Division 38 West Newsletter Volume 2 | Issue 3 | August 2011

A Letter from the Editor Greetings Robots! For many of us, school has already started, and that means that many of us are busier than ever. I personally would like to encourage you all to do your best and try not to overexert yourselves! Division 38 West needs you all to be at the top of your game for service projects and spirit events such as Fall Rally South! And because the new school year has started, that means that new people will have to recruited into Key Club and dues will have to be paid! Invite people to board meetings and especially general meetings, and be sure to remind the old members as well as the new ones to pay their dues so that you club can get a patch for early bird dues! Also be certain to invite the new freshmen to meetings and events as well! The lower classmen are the future of Key Club. As people graduate and leave, it is up to them to carry on and build upon what we did as officers and active Key Clubbers. Remember to always set a good example for your fellow Key Clubbers and help them transition from being a passive observer and follow to a servant leader!

Introducing the New...

Executive Assistant Hey Division 38 West! I hope everyone's school year has started off on a good note! My name is Rashika Choudhary, and I'm your new Executive Assistant! I currently attend Quartz Hill as a Junior, and am looking forward to having a worthwhile and successful year with everyone! Being Quartz Hill High School's Key Club Secretary as well as the Division's E.A. is a big commitment and responsibility that I will put my heart and soul into, because Key Club is something I have a passion for and enjoy being a part of. Aside from school and Key Club, I enjoy reading, drinking green tea, dancing, drawing, traveling, and writing. Being a Key Clubber is something that has changed my high school experience and my life in general. Division 38 West has become like a second family to me, rather than simply "a club," because we all genuinely care for each other. We all work together and help out our community one service project at a time, while creating memories and have fun at the same time. With that said, I am easy to talk to and very open to others, and I'd really love to get to know the rest of the D38W family! Key Club is always close to my heart, and I love being part of it. I am definitely looking forward to spending this year with everyone, creating memories, having fun, and most importantly participating in service projects! I know we can all accomplish great things this year, and I will personally do my best to work with our Divisional board, Kiwanis advisors, as well as Club boards and members! If anyone has any questions, concerns, help, or simply needs someone to talk to, please don't hesitate to talk to me, and don't feel restricted to talking to me only about Key Club! I am easy to reach and usually pretty fast when it comes to responding to others. Email: Cell: 661.400.9094 Add me on FB if you haven’t already!

Mark Your Calendars!

Event Updates OTC/September DCM The date of the Officer Training Conference (OTC) has been changed to Saturday, September 10th, 2011. The official location of the event is currently to be determined, but your LTG will announce it by next week. It will still be from 10 am to 2 pm. 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. The general membership is also highly encouraged to come, especially if they are active members or wish to run for office next year. Aside from board member workshops, there will also be workshops regarding Key Club 101, fundraising, spirit, how to run for office, and service projects. There will be a DCM during OTC, in which we will discuss divisional news. Food and drinks will be provided as well, so bring as many people as you can and advertise!

Duck Race The 6th annual Antelope Valley Kiwanis Duck Race will start at 6 pm on Saturday, September 17th, 2011 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!

Remember that each school needs an advisor to accompany them to sleep over.
