All the money from Six Flags and the money that was auctioned off goes towards Pediatric Trauma Program (PTP).

My experience at FRN was ineffable. When I first attended, I not highly educated what KEY Club was exactly about. I always thought FRN was just a small gathering with people do go on rides and befriend them. I was definitely wrong. I was in awe seeing the amount of people I saw at FRN. Everyone was so kind, friendly and enthusiastic. I do not regret attending FRN because this event awakened me to see KEY Club on another level. From “How do you feel?” to “Putting some booty in it,” I am definitely ready to feel the GOLDEN energy and hot weather that FRN always brings. I really do hope that everyone will be able to attend this amazing event. If you love making new friends, enthusiasm, KEY Club, people, roller coaster, saving lives, and hanging out, then this is definitely the even for you to attend! - Tricia Tran Piner High School

I can't wait to go to Fall Rally because last year I heard it was a lot of fun. The spirit is really high and every division is there. It seems like a great way to meet people all while having fun. I can't wait to show off D32 spirit! - McKenzie Martin Rancho Cotate High School After hearing all the golden stories from my friends, I am so excited to attend Fall Rally North for the first time. I’m really looking forward to meeting my fellow key clubbers and seeing all the key club spirit. I can’t wait to attend because I am sure it will BEE just as amazing as I have heard. I hope to see my fellow dinosaurs there. - Karissa Mills Piner High School Fall Rally was amazing the year I went! I've never seen anything like it. The spirit there was so insane it made everything so much fun. I can't wait to go again. - Jinny Tran Santa Rosa High School Fall Rally was an exciting event. I have never experienced any event with so many smiling and spirited teenagers. This is something a Key Clubber can't miss and will probably regret not going to. Key Clubbers will see how amazing Key Club is and how much we contribute to the community. You will be full of energy and dino-pride after this. - Steffanie Tran Piner High School Even though I don’t enjoy roller coasters, attending the rally was great. I did not expect to see so much spirit and excitement, but when I did it was incredible. Everyone was full of energy, and the number of Key Clubbers there was amazing. -Vicky Nguyen Piner High School Fall Rally was the highlight of my Key Club adventure last year. Thousands of Key Clubbers all with such amazing spirit make you feel part of something huge. I learned how key club is not just some school cub; it is so much bigger. I loved the rally and seeing all the other divisions decked out in their gear. I hope this year we can make D32 stand out in the crowd with our gear and spirit! -Destiny Martin Piner High School

On Saturday, July 20th, our Division 32 Key Clubs came together in Fort Bragg to do a beach Clean-up. For most of us, it was a pretty long drive to Pudding Creek Beach where we assisted with the clean-up. When we got there it was surprisingly not as dirty as we thought, but looks can be deceiving. We all split into groups, grabbed a pair of gloves and a garbage bag and set off to work. Everyone seemed to be having a good time. It was a great day for being at the beach. It only took us about an hour to get the beach clean. It was good to know that not a lot of people littered at that beach. When we were all done we all had a picnic and we all had a great time. All in all, it was a great day at the beach, We cleaned up all the garbage so that others could enjoy a more beautiful environment, and we all had fun doing it. Plus, it was nice to bond with other Key Clubbers from our division. ~Alayna Lorence

Pediatric Trauma Program What It Is The Pediatric Trauma Program helps to train pediatric doctors, nurses, and first responders, purchase medical supplies and equipment, and create outreach programs to educate the public on preventative and safety measures. PTP exists because accidental injury is the #1 cause of death in children under the age of 14 in the U.S., even though 90% of these injuries can be prevented. Many of these injuries are caused by lack of proper safety equipment or lack of education about child safety. The Pediatric Trauma Program works with hospitals around the district to change these statistics. Our division’s nearest PTP hospital is the Oakland Children’s Hospital and Research Center.

How We Help Our district has committed to raising $150,000 for PTP. Fall Rally is one of the biggest PTP fundraisers of the year. Our division is asking that ALL

CLUBS THAT ATTEND FALL RALLY BRING AT LEAST $150 FOR PTP to help us reach our goal. Besides just fundraising, Key Clubbers can also help by spreading awareness and educating the public about issues related to pediatric trauma. Going into Kindergarten classes to teach bike or playground safety are great ways to get involved with PTP. Our goal is to lower the occurrence of pediatric injury through education and resources.

Member Recruitment The KEY to Key Club

As fall rolls around, it brings many things with it: the start of school, the changing of leaves, and a new Key Club season! This means that a whole new class of potential Key Clubbers is ready to be informed, inspired, and recruited—by YOU! These students may never have even heard of our club and the amazing work we do, so it’s your job to fix that! You can recruit new members in many ways. Most schools have a Club Day, where your club can set up a booth and charmingly persuade passing students that Key Club is the organization for them by talking about all of the possibilities a future with Key Club holds. You can also talk to the students in your classes about joining, and bring it up in conversations. Your club can even talk to your school about making announcements or hanging flyers encouraging students to become members. Whatever you do, just get the word out about how wonderful our golden club is, and the future dinos will surely come swiftly to attention! Good luck out there, Key Clubbers! ~Raven Quesenberry Division Spirit Coordinator

Leadership Opportunities Membership Orientation

Want to Learn More About Key Club? Membership orientations and conferences are a golden opportunity to get to know Key Clubbers, learn about the ohana we have in the Cali-Nev-Ha district, and come together to celebrate our passion for service. Membership Orientations are held at the beginning of the new year to Welcome new Key Clubbers into a world of compassion and service.

Want to Hold a Membership Orientation? Things to Think About: 

What to Mention: Key Club not only is a way to earn copious amounts of service hours, it is an opportunity to become involved with the community.

 Personal Experiences: How have your experiences shaped who you are today through Key Club? Tell these to your members, this is what keeps them coming back.  The Event Itself: Where should you hold it? A classroom during lunch, a friend’s house, a local rec center are great ideas. Familiarize the structure of meetings with the new members, as well as reciting the pledges and announcing upcoming service opportunities.  Extras: Be sure to bring food, have lots of icebreakers planned, and paper to write down golden ideas for the upcoming year!
