Monthly Message from your Div.5 Lt. Governor: Hope Carter
Hello my Lovely Key Clubbers! I had an awesome month filled with lots of Key Club. I attended Summer Board with the rest of the district staff and lieutenant governors which was an absolute blast. We planned some for DCON and have chosen the theme! It will be revealed to you all soon and I can’t wait! I also visited my Kiwanis a lot this month and went to a planning meeting with Johnson High School. I love meeting with y’all so let me know when I can visit. Also, we have a lot coming up so remember to stay in touch with me and keep checking e-mails because FTC, Dues collection, and much more is coming up super quick!! Yours in service,
I was honored to receive top 10 Lt. Governor at Summer Board. I truly appreciate your support in this. I can’t do it without YOU!
I’ve decided to have monthly phone conferences with all club presidents by phone each month because of the success I had with the past month. Each president should email me a date and time that is good for a conference by the 20th of each month. If you have not emailed me by that date I will start calling. I want to have a conference with each president by the 31st of each month. Every month I’ll put the conference agenda right here. I promise calls won’t last long and I just want to do this so that there is a stream of communication with all of my clubs. Agenda -How are you? -How are officers, advisors, and Kiwanis working together? -Does your club send in reports and newsletters? -Have you updated contact info. on TO website? -Are you ready for the upcoming school year as far as Key Club goes? -Do you want to work towards DCON? -Do you understand the importance of FTC? -Are you aware of dues collection and turn-in? -What service projects do you plan to work on? -What can I do for you?

What’s the District Project? The district project this year is to raise funds to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. This deadly disease steals the lives of nearly 60,000 innocent babies and a significant number of women each year. The effects of the disease are excruciating — tiny newborns suffer painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch. For just $1.80 you can vaccinate a woman and her future babies! Start raising money for Eliminate now! Look for the project ideas I send out as well!
What’s the Governors project? This year’s governor project is to spread antibullying awareness around Texas and Oklahoma. Each month I will start sending idea sheets to help you spread anti bullying awareness around your school! Soon we will also have the official Governor’s project completion form ready so that you can show the district what you did to spread awareness!
