With less than two months left until Fall Rally, what are you doing to get your club hyped up? Be sure to start selling tickets and planning out transportation, the logistics, and who will be helping out! Be sure to contact your club officers soon to ask about buying tickets! I also hope to see everyone attend RawrTC on October 13th at Cuyamaca College! If there’s any questions about it, feel free to ask me or your division assistant! I hope to see over 100 Hippos there so we can claim that spirit trophy back from the Jellys!
I hope everyone continues to work hard as the school year comes along! I’m proud of the amount of service we’ve put in to our communities so far, so let’s continue to provide even more!
Anthony’s Back to School Tips:
- Don’t procrastinate! Be sure not to wait until the last minute to do your assignments! - Keep track of ALL your dates! Have a planner, calendar, or even a notebook to keep track of all the important dates. (SAT, Service projects, etc.) - Take breaks! With the amount of homework you’ll be receiving (ESPECIALLY you upper classmen) be sure to take a break every once in a while! It’d be terrible to be EXHAUSTED before Fall Rally even arrives!
Challenge: How was the first meeting? Let me know :)

Past Events San Diego Heart Walk
4:00 A.M. During this time, nearly everyone, if not everyone, would be lying fast asleep within the comfortable confines of their own beds, tucked away and happily dreaming--with the ocassional nightmare. However, In the morning of September 15, Key Clubbers were waking up to the darkness that filled the early morning in order to ready themselves before heading down to Balboa Park to volunteer at the annual San Diego Heart Walk. Key Clubbers from all over San Diego--including D21, D31, and D37S-- attended the event. After checking in and dining on a delicious breakfast provided by the staff of the American Heart Association, Key Clubbers awaited their assignments as the sun slowly rose above the horizon and illuminated the once-black, morning sky. Once the event started, Key Clubbers disperesed throughout the area in order to perform their duties such as cheering on walkers/runners, replacing trash bags, and handing out water bottles at the finish line. Key Clubbers were left exhausted at the end of the event but nonetheless happy for their contribution to a worthy cause.

Past Events On September 9th, one of the first back-to-school service events was on its way at Scripps Park: the 82nd annual Rough Water Swim. Working alongside the Kiwanis of La Jolla, UCSD's Circle K and D21's LTG, Anthony To, La Jolla High School Key Club worked to ease the tension of the competitive swimmers. Volunteers marked numbers, registered competitors, took off tags and sold food to participants and swimmers. With sunburns at the end of the day, volunteers had a blast helping out everyone from 9 year olds to elders. The money from sales and registration goes back to the community through the Kiwanis of La Jolla. Article written by

Letter from the Editor Letter from the Editor Hello everybody. I hope all of you had a wonderful summer. The new school year has begun and the homework keeps piling on, but now is not a time to procrastinate and fall behind. No matter the workload, you can always finish it all if you plan out your schedule on which assignment to do and when to do it and if you take time off your breaks in order to get a little head start on your homework before you even get home. However, don’t overwork yourself. Sometimes it’s better to take a break rather than continue working for a long time. Be sure you don’t miss out on attending the various service events that are just around the corner---especially RawrTC. The school year has just begun, but Key Club is just getting started. Big events such Fall Rally and DCON may be months away, but it’ll come before you know it. I hope you all do well this school year and enjoy it as much as possible. Sincerely,
Travis Chang D21 Tech Editor 2012-2013
