'. How exciting. But, how bittersweet! Although, it was all worth the while; the entire journey—I would have walked it again.I wonder where your Key Club journey will take you. I wonder what experiences and memories you'll make. I wonder if I influenced, or helped you somehow. All I can do is wish you the absolute best for you. Make it a good one! Something that we should all be excited about is our new International Trustee is Luke Gilmore from the Kansas District. You will learn more about him in our upcoming newsletter.


I, William Sims believe, LEAVING A LEGACY means leaving something better than you found it. It means making your mark. A lasting impression. Those who come after you start in a better place and enjoy even greater opportunity. Key Club International has much to be proud of, but there is more to accomplish. As your International President, I will work to lead Key Club International to new heights and leave a legacy through.

The 5 Objectives Leadership





iCan Bike Camp LILY MARSHALL, D14 LTG The Division 14 Blue Robots have been participating in the iCan Bike camp for a few years now, and every year Key Clubbers get super excited to participate. The Camp, which is a camp for children with disabilities aged 5 to 18, is 5 days long and volunteers get to choose a two hour time frame to participate. At the camp, volunteers get the opportunity to work with and teach a disabled child how to safely and successfully ride a bike. Some riders and families even travel from cities hours away just to attend the week long camp! The first couple of days the kids get to start out on a special training bike created by our local bike shop and gradually end up on a tandem bike, then a two wheeled, regular bike. Each volunteer is teamed up with the same rider each day, so it allows everyone to develop a bond with the child they are paired with. We taught them how to wear their helmets and why they are important as well as many other safety tips they need to know before hopping on and riding. Then, we let them start riding with the volunteers by their side, to make sure they were safe and to help them when they fell.

Created by the Service Projects Committee |

iCanBikeCamp Reflection Everyone who participated in the event came out saying how it changed their life. We all remember what it was like when we first learned how to ride, and to get to be a part of the life changing experience with the children was amazing. Because of their disabilities it was harder for them to get the hang of it, but not one rider let that stop them. Most riders ended the camp saying that they can now ride a bike all by themselves, and if not, they definitely made huge progress in reaching that goal. Every day of the camp the kids were ecstatic to snap their helmet on and get back on the bike to ride again. Most of us even made close bonds with the children and their families. It was overall one of the best experiences to be able to teach a child how to safely ride a bike. It's definitely something riders, families, and volunteers will never forget.

Governor's Project Tip! If your Club or Division has water bottles at events, BEE sure to collect them and recycle them! Your Club/Division will receive the profits & help the earth! - Middle College, D27N

ARTICLES & VISUALS 1 Arroyo Key: Cleanup Party Yawen Lin, Division 2, Arroyo

Though it’s summer, it’s no excuse for us to stop our passion for helping our community. Arroyo Key Club held a cleanup work party located at Marina Park. Marina Park is one of the most well-known parks in our community. It is well cherished by people of all ages. Elderly citizens taking a stroll down the path, teenagers playing volleyball on the grass, and children riding their bike around enjoy the park. We’ve decided to clean up this well cherished park to preserve the beauty of the area. A group of us started walking around the grassy area of the park looking for trash to acquire. We were quite surprised to find a lot of trash hidden beneath the rocks. Though the surface area seems to nice and peaceful, beneath it all under all the rocks was a bunch of flaws. It made us realize how important it was for us to value our environment and parks more. It inspired us to look for more local places in San Leandro to clean up. Though the sound of cleaning up or picking up trash might disinterest people, this event was pretty eventful for members. While cleaning up, members bonded, saw cute animals around the park, and feasted on ice cream together afterwards. The amount of trash we accumulated at this event was shocking, but we were pretty proud of ourselves for cleaning up our community.

“One person can make a difference, but when a group of passionate Key Clubbers come together to cleanup Marina Park, a lot was changed in a positive way.”

2 Bon Dance

Rhesel Rivera, Division 22K, Damien Memorial

With summertime festivities and the great feeling of spending time with good company, the Damien Memorial School Key Club tapped into the cultural festivities of the Bon Festival. In the Rissho Kosei-Kai Bon Dance in Pearl City, the members served the community by helping out in the concession stands, serving food at the Bon Festival. Gleaming lanterns and the sounds of the drums at the festival created such a beautiful

aura and the people encountered, through volunteering, made the work even worth the while. There, the Damien Key Club members participated and volunteered among ongoing festivities and the Bon Dance. Whether it was behind the concession booths, taking orders, or participating in the dancing, the members of the Damien Memorial Key Club were able to learn more about the culture and thoroughly enjoyed themselves at the festival.

3 Bellflower Kiwanis Firework Sale Terilynn Ear, Division 13S, Bellflower

To celebrate America’s independence, Bellflower High School Key Clubbers volunteered to help out Bellflower Kiwanis with setting up a firework stand located on the corner of Artesia and Downey on June 30th through July 4th. Volunteers, that were 16 years old and older, helped sell fireworks to our community alongside Kiwanis members who were also there to help sell fireworks and supervise our stand. From 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. each day, Bellflower Kiwanis sold a variety of fireworks ranging from sparklers to fountains to provide a safe yet fun fourth of July for the local community. Key Clubbers that were under the age of 16 years old also participated by helping to pass out flyers and encourage community members to buy fireworks. Alongside Bellflower, Gahr and Mayfair Key Club joined together to keep each other company and to give a fellow Key Clubber a helpful hand. Bellflower Key Club continues to strive to keep our community safe and happy by contributing our time to help sell fireworks and cannot wait to help out Bellflower Kiwanis again.

4 Cabinet Training

Bill Yen, Division 35E, Walnut

June 25th was a historical day for Walnut Key Club. It was our first ever Cabinet Training hosted locally at one of our fellow officer’s home. With a potluck in plan, powerpoints set, and activities prepared, the officers carried out an agenda of full of learning and bonding. Cabinet is a system at Walnut Key Club that serves the members and help the officers in keeping the club in check. With 26 unique personalities, our leaders went through a day dedicated to learning about their role in Key Club and the organization they are a part of.

1 Each officer presented a different powerpoint, going over many topics such as Hosting Events and Icebreakers. The presentations were split across the schedule before and after activities and meal time to ensure an attentive learning experience for our future leaders. The day was not just full of education and note-taking, but still included forms of entertainment. We had activities ranging from getting to know each other and learning about ourselves. Everyone got to know each other in a game that involved a ball of string, and we each learned the deeper meaning of our values soon after. During the evening, every cabinet member and officer was split into two teams for a classic game of Charades. A classic form of entertainment that provides humor and laughter out of the entire audience. One memorable experience with Charades was when the topic “Disney” came up, and our performer was given the performance of “Shrek,” which was a Dreamworks’ film. When everyone realized the invalid prompt, the room full of laughter has left me with one of the best memories to look back on whenever I think of Walnut Key Club. That evening, I learned a lot -- Walnut Key Club is more than just a community. It’s where friends are made and family is found, where memories are created and achievements are celebrated. To be excited for what’s to come is an understatement, but to know that everyone’s hard work will contribute to success is already beyond a doubt.








ARTICLES & VISUALS 5 Castro Valley’s Annual Summer BBQ Patrice Cheung, Division 2, Castro Valley

The first day of summer started cold and early for some Castro Valley officers. They awoke early to make sure they reserved the best spot at Lake Chabot for their members. Just as the sun peaked out of the clouds and the temperatures started to rise perfect for a BBQ, the members started to show up. As they filled in we all got in a circle and began to play a few ice breakers and make sure that everyone had a blast interacting with one another. Everyone got a little too close for comfort in a fun game of human knot. As the day progressed we started to get hungry and our alumni started on the grill. After a short wait, we were presented with beautifully crafted burgers. Our delicious array of food was soon forgotten when the pieing started. Thank you to all the members that participated in our pie an officer auction. Amy Zheng even got a 3-in-1 deal when she bid on the class rep. Everyone had a good laugh watching their friends get pied and struggle to get the sticky mess out of their faces, clothes, and hair. The day started to wind down and come to an end as everyone started to sit and talk to each other about their upcoming plans. Soon everyone’s rides arrived and the first day of summer came to an end. Good luck to all Key Clubbers and their summer festivities!

6 Festival of Folktales

Alan Nguyen, Division 4N, Rancho Alamitas

The purpose of the Festival of Folktales event was to volunteer at game booths for the event that Huntington Beach Library was holding for young kids, such as up and coming middle schoolers and under. All of the volunteers were each distributed into different booths with different games for kids to win prizes such as toys and drinks. The games that the event had were ring toss, plinko, bean bag throw, and many more. The event itself needed smiles and positive attitudes being that it dealt with kids and their parents and one did not want to be a sad volunteer and scare the kids and upset the parents. Each booth had multiple volunteers assigned and it showed how Rancho Alamitos’ Key Club has great spirit and excellent teamwork with not only themselves but the adults who are already there before them. We were also able

to see the determination and different strategies kids would use in order to win the game and obtain a prize while also seeing kids who were very young and had the support of their parents to help them attempt to win a prize.

7 4th of July Pancake Breakfast Jacob Emerson, Division 30N, Sonora

Nothing is better than starting off the day with a good breakfast, especially on the 4th of July. The Kiwanis Club of Brea set off to help people get that great start of their day at the annual Brea County Fair on the morning of Tuesday, July 4th. Key Clubbers, in tandem with the Boy Scouts of America, arrived at the event around 6:30 to assemble the tents and set up the food to be served to the people of Brea. From there, the rest of the event was spent with everyone cooking, transporting, and serving the pancakes and bacon around the stand. In addition to the food, live music, shops, and other food stands were present for everyone to enjoy. The fair is a time for citizens of Brea to enjoy their Independence Days with their families and is a beloved event by everyone in the community. Volunteers were also able to enjoy the event while creating new friendships and enjoying the festivities.

8 Home Depot Kid’s Workshop Jeff Chen, Division 44S, Foothill

The Home Depot Kid’s workshop is a monthly event for the Foothill Dinos. The event is always enjoyable for us because not only is it a pleasure to help our community, but it is always fun to attend. Every first Saturday of the month, Home Depot provides free DIY construction kits for the community and everyone is welcome! This event helps bring the community together and provides an opportunity for families to bond together over a fun and simple activity. In addition to being able to build toy airplanes and cars, Home Depot also provides paint and brushes so children can show their creativity. The variety and uniqueness of the DIY projects never fails to surprise. For this month, we built a house. Seeing the joy in the children’s eyes always make this event an event worth going to.

“It’s unfortunate when they miss the nail and hit your finger instead. Ouch!”


ARTICLES & VISUALS 9 Huntington Park Relay For Life

Gracie Cardona, Division 13N, Huntington Park

For the Month of July, the Huntington Park Key Club ran several bake sales to fundraise for the Relay For Life 24 hour cancer event. We targeted the Huntington Park Library, but for this specific event, we were stationed at the East Los Angeles Public Library. We set up a table covered in sweets and treats and sold everything for a dollar or less. The delicious items we sold were brownies, sugar cookies, chocolate chip cookies, Hot Cheetos, Capri Suns and Oreos. By having these Bake Sales, not only did we provide affordable and tasty treats to our local community, but we also did our part by fundraising money for Relay For Life. This was a memorable event because even if people did not buy snacks, many of them socialized with us.

“It was a great way for us to realize how great the people in our community are and how they are filled with interesting stories that we were grateful to hear.” Also, helping out with cancer survivors and fighters was really touching, inspiring and extremely emotional.

10 July Fourth Parade

Muhammad Rayeed Islam, Division 10S, Gabrielino

This month, on the Fourth of July, Gabrielino’s Key Club volunteered at San Gabriel’s annual Fourth of July Parade and Kids’ Day event, helping the community come together to celebrate the country’s 241st birthday. The service began at 7am, and members showed their enthusiasm for it very early on, with almost all of them arriving long before the start time. The first order of the day for volunteers was to help set up the many parts of the event, including the game booths, food stations, and even parts of the parade itself. Around two hours later, at 9:00, the day’s festivities began with a parade meant to celebrate July 4th and the city’s heritage. Once the parade had concluded, at around 9:30, volunteers faced a rush of eager customers at their respective stations, but they handled this sudden challenge well, making snow cones, serving popcorn, preparing games,

and controlling lines, thus making sure everyone was served well and that everything was done efficiently. During this time, in a show of the dedication and caring that runs amongst Key Clubbers, members chose to fill in for one another at various spots so that the people they were replacing could eat and have a little break before getting back to work. Finally, at around 12:30 in the afternoon, members helped the event organizers clean up, doing things such as picking up trash, deconstructing the booths, moving materials to and forth, and taking down the decorations, all of which helped the event organizers clean up quickly. Once clean-up had been completed, members were able to enjoy some of the other activities at the event, including water balloon fights and other water activities, thus giving them some well-deserved relaxation and thus ending their days’ work well. When asked about the service, fellow member, Rumaisa Islam, said of it that:

“I enjoyed it because I got to interact with people from throughout the community and everyone was just out and having a great time celebrating Independence Day.” Her sentiment was generally echoed by all of the other members and it showed that, all-in-all, the service was a delightful and very successful event and that it was a great reflection of the sense of community that is so characteristic of Key Club and its members.

11 Key Club Training Conference Sylvia Young, Division 34N, Aragon

On June 24, Aragon Key Club, along with other clubs from Division 34 North and across Region 17, participated in Key Club Training Conference at Manresa State Beach. At this region-wide event, we attended various workshops with a short lunch break in between. Following the workshops, each division held their own DCMs, however, having already held ours, we played a series of ice breakers followed by a division sand sculpture building contest where we partnered up with Division 34 South to raise over $80!





12 12 Liquid Run

Ashley Nguyen, Division 4E, Villa Park

Members of Division 4 East Key Club gathered in Newport Beach on a warm Sunday afternoon to volunteer at the annual Liquid Run. The Liquid Run is a floating obstacle course made of several inflatable slides, swings, and trampolines. Runners slip and slide their way through the course, and after completion, participants have fun splashing in the cool water and playing with various other floaties. Key Club assisted in the operation of the obstacle course by registering participants of the run, handing out life vests, and awarding medallions for all who finished. Other volunteers helped participants on the course itself by pulling runners out of the water and back onto the course when they fell. After the event ended, volunteers disassembled the course and brought the numerous obstacles onto land so that the pieces could be deflated and put away. As a thank you from the coordinators of the Liquid Run, the race officials offered all of the volunteers free admission for the course and Division 4 East had a splash working and racing together. Villa Park Bulletin Editor Ashley Nguyen commented,


“It was really a lot of fun working with my fellow D4East members and I got to know a lot of them better. I look forward to volunteering here again next year!”

12 Project Greenlight

Daisy Kim, Division 16S, Burbank


Every summer, Project Greenlight (JensenSchmidt Tennis Academy) is filled with laughter, special moments, and new experiences. During this three-day program, young adults/children with down syndrome are able to learn tennis techniques, develop new friendships, and strengthen their mental and social abilities. Around this time of the year the white tigers always love joining in at our local tennis center and helping out. Each day of Project Greenlight includes working with a “buddy” one-on-one at the Burbank Tennis Center. A white tiger and his or her buddy go from station to station to participate in different, fun activities. Activities at these stations can range from learning how to volley or serve, or group activities such as relay races. Big smiles are seen on everyone’s faces, high-fives are seen everywhere you go, and words of encouragement are heard on the tennis


ARTICLES & VISUALS courts. At the end of Project Greenlight, a strong bond is established between the Key Clubbers and their buddies, and they say farewell until next year. In the midst of all the fun, positive impacts are made in the community and on yourself and your buddy. Division 16 South is honored to have been a part of such a wonderful service event for yet another year.

13 Relay for Life

Amber Monteleone, Division 8, American Canyon On June 24 through June 25, the Dozier Libbey Key Club hosted our 2nd DWS, the American Cancer Society Relay for Life. This event was located at the Deer Valley Football Field, but that didn’t stop Key Clubbers from attending. We had fourteen members from Deer Valley helping out! Thanks to the leader, Julian Philipie, we got to run our own Key Club booth while assisting in other stations of the event. Not only that, we had a ton of fun socializing with the other Key Clubbers who attended the event.

This event got Key Clubbers to get involved in many ways. If you thought there was a dry moment during this event, you were wrong. We set up water fights for all to come and join, splashing each other around. We ran laps for the relay, taking breaks at the mist hut. Heck, we also ran our own spirit lap led by our Spirit Coordinator Joren Hitosis! At the end of our lap, we won a spirit battle against the Deer Valley Cheerleaders! It was a great way to spend the summer as well.

and thai tea with the option of a floatie, and our division made the most sales out of every division. Division 10 North was one of the few divisions who sold out completely and it was such an unexpected accomplishment. Despite being the smallest division in the region, region picnic really showed us that we are capable of so much more great things. Along with the tea, our division also sold some merchandise, including tshirts, hats, visors, pins, and spirit packs. It was really fascinating to see so many people in Division 10 North show up to this event because we usually have much fewer than the number of people who showed up. Not only was it incredibly hot with the weather being over one hundred degrees, everyone had a job to do, which made the whole situation even more stressful. However, everyone in our division worked together with the sales and organizing that it went so smoothly. The Lieutenant Governors did a really good job with the ice breakers, and through the ice breaker sessions, I was able to learn so many new names and make so many new friends. Overall, it was an unforgettable experience and I got to take home lots of memories.


As some members had to leave, others continued working hard to make this event successful. This event wouldn’t be called “Relay for Life” without a reason. Some members assisted in sponsoring cars for races. Others at our booth sold energy drinks and bubbles. We also set up a luminaria that spelled out “HERO” symbolizing our hope for cancer treatment. With the great efforts from our Key Clubbers, we believe this event truly became a relay for life.

14 Region Picnic

Crystal Chang, Division 10N, Temple City

Region picnic this year was a huge success to Division 10 North because everything went really well and smooth. It was quite the experience because I got to have a real life encounter with business. Our division sold milk tea



Division Recognition Hello members, officers, and advisors of the month! 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! Buzzing with Service,

June District Calendar

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 what’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!
