message from your lieutenant governor Hello Key Clubbers of Division 05 South! My name is Tina Saensombath, I am junior attending Edison high School, and I’ve been in Key Club for 3 years. First of, I would like to say that it is such a great honor for me to serve as your Lieutenant Governor. In my term, I have many plans that we all will work together to lead our division to the next level. I plan to work with all club officers and assist them by enhancing their skills to serve their duties that they have committed to, and of course, with their best abilities. As the first LTG of Division 05 South, I hope to create many legacies and miracles within the division. My greatest desire is for our division to rise above and beyond with our anticipation for service. With that, I wish for everyone to gain the rewarding experience of being a Key Clubber by making lasting memories and friendships throughout this year. Together, I anticipate for us to have an unforgettable time serving our home, school, and community. This will be a great year!

division’s news On April 12th, 2013, Division 05 Trojans held the joint Division Council Meeting (DCM)/Banquet between the new realigned Divisions (D05 South and D05 North) of the 2013-2014 Key Club year at Break the Barriers starting from 6:00pm to 11:00pm. This was the beginning task for Eric Kor and Tina Saensombath serving a new Lieutenant Governor for their divisions. The DCM started with both Lieutenant Governors relaying important information regarding the Division news to the club members. When the DCM was over, it was time for dinner and for the banquet to start. The Immediate Past LTG Eugene Park took over the microphone and that was time for the end of the year awards ceremony. Many clubs and members received many awards, whether they were District or Division awards. And before this ceremony was over, everyone got a chance to see the video clip that the Division’s EAs had put together with pictures from the beginning of 2012-2013 term until now. It was clear that everyone was tearing up…with joy of how much we have done as one single division. Before the clock hit 11:00pm, the remaining attendees enjoyed themselves with some social time and even hit the dance floor that the banquet committee had put together. Many new friendships were built along with unforgettable memories. To sum it all up, the End of the Year DCM/Banquet for Division 05 Trojans was A SUCCESS!

very own first step

division’s news May 8th, 2013, Lieutenant Governor Tina Saensombath held her very first solo DCM at Edison High School from 6:00pm-7:00pm. Many important topics were discussed, such as summer fundraiser for PTP, Spirit Gear Committee, and MRFs from each club. Due to AP testing during that week, the DCM was quick and straight to the point. Overall, it was successful, although the meeting wasn’t a full house.

As the year progress, many clubs are becoming easier to reach and contact. Many secretaries have received the MRF Manual packet and have been learning on how to complete the MRF. This issue will be taken care of ASAP when they all attend OTC in June 15th. More MRFs have been received and it is showing a fantastic sign that D05 South will be improving in many ways.

June DCM: June 12th at Edison! DON’T MISS OUT! We will be discussing important events and projects!

BEE a hero!

the eliminate project What if your Mother’s Day Gift could save a child’s life?

The Eliminate Week was May 6th10th , what if you could save a baby’s life? The Eliminate project is a program that works with Kiwanis and Unicef to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT). MNT is a horrible disease that kills a baby in every nine minutes, that's 60,000 babies every year who will never grow up, make their mothers laugh, play with friends or dream about the future. Did you donate? By only $1.80, you could make a mother happy by saving her baby, and make a difference for Mother’s Day. With your donation, YOU will give the poorest families the chance to lead the healthy lives they deserve. YOU can make a difference in this world.

Put a smile on a mother’s face

I Pledge on my honor, to uphold the objects of Key Club International; to build my home, school, and community, to serve my nation and God, and to combat all forces which tend to undermine these institutions.
