A quick message from your 2013 - 2014

Division News Editor Hello my wonderful Koalas, The holiday season is finally upon us! Our long awaited winter break is on and we can look forward to drinking hot chocolate, sitting by the fire, and spending time with family. With these three weeks of freedom from school work, we have more time to focus on Key Club, haha. But seriously, we can’t forget about our Key Club Ohana! This cominf month marks our countdown to DCON 2014. Can you believe that we’re only a few months away from using our GOLDEN ticket to meeting amazing people, attending wonderful workshops, and celebrating a great year of service? It is really so hard to believe that I was just appointed back in April but my appointment has brought so many new memories and new opportunities. I hope everyone feels the same! With that being said, I encourage all of you to apply for awards. I know everyone has been working so, so hard and everyone who applies definitely deserves an award of their own. Anyway, I think we can focus all of our energy into major events that lead up to DCON. I’m excited for our upcoming Division OTC, iceskating fundraiser, Winter Ball, and, here comes the biggest one, CONCLAVE! To those of you who are running for the position of Lieutenant Governor, I wish you the best of luck. Have a safe, relaxing winter break and have a happy, happy holiday! I look forward to seeing everyone this break.

Lt. Governor Message

Inspired leadership within the community. I saw so much leadership growth within all of you that it truly makes it a remarkable experience serving as your Lt. Governor. DCON is your opportunity to be recognized of this growth. Apply for awards and BEE recognized for all of your work. Dedicated nearly 3000 hours of service. The dedication all of you exude to service is incredible and inspiring. Not only did you perform service, you have performed koalaty service. The 3000 hours we contributed all together have helped provide opportunities to hundreds of children in the local community, shipped countless care packages to veterans, soldiers, and their families, and build tools that not only relieve damage but also prevent damage in the first place. Thank you to all of you servant leaders! Eliminate numerous disasters that continue to haunt families and children. Together, we have raised nearly 5000 dollars for the Pediatric Trauma Program, 1000 dollars for the American Cancer Society, 300 dollars for the AIDS Walk. My mind is blown by these astronomical numbers and all I can say is I am so proud of OUR achievements. Thank you all so much for your work. Your efforts are magical and inspiring. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at anytime. I am always here to support you. Happy Holidays!

St. J u de’s Give thanks walk Isabel Evangelista | John F. Kennedy HS On Saturday, November 23, 2013, St. Jude held their “Give Thanks” Walk inside Paramount Studios. Kennedy Key Clubbers and I were given an amazing opportunity to walk around the lot for a 3.1 miles, allowing us to walk 3 laps around. As we entered, we were greeted by many volunteers who were cheering us on. This even included Division 10 South Blue Turtles! As we were on the lot, we were able to see what was filmed around there. This included currently aired shows such as American Horror Story and Community. While at the walk, we received a lot of free stuff like thunder sticks, cinch bags, and little cowbells. We also raised a total of $690 for St. Jude’s Cancer Research!

Past Event

Everybody reads

Jessie Aw | Granada Hills Charter HS It’s that time of the month again! This month’s Everybody Reads was hosted on November 16th from 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM. Members excitedly arrived at Noble Elementary School ready to read to those adorable kids and offer their time to serve! With children from Pre- School to up to fifth grade, Key Clubbers were very passionate to serve the community. As it meant so much to the kids and just as much to the members, the time was surely treasured. Everybody Reads has always been a monthly tradition to our club and one of the most look forward to. Key Clubbers can never get tired of reading to those kids and always look forward to their joyful smiles.

Club Recaps are created by each individual club giving each club an opportunity to reflect, make goals, and advertise to the entire division!


Cleveland Key Club “Fall Rally was a great experience! Although it was not as fun as last year it was great because I got to meet new friends from all over southern California! Along with that I was able to go on rides with all of my closest friends and share screams, tears and laughs. It was a very bitter sweet event as it is my favorite event of the year however it was my last fall rally.” –Kurt Luu, Vice President

Volunteers are requested to sing and/or play music at the Corbin House Holiday Party on Friday December 13 from 67:30! Dinner will be provided. Those interested can do an individual performance as well as a group Christmas carol! Cleveland Time Club will be holding an after school party on Monday December 9 from 3:15-4:15 at the Media Academy! At this party they will teach us how we can help in their effort for the 9th International Youth Media Summit. Refreshments will be provided!

Love the X-Factor? Here’s your chance to see the show live in the studio on December 18th! This event is not only for your amusement, as you will be able to cheer for your favorite contestants, but also to raise awareness of Project Eliminate and what we do as Key Clubbers! Deadline to sign up is December 18th. Sign up below: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1RHfXjKYj5Nqsfo_Dj_P YCdKxlj0GPgoVChy3xGXwQGg/viewform#start=openfo rm


Kennedy ICE SKATING FUNDRAISER On Saturday December 7th, 2013, Kennedy Key Club and Northridge Academy Key Club held a joint ice skating fundraiser! All of the money that we raised went towards Project ELIMINATE, charging $10 for presale and $12 at the door. Not only were we helping to raise money for one of our main projects, we also were given the opportunity to not only socialize with people from our schools, but the rest of the division and other divisions as well!

GIFT WRAPPING From Friday, December 6th-Sunday, December 8th, Kennedy Key Club teamed up with three fellow schools in the division; Monroe, Northridge Academy, and Cleveland. This gave us the opportunity to unite four schools and help provide the local community with free gift wrapping. Not only did we grow closer, but we also got to interact with the community in a much more fulfilling way.

“Personally, November was a very successful month, and so far December has been very successful as well. I was able to experience my first Fall Rally, and I was also able to be in charge of my first event! I’m also almost done with my club’s website, which should be up soon. I hope that next month will be more successful, seeing that we have winter break which gives us more opportunities to hold more events and fundraisers!” -Isabel Evangelista, Kennedy Key Club Historian


James Monroe High School Key Club Gift-wrapping Fundraiser: The Monroe Key Club did a gift-wrapping event at Topanga Mall with Cleveland, Kennedy, and Northridge Academy’s Key Club. We wrapped gifts for free. It was a lot of fun, and we raised a ton of money in donation! And all the money raised is going to Project Eliminate! It was a great event!

We did the gift-wrap event with Cleveland, Kennedy, and Northridge Academy. It was a lot of fun to collaborate with the other clubs! We wrapped gifts with other key clubbers all day, and I got to meet and bond with people that I wouldn’t have met other wise. Over all, it was a really great event, and I can’t wait for the next one! -Aminata Diallo, Tech Editor

Timothy Sun Koala of the Month

Timothy Sun has shown a lot of enthusiasm for Key Club, not only in the past month, but in the past year. He attended DCON as a freshman, which is pretty rare to see, and has only shown more passion for the club since then. He was one of the people constantly cheering throughout our rally session and never looked bored or tired. Not only that, he attends many of the events that our club has to offer, from Beckford Trunk-or-Treat to the Division Car Wash. He has also shown an interest in running for an officer position for the upcoming Key Club term. This initiative to take a more active role in the club demonstrates his dedication as a member and potential as a leader. Being involved in Key Club from the very beginning, it is great to see that Timothy’s passion for the club has not dwindled, but actually continues to grow. { Birmingham

Cleveland HS Club of the Month

Cleveland Key Club has shown so much growth in every aspect that I can only gasp in amazement and pride of its work. The officers have worked so hard and shown so much dedication and their leadership abilities serve as inspiration for the rest of the members in the division. Its members are some of most spirited and BEEutiful leaders I have ever seen and because of all of their work, Cleveland Key Club has achieved so much in both fundraising and service. The club has shown conspicuous growth in membership and leadership. For these reasons, I am proud to present Cleveland Key Club as the club of the month for the month of December.

Elbert Lim Officer of the Month

Secretary Elbert has shown so much dedication in service and leadership that it is to the pride of the division to present as the Officer of the Month. Over the past months, Elbert has dedicated so much time and effort in ensuring the accuracy of the dues collection and submission process of the members. Despite offers in support lent by his colleague officers, Elbert was determined to complete the work on his own to relieve the stress from the board he serves. His excellent work is exemplified by the growth in dues paid members count of Cleveland Key Club. In addition, Elbert has completed his secretary duties including the MRFs beyond regular expectations and his work exemplifies that of a great leader. The division is proud to present him as the Officer of the Month for the month of December. { Birmingham
