HAPPY SUMMER DIVISION 38 WEST OWLS! Lt. Governor Cecilia here speaking to congratulate you all on a great year and hoping for a BEE-autiful, sunny summer with you all! I hope testing season went great for all of you and that you are now free of any stress! And what better way than to start off your summer? Hanging out with your fellow Division 38 West fabulous members of course! 4 months of the 2013-2014 term have gone by already, and boy does time sure go by fast! However, since the month of March, I couldn't be happier serving all of you. Already we have raised a substantial amount of money and served for Project Eliminate, Pediatric Trauma Program, Project Jump Start and I thank all of you for contributing so far. We all still have 8 more months to go until the end of this term. 8 more months to reach our division goals, help reach our district goals, create fun-filled memories, raise for many causes, cherish our time with our members, and serve until we can't serve any more. Man, how eventful and fun the rest of the year will be. I also want to say that even though it is summer, Key Club does not end here, there are many opportunities for all of you to participate in, so I hope all of you are ready to get your hands dirty! Remember to always think of ideas on how to better serve your club and to help them the best way you can. L-O-V-E, I LOVE MY D-I-V!

ARTICLES AND VISUALS OSCAR AVINA SHARES HIS EXPERIENCE AT OTC 1) What was your favorite part of OTC? My favorite part of the Officer Training Conference was learning more information about being a president 2) Did you meet any new people at OTC? I did in fact meet about three new people at the event 3) What has OTC inspired you to do next year? What I would like to do this year is to recruit twice as many active members in my school's club then we had last year, and participate in many events that Key club has to offer, but most importantly, I want to leave a lasting legacy that will inspire the next president of my school's club.

KESLSEY RIVEROL AT THE CARWASH Hey Owls! My name is Kelsey Riverol and I am a proud Key Club member of Highland High School! So I recently went to the car wash that we held and it was a lot of fun! I really enjoyed washing cars with my fellow members and being out there with them really made us closer as a part of Key Club. The event turned out to be a real success and everyone had a great time! I am definitely looking forward to future events! - Kelsey Riverol

ARTICLES AND VISUALS DANIELLE GALLI’S BEE-UTIFUL DAY Highland High School’s Key Club just had their summer carwash on June 8th, 2013 in the Vons parking lot. The carwash was a very fun event that allowed Key Club members to bond, help the community, and raise money for a wonderful cause. I had an amazing time working beside fellow Key Clubbers and serving the community, making it a BEE-utiful day spent with friends. Key clubbers who attended this event enjoyed the company of their fellow Key Club members, listened to music, and of course, WASHED CARS! This carwash was very successful and we were able to raise a little over $250 for PTP and Project Eliminate. I am looking forward to participating with my club and division again in other community service, fundraising, and social events. - Danielle Galli

KIM MA ON OFFICER TRAINING CONFERENCE 1) What was your favorite part about OTC? My favorite part of OTC was learning new things that I would be able to do for my club, along with being able to make myself a better member of Key Club. 2) Did you meet anyone new? I met new members from Sherman Burroughs, East Side, Little rock, and Desert Sands. 3) What did you learn at OTC? At OTC, I learned how to become a better public speaker thanks to Susan Chor's workshop. I also learned more about my position as Vice President and what I could do to help my club. 4) Is there anything else you would like to say about OTC? OTC was a fun yet informative experience and I can't wait for next year's! - Kim Ma

ARTICLES AND VISUALS FANTA SINAYOKO’S FIRST TIME AT OTC 1. What was OTC like for you? As a first timer attending the OTC, I felt that this year definitely set my bar high for future years. There were plenty of food for all, and one of the best parts were meeting and getting to know the officers of our division who were very open, and friendly; however the best part for me was definitely learning the various new chants for this year, including the chants for our new mascot the OWLS! 2. What have the workshops taught you? Since I am a Tech Editor, going to the workshops has exposed me to many other key club each Editors around our division. I got to know many of them individually and since we were all in the same position they were very easy to socialize and get along with. Outside of the workshops the ice breakers also aided in getting to know other fellow key clubbers easily, and of course the chants helped break the ice as well. 3. What have you learned from OTC? I have learned a massive amount of information about key club and my officer position. I have not realized how aged Key Club truly is and how it has emerged from a small all boys club to an international club with members from all backgrounds and a large amount of service and fundraising money yearly. I have also not realized the impact the small fundraisers we do has on the world. As an officer I have learned a tremendous amount of useful and helpful tips on my position. 4. What was the best part about OTC? Everything: the chants, the icebreakers, and even the workshops were A LOT of fun. The environment was extremely energy filled during the chants and, the leaders of the workshops had so much spirit that they wanted to convey to us. They were all enthusiastic about the subjects that they wanted to teach us and we would be rewarded with candy, which kept us thoroughly engaged throughout the workshops. The icebreakers were inclusive of all its participants and it was overall amazing - Fanta Sinayoko

MEMBER OF THE MONTH Can I get an OH YEAH for Alexandra Jonassen!?!

T he

Pediatric Trauma Progra Program m

What is PTP? The Pediatric Trauma Program was established by the Kiwanis Cali - Nev - Ha Foundation in 1994, focusing on the needs for education and training in injury prevention and pediatric trauma. Their mission statement is Ęşto develop local projects, which will reduce the number of children in our district who are killed or injured by trauma.Ęş The leading cause of death among children ages 14 and under in the United States is pediatric trauma, or unintentional injury. Every year, more children die from easily be preventable pediatric trauma than all childhood diseases combined!

What Can I Do To Help? You can help your club and the division provide awareness and prevent pediatric trauma by making sure the community is educated on safety and any possible hazards, having a donation drive on items such as bicycle helmets and child safety seats, and much, much more! You can also assist the children that were involved in trauma by collecting items of comfort, such as stuffed animals and blankets, to donate. You can even make cards to help cheer up the children!

Project

E L I M I N AT E

A birth of a newborn is a joyous event in any lifetime. However, in 38 different countries, that amazing event can quickly turn into a tragedy. With the YOU Eliminate Project, Kiwanis InternaARE READY TO HELP? tional and UNICEF have joined forces to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. This deadly disease takes the life of one baby every nine minutes — nearly 60,000 innocent babies every year. That’s 60,000 babies a year that will never grow up, play with friends, hear their mother’s laugh, or even dream about their future. A significant number of women also die due to maternal tetanus. The effects of the disease are excruciating — tiny newborns suffer repeated, painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch. Learn more about The Eliminate Project at www.TheEliminateProject.org.

District Project PROJECT JUMP START Last year, the California-Nevada-Hawaii District began a new district project: Project Jump Start. This 2-year project is geared towards providing children from ages 0-5 a jump start during the most crucial years of an infant’s life. Project Jump Start is a great way to give back to your communities and give infants the jump start they need to succeed, one baby step at a time. The potential of Division 38 West is more than enough to make an impact on our communities through Project Jump Start. Project Jump Start allows children to have a successful childhood, and to one day grow to be competent, caring leaders like each and every one of us are today. By providing this support to young children, we are giving them the opportunity to grow and become strong-willed individuals. Not only does this project affect our communities, but it goes as far as to provide a benefit to children internationally. By focusing on children’s education, health, safety, and wellbeing – we will be giving children all around the world equal opportunities to have a fresh and vibrant beginning, a jump start. Now here’s the fun part: how to get involved. Simply, by finding a project, or even better, making your own. Working with local organizations is a great way to get involved in the District Project. Even Key Club International’s service partners: UNICEF, Children’s Miracle Network, and March of Dimes support our objectives in Project Jump Start. The amounts of service projects are endless, so what are you waiting for? I’m looking forward to hearing about your club participating in Project Jump Start. By submitting articles, visuals, and a description of your project to Sushiel Kangakar at d38w.cnhkc.divnews@gmail.com, you have a chance to be spotlighted on the CNH Cyberkey for the whole district to see your involvement in the District Project. Subjects in any visuals you submit must sign a photo release form, which can be found on the Cyberkey. Together, Division 38 West can make an impact: one baby step at a time.
