habitat restoration BY julie cao FROM bolsa grande high school On December 28, 2013, I volunteered to help Back to Natives at the Santiago Park Nature Reserve. It was, conclusively, a very tiring day. First of all, we had trouble getting there, because the directions were confusing. We eventually arrived and set off to work immediately. The wonderful coordinators instructed us to pull weeds. I had the opportunity to learn a lot of new things—who knew the clovers and bright, yellow flowers one used to pick as a kid were actually detrimental to native plants? I also got to bathe in plenty of intense sunlight. Moreover, we were required to walk a lot so the exercise was appreciated. After the weed-pulling activity, we had to plant blue-eyed grasses. I felt quite proud of my

little pot; I hope it gets to grow with health and vibrancy. Before we got to leave, we all took one grand photo to commemorate the event. I am glad that I got to help out and make a significant and positive change to the community.

Eisenhower Clean Up BY TIMOTHY VU FROM SANTIAGO HIGH SCHOOL I would like to start off saying what a wonderful staff Eisenhower has. They have the most bright and kind people working and are a pleasure to work for. They always invite us in with open arms and smiles reaching ear to ear! It was the teacher’s appreciation week so we were assigned to wipe clean the classroom desks, chairs, and doorknobs. They provided us with all the materials needed including gloves, towels, and cleaning spray. We took this advantage to help

the school as well as bond with our members. I was able to approach and introduce myself to several freshmen learning their names and getting to know them. They were shy at first but after working side by side with them we got along perfectly. When we finished we were thanked by all the teachers and staff that were in the classrooms and it filled my heart with joy. I am really looking forward to working with them again in the future!

DECEMBER DCM

BY JEFFREY VUONG FROM GARDEN GROVE high school

BY JENNY NGUYEN FROM BOLSA GRANDE high school

This Division Council Meeting was the last one of the year 2013, except this time it was with two other divisions: 4 East and 4 West. This was the best turnout for my club, in terms of attendance and placement in the spirit battle that our lieutenant governor, Tommy hosts at each DCM. My club had 30 members attend. My club and I prepared 3 cheers for the spirit competition against the other nine clubs in our Division. We successfully made it to the 3rd and last round, but we unfortunately lost. Later we had a number of divisional activities; there was a Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest, and White Elephant Gift Exchange. Afterwards we wrote letters which were to be sent to soldiers. This event overall was a great experience for my members. They really enjoyed it and felt motivated to become even more active with service in this new year.

On Saturday, December 28th, I attended another DCM, also known as a Division Council Meeting. It was hosted at Fountain Valley Recreational Center once again, but this time, it was with Division 4 West and Division 4 East. It wasn’t as organized or warm as I had hoped, but I still met a lot of nice people! During the DCM, our very own tech editor, Jacquelyn Do, won Officer of the Month for the month of November. In my opinion, she definitely deserved it. I always wondered why she never received it before. Moreover, I was very proud of my home club for successfully passing the first round of the spirit session against the other schools in my division; we mixed one of the division cheers with a Christmas carol. As a service project, members from three divisions made cards with construction paper and markers for CHOC hospital patients and veterans. Our next DCM will be interesting, for it will be at Conclave in January.
