from the editor what's the buzz, cnh?

Happy November! Can you believe that we are more than halfway through the 2017-2018 term? It has flown by so quickly, and I have had a blast serving you all. I have enjoyed myself so much this term – I have served, laughed, and loved more than ever during this term, tand I owe it all to you! Thank you for your hard work, dedication, and service so far. Let’s keep this spirit going through until DCON 2018! Speaking of DCON, now is the time to start thinking about fundraising. Transportation and admission costs may be a financial burden for members. Come up with ways to fundraise in order to subsidize costs in the future so that more members can attend DCON! The DCON 2018 theme is Service Safari and will be taking place April 13-15 in Reno, Nevada. Hope to see you there!

Dues are due soon! If you have not yet paid your dues, be sure to do it now! BEE proactive to make sure that you are officially registered as a member for the 2017-2018 term. You must be a dues paid member to attend DCON! If you have any questions regarding where our dues go, how to submit dues, or anything at all, contact your club treasurer or our District Treasurer Vivian Chu. Club and Division editors, remember to submit articles and visuals! You are likely to be featured in the District Newsletter if you continue to submit each month. Thank you all for reading! I’ll see you next month.

It’s time to give thanks (although you should every single day)! This month is best known for the holiday of Thanksgiving. Make the most of this month by giving back to your communities in a way that shows your appreciation to them. Whether it be writing cards for our troops, or making gift baskets for your Kiwanians, anything you do will leave an impact to the receivers. Your actions are impactful; please remember that. If not by the people you wish to impact, rest assured that you ha e definitely im acted three eo le me Margarett, and Vivian.

han you. o the members without you none of this would have ever been accomplished. Your love for this wonderful organization was shown through your attendance and your contributions. han you. o the e ecuti es you have been enduring the stress that this level brings. Your endurance is what inspires me to work as hard as you two do. Not only am I blessed to be in your presence, but to work closely with such passionate individuals makes me forever indebted to the higher being that has allowed for this to happen. Thank you. Thank you for taking the time to read this. I love you all.

Angelica Garcia District Governor cnhkc.govc1718@gmail.com

I want to personally thank you for your hard work so far. Fall Rally North has quickly come and gone, with the preliminary numbers of 3,600+ attendees and $42,000+ raised for the Pediatric Trauma Program. I am so grateful to serve alongside such incredible student leaders. o the board members you continue to amaze me every day. I knew you all worked above and beyond, but this is unbelievable.

JiMin Margarett Lee hello, CNH!

I hope that you all are having a wonderful beginning of fall! With the trees turning orange and the weather becoming more chilly, that can only mean one thing — MORE SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES! Remember to keep COOL and continuously work to achieve the goals you set out in the beginning of the year. Keeping your goal in mind will not only help you stay focused and on track, but also help you achieve your goals one at a time. Fall season is the best season for service. Be sure to reach out to different service facilities and ask if you can help with any projects they may be having! Maybe ask your local food shelters in advance if you can help with Thanksgiving food bagging/distribution projects or if you can help with local food drives. There are so many service opportunities in this time of year, so always BEE on the lookout!

District Secretary

Always remember to take care of your health first so wor roacti ely to ensure that you don’t end up overextending yourself during these next crucial months. Especially to my fellow seniors be sure to finish those college apps and submit as soon as you can! Once you submit, I promise that you’ll feel much less stressed. As always, I’m always here to chat if you need to!

District Treasurer

what’s buzzin, CNH?

November has arrived! With two months left in this year, I hope that you all lived a year you are proud of. If you have yet to achieve any goals you set in January, keep pushing! I have firm faith in you all. The early bird dues deadline has passed as of today, however, if the club you serve has yet to pay dues, there is still the regular dues deadline - December 1st. I cannot stress how important it is for the club you serve to submit dues by this deadline. Should you ever need any help, I am always here to assist you!

Fall Rally North passed in October, and Fall Rally South will occur early November. Many clubs typically face a decline in attendance after these two events, which is why it is imperative that you give the members you serve a reason to continue participating in Key Club. Be sure to attend service events, participate in as many club and division

Luke Gilmore

events as possible, and encourage others to continue their passion as well. Since November is a month of thankfulness (though you should be appreciative year round!), remember to take time to show gratitude for everything you have. Take time to thank an officer, advisor, or member for their efforts. Show appreciation for your friends, family, and anyone who supports you. Going off of this, I would like to say thank you all so, so much for everything you do for your homes, schools, and communities. Serving the largest and most spirit district of Key Club International is truly an honor and privilege, and I’m grateful for all of your service, spirit, and passion. Continue to push through this hectic fall season, and as always, thank you for your service!

greetings, CNH key club!

I hope you all have had a great October. October is a busy month for the CNH District for sure, as the Fall Rally season is starting and as RTC season is nearing its end. I want to commend all of you for your wonderful work to the betterment of the CNH District and to Key Club International. I have just a few reminders. First, please be sure to turn in your Trick-or- Treat money that your club raised by the end of October. Trick-or- Treat for UNICEF is an amazing way for Key Clubs to raise funds for the Eliminate Project. Please continue to promote this initiative to your clubs. This year, the International Board Committee on Service has proposed a $700,000 goal towards our $3 million goal that Key Club International hopes to fulfill by the year 2020. Key Club Week is approaching! Go ahead and mark it on your calendars—Key Club Week will be held on November 6-10, 2017. Encourage your clubs to participate in this week full of service and kick off Kiwanis Family Month! Wear your favorite Key

Club gear, recognize those who have been impactful in your Key Club journey, perform a service project impacting one of Key Club’s sponsored charities, take part in a day of ‘random acts of kindness’, or team up with your local Kiwanis Family branches and participate in a day of serving your community. International Convention will be here before you know it! The 2018 Key Club International Convention will be held on July 4-8, 2018 in Chicago, Illinois. More information will be coming soon in future International updates! That’s all for this message! I hope you guys have an amazing rest of October. Please feel free to contact me via one of my media platforms listed below. Keep up the amazing work, and keep impacting your communities, clubs, divisions, and district!

EFFECTIVE EFFECTIVE PHOTOGRAPHY PHOTOGRAPHY A QUICK TALK ON EDITING YOUR MEDIA Here’s some pointers on how to make the most out of your visuals!



There are a lot of softwares/apps to use for editing your photos! Here are a few: - Adobe Photoshop - Adobe Lightroom (Recommended) - VSCO (For on-the-go) - Afterlight; $0.99 - Snapseed You composed the picture, but now you have to post-edit! BEE creative!

Good question! - Photography is more than just snapping a photo. - Make your photography your own by editing.. - Color Balance - Tone - Exposure - and more!


This is Adobe Lightroom, but the concept stays the same!

You can use a lot of software to edit! As mentioned before, some basic aspects of a photo to edit would be Color Balance/Tone, and Exposure.

There’s no strict rule to editing.

These parts photo editing help you color correct or add your own flare.

The main focus is to have a good balance of color that is aesthetic!

One of the many programs the CNH Foundation is known to support is Hope 4 Kids. Recently, the Foundation has given an organization known as Family Promise several grants targeted towards their focus: the prevention of children becoming homeless.

These affiliates of Family Promise received a grant of almost $12,500 from the Foundation for Hope 4 Kids: Honolulu Sacramento Las Vegas Santa Clarita Long Beach Orange County Modesto

With these funds, each affiliate will work towards providing aid to families and their children living in shelters, or those who are about to become homeless within their respective area. 



For the month of November, celebrate and emphasize the importance of partnership in community service between the branches of the Kiwanis Family! Together, we can make a difference by improving lives and giving back to our communities by serving others! Ideas to get Involved: •

Joint meetings with another Kiwanis Family club

KEEPING UP WITH THE KIWANIS Ever wondered what other members of the Kiwanis Family are up to? Introducing: Keeping Up with the Kiwanis! A monthly publication where you can learn more about the other branches of the Kiwanis Family, hear their stories, and discover your own K-Family moments.


Meet Mr. Joshua Chang

What is your role in Kiwanis? I serve as Mentor to the District Visual Media Editor and Communications and Marketing committee, Region 18 Advisor, and Kiwanis Advisor to McKinley Key Club. What is your Kiwanis moment? It's a actually a Key Club moment! I helped repair a trail in high school and a decade later remembered (when revisiting the trail), I put these steps here! What makes Kiwanis so special and different in your opinion? I think many Kiwanians serve very much from the heart and I feel a close K Family connection throughout the organization. Why did you join Kiwanis? Honestly, because my friends who were still in high school were in danger of losing the club because their sponsoring club got too small. I stayed because I enjoyed working with others to improve the community. Would you rather be a pirate or a cowboy? Why? Paniolo (Hawaiian style cowboy) because of the strong connection to nature. What is your spirit animal and why? Honu (Hawaiian Sea Turtle), because they always seem calm when I see them diving.

DISTRICT MONTHLY RECOGNITION OCTOBER 2017 MEMBER Sanjana has done an outstanding job in regards to her duties as a member and being part of the division leadership team. Her effort as Division Fundraising Coordinator has truly helped the division in regards to raising funds for the Pediatric Trauma Program and the Eliminate Project.

OFFICER Although Kayla's home club had a rough start, Kayla has been reaching out more for help, which allowed them to get events up quicker and got more members to attend. She never fails to serve her club, division, and community.

ADVISOR Mr. Collazos is a fantastic advisor. It is his first year as one and he is so excited. He promotes Key Club attends all our meetings. He has also been instrumental in helping the officers through their struggles. He lets them lead but constantly makes himself open for them to come to him. He helps work with the administration to set up events.Â

KEY KEY CLUB CLUB PITCH PITCH With member retention hitting a low in the winter season, it is important to always be actively promoting Key Club and engaging potential members, so it is important to have your own Key Club pitch memorized!

Here are some tips: + Know who you are appealing to. Does he want service hours? A supportive community of friends? An outlet to be more spirited? Use your knowledge to craft the pitch! Know your audience. +Be honest. Don’t make up lies about Key Club statistics. + Keep the conversation light. Don’t purposely use flowery language.

Here is an example of a pitch: Hey John Doe! Key Club International is just one part of the Kiwanis family. Kiwanis International, Circle K International, Builders Club, Kiwanis Kids, and Aktion Club also are branches of our family. Adult and youth members form one of the largest and most effective service organizations in the world. Key Club is more than merely accumulating service hours; it’s a supportive community of diverse people from different walks of life. Every service event, DCM, and Kiwanis meeting you go to is a step towards building a community that you are proud to be a part of. We are able to use our service to brighten up people’s days and lead each other toward change for the better. You are truly making a difference.

Meet Your DB: Kiwanis Family & Foundation Chair


What are your Goals this term? What does KFF Chair do? “As Kiwanis Family and Foundations (KFF) Chair, I connect the 7 family branches of Kiwanis. In addition, I promote Kiwanis Foundation grants and Scholarships. I work actively to promote Kiwanis One-Day, Kiwanis Family Month, and the new Kiwanis Expo at DCON 2018.�

“I plan to create manuals for scholarships and charters for all 7 types of Kiwanis Family clubs. I also hope to make PTP shirts and make the Kiwanis Expo at DCON 2018 a succcess!�

What is your Key Club Story? “I began at a weak club my freshman year. I then served at president and Division Service Project Coordinator for a year each, and now I serve CNH!�

GabyYonarta communications & marketing chair san marino | division 10 north | region 13

about cm The CM Committee is one of the 7 standing committees on District Board, and here’s a list of main directives I follow: To conduct responsible marketing campaigns in order to promote externally programs and activities of the CNH District and Key Club International To promote district events internally within the organization to foster greater participation To develop innovative new club building, membership recruitment, and membership retention materials Promote these resources and visuals regularly to the members, club officers, and Lt. Governors

my key club moment My Key Club moment was Region Training Conference 2014. It was my first ever Key Club event that I attended, and as cliché as it sounds it was the day I fell in love with everything about this organization. My favorite memory, though, would have to be planning RTC last year. Our region team bonded a lot so planning felt more like fun that work, and the all nighter we pulled the night before is a night I’ll never forget. The smiles on the faces of over 400 members definitely made all the stress of planning worth it, but more than anything I was glad to have had the opportunity to create the same amazing experience I had for the next generation of Key Clubbers & leaders.

FOCUSING ON THE SECOND-HALF OF THE TERM STAY MOTIVATED! Although we all may be feeling drained and exhausted from balancing school, Key Club, and other extracurricular activities, the members you serve are more spirited than ever! Continue BEEing an exceptional leader/inspiration to those around you.

COMMON CAUSES FOR LACK OF MOTIVATION Procrastination Lack of Interest Stress/Feeling Overwhelmed Low Self-Esteem Fear of Failure

HERE ARE A FEW WAYS TO HAVE A GREAT REST OF THE TERM... After the Fall Rally Season, you have now been exposed to the other amazing divisions in our district. Meet new people, and learn more about the Cali-Nev-Ha District together! The Member Relations Committee is connecting people through District Pen-Pals; sign up by November 15th to meet your new best friend!

Stay motivated through the second half of the term by consistently planning and/or attending service events! *You can donate to the Pediatric Trauma Program (PTP) all year long!

Winter Socials can be a great way for the club you serve to bond and celebrate the holiday season!

For those of you who aspire to be a worker bee, you can reach out and ask club officers if you can work with them, so you can learn more about that specific position and get you ready for the upcoming term!

(Ex: Hot Chocolate Social, Movie Night, Gingerbread House Making, etc.)

Contact your current club officers or lieutenant governor for more information!

Event Feature:




D20+32 & D08 Edition !

1) Location - It is critical to have access to a kitchen, along with AV or IT connections and a comfortable room large enough for activities and sleeping bag space for the number of people you expect. For D20/32 & D8’s Awake-a-Thon, the location was set as early as April 2017. Thanks to a Kiwanis Advisor that served on the board of a local church, the divisions secured a carpeted church with an adjoining kitchen. The entire building has wireless internet and two large TV screens. 2) Schedule and Theme - Settled by host (in this case, Fermin and I). A schedule was made to keep everyone active throughout almost the entire night. Activities such as karaoke, zumba, dance parties, spirit cheer battles, and more were planned. 3) Permission and ERFs - An ERF was made and edited. I first had to make sure that the Division 8 Region Advisor approved of it. Fermin was the one who contacted his RA regarding the event. After all the advisors’ approvals were received, I put together an ERF and sent it into the the District Administrator, Mr. Gin. Since I turned it in at the end of June, by the time ICON came around, I was able to ask Mr. Gin about it. He approved, but asked me for a few more details such as confirmation from the Kiwanis Advisor that we would be able to use the facility. After I had the ERF completely approved, I was able to send it out to the members of Division 20 and 32, and Fermin was able to send it to Division 8. We made sure to let clubs know that they must have an ERF form to enter. 4) RSVP- We set up an RSVP form using Google Forms in order to keep track of which clubs and members were attending. 5) Food - Since this entire event was not for profit, we asked for donations from Trader Joes and Kiwanis Advisors. In order to get the Trader Joes donation, I had to turn in a donation request letter to Trader Joes (it is recommended to turn one in weeks prior to the event). Once the request was approved, I was given a date and time to come back to the store and pick up what I needed. Since this event was from 7pm-7am, in order to make sure everyone had enough snacks/food to eat, I relied on the RSVP. 6) Promotion - As the event came closer, promotion for the event increased using social media and email. Along with that, for Division 20 and 32, I had Executive Assistants text club presidents in order to remind them about the forms needed. In the two days leading up to the event, I personally contacted members who RSVP’d to ensure their club had the ERF and that they had their Medical Release Forms ready. 7) Chaperones - Information was given out through Kiwanis meetings, emails, and social media posts. The ratio for this event was 10 students to 1 chaperone, gender specific. This was the most crucial and stressful part. This event could not have happened without having enough chaperones.

THE STEP-BY-STEP (Day of the Event)

8) Set Up - D08 LTG Fermin and I both came early to start setting up the event. All we had to do was bring in all the food, water, and board games. After that, we put away the chairs to make room for people. Tricia Shindledecker, the Region 15 Advisor, set up the table where people checked in. - During check in, our Region Advisor collected from each member a medical release form, proof of being a dues-paid member, one ERF from their club, and a $20 donation for the Pediatric Trauma Program. 9) Clean Up - Throughout the night we tried to clean as much possible (I cleaned the chocolate fountain at 3am and then fell asleep till 5), but the final cleaning began at 6:30am when we woke everyone up to get ready to go home.

Written by D20 + 32 LT.G Annaleigh Nguyen

Looking back at this event, I am beyond grateful to every single member who attended because, thanks to them, we were able to raise over $1,000 for the Pediatric Trauma Program. Along with that, sandwiches for the Coffee House Teen Shelter, and cards for Veterans were made. Although during the event everyone got really tired, really quick, I had a blast, especially with the chocolate fountain, hamster balls, and service projects. Since we had a curfew at 10 and all members who were not staying the night had to leave before we closed the doors, the DCM was held at 9pm and many officers and members came out for that. After the event was over, I was beyond tired but I was glad it happened. I felt nothing but happiness that Fermin came down to host the event with me and that chaperones came and stayed up. Written by D20 + 32 LT.G Annaleigh Nguyen Tips & Tricks for Hosting An Awake-a-Thon - Have each club bring a minimum of 1 chaperone. - Bring extra forms and leave them at the check in table just in case anyone forgets. - Have division merchandise out in exchange for donations during this event. - Plan plenty of icebreakers. - Offer alternative activities for those who do not want to do zumba, dance, karaoke, etc... - Have a table and cots for chaperones to sleep on.

The Joint Awake-a-Thon wrapped up just over 12 hours ago. I’ve caught up on a little sleep since then (all day!), and thought I’d send my immediate thoughts before I forget some things. The various clubs contributed just over $1,000 to benefit PTP, which you have to figure is a resounding success for a one-night fundraiser. All the food (lots of food -- burgers, salad, chips for dinner; chocolate chip cookies served hot from the oven, chocolate-fountain with fruit, marshmallows, pretzels etc for dipping; water so everyone could stay hydrated, and on and on) was DONATED, so every penny students contributed was money donated to PTP! Each person contributed $20 for a full evening of unimaginable fun and exhaustion. Service activities included making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches donated to a homeless shelter and holiday cards for servicemembers. Members played games for hours, sang karaoke, played get-to-know-you games, talked, danced everything from K-pop to the electric slide to Latino favorites, and watched movies in the wee hours. A joint DCM was held, and it included time to learn spirit cheers for Fall Rally. One member borrowed blow-up human bounce balls; two members faced off and tried to knock each other off their feet. It was hilarious fun. Region advisor (me, Tricia) and Kiwanis LTG Elect (Pennylee Christensen) for Division 32 even faced off in a tough battle that wisely ended called as a draw. Admittedly. by 4 am, sheer exhaustion took over. Many members caught a few winks before clean up time at 6:30 am. Zombies walked out as the event ended at 7 am. written by region 15 advisor tricia shindledecker

October : UNICEF

“Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces to combat maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT) worldwide. This historic initiative, called “The Eliminate Project”, will protect the lives of babies and mothers all over the globe and will help end this cruel, centuries-old disease. The final push to eliminate MNT requires $110 million and the dedicated work of UNICEF and every member of the Kiwanis Family. The more than 100 million women, along with their future newborns, who will be protected through global MNT elimination efforts live in areas scarred by poverty, poor medical infrastructure or humanitarian crises. The Eliminate Project will also help pave the way for the delivery of other lifesaving services, such as clean water, nutrition, and other vaccines. ***Submissions for the October Spotlight are due on November 5th! Please fill out the form on the CNH CyberKey, and email all pictures to cnhkc.sp@gmail!

November : Kiwanis Family

“Kiwanis International brings the world together, one community at a time. Today, we stand with more than 600,000 members in more than 80 countries from Kiwanis to Key Club, to Circle K and beyond. Each community has different needs, and Kiwanis empowers members to pursue creative ways to serve the needs of children through local projects and fundraising. Kiwanis hosts nearly 150,000 service projects each year. Use the month of November to give thanks for the wonderful acts done through the Kiwanis Family.”

PTP Hospital Card Making

Robert Medina | Colony High Key Club | D15S | R13 This pro ect deeply impacted our club by allowing members to be actively involved in our community, as well as brightening the days of pediatric patients that have faced traumatic in uries. This pro ect was very successful. Many members and officers took part in the event and many cards were made. I personally think that the only aspect of this pro ect that could be improved is being able to think of an event like this sooner for our members. Contact: robmed2000@gmail.com


Natalie Goldstone | Montgomery Key Club | D32 | R15 “Our president began planning three months in advance because it would be a large event. All of the officers then worked together and divided the work of contacting other organi ations, getting materials, making signs and posters, and buying food for the stands. We received a grant for $290 for a ginormous amount of helmets to be handed out at the event. The purpose of the event was to educate young children about proper bike safety and how to ride their bikes to prevent in ury. The fire and police departments were there to educate the children about bike safety and brought their firetruck as well. There were also food tents where meals were being sold and a bike blender where the kids could blend their own smoothie for . Contact natacatgold yahoo.com

Fall Rally West Region 18 “At this event, our club got the opportunity to meet other Key Clubbers from across our region. We also got to meet people from Circle K. We all bonded with each other, and became closer with the Kiwanis Family. It really made us appreciate Key Club even more. verall, this event was a complete success, and I wouldn t want to have it any other way. Taylor Kiehm, D fficer tek1901 iolani.org This event has been in the works since May because it was going to be held during our RTC in September. The R18 team came up with a variety of games and activities for our members to raise money for PTP. About a month was spent finali ing the details such as who would take care of materials, how much would tickets cost, and what foods would be sold. An incentive was agreed upon by the T s to encourage participants to donate and participate. If Region 1 surpassed 00 to donate to PTP, they would be able to throw water balloons at their respective ieutenant overnor. Keith Cachola, D K T d k.cnhkc.ltg gmail.com

Amanda Lurey Oak Park, D42E

This year, the theme of Region Training Conference was RaveTC and I can genuinely say that the event lived up to the name. As a spirit coordinator, it was amazing to see not just our division, but our entire region, consolidate and get hyped together. Throughout the day we asked random groups how they felt and heard the unique remixes of each division. At lunch, there was a huge game of Ninja with mainly Division 29 GrifďŹ ns and a few of us Division 42 East Narwhals that got pretty intense and for about an hour Kyle Yasui, another Spirit Coordinator, led a call and response cheer circle for primarily narwhals but some Division 24 Zebras joined too after a bit. After lunch, I was chosen for Division 42 East to help decorate our Kiwanis advisor in an eccentric and entertaining fashion with tissue paper, paper plates, markers, and ribbon. I also gave her practically every piece of spirit gear that I was wearing that I could take off such as bandanas, my Yuda Band, and other bracelets. Like any other Key Club event, RaveTC left me with new memories, cheeks burning from the sheer amount of laughter and smiling that I endured throughout the day, and practically no voice. It is now a few days later as I am writing this and I still have no voice, but it’s absolutely worth it for the proper experience of Key Club Region Training Conference.

by Jenni Heng, Sato, D13S On Sunday, October 1st, ninjas woke up bright and early to volunteer at the Aloha Run with Division 13 North and Division 30 South. At the run, volunteers prepared good bags, snacks, medals and more as participants began walking in. When the runners began to cross the finish line, others members helped keep track of their times. Other key clubbers cheered them on as they received their medals. Members then passed out snacks and water to participants. Clubbers additionally helped with clean up as the Aloha Run came to a close.

The first spirit session was very well-organized. I liked the idea where we’d rotate spirit leaders and learn a different cheer every time; this saved a lot of time. I am currently in my second year of Key Club, but I’m ready to scream my lungs out for the spirit stick this year, especially when I feel super confident with my cheers. Throughout this event, I’ve met and reunited with many. I look forward to the next Division spirit session!

Romina Castillo Kauai, D22M

On September 23rd, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Kauai and Kapa‘a High Key Clubbers joined forces to participate in the Kiwanis Car Wash. Kiwanis Car Wash is held as a yearly event to help raise money for scholarships for our Key Clubbers, and people who get their cars washed could donate any amount. As a Key Clubber at Kauai High, I had a very fantastic time washing cars and interacting with the Kapa‘a High Key Clubbers. To keep everyone’s energy up on this long day, we all learned the “How do you feel?” cheer and remix. After keeping track of the number of cars that were washed and dried this time, we broke our record with a little over ninety cars. I stayed for all three shifts and was exhausted halfway, but overall it was a great day.

by Neil Bongolan, NCTA, D28W The Lucky Duck service event was a great event for everyone to attend as we got to socialize and volunteer to set up along with have the ducks sailing in the pond! The experience was fantastic as we were able to help everyone that was there for the great cause. It was all composed together as it was fun for everyone socially and an experience that was unforgettable.

by Adrian Sayas, NCTA, D28W Lucky Duck was an overall great experience. What I did for the most part was help setup and cleanup. Although there wasn’t much for me to do during the event, I still got to socialize with people that I had never met before as well as have fun with my friends!

by Franz Eugenio, Golden Valley, D16N On September 23, Division 16 North participated in Santa Clarita’s River Cleanup and Environmental Expo. During this time, people were able to help clean the Santa Clarita River from 8:00 am to 11:00am. People from Golden Valley, West Ranch, Saugus, Hart, and Valencia came to participate in this annual event. With so many people, Key Club was not even a small portion of people in this massive event. Families, clubs, and many youth groups joined in to help clean the river. Many participated in order to preserve our dried river. The reason being is that many want to preserve the natural beauty of the once filled river. Although it may not have water like other rivers, this river has provided us a lot and in order to show thanks people all over Santa Clarita join to clean up the trash that is left behind. Key Club participated in this event to not only clean up the river, but to show an example to the community around us. We are able to show the community that we as a society should preserve our environment. Overall the River Cleanup and Environmental Expo that the City of Santa Clarita created was a success.

D15N DIVISION COUNCIL MEETING by Melanie Viernes, Etiwanda, D15N

The monthly Division Council Meeting (DCM) for September was held on Friday, September 29th of 2017. For this DCM, it lasted from 4:30 to 7:00pm, and the theme was a night market, so our club was selling lemonade and spam masubi. Before the night market began, we started off with an icebreaker called Soul Mate, and one of the newest members from another school volunteered, and one of our returning members was his soul mate. Next, we eased our way into the meeting by starting off with the Pledge of Allegiance, followed by the Key Club Pledge. After both pledges, our Lieutenant Governor Allie, invited the first school to present roll call, and the next, and so on and so forth. Right after roll call, Allie announced monthly awards to the clubs the earned them. Our club was awarded with “Club of the Month” and “2nd Place in G-Points” for all our hard work. Allie then adjourned the meeting after delivering all the awards, and three of the most spirited members of our division came up and taught the new members the “how do you feel” cheer, along with the new remix. The night market began around 6:00pm, and our club sold out of lemonade and the spam masubi. We made a little over $200, some of it going to PTP, and some going towards our club. I would definitely recommend members to go to DCMs because the bonding with other members outside our own club helps new members get more acquainted with the returning members, officers, and Key Club in general.

Oakmont Key Club makes strides against Alzheimer’s at the 2017 annual Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Oakmont Key Clubbers took on many service roles at this event, including set up, sign-waving, t-shirt distributing, and information directing. volunteers at the alzheimer’s association woke up bright and early to prepare for set up at Capitol park where the event is held, starting at 6:30 (3 hours before the walk) and began sign waving, t-shirt distributing, and information directing at 7:30 as people began arriving. Sign wavers were stationed across the vicinity of the park while t-shirt distributors and information directors greeted participants and gave them their complimentary t-shirts and Alzheimer’s association information. Key clubbers worked hard throughout the cold morning and into a brighter day as they worked all across capitol park, helping hundreds of walk participants prepare for this fun event.

Key Club has partnered with the March of Dimes for decades to give every baby a healthy start. Key Club members raise thousands of dollars annually through various programs. Since 1994, Key Club has been Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF and over the years has raised nearly $5 million for iodine deficiency programs worldwide and HIV and AIDS programs in Kenya and Swaziland. Now it’s helping The Eliminate Project. Since 2014 Key Club International has been partnering with the Thirst Project during the Month of March to participate in the “Dirty Little Secret” campaign. 748 Million people on our planet do not have access to safe, clean drinking water. Key Club members fill up a water bottle with dirty water and carry the bottle around all month. When people ask why, Key Club members share the secret.

DIVISION RECOGNITION 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!

SEPTEMBER 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!
