RED PANDA REVIEWING
15 LOOKING INTO THE FUTURE 20 LETâ€™S GET SOCIAL
Message from the President Hello Enochs Key Club, When circumstances accommodate the Endgame, it appears as though we only have each other. And perhaps that’s all we’ll ever need. When one situates themselves in a convention that esteems solidarity over validation, they not only become conducive to success, but also self acceptance. There are few things that subscribe to the acceleration towards glory, but togetherness will never relinquish supremacy in that advancement. Distinguished is a union that is abundant in concord and concert, remaining unparalleled in friendship, matchless in camaraderie, and untouchable in spirit. So perhaps the most intellectual form of escape from despair is knowing that when you’re down, we’ll try to pick you up and if you can’t stand, we’ll lay with you. When all else collapses, we’ll still have each other. DANIEL ELLI RUIZ ENOCHS PRESIDENT
Message from the Editor Hello Enochs Key Club, Iâ€™m honored to be able to serve this term as your vice president and editor. In our quest for greatness will come many tribulations, ones that may attempt to undermine our fundamentals and test our integrity. We as a whole will combat these afflictions with courage and tenacity. We will not tremble or despair in the face of adversity. Instead, we will rise up with valor, retaliate with strength, and succeed with thunderous power. Perhaps our name doesnâ€™t generate much reverence as of now; but in the months to come, we will forge a scintillating name that exudes magnificence in all aspects and perpetuates time. I entreat you to join us as we embark on this journey. Trailblazers we are in the frontier of darkness, and trailblazers we will be in the pursuit for happiness. We are, Enochs Key Club. ELAINE YONG ENOCHS VICE PRESIDENT AND EDITOR

WHAT HAVE WE BEEN UP TO? 8
CREEKWOOD COMMUNITY FAIR
The Creekwood Community Fair was hosted at Hughes Elementary School, in which members helped devise and organize games for the little kids. The event helped support Johansenâ€™s Music Program, and fundraised money for the Valley Childrenâ€™s Hospital. There was live music and food, and the event went smoothly. Examples of games hosted by key clubbers include ankle balloon pop, water pong, volleyball, cornhole, and a bubble blowing station.
RELAY FOR LIFE
The American Cancer Society hosted its annual Relay for Life at Johansen High School, in which supporters walked around the track and sold various items to promote awareness for cancer survivors. Members performed an assortment of tasks, such as preparing and selling fruit parfaits, walking around the track, and assisting with the cleanup process. The proceeds from the fruit parfaits went towards the Pediatric Trauma Program. Despite the inclement weather, a strong sense of commitment took precedence, and members persevered through the rain and chilling wind.
To kick off the new term, Division 46 North collaborated with its counterpart, Division 46 South, to host RetrOTC, which was a training conference for all new officers entering the 2019-2020 term. Officers and members congregated at Livingston High School, during which they attended training sessions of their choice throughout the morning and into the afternoon. A myriad of valuable information was assimilated throughout officers and members alike. This training conference provided an excellent atmosphere to forge new friendships with members from D46S, and warm greetings were exchanged throughout the day.
DLT OFFICERS OF 2019-2020
This year’s Banquet was hosted at Enochs High School, and was conjoined with the May DCM. It was an event of smiles and tears; as the term came to an end, members were recognized and awarded for their hard work by our MR, Monica In. Food from the newly established restaurant Wlidfire was served, along with rice and salad. With the conclusion of the term came the painful goodbyes. However, those who will not be here with us in appearance will be here in spirit. Once a red panda, always a red panda!

RIDE FOR MOMS
Ride for Moms took place on a crisp Saturday morning at Johansen High School. Members assembled to assist with setting up cones up for the bikers and provided continuous encouragement for riders. Volunteers ensured that the participants made it to the rest stop, and kept an eye out for any injured riders. Many interactions occurred between the youth and wiser folk, and the event was enjoyed by all who attended.
MODESTO USED BOOK SALE
The Modesto Used Book Sale occurred at the Stanislaus County Library. Throughout multiple shifts, members performed a variety of tasks. They informed customers of prices, assisted with the checkout process, and attempted to sell as many books as possible. It proved to be a rewarding event for customers and volunteers alike. “Overall. I’d say the sale was successful. The whole time, I got this genuine sense of friendliness that seemed to be shared and reciprocated by everyone there. Especially those who had been attending the book sale year after year. It was like a closely knitted family, brought together by the wholesome experience of exchanging their knowledge through texts and writings and passing it down to the next generation. I’d say that was what I enjoyed the most, and I’d love to come back next year to witness it all over again.” - DAKOTA CATON, 9 14
