Hello lovely Pufferfish!
One month into the term and I can see there are so many BEEutiful hardworking members and officers dedicated to the Division! It is truly a blessing to serve such a spirited and caring Division. Of course, I know not all of you have been able to meet me personally. I have been in Key Club since the beginning of high school. I served as Historian, President, and a Division Spirit Leader! I love singing and am on Taft’s Vocal Ensemble as a soprano. My life solely revolves around Key Club, music, and preserving the environment. If you’ve noticed, I’m a tad bit crazy and I enjoy stalking D25W’s members on the internet because I love getting to know all of you! I’m always here for every single one of you, so don’t be shy to come talk to me! Congratulations to everyone for finishing the dreaded AP exam season! I’m sure you all did well. As school’s end approaches, finish those finals strong. Seniors, you are still members of KCI until ICON. I’ll see you Pufferfish at May DCM. Swimming in service, Olivia Villasana

Little things like setting aside Starbucks money means a coffee to you, but means a person’s LIFE to another.
IT ONLY TAKES $1.80 TO PROVIDE 3 DOSES OF THE VACCINATION Kiwanis International has partnered up with UNICEF and pledged to raise $110 MILLION dollars by 2015 to combat and eradicate maternal/ neonatal tetanus.
Look at the smile on his face! What would’ve happened had he never received the vaccination?
Every 9 minutes, a child dies from this disease. From contracting the disease they become sensitive to all forms of sense. Sound, light, touch all becomes excruciatingly painful. As the baby cries in helplessness, a mother can’t even hold her baby in her arms as they breathe their last breaths.

Miles for Melanoma 5K Run/Walk Universal Studios Backlot By Joanna Guillermo, Taft President Melanoma is the deadliest and most serious case of skin cancer. It is the 2nd most common cancer in people ages 15-29. There is no cure, and if not treated, can spread to other parts of the body. However, melanoma is completely preventable! I had no idea what this cancer even was until volunteering for this event. We helped set up and clean up for the event, register runners and hand out drinks after the race. We even had the honor to meet many fighters and survivors of melanoma. They inspired us to stay head strong in life and enjoy what we have. The Melanoma Research Foundation appreciates that Taft Key Club was there to provide service and awareness to younger generations. Thank you to everyone who came to volunteer, and I hope y'all spread the word that everyone should wear sunscreen everyday and not just to the beach!

Senior Symposium By Joanna Guillermo, Taft President This was a great event where both Taft and El Camino's Clubs teamed up. Despite the long hours, blazing sun and heat, we were able to provide the senior citizens with unending compassion and service. Lunch was probably the hardest part of the day, when everyone wanted their food. People were pushing and shoving, and we were careful and responsible enough to keep our cool and keep serving. Thank you to everyone who came out to volunteer at this event. The coordinator of volunteers was very grateful that we worked so hard, and she said they are definitely going to come to Key Club for volunteers next year and upcoming years!
Worldfest 2014 WorldFest is an event that helps people be more aware of their impact on their community, the environment, and the world. From being taught the benefits of being vegan to the terrible abuse of animals for scientific research, you learn the values of being environmentally friendly. Whether you're a volunteer or attendee, this event impacts the way you view our community. Even in the heat and dust blowing in our eyes, we worked where we were needed and did so much more than we were asked. Even as volunteers, we taught others how to be more eco-friendly by serving free filtered water in reusable bottles and picking up trash that wasn't ours. I know we made a difference in the way others see the world and young adults because we proved them that even teenagers are concerned about our community and want to take better care of it. Thanks to all those who came out and dedicated long hours to WorldFest!
