Ahhh, February. Do you smell that in the air? Yes, it's the season of ELECTIONS. Most clubs should be finishing up their club elections, and newly elected members have begun to transition into their positions. This is the time for officers to continue their tasks and responsibilities, while also training their new officers. Remember, a Key Club year spans from April of one year to the April of the next year! At the mention of club elections, most are anticipating the Division elections! Yes, that's right! Conclave is almost here! I'm reminded of the days before I ran. The feelings of nervousness and excitement. These feelings built up inside of me, with thoughts of the future, and look where I am today! With the election season upon us, and the change in club leadership, do not let this deter you in taking that extra step forward to lead and serve your communities! Continue to recruit new members into your clubs and introduce them to the wonderful family of volunteers. I heard at a recent Kiwanis event a statement that I feel can also apply to us Key Clubbers. I have modified it for this purpose. "People don't join Key Clubbers; they join Key Clubbers" This statement is truly beautiful and it's true. Think back to how you joined Key Club. Now think about why you stayed! :] Happy serving! - Your LTG, Justine Hsu!


Hello Jellies! It’s about time I put out a newsletter, huh? I apologize for coming short handed during December and last month. BUT HERE’S FEBRUARY! :) Anywho I still can’t believe that I only have four months of Key Club left. Thinking back, I remember when I first joined Key Club, I had no idea that it would have impacted my life as much as it did. Key Club has greatly changed the way I look at world around me. Before, I was just another person living their life on this planet. But now, I’m a person who is making a difference in the world around me. Key Club has taught me how much of an impact people can make on bettering their community. How giving my time and service would not only better others around me but also myself. It has taught me how to be a better leader and a more responsible individual. (Even though I missed two issues of newsletters. T_T) It has also taught me how procrastinating isn’t...so great. After making six newsletters however, I... still haven’t learned. I plan to spend the last four months I have in Key Club with full of spirit and inspiring members of my own club to be more involved. Key Club has been a great experience for me and I hope that YOU have also experienced the full potential of Key Club. I would greatly appreciate it if YOU ( Jellies) would write me either a RECAP or a BLURB and submit it on our submission page. I made that page so it would be easier for YOU to send in articles. Well, that’s about it! HAVE AN AMAZING TIME FUNDRAISING FOR DCON!! - Kim Vo, Your Tech Editor!

Kiwanis One Day Kiwanis One Day is April 21, 2012. Every Key Club should save Saturday, April 21, 2012, for the annual Kiwanis service initiative observed worldwide – Kiwanis One Day. On Kiwanis One Day, every club is urged to join with the rest of the Kiwanis family-K-Kids, Builders, Circle K, Aktion Club, and Kiwanis--for a day of united service. Called Kiwanis One Day, the event is inspired by Past International President Nelson Tucker’s initiative to create a day that unites the entire Kiwanis family in service. Kiwanis One Day provides an opportunity to showcase the Kiwanis family and our commitment to service in each community. Think of the impact of more than 600,000 Kiwanis family members can make in one day of united service. Every club is invited to take part in this momentous event. For the most up-to-date information and more resources, visit the official Kiwanis One Day page.
