'Tis the season to be jolly, and to reminisce. As the year of 2012 closes, we look back on a wonderful year. From beach clean-ups to Fall Rally cheers to funds raised for PTP, this year has definitely been one worthy of looking back at. As the months have passed, I have been so proud to serve as your lieutenant governor. Our division serves as one of the biggest in Cali-Nev-Ha, and our loud roars serve as proof that we're not only physically big, but generously. To all those who wake up at 6 am to attend charity runs or to those who have attended winter events to spread the spirit of giving, I'd like to thank each and every one of you. In this season of Christmas trees and snowflake cutouts (it's the closest Cali can get to snow!) I'd like to take this moment to remember those who have lost. The Connecticut elementary school shooting crippled many families this season, and I hope as Key Clubbers, we can show our support by continually working to make our communities a better place. Please keep each child's parents and family in your prayers. Hold your families tighter, be more grateful for every breath, and never forget to keep in mind that your service is important to all those who need a helping hand. Thank you for everything you have done, and happy holidays, white tigers. The truest gift does not come under a tree; the truest gift is serving you all. I hope to see you all at the Winter Chill! Jingle Bell Roars, Sharon Lee Division 16 Lieutenant Governor

division news Providence High Benefit Concert

Providence High School held the benefit concert on Dec. 7. Key Clubbers and high school students who wanted to share their talents attended the great event. Providence High School Key Club and Key Clubbers from other high schools in the division helped to raise money for the Eliminate Project and helped to save 149 lucky babies. “We had more people attend than what we were hoping for since it was our first time holding an event like this but we couldn't have been happier to have such a great response from people who wanted to support the cause. With the help of all our performers and attendees, Providence Key Club surpassed its goal for the night with the amount of money we hoped to raise and we can't wait to hold our next benefit concert,�

- Sam Granados, Providence High School Key Club President.

key club ctc On Dec. 1, Division 16 white tigers went to Rancho Cucamonga to attend the Candidate Training Conference (CTC) from 9 A.M. - 5 P.M. Key Clubbers from other divisions in the region also attended this informative and educational experience. CTC, a conference used to train candidates interesting in becoming future LTG of their division, received a lesson on what it means to be Lieutenant Governor. LTG candidates also posed questions and were able to speak to current LTGs from other divisions. Candidates were split up into small groups with selected LTGs assigned to speak to each one. The CTC also had a mini mock Conclave to prepare the Candidates.

CTC was an absolutely amazing experience. It was the first time that I was able to gather with so many different key clubbers and really feel the influence of key club outside just my own school. I learned how to better serve my home club and I made a lot of friends as well.

− Candace Kim, Division 16 Spirit Chair

Hogan Tran, Division 16 Executive Assistant −

CTC was the one of the most amazing Key Club experiences I have ever had. CTC was where I honestly got closer to LTGs & Key Clubbers that were present and learned much about the duties and responsibilities that a Lieutenant Governor is presented with. It's another memory in my book of unforgettable memories! I love my Key Club Ohana! <3

The current Lieutenant Governors told us what it's like to be LTG., what responsibilities come with the position and what the benefits are. At CTC, CTC taught me a lot, it taught me how to be a leader, and it convinced me that I will definitely bee running to bee your Division 16 Lieutenant Governor for next year. It was an incredible experience and I would not trade it for the world! (:

Spirit Battles, Free Hugs, & Face Paint

november10 Fall Rally was the calling to Key Clubbers from divisions all over the region - Nevada, California, and Hawaii. The doors to Six Flags Magic Mountain opened at 9:00 A.M. and Key Clubbers painted in their division colors invaded the park, bringing their Key Club spirit with them. “How do you feel?” cheers and remixes were shouted and heard across the park. Key Clubbers embraced each other with family love and “free hugs.” Division 16 White Tigers came and proudly represented the division, roaring loud with white and black stripes on their faces and arms.

I'm so glad that I spent my last Fall Rally South surrounded by my fellow white tigers. Even though our ROAR wasn't as big as it could have been, the only way from here is up! To those who have yet to experience a Fall Rally: when you lose your voice and are sore for the next week after, you know you've had a good time.

-Paolo Esguerra, Division 16 Spirit Chair
