“HEY… what is ICON?”
Let’s learn about.. International Convention!
The Key Club International convention (‘ICON’) occurs annually in July. In 2013, the convention will last from July 3-7. The purpose of the convention is to elect the international officers, review accomplishments of the past year and set policies for the coming year. New programs are announced and national speakers participate. This year, our lovely LTG, Jacqueline Tsang, will be attending ICON on behalf of our division! Make sure to wish her well for the upcoming trip :]
t MEMBER OF THE MONTH OFFICER OF THE MONTH
CLUB OF THE MONTH
Keeko has been incredibly dedicated and has shown a lot of spirit in everything he does. He has attended every meeting for this month and is always happy to be there as well. He was one of two attendees for Peanut Day in which he helped collect donations for project Eliminate. He helped raise in total $600 with our fellow Kiwanis, thus I am very proud to make Keeko the Member of the Month.
Verdugo Hills KC grew so much as a club in our short time and we thanks to Thaniel We are a small school and people tend to underestimate us, but he went out of his way to prove to the people that they were wrong. We were able to get so far with his motivations and help. During the busy finals and AP month, our president contributed whatever time he had left over in order to plan and make sure his ideas and goals were carried out. He was troubled by the stress he received but did not stop and pushed forward putting his duties and the club in front of him. Always generous and willing to help out, his reputation precedes him as a leader dedicated to service.
In the month of May, La Canadaâ€™s Key Club stood out with their continued dedication to service to their community and unmatched member participation, despite the intimidating testing season. One of their highlight events, Peanut Day not only raised over $300 for ELIMINATE but was also inclusive of their Kiwanis family. With a combination of officer and member diligence, LC has shown us their perseverance and love for Key Club in a truly hectic month.
congratulations to all divisional award winners for the month of May; keep up the great work! â™Ľthe D3N leadership team

taste of downtown clark magnet key club
Taste of Downtown in Glendale was a great event to be a part of. There was music for pretty much the whole time across the street, and a lot of interesting food. At first when I arrived the coordinators assigned me a restaurant, gave me a volunteer shirt and I became friends with a few students from Hoover High School. There were many different types including Chinese and Thai food... (Which I ended up loving the most) that were offered for free in a friendly way. I would definitely go to this event to volunteer next year because it’s fun (and there’s free food!). —Elizabeth Abramyan, Bulletin Editor
memorial day run
crescenta valley key club
On Memorial Day, Key Clubbers had the opportunity to participate in the La Cañada Memorial Day Walk/ Run. Our jobs included taking the time of runners as they passed mile markers, giving medals to kids who completed the Family Fun Run, and passing water to those who completed the tremendous 5k. Some lucky members were able to see the way the kids’ faces lit up as they found out they would be receiving a medal. The kids were very grateful and anyone there could just tell how much the medals and the experience meant to them. Once the runs had been completed for the day, the Key Club volunteers had an opportunity to talk and bond at the end. It was definitely worth it to wake up at 6 o’clock in the summer. —Cole Lauterback, Historian

la canada key club
May 6th marked the beginning of Eliminate Week, a week dedicated to raising funds and awareness for the Eliminate Project. Due to it clashing with the beginning of AP testing, most members were not able to participate in Eliminate Week. Most people were up to their necks in study material. However, a total of $22.20 was raised. All these funds were raised by four very dedicated freshman: Jenny Lee, Emma Gale, Cindy Salazar, and Janet Paz. The fact the money was raised means a lot. Lives will be saved thanks to their efforts. â€”Helen Ha, VH Bulletin Editor
weâ€™ll miss you, seniors! The Senior Appreciation Day was an event where we decided to honor our very own Key Club seniors who enjoyed hands-on service and helped the community and the club to thrive in tremendous ways. On behalf of the club, I produced certificates for that special day. The four individuals, who were rewarded, received those certificates and a yellow Key Club sash to wear for their graduation. The day we gave it to those four individuals, smiles were brought onto their faces and we knew that we had done something that meant the world to them. Now that the school year has ended, we would like to wish them luck and a great many years ahead. â€”Alyssa Gallano, VC Bulletin Editor
