Volume 2 | Issue 2 | July 2011

A Letter from the Editor Greetings Robots! I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July! Hopefully some of you were able to work with your Kiwanians in the firework booths and had fun with your friends and family. Summer is the time where we make our fondest memories with those closest to us. But remember that though people may not always remember your words, they will always remember your actions. While summer is a great time to relax and have fun, it is also a great time to give back to your community and serve! Go outside and fundraise and serve with your community; organize a car wash with your club; have a garage sale; volunteer at the nursing home or hospital. There are hundreds upon hundreds of things you can do to benefit yourselves, your clubs, and your communities. Also, don’t forget to submit articles to the newsletter about your fundraising and volunteer experiences or if you just want to talk about how much you love Key Club! The newsletter’s purpose is to connect and provide communication for all you Key Clubbers!

“Caring Our Way of Life”

Programmed for Service, Victor Ly Divisional Technology Editor

CNH District | Region 5 | Division 38 West


Member Articles Q: What does Key Club mean to you? What does Key Club mean to me, you ask? Well, let me tell you. Many people think of Key Club as just a volunteer service club, or just a club that will help you get to what you want in life. Yes, that is true. But, to me, Key Club means so much more than that. Key Club knows no discrimination, knows no hatred, and knows no limits. We will take in anyone from homeless to rich, stingy to caring, jerks to idols, you name it. Whatever you may be or have done in the past, we will not judge you nor discriminate against you. To me, Key Club is a second family. The feeling of inclusiveness. The feeling of being wanted. The feeling of you making an impact in the world. Key Club isn't JUST a club. Key Club is family.

Event Updates OTC

Duck Race

Officer Training Conference (OTC) is currently scheduled to be on Saturday, September 17th, 2011. This event will take place from 10 am to 12 pm at the Palmdale Boy’s and Girl’s Club. It is important that all members, especially board officers, attend OTC as this is where you will be receiving training on how to fulfill your role as your club officers. Aside from board member workshops, there will also be workshops regarding Key Club 101, fundraising, spirit, and service projects.

The 6th annual Antelope Valley Kiwanis Duck Race will start at 6 pm on Saturday, September 17th, 2011 (Yes, this is the same day as the DCM!) at Dry Town in Palmdale. Key Clubbers should attend this event not only as volunteers but as supporters of Kiwanis. Our Kiwanians support us in everything we do, so it follows that we should help out the members of our K-family. If you want to earn service hours and have fun with your friends, be sure to attend the Duck Race!

August DCM The August DCM’s date has not been finalized yet, but it is planned to take place at Mulligan’s in early-mid August. Division 38 West will be reserving a party room, but that means that lots of Key Clubbers have to attend this DCM. Be prepared to come once the date is finalized!

Get those creative minds thinking!
