HAPPY

HOLIDAYS

It’s ice to meet you!

We are well over halfway through the term, so congratulations on making it this far! It has sure been a wild journey, with so much going on lately. From club rush to Fall Rally, we’ve had so much going on. Beyond Key Club, I hope you all have gotten plenty of rest during your Thanksgiving break. To seniors, college application season is officially over! You’ve made it through the toughest part of your year, so it’s only smooth sailing from here. Keep doing what you’re doing for the rest of the year and don’t let senioritis get to you. Attending class and maintaining your grades is still important! Today is December 1st, meaning that conclave season is already here! I hope you potential candidates learned a lot at your Candidate Training Conferences as you prepare for conclave. Good luck! I hope you all enjoy a safe and fun holiday season with your loved ones. I am so thankful I get to serve as your DNE. Thanks for reading another issue. I hope you enjoy!

Welcome to the December issue of the Bee Times! Can you believe that we are already halfway through the Key Club term?! It’s definitely been a wild journey for me this far, and I hope it has been meaningful to you as well. As Fall Rally and Region Training Conferences conclude, I hope you’ve made some new friends and attended new service events. Keep attending DCMs, going to service events and fundraisers, and look forward to District Convention on March 13-15th, 2020! As we are this far into the term, I just wanted to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for doing an absolutely amazing job this year with everything you do! Your collective effort in spirit training, service projects, charity fundraisers, and division/club event attendance has been phenomenal. You are all leaders within your community and give yourselves a pat on the back doing all these great things! Lastly, if you’ve enjoyed everything so far, you will definitely enjoy District Convention (DCON) this year! Please let your home club officers and/or Lieutenant Governor know as soon as possible if you are interested in attending DCON! If you have any logistical or financial concerns, your officers and Lieutenant Governors are there to help you! I look forward to seeing you all there! As always, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns about anything, please feel free to contact me! Thank you for reading! YOURS IN SERVICE, CHUOFAN YU, DISTRICT GOVERNOR

Welcome to the month of December! It is truly a bittersweet feeling in knowing that we have reached the end of 2019, and I am truly thankful to serve with you this far into the term. Take a time to reflect upon all of your goals from the beginning of 2019 and the 2019-2020 Key Club administrative year. Whether or not you’ve met them at this point, continue to have these goals in mind during this final month of the term. You got this! Now that it is December 1, this means that we have met the on-time dues payment deadline. Remember that dues payments occur year-round, meaning that clubs can submit one payment of dues, then pay additional ones later on in the year. I would like to also thank you all for a wonderful Fall Rally North/South experience this term. Because of your initiatives to raise funds for the Pediatric Trauma Program (PTP), we are very close to meeting our $260,000 goal. Whether or not you celebrate the holidays, I hope you are all blessed with many gifts, most importantly the gift of service. Thank you for continuing to inspire me with all of your efforts to serve your homes, schools, and communities, and I am immensely excited to see our progress as a district in the upcoming months. Have a great December! YOURS IN SERVICE, LAWRENCE GUITTAP, DISTRICT SECRETARY


Can you believe that it’s already the final month of 2019? Make sure you all keep warm as the Winter Season starts. As the year comes to a close, let’s be sure to make the most of it. Today was the last day to submit dues on time. If the club you serve have submitted dues already, congratulations and thank you for all of your hard work. If the club you serve has not, don’t worry just yet. It is imperative that you reach out to your Lieutenant Governor or me to receive help on submitting dues before February 1st. That is when all delinquent clubs will be marked as suspended. Please don’t forget that I am always here to assist you. I hope everyone has enjoyed their experience at Fall Rally North and South. Thank you for all the hard work you’ve put towards fundraising for the Pediatric Trauma Program. Although Fall Rally is over, we still have more fundraising to do. Please continue working with the clubs you serve so we can reach our goal by District Convention. With December here, we have many Conclaves and DOCTC approaching. I have full faith in every single one of you. Thank you for your courage and dedication to service. It is not easy running for office. If you have any questions about anything, please feel free to reach out to me. I would be happy to help you out. I hope to see you all very soon.

I hope the beginning of your holiday season has gone well! I’ve heard great things about Fall Rally North and South and the incredible fundraising you’ve done for the Pediatric Trauma Program. I’ve personally been pretty busy with school, college applications, and preparing for the November International Board meeting, including grading YOF applications for the International Opportunities Committee and working on a strategic plan for Key Club International. Additionally, I have been working closely with the Thirst Project on the 2020 Thirsty 30 campaign and on creating resources for Walks for Waters in divisions and districts. Remember to turn in your dues by December 1 and your Trick or Treat for UNICEF money by December 31! The holiday season gets busy, so the sooner, the better. Also, keep in mind that International Convention will be held in San Francisco in July of next year. Start fundraising to go now!

SESSION 4


I attended my first fall rally in 2016 not knowing what magnitude this event would have on me four years later. Serving as lieutenant governor my senior year and standing on that stage in front of the 300+ members that I served cheering me on, was truly an unforgettable experience. I am so proud to be serving such an amazing division who has worked tirelessly over the past few months to prepare for this event. Apart from winning the spirit stick for two years in a row, we were able to raise a Division 13 South record-breaking $5,025 for the Pediatric Trauma Program. Seeing the amount of passion, excitement, and overall happiness on the faces of the members that I serve ignited a feeling

in me that is indescribable. Being able to witness members from all over the California-Nevada-Hawaii district come together in camaraderie truly made all the efforts of the District Board Members’ worth it. Seeing something that we planned, inspire and create memories for so many people was truly impactful to us. I am amazed by the unity and inclusiveness that I was able to see within the members of CNH at this year’s Fall Rally. I cannot wait to experience this all over again at District Convention 2019...Last fall rally...best fall rally!

Thank you for your continuous dedication to your homes, schools, and communities bees! I know that you don’t hear this enough, but I genuinely appreciate each and every one of you for your unwavering dedication to Key Club. MEMBER RECOGNITION CHAIR QUEENIE LAMB


DIVISION 31, KAYLAH NGUYEN On Saturday, November 2nd, Helix Key Club held an bike event that allowed for kids to understand how to safely cross an intersection when they are on a bike. However, this wasn’t the only thing they learned. There were multiple sections where kids moved from one to another. After completing all these sections and getting their cards marked off my the volunteers, they were given a certificate. During this event, it was really nice getting to interact with kids and their parents. There was food offered and a whole coloring booth for kids to come and rest after a long time under the sun. I can’t wait to attend this event next year.

FALL RALLY SOUTH, DIVISION 42 EAST, MINDY NGUYEN Fall Rally South 2019 was an unforgettable experience for members of Royal High School in Division 42 East. For a school that already gives 110% in the stands of every football game, this event takes spirit to a whole new world. Although our division did not win the spirit stick, it was truly an amazing moment to hear other division’s Tik Tok cheers and pump cheers as they allowed me to feel more connected in the fundraising that we do. $3000 for the Pediatric Trauma Program by the Rally never felt as such

a great accomplishment until it was used to bid for our favorite district board members and district executives. From dawn till daybreak, many of my friends were enthralled to meet so many new members across hundreds of cities and compete in endless spirit battles. Next year, I am more excited to promote this event to our members and increase the impact Royal makes in the CNH District in building and protecting our homes, schools, and communities.

KIHEI ELEMENTARY SCHOOL HARVEST FESTIVAL On Saturday, October 19, three individuals represented Maui High Key Club at the Kihei Elementary School’s Harvest Festival. These Key Clubbers were Dyllis Agunoy, Jonathan Placentia, and Secretary Leanne Osorno. These sophomores helped to set up the event and ensure everything went according to plan. Dyllis helped to set up tables and chairs for the students who were eating some sweet treats. Jonathan blew up balloons, helped to decorate, and supervised all of the elementary students. At the event, there was an obstacle course. Jonathan watched all of the kids pass through the challenge and enforced safety rules. Officer Leanne guided our fresh members throughout the event while also volunteering herself. Leanne said that her favorite part of the festival was seeing all of the cute children! She recalled them to be so kind to her. Overall, our three members had a great time and represented Maui High well!


VETERAN’S DAY CARD MAKING, DIVISION 7 NORTH

On November 6th, our members took part in the Veteran’s Day Card making. Members personally decorated cards and wrote heartfelt notes to be donated to local veterans. With the help of our bees, we ended up making over 100 cards!
