Hello D23’s MAGICAL members! I have said several times that communication is KEY in Key Club! Well, it is! I have sent out emails begging for club quotes, pictures, news, etc. No longer do you need to dread those emails. As long as your secretary sends in the MRF with a club snap shot attached, your school’s Key Club will fill up some white space (empty space). Is there a catch, you ask. No there is no catch what so ever! However, if you have a dazzling club picture that some or all of the members DOING SOMETHING ACTIVE (picking up garbage, reading to children, etc) send the picture to Alli Lampshire at firstname.lastname@example.org by the 17th of each month, unless other wise noted. On a different note, I will be presenting at the RTC (Regional Training Conference) on October 23, 2011 at UNR from 12-4. I will be presenting the Editor’s Workshop! I can answer any questions and maybe teach the editors a thing or two. I can’t wait to meet all of D23’s terrific Tech Editor’s!

The DCM was followed by the JDRF Walk for a Cure. A huge thanks goes out to Lowry, Wooster, Reed, North Valleys and Reno High Key Clubs for participating in this walk. At the DCM, Key Club business was discussed. RTC is right around the corner as is Fall Rally. Have any questions about it? Ask one of your officers or Alyssa. Keep working hard on raising funds for PTP and staying active in service. Also, don't forget to celebrate Key Club week and bring a friend to your club's meeting! Want more info?

Although Key Club is all about having fun, please do not lose sight of our wonderful upcoming service opportunities. Please talk to your club officers for service projects available. Happy Key Clubbing!

Keeping Truckee Meadows Beautiful Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful was a very "classic" service project. It allowed members to go outdoors and directly help the community by cleaning it up. Working with KTMB was a blast because the people were really nice and seeing so many people serving their community was great. After three and a half hours of digging into the river, exploring bushes, and picking up countless bags worth of trash, KTMB held a "thank you" barbecue for the volunteers. Key Club members from Reed, Reno, and Wooster met at Fisherman's Park to begin cleaning up the Truckee River. Key Clubbers from Hug were at another site. Following this service, we attended the barbecue and were able to bond with UNR's Circle K that also helped with KTMB.

Galena High School Galena's Key Club participated in the Race of the Cure for Breast Cancer Awareness Month .
Lowry High School Lowry Key Club sponsored Club week to recruit new members. At our first meeting we had 40 students show up. 40 students may not sound like a lot especially when compared to other clubs, but that is FANTASTIC for Lowry! We hosted a Taco night to fundraise for Fall Rally North; we fundraised about $135.00. At the South Tahoe-Lowry Football game, we had a 50/ 50 Raffle, raising about $330. Needing more money to Fall Rally North, we have started fundraising for Enchilada Feed on October 23. During meetings we have competitionsâ€“ who has the pledge memorized, who knows what FRN, PTP, CTC, DCON, ICON stands for.
Reed High School Reed High Key Club has gotten off to a great start for the 2011-12 school year. We have had a large influx of members wanting to join Key Club and are excited for Key Club events to come. Reed High School recently had a club drive and we had 60 students sign up to be a part of Key Club. Now that we have their attention we are working on hooking them into service while focusing on Membership Dues and Fall Rally dues. We are aiming for the Early Bird Status on our membership dues.
Reno High School At Reno High School, September was a month filled with craziness! We had a club fair where we had over 150 people sign up to be a part of Key Club. We had an amazing turn out at our first meeting with 112 members present, however our numbers have gone down since then. There is a great deal of involvement within our club. In order to keep members interested in going to our meetings we hold Opportunity Drawings for iTunes gift cards at each meeting. Although
Wooster High School The Wooster High Key Club has spent most of September orienting new Key Club members and preparing for Fall Rally. Several small fundraisers were held throughout the month. So far, membership in our Key Club has spiked and new members continue to join. Service projects during the month of September have been focused on Pediatric Trauma Program.
