GREETINGS Hey Baby Dragons! It’s that time of the month again! And by time of the month, I mean newsletter time! The Toasty Times is finally out of the toaster so please enjoy with some jam and butter! Can you see it? Can you hear it? Can you taste it? Can you smell it? Can you feel it? “What are you talking about?” you may ask? Well I’m talking about freedom! With only a few more weeks, we’re dying to just get school over and done with. Just a little bit more and we’re out! I hope you all have studied hard to pass your AP/IB/EOC Exams! I’m sure you all did great! We only have finals left so keep going and work hard! What’s the perfect way to celebrate the end of the school year? Key Club events of course! Please attend Portland Rally on June 21st, the Officer Installation/Awards Banquet, which doubles as our June DCM, on June 22nd, and Tacoma Rally on June 28th! Summer vacation is a great way to have more fun with Key Club! From volunteer events, to DCMs, to rallies, Key Club never stops! Officers! Thank you for turning in your reports! Every single one of one got them in on time! Please continue to nominate outstanding clubs, officers, and regular members! I did not get enough nominations for Dragon Club of the Month Dragon Members of the Month of April and May. Please get those in so I can include them in my next newsletter! Shutout to Peter Da for being the only one to turn them in. (Yes, it’s true. Only one out of 42 Division 32 officers turned it in). You’ve all done a great job, but we need to work on that. The end of the school year also means the end of my unfortunate situation. I apologize for not fully being there for you guys these past few months! But now I’m back in action and nobody can stop me! Please look out for upcoming fundraisers, volunteer events, and socials planned by yours truly! Menchies and Brown Bear coupons anyone? How about a hypnotist show and some Key Club and Kiwanis collaboration? Definitely some interclub action! Maybe even another joint DCM? This summer will be packed full of nonstop service, fundraising, and fun in the sun! If you have any suggestions on volunteer events, socials, or fundraisers that we should do, please don’t be afraid to let me know! Call me, beep me, if you wanna reach me! Mama Dragon is here to listen to you! I have updated the Dragon Scale Standings so please turn to page 15 for more information! Officers and members! READ MY NEWSLETTERS! Please. I’ve seen a decrease in newsletter participation and that just break my heart. I know you guys are busy, but it only takes a few minutes to read through my newsletters! I expect to see an increase by July! Please read your District Editor’s newsletters as well! Jenny Zhang spends a lot of time and effort on her newsletters and she loves feedback (as do I). Just keep that in mind for the future! Thank you Baby Dragons and see you around!
Yours always in caring, love, friendship, and service

THE ELIMINATE PROJECT
What is the Eliminate Project?
The Eliminate Project is a joint project with Kiwanis and UNICEF to internationally terminate MNT.
What is MNT?
Maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT) is tetanus that occurs in mothers and new borns. Its effects are excruciating â€” tiny newborns suffer repeated, painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch. MNT kills one baby every nine minutes. It also kills mothers and there is little hope of survival.
Who suffers from MNT?
MNT strikes the poorest of the poor, the geographically hard to reach and those without health care. It is caused when tetanus pores, found in soil everywhere, come into contact with open cuts during childbirth.
Can MNT be stopped?
Yes! Just three doses of a 60-cent immunization protect mothers, who then pass on the immunity to their future babies.
DO YOUR PART EDCUCATE yourself Advocate to the world Invest to save and protect Eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus
$1.80 is enough to save the lives of a mother and her newborn

MAY DCM REVIEW The Joint DCM with divisions 22/24, 26, 27, 28, 33, 34, and 35 was a total hit! We got to meet and bond with Key Clubbers from a multitude of divisions. Even Key Clubbers from Division 20i and Oregon came! Unfortunately we ran out of food to eat, but we still had a ton of fun! I hope you all enjoyed yourselves and made a lot of friends from throughout the Seattle Area and beyond! We raised $654.23 from the Miracle Minute, enough for every LtG to get pied in the face! My presidential innie, Justin Danao, was the one wo got to pie my in the face. Division 32 held the first ever Key Club Tennis Tournament at a DCM. The mixed doubles pair, Luana Williams and Daniel Kim, both from Division 35, both won a free pass to Seattle Rally this summer. We made a total of $140 from the tournament, which means we saved 77 babies from MNT! Great job guys! I hope to see many more of you guys at the June DCM which doubles as the Officer Installation/Awards Banquet!

DRAGON SCALES EARN POINTS BY:
The point of Dragon Scales is to create a comfy environment in our division, improve communication throughout our division, improve member, officer, and club performance, which combined, will improve our division as a whole.
How does this work?
Short term goals have been set for members, officers, and clubs as a whole. If these are met, Dragon Scale Points will be given. If a club meets their long term goal of a specific number of Dragon Scale Points by the end of the year, that club will be invited to The Dragon Scale Party where cool prizes like big checks and certificates will be given out. The long term goal divided by 10 will be the average number of Dragon Scale Points a club will need to reach every month in order to be on track to go to the Dragon Scale Party. Clubs can recover from a loss of Dragon Scale Points (or gain extra) by carrying out miscellaneous tasks throughout the year or attending Kiwanis meetings and DCMs.
