I cannot believe that school is here; our fun in the sun is officially over! Now it is time to start thinking up ways on how YOU can attract some new members to our amazing service organization! With September here, we only have 6 more months in this key club year! We have to make sure we make the best of it! I think one of the best dips I can give you to gain new members is that; board members, encourage your members to bring their friends to your events and meetings. Personally, that is how I got involved in Key Club. During my school’s Club Rush week, I approached the Key Club booth but the idea of doing community service didn’t really stand out to me, especially as a freshmen! My friend Tiffany dragged me to a club meeting in October and next thing I knew I was at the October DCM enjoying icebreakers, and Fall Rally prep! New members will be walking in left and right if you simply invite them to a meeting! Along with the member recruitment, don’t be down if the students on your campus don’t show up to your meetings or don’t go to an event after you have invited them! Just know that all your hard work is not going to waste, take all criticism and compliments with a smile! Some things to look forward to in the fast approaching months of autumn, include Light the Night Walk, Region 3 Training Conference, and of course one of the most anticipated events of the year FALL RALLY SOUTH! I can’t wait to see the growth in each and every one of your clubs! See you all at the September DCM! Always Shining With Service,

“Pancake Breakfast” Carolyn Nguyen, Oxford Academy

On July 20 , the annual dodgeball tournament was held at our July DCM! Key clubbers from around Division 30 South came to Veteran’s Park in the city of Cypress for some fun and food. The event began with the regular division meeting where each school can show their club’s pride and where our Lieutenant Governor informs the division of upcoming events. For even more fun, there was a Jamba Juice fundraiser. They were a variety of delicious flavors selling for $4 each to support the division. It was a great fundraiser for the summer time that everybody enjoyed!

Every time the Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast event is offered and I have free time, I never hesitate to sign up for it.

Aside from the Jamba Juice being sold, many clubs were selling their own treats such as cookies and cupcakes. Western Key Club had brought some incredible spam musubi.

The Kiwanis members are also incredibly sweet and hilarious to be around. They have an amazing sense of humor, and if you’re new to their events, they play a big part in helping you quickly become comfortable in serving a line full of customers anticipating the scrumptious pancakes.

The dodgeball tournament began shortly after the meeting and after the bracket was set up. Different schools participated in the game to become champions. As the tournament proceeded, other Key Clubbers were socializing and continued eating until eventually the food began to run out and the tournament came to an end. Overall it was a fun event for all attendees. Many of the Key Clubbers were left with great anticipation for the next DCM.

“La Palma July 4th Run for Fun” Tiffanie Abacan, Whitney HS

For those who haven’t been to this service event, it’s honestly one of the best that Key Club has to offer. First of all, the free pancakes are to die for. Kiwanis makes one of the best pancakes ever, and the fact that they’re for free means that it is seriously worth volunteering for them. I mean, who doesn’t want to be paid in pancakes? Just thinking about it makes my mouth water.

For some reason, I feel like it’s so much easier to make new friends when I got to the Kiwanis pancake breakfasts as well. The environment is extremely laid-back and relaxed, which helps a whole lot in opening up and meeting new people! All I have to say about this event overall, is if you haven’t been to one of these breakfasts, then you’re missing out on a warm environment and delicious pancakes.

Once the race ended, our station was swarmed with very thirsty runners and walkers who were filling out surveys and leaving happily with their huge bottles of fruit juice.

At precisely 4:45 am, I got up from bed groggy and sleepy. That Our wonderful Kiwanis group was also there with a deliday was one of most special days of the year: July 4 – the birthday cious pancake breakfast. The line was very long and the panof our beloved U.S. of A. cakes were great. The annual La Palma Run for Fun is a race that consists The whole event was a success! The runners and walkers of a 5k and a 10k walk or run. This year, La Palma had close to finished their race like champions, the Kiwanis sold lots of panone thousand participants. cakes, and we – the volunteers – had fun the whole time! This The event took place in the morning, but we Keyclub- event was definitely worth the time waking up as early as 4:45 bers woke up extra early to do the day’s work. We packed at least am. one hundred bags with granola bars and coupons to a restaurant. We ran the survey station, where if you took a survey, you could take the bag of goodies and a huge bottle of fruit drink.

Articles Cont’d “’Hi Neighbor’ Tree Planting Zayrha Arambula, Western HS I woke up even more ecstatic on July 21st, a Saturday, when I saw how sunny it was outside. Finally, I had a “hands on” project and also one that would require a lot activity. I arrived at the event around eight in the morning and what immediately caught my attention was the giant lot of dirt. To my surprise, there was barely any green. I expected some trees to be planted but I could see that it was only the first stage of creating the community garden. My sister and I were assigned to shovel soil into wheelbarrows to transfer it by the holes that were already dug up to plant the trees. Surprisingly, it was fun because it wasn’t as hard yet and we were shoveling with other volunteers from Western. When we finished with that, we were assigned to flatten out a huge mountain of dirt in the middle of the lot and throw any rocks or pebbles to form a pile on the side. A friendly leader commented that they would use those rocks to build nice stone paths. Flattening it out was not easy and it took forever even when other volunteers offered to help too. I met several new people and a group of nice girls remarked they were part of the Mosque in Anaheim. I asked one of the girls how old she was and she replied, “Twenty-seven”. I gaped at her because I couldn’t believe it! She looked a decade younger! I also met a group of kids from “The Rock”, a Christian church located in Anaheim. I was touched by their willingness to help nearly the entire time. After a few hours of digging and shoveling and raking, the “Hi Neighbor” organization was kind enough to treat all the volunteers to a small barbeque. They gave us bananas, hot dogs, grapes, chips, granola bars and water. We were very grateful and took advantage of the meal! Despite the very warm weather, everyone, including me, looked hyper and glad to be part of this project. I promised myself that I would come help another weekend again.

Our wonderful Suns volunteering at Relay for Life!
