Monthly Message from your Div. 5 Lt. Governor: Hope Carter
Hello Division 5! It’s me again :). Now that I have introduced myself in the last newsletter I will start giving a quick update here about what goes on in Key Club. First off, I want to let you know that Key Club is one of the best parts of my life and I am so blessed to be your Lt. Governor. I love helping you all in making your key clubs better! Additionally, if you have an event or meeting I would love to come so just let me know about it and I’ll be there. Besides helping your clubs I am a committee member on the Governor’s project in out T-O district. This year's governors project is to Stomp out bullying in Texas and Oklahoma and I am truly honored to be apart of this project. There will be more info. about this soon because I plan to make this my divisional project as well. So be aware of that upcoming info. Also, I know that everything won’t always be peachy so if you run into problems, want to talk about key club, or need anything at all I can be reached at any time at my phone (text/call 210-279-5444), email (email@example.com), or through facebook (let me know if you are not on the division 5 Fb page). I am here for you all and I can’t wait to grow as a division and meet you all! Although this is a bit silly each month I will put some facts about me here so you all can get to know me. So here goes haha... -My favorite color is navy blue but lately I like burgundy a lot to. -I have an addiction to glitter, stickers, and sharpies. -My dog is my favorite animal.
1) Hold at least two interclub fundraisers to send Division 5 to DCON this upcoming April 2014. -I plan to complete this goal by the end of August and the fundraisers will either be garage sales or car washes that the clubs can work together on to raise the money. 2) Make sure that I have contacted every officer and collect the correct contact information from every officer. -I plan to do this by contacting officers on the weekends by means of communication that works for them and to emphasize the importance of checking emails. 3) Have at least one fun social between all the clubs in the division. -I plan to do this by contacting different venues and seeing which is best to have an awesome social with all the key clubbers in the division. 4) Attend a planning meeting with every club this summer so the school year runs smoothly. -I plan to carry this out by contacting each club and scheduling a meeting where plans will be made and officers will understand their responsibilities.

Bored this summer? Visit your Kiwanis! -Our sponsoring Kiwanis Clubs have meetings just like key club does and it is important to try and go at least a couple of times so that you make a connection with the people who are here to help you. They love when you come so see my attached Kiwanis meeting days and try and go to a meeting. Also, if you are nervous to go by yourself I would love to come with you because I am familiar with them. Trouble with finding events during the year? Plan this summer!! -It is very important to meet with the officers in your club at least once or twice throughout the summer so that the school year runs smoothly and you know what direction your headed. You can hold a meeting at a local fast food restaurant or an officerâ€™s house. Also, I would love to come to your planning meeting and help you plan your year!
