Past Event Recaps December Kiwanis Meeting During winter break on December 23rd, 2011 along with board members we attended a Kiwanis meeting. It was a very enjoyable time with our hosting Kiwanis club because we got to bond with them and talk about service together. Personally I learned a lot about what we can do in the community from the Kiwanis meeting. Due to the meeting we are actually planning on doing an Easter Egg Hunting event for a children’s hospital together. It was quite the experience; we met at Bootleggers, an Italian Restaurant, to talk about exactly what is happening in our Key Clubs. My board and I do hope to strengthen our bond with our Kiwanis over these upcoming months. If you want to have a more successful Key Club then going to a Kiwanis DCM or Kiwanis meeting is highly recommended. Getting to know your hosting Kiwanis club is a big deal because they can help a lot with funding, doing service, and even chaperoning if your club really needs it. That is what my board and I did over the winter break! What a blast! - Christopher Bui, Advanced Technologies Academy

January DCM January Divisional Council Meeting held on January 10th, 2012 was an amazing meeting. I have never been so fired up to go to CTC (Candidate Training Conference) or been so inspire to get ready for District Convention for this year. DCMs are a great way to get involved in your division and even meet new people who are just as dedicated as you are to Key Club. It was a great time hanging out with fellow D28N Key Clubbers. It inspires me to do more each time I go to a DCM because everyone is so involved in their service and they make me want to do service. Also, learning about what is going on in our district is always fascinating to learn about, for example, DCON or District Convention is coming up and now I really want me and my club to go. DCMs are a great way to build relations with your division and even your LTG, so if you and your club have not gone to one yet COME TO THE NEXT ONE! -Christopher Bui, Advanced Technologies Academy

Kiwanis January DCM On January 14, 2012 me and my fellow Bulletin Editor, Brian Vu attended a Kiwanis DCM (Divisional council meeting). It was great time learning and talking with our fellow Kiwanians. We learned about K- 1 Day and future events going on. Surprisingly I even did a club report on my own telling the Kiwanis what is going on with my club. Kiwanis DCM is definitely worth the time. Everyone should go to one to create a better relationship with our Kiwanians . -Christopher Bui, Advanced Technologies Academy


CLUB SNAPSHOTS For the month of December 2011

East Career and Technical Academy It was the last month of 2011, but not the last month for our club to do service! For the month of December, our club has been involved with many projects. Our major project was the St. Jude's Christmas for Kids toy drive. 22 children who are currently fighting through many treatments and disease recieved specific gifts they ask for, such as toys, lotion, books, etc. Although we only had 2 weeks of school in December, we managed to provide all 22 children gifts that they had wished for. We are also very happy with the outcome of this project that we sent in an article to CNH Keyclub. December was a month filled with holiday spirit, so we didn't stop there. We were introduced to Holiday Spectacular at Springs Preserve. We were assigned to stations, helped passed out water bottles, and played with the little children. Our fellow president volunteered at Magical Forest as security safety when people crossed the train tracks. Other members got involved with other schools such as Bailey Middle school and Cunningham Elementary school as office, library and tutoring volunteers. Winter Break had finally come, but we sure did not forget that service never dies. Our club contiued volunteering during the long two week break. Many members were still active at volunteering at Valley Hospital on the nursing floors, ICU and the emergency room. They helped deliver food to patient's in rooms, socialized with patients, and discharged patients by pushing them in wheelchairs down to their cars. December has been a wonderful month for East Tech Key Club. We are happy to see how active our club still is, and we hope that the new year has many great things in store for our club.

Advanced Technologies Academy With the month of December cut short, we still tried to provide as many service opportunities possible and take action to keep members' interest. First of all, this month we hosted our very first committee meetings. It was very successive as we had many members show up to take part in giving ideas and helping us plan. With committee meetings, basically each officer is the head of one of the main committees: Membership Development, Service, Public Relations, Social/Kiwanis Relations, Fundraising, and Spirit. It was lovely being able to get some insight from our members and expand our horizon of ideas. Furthermore, we also presented our members with the opportunity of participating in the Santa Run and the Zappos Rock and Roll Marathon; and because winter break takes over much of this month, we decided to get in contact with the Springs Preserve for members to partake in service over break. Thus the Springs Preserve was having their Holiday Spectacular which gave members a whole week over winter break of service opportunities! They were able to assist in many small duties that definitely made a difference. Furthermore with January around the corner the board also spent this time to plan for the month, and there are many things on the agenda already! We're all so excited as the Key Club year continues, but as of now we wished everyone a Happy Holidays and happy services.

FUN FACT As a division, we have completed 9978.5 hours so far! Keep up the amazing work, Phoenixes!!
