Dear Key Clubbers,
Page 1: A Letter from the Bulletin Editor
Hello Everyone! Time surely does go by pretty fast, huh? We’ve already almost completed a months worth full of school! That’s incredibly insane! But what’s even more insane is knowing how great our Key Club year is running so far! From all the way back to the Freshman BBQ, the First meeting, and already completing a couple of service events, we’ve accomplished a great amount with lots more to come! (The next issue will be filled!) The experience so far has been amazing! The opportunity to meet all the new people entering the world of Key Club. Being able to introduce ourselves personally and getting a great sense of inclusiveness throughout the club. Educating all the Key Clubbers about service and our “cheerful” ways. Now continuing on to the newsletters, in this months issue of “The Cougar Claw”, we will be discussing the Freshman BBQ, Member of the Months, the first Key Club meeting, Ironman 2012, Girl Scout World of Girls, a Special Thank You, and more information regarding service events! Hopefully as the year progresses, things grow to be even more amazing! I’m definitely anticipating the future issues! I hope you all enjoy this months issue!
Sincerely, Tiffanie Ignacio Coronado KC Bulletin Editor

The Freshman BBQ
Location: Coronado High Schoo Schooll Date: Thursday; August 23, 2012 How was exposing Key Club during the Freshman BBQ?
“The Freshman BBQ held at Coronado High School, the Thursday before school started, pumped up the entire club. Though the heat made the day tedious, it was worth it. Seeing the freshman's sign up was enjoyable. Especially the ones that just came up and signed without hesitating! It was great to see how excited they were for our first meeting. Including the year filled with service events. I loved seeing all the new faces, and thought about how they're going to become the future of this club. Hopefully, they will grow to love the Key Club, and prosper with it.”
-Brenda Tran Junior Representative
“The Freshman Barbeque was on August 23 at Coronado High School.
I walked into the courtyard that day with a huge sense of déjà vu and dread of the incoming school year. I walked over to the Key Club table, and everyone set up a large poster board, various pamphlets and pictures, and a computer playing a video. We then stood there or walked around with a sign talking to incoming freshman about joining Key Club. The sun beat down, and I ended up drinking at least three bottles of water and eating a hotdog. I would walk up to people and say, “Are you interested in Key Club?’. A lot of times people would walk away quickly pretending that they didn’t hear me, but the occasional person would ask what Key Club is. Then I would say, “Key Club is a student led service organization that works at various events throughout the community such as the FAAN Walk and the Ironman Triathlon.” They would then usually end up signing up on the interest sheet. By the end of it, there were over 90 people signed up. I felt very tired but also accomplished by the end of it. -Rachel
Oshiro Sophomore Representative
Member of the Month for August Monica Vineda; Sophomore “We would like to nominate Monica Venida for member of the month for August! Monica has been trying so hard for her hours all year long. She has been participating in Key Club since her freshman year of high school and has tried to go to every Key Club meeting on Tuesdays! She has also attended RTC, and service events such as Ironman and the 98.5 Summer Block Party! Monica is one of the most dedicated members of Coronado Key Club. She has tried her hardest to get a position on the Coronado Key Club board. Monica has tried to get a position on board. She has tried for sophomore representative and vice president. Though she was unable to get either position, she is so dedicated to participate in the club. Monica is excited to rejoin key club this year. And possibly during the next term be Secretary A for Coronado Key Club! We cannot wait to see what holds in Monica Venida's Key Club career!”

Coronado Key Club’s First Meeting Location: Coronado High Schoo Schooll Date: Tuesday; September 4, 2012 Time: 2:30 pm
How did Coronado KC’s first meeting go?
“The first Key Club Meeting was on September 4th at 2:30PM. I was fairly nervous due to the amount of people at the meeting. The board members and myself had worked very hard to make this meeting absolutely perfect. Room 200 was almost filled to the max, some were even on the floor due to the lack of seats. As we started the meeting, many new and old members were bursting with excitement. We had a few technical difficulties, but in the end we ran through the PowerPoint efficiently! Towards the end of the meeting many people were so pumped for Key Club! Some were even excited that they wanted to know more about being Freshman representative! I cannot wait to see what our new and old members will bring about this year! “
-Mari Pascual Coronado KC President
“The first key club meeting was great! Throughout the whole day, I was barely concentrated in my class. I was only looking forward to the first meeting. I was excited, because I knew that there would be a lot of members. During my freshman year, there were so many members that some of us had to sit on the floor! It was really nice to see so many eager and energetic faces at Key Club; some old members, and many new members. Teaching the new members about Key Club was also really fun, and I hope that they all some good information! I'm really looking forward to this new year and meeting new members! “
-Elaina Xie Coronado KC Vice President 2012 Ironman World Championships; Sunday, September 9th
“On Sunday, September 9th at the Multigenerational Center, Ironman World Championship of 2012 was held. Kicking off with Coronado KC’s first meeting last week, this was definitely a great starting event for all the new members this year! Though it was very hot out during this event, it was extremely satisfying being able to serve all of these incredible athletes! Since there were many of us who volunteered at this event, we were stationed as a Division at the bag section. The course of our day was spent retrieving the athletes desired numbered bag and then directing them off the bike section where they would retrieve their bikes. The beginning of the event was very easy and smooth, but as time kicked in, the amount of athletes came pouring in. Being able to talk to all of these amazing people and helping them was extremely satisfying. One of the most nicest people were met on this day. This would definitely be an event to remember with plenty more to come!”

Girl Scout World of Girls 100th Birthday Bash
Location: Cashman Center Date: Saturday; September 15, 2012 How was your experience at the Girl Scout 100th Birthday Bash?
“At the Girl Scouts World of Girls 100
Birthday Bash, my experience wasn’t like any other experience. From the moment I walked into the building until the moment I walked out, I had felt a huge difference on my part. When I got there, I didn’t have much to say except that I got lost. As the day finished up at the Girl Scouts event, I realized I helped people—I helped someone else, specifically young girls; all they saw was some girl in a green shirt helped them make crafts. What I saw and still continue to see is that I did a favor to someone; it wasn’t extremely as important as other things in life, but I made a difference, not a huge difference, but a difference. Working with everyone in Key Club was an enjoyable, unforgettable, and amazing.
-Kayla Arceo Coronado KC Freshman Member
“Volunteering at the Girl Scout’s 100th Birthday Bash was six hours well spent. Just being able to give back and help out an organization that inspires so many, felt fulfilling. I was able to meet new people and learn about many different things. I admire the Girl Scouts and their never-ending ambition. This event was definitely worth waking up early for. “
-Lauren Tsang Coronado KC Senior Member
