The Official Division 25 West Newsletter June 2013 Edition |2013 -­ 2014 Year | Issue 3 Table of  Contents Relay  for  Life  Cleveland | by Christian Narciso |   One  of  the  events  this  month  of  June  was  Relay  for  Life   at  Cleveland  High  School.  Key  Clubbers  from  25  West  and  East   were  present  for  the  heart-­warming  cancer  awareness  event.  The   schools  in  our  division  that  were  present  are  SOCES,  Reseda,   and  Canoga.  They  helped  play  an  important  role  in  the  event,   by  setting  up  and  cooking  a  sausage  and  pancake  breakfast  with   the  members  of  the  Reseda/Canoga  Kiwanis.  It  was  6  am  in  the   morning  and  the  Kiwanis  came  to  set  up  their  cooking  station   for  the  breakfast.  Key  Clubbers  from  D25W  started  helping   them  out  by  setting  up  the  tables,  chairs,  and  the  materials   needed  to  cook  for  the  breakfast.  After  setting  up,  it  was  time  to   prepare  the  food  the  Kiwanis  brought  for  the  event.  While  the   Kiwanis  were  cooking  the  pancakes  and  sausages  for  the  break-­ fast,  the  Key  Clubbers  were  preparing  the  other  food  and  drink   items  items  such  as  maple  syrup,  butter,  bananas,  apples,   oranges,  juice,  and  water.

Division News! Relay for  Life  Cleveland continued

Once the  clock  hit  8:00,  the  people  started   lining  up  for  breakfast.  We  were  ready  to  serve   a  hearty  warm  meal  of  pancake/sausage  break-­ fast  for  the  people  who  were  in  the  event.   Everything  was  ready  for  the  breakfast,  the   utensils  were  prepped  and  the  food  is  already   displayed.  Kiwanis  and  Key  Club  served  break-­ fast  to  all  ranges  of  people  during  the  Relay   For  Life  event.  We  served  breakfast  to  police   officers  who  maintained  security,  to  many   members  from  Division  25  East,  cancer  survi-­ vors  who  made  up  the  bulk  of  the  event,  and   many  families  with  their  children.  It  was  great   to  volunteer  for  Relay  For  Life,  since  we  got  to   help  out  those  who  had  a  personal  battle  with   cancer  throughout  their  lives  and  we  get  to  see   them  having  a  smile  on  their  face  by  serving   them  a  warm  breakfast.  Overall,  the  event  was   quite  fun  and  heart-­warming  to  volunteer  for.
