  Street  clean  up  is  always  an  event  I  look   forward  to  attending.  When  I  first  arrive,   the  first  thing  I  notice  is  all  the  trash  in  the   sidewalk  and  the  street.  I  think  to  myself,   “This  is  going  to  be  a  long  day!"  I  then  see   all  the  KEY  clubbers  ready  to  give  back  to   the  community  and  ready  to  help.  As  I'm   picking  up  the  trash  I  remember  a  part  of   pi the  KEY  club  pledge  which  says,"  to  build   my  home,  school,  and  community..."  And   the  word  "community"  stands  out,  motivat-­ ing  me  to  keep  giving  back  to  the  

community  by  cleaning  the  streets.  After   we  have  finished  cleaning  the  long   blocks,  I  look  down  the  block  and  see   how  different  and  clean  the  street  looks.   As  I’m  looking  down  the  street  I  realize   that  what  we  have  done  has  made  a  dra-­ matic  impact  in  our  community;  which  is   what  matter  most  to  me.  Although,  I   what  mat might  not  be  making  a  huge  impact  in   the  world,  we  are  all  making  a  change:   one  community  at  a  time.   buzzing  in  service Key Club International |CNH Key Club | Region 7 | Division 25 West

Rose Parade Float Decoration Article & Visuals | Andrew Phan

Winter Break is normally a time of relaxation and fun for many teenagers, who want a break from schoolwork and more. However, during Winter Break, it gave Division 25 West a GOLDEN opportunity to go to Pasadena, and help the Kiwanis family decorate the Rose Parade Float Decoration. It was a warm winter morning on December 26th when many members from division 25 West showed up, with many other members from other divisions such as 10 South turtles. First, we were given shirts, told what to do, and got straight to work. Even though it seemed as if time would pass by slowly, working with other members of the same organization o made it seem much faster. At first, I was cleaning seeds up with a vacuum, but soon I was on the Honda float gluing seeds. As soon as I knew it, lunchtime had arrived and I was working the lines, helping pass out water to all the tired, but dedicated volunteers. Soon after lunch, everyone got back to work. I helped around cutting flowers and got to meet Bob Eubanks while I was there. The day passed by quickly with all the work being done, but I made some awesome continued on page 9

friends while working. I got to meet District Secretary, Amanda Redublo, who helped passed out hot choco-足 late, while I was there. The day ended at 11 P.M, but the experience of serving with new friends, and people I call family was rewarding, despite all of the tiring work and mess.

Key Club members patiently listen and receive instruction on how to paint a float at the annual Kiwanis Rose Parade Float Decoration.

Final 2013 Workday

Written  by  Ronald  Guan  |Canoga  Park  Historian This  month  the  Canoga  Park  FFA  and  Key  Club  +  Green  E  Club  teamed  up   once  more  for  some  last  minute  clean  up  of  the  agricultural  area  before  the   New  Year  arrives!  As  usual,  students  and  parents  volunteered  their  Saturday   morning  to  help  with  general  cleanup,  weeding,  sweeping,  and  maintenance   of  the  farm.  Breakfast  and  Lunch  was  provided  for  all  volunteers.  Although   it  was  a  fairly  windy  day,  numerous  members  still  came  out  to  participate  in   the  work  day.  We  hope  to  see  more  individuals  attend  the  following  work   days.  As  2014  approaches,  I  hope  that  the  Agricultural  Area  will  continue  to   da become  more  beautiful.

/05&4 Happy New Year Pufferfish! It's about that time of year where we elect new officers and pass on the torch. Conclave -­-­the election for the new Lieutenant Governor -­-­ will take place on January 25th. Each school should be having their own elections for cabinet around this time as well, so you should all start thinking about running for a position! It's an extremely reward-­ ing experience, trust me. You may be shy or insecure about running, but you'll never know what you could learn if you don't try. So take that risk! Past officers, you should try your best to encourage your underclassmen and fellow key clubbers to run as well! Another future event that I'm sure most of us are antici-­ pating is DCON, or District Convention, taking place from April 11th to April 13th, the weekend before spring break for many of us. It may be a little pricey, but the experience is worth it. Everyone shares their spirit and you get to meet people from all over California, Nevada, and Hawaii. Most of the work-­ shops are run by actual Key Clubbers, so you know that they understand your experience as a member. Your Executive Assistant, Uyen Lam

Happy Holidays, Spikey Babies! I hope that your Winter Break was swell, twas a very warm Christmas, indeed. Fare thee well to 2013 and I hope your 2014 will be a blessed one. For 2014, make a resolu-­ tion to be more involved in Key Club. Elec-­ tion season is here! Consider being a part of your cabinet board! I’ve had the great est honor to serve as my club Historian as well as the Division Executive Assistant. An even greater goal to strive for is LTG, so act fast and think fast because the time is now. Key Club in actuality is a short experi-­ ence; four years and that’s it, so make the best of it. Although it is past the holiday spirit by now I would like to thank all of the division for showing me your love and compassion through service. I’d like to also thank the rest of the Division Board because Matthew has been an outstand-­ ing Lieutenant Governor, Andrew has been a hard working and persistent tech editor, and Uyen has been an organized partner. Thank you! Your Executive Assistant, Katarina Baltazar
