Welcome from the LTG

Volume 1 Issue 1

In this Issue!

Welcome from LTG.....1 To my fellow Kiwanis family member, th When I joined Key Club in the 9 grade, I was clueless of what to expect. With only a negligible Club of the Month......2 amount of prior knowledge of what Key Club was, I was skeptical of its benefits. However, after closely 3 years of being part of the Key Club Ohana, I have experience the enjoyment of servitude but also the love from my fellow Service Highlights.....3-4 Key Clubbers. Now, I am proud to announce that I will be serving as the Division 05 Lieutenant Governor for the 2012-2013 school year. With this opportunity, I look forward to serving my division and providing a year of Upcoming Events........5 excitement and accomplishment. Calendar......................5 I was born on October 4, 1995 in the city of San Francisco. Subsequently, I moved to San Jose and finally to Fresno where I currently live. I have lived here for 10 years and enjoyed a quiet life intrinsic to a suburban area. Since elementary school, I have strived to be a strong and well-rounded individual with the support from my family. I am an AP/Honor student that is a member of CSF, National Honor Society, Youth Group Praise Band, Tennis, and of course Key Club. In addition, I have played the piano for 11 years and the Find us on the Web! cello for 8 years. But let’s not judge a book by its cover. Although I may seem to be the typical bookworm, my personality tells a different story. With my wild attitude and my thirst for excitement, I have the propensity to Facebook: portray erratic behavior especially during times when there is a call for spirit. In addition, I have the tendency to https://www.facebook.com/grou be random and go off on tangents in addition to enjoying long walks on the beach and socializing with friends. ps/15489488419/ However, if you want to get to know me better, do not hesitate to approach me. During my years in Key Club, I have developed substantially as an individual. Year after year, I found myself progressively abiding by the Key Club Motto “Caring- Our way of life.” By giving back to the community Twitter: @D05_Trojans and using my body as an instrument to construct positive impacts in my community, I realized the true value of Key Club- to build strong leaders that can act as stewards of the community. As the new Lieutenant Governor, I will strive to strengthen the cohesion and improve the efficacy of Division 05 in order to become a more active Designs for the division t-shirts, division than we already are. This way, more students can be involved and have more opportunities to realize sweaters, and lanyards are being what I realized as a member of Key Club.

Although leaders may play an important role in the prosperity of Key Club, the members are the most on, and the winners will receive important people as they are the one to enact changes and provide the organization strength.

Route to Club of the Month Even though the school year was coming to an end, the Clovis West Key Club kept up with their perseverance. The club members volunteered more than thirty hours of their time for both Relay For Life and Memorial Day Run. In addition, thanks to their fastidious secretary, Julieanne Nguyen, their MRF's were sent in on time with pinpoint accuracy. As a result, the Clovis West Key Club was awarded with Club of the Month.

CLUB SERVICE HIGHLIGHTS BUCHANAN HIGH For the last few months of the school year, Buchanan Key Club took on a huge project, collecting items to make care packages to send to the troops still overseas. Coming from a school where several alumni have died serving overseas, we felt amazing to see our project take off and to see the success. Our Members create cards and box up the collected club was able to fill five big boxes with things, such as items to be sent to troops overseas. toiletries, candy, jerky, and more. We even had a packaging party at an officer’s house where we made over 20 cards and packaged all the items into boxes. After spending months on this project, we are excited to do more with it in the future.

SERVICE Written by Tracy Liu, Buchanan Key Club Vice President

CLOVIS WEST HIGH Some of the cards that the Buchanan Last month, the Clovis West Key club members Key Club created. came out during all hours of the day for an event called “Relay For Life.” This event is a fundraiser run by the American Cancer Society, however what is so unique about this fundraiser is that it lasts an entire twenty-four hours. This event not only raises funds for cancer research, it celebrates survivors and encourages those still fighting. Many key clubbers sacrificed two days of their weekend and came out to the local junior high school to help set up for the event as well as clean up after.

CLUB SERVICE HIGHLIGHTS (cont.) EDISON HIGH The date was June 9th. The scene was a run-down camp near Shaver Lake. Camp ElO-Win was in desperate need of repair. The cabins were being taken over by spiders, the roof tiling was being devoured by insects, cracks covered the walls, and dirt was in abundant supply. It looked like a job for the Edison High Key Clubbers. As always, these community service dynamos were up to the challenge. Power cleaners and caulking guns in hand, they went to work repairing good ol’ Camp El-O-Win. “It was hard work, but it felt good to help out,” says member Valentina Fontes. She, along with three other valiant members of the Edison High Key Club worked from the early hours of the morning ‘til the late afternoon to ensure El-O-Win would be habitable by summer. “It’s really cool to be able to help fix up a camp I’ve been going to for years,” says Hailey Stinecipher, club vice president. Thanks to their hard work, El-O-Win will be in tip-top shape for the Girl Scouts like Hailey who use this camp every summer. By the end of the afternoon, Camp El-O-Win was all systems go for summer. Cabins (practically) spider-free, roofs repaired, cracks filled, and rooms dusted until they shone. “All in a day’s work,” jokes Kendra Quinlan, club president, as she dusts her hands off on her jeans. And for the members of Edison High’s Key Club, it was. Written by: Alexandra Bordona, Edison Key Club News Editor
