“ Today you are you, that is truer than true there is no one alive who is youer than you! ” - Dr. Seuss

THANK YOU ROBOTS While making this newsletter, I spent days on this page, thinking of how exactly I could sum up all of my feelings to describe how proud I am. It took maybe a week to finish all the other pages, but when I came to this page, I just stumbled. I didn’t know exactly how to get my feelings on paper, and I still really don’t, but here it goes! Four years ago, I attended my first Fall Rally north, I still remember everything about it, and I remember attending the rally and looking up on stage at all the people dressed in silly outfits, and I wondered, “Who are they?” Later, I found out that they were part of the District Board and I found out what a Lieutenant Governor and District Executives were. I was extremely inspired after finding out the amount of dedication and work these individuals put in making the world a better place. Never in my wildest dreams could I have thought that one day, I would have the golden opportunity of serving as your Lieutenant Governor and standing up on the similar stage as part of the “LegaBEEs.” Blue Robots, I want to thank you all, because you had trusted me to serve you on January 12, 2013, I was able to go through a life-changing journey, which I’m still on, serving as your LTG. It has made my life so much better and everyday I feel so thankful that I was given this opportunity. But all of this would be nothing without you. Robots, this year we were able to leave our own golden legacy of our own. We had the highest D14 member attendance at FRN with over 145 members, while I was on stage, I couldn’t stop smiling as I saw all of your beautiful faces screaming and cheering. On top of that, together we raised a total $1,570 for PTP which is an all-time D14 New Record! You are saving and bettering the lives of so many children! Even though we couldn’t break the Top 3 curse, the fact that we made top 3 in the spirit battle against divisions that were 2 times our size is an amazing feat and I am so proud of everything we have achieved!

CHALLENGE OF THE MONTH Give thanks to your favorite teacher and get a gift for them & take a picture! Submit your visuals to d14.cnhkc.ltg@gmail.c om by November 15!

Now that Fall Rally is over, we still have much more to look forward to! Candidate Training Conference for those who want to be LTG is coming up and DCON is only 160 days away! I can’t wait to see all the amazing accomplishments we will achieve in that time!

Let’s continue leaving our golden legacy!

Project Eliminate make a commitment to save at least 3 lives

The Eliminate Project is a project that the Kiwanis Family works on with UNICEF to work together to eliminate Maternal/Neonatal Tetanus (MNT) from the world. This is a deadly disease that kills 1 baby every 9 min., that’s a total of 160 deaths per day and it only takes $1.80 to help save a life. There are only 22 countries left with this terrible disease which is caused by unhygienic conditions. Let’s work together to help support our district goal of raising $500,000 by August 2015 and reach our division goal of $2000 for MNT by the end of November! Together we can save lives! Fun fact: MNT was recently eliminated in Sierra Leone & Gabon!

Show your K in every Way — Show people what Key Club is all about!




Spread the word by wearing Key Club gear and publicizing Key Club Week in local stores, your school Web site, community newspapers—even on the radio. Officially announce Key Club Week in your community with a proclamation and start doing more service to get Key Club recognized in your community!

Kudos to the Key players — Personally thank all the Key Club supporters you know—teachers, advisors and other Key players. Write thank-you notes, host an appreciation dinner or do something uniquely your own style to recognize the contributions of these special people.

Connect the Ks — Key Club is the largest high school service organization in the world and is a member of the Kiwanis family. Celebrate the entire family of Kiwanis by getting the whole gang involved. Connect with local Kiwanis, Circle K International, Builders, Kiwanis Kids or Aktion clubs and team up for a joint service project.

Bring a friend to Key Club — More members = more service. Increasing the amount of service Key Club performs increases the impact Key Club has on the world. Bring a friend, or two, or more to your next Key Club meeting.

Your way — This is your club’s chance to do its own thing and make its mark. Pick a project, plan a recruitment party or combine activities from the other Key Club Week days. Whatever idea you choose, take it and run with it.

Back to School Night by Mamunna Gorsi [Secretary]

Leis for Breast Cancer by Clarissa Gomez [VP]

As the school has started we have began our first fundraiser. On Wednesday, August 28, we had our Back to School Night in which we sold hot pizza and cold water to hungry parents, students and staff. Three students helped out for the setup and for the selling portion. Throughout the fundraiser it was a bonding time plus recruiting time with fellow classmates. This year the event was only 2 hours long and we were located in front of the English wing. To our hopes we had sold out all the pizza and only had a couple of water bottles left which was great news for us. We left with a great result and happy parents, students, and staff.

In honor of Pink October, Marysville Key Club made pink & white ribbon leis. Taking advantage of our day off from school, we had a two hour “Ribbon Marathon” where we showed newBEEs how to make ribbon leis and made tons of ribbon leis as well. We found ways to keep ourselves entertained, from playing Pandora music to just talking with each other. It was nice to be able to meet new Key Clubbers and make new friends. Lots of our attendees seemed to like the “Ribbon Marathon” and definitely seem willing to do another one sometime soon. We plan on selling these Pink October ribbon leis, along with our orange & black ribbon leis (for our school colors) at our Homecoming. Hopefully, lots of people will support us and we can come together for a great cause.

Riverbend Harvest Festival by Prabhjit Kaur [President]

On Wednesday, October 9th, River Valley Key Club started up its bimonthly program at Bridge Street Elementary school once again. This ongoing service event is designed to cater to kids from 1st to 5th grade at the elementary school by providing fun and nurturing activities during the school’s afterschool program. Key Clubbers took the time and effort to give up their 4th period class to volunteer at the school, helping kids draw pictures for upcoming Halloween and creating lifelong bonds with them. This service event has to be one of my favorite because of the amazing relationships you create with the little ones and the potential impact that you can have on their lives. Bridge Street never fails to put a smile on my face.

On October 25, 2013 from 4pm-9pm Yuba City High School Key Clubbers helped out at the Riverbend school festival, helping out at all the different booths and helping parents and children getting tickets and playing the games. There were different shifts throughout the day and many key clubbers gave winners prizes while cheering on other kids to support them at the different booths. The volunteers put smiles on the children's faces and assisted through the entire event. Your club isn’t featured? Make sure top send your visuals and articles to by the 15th of each month!
