Monthly Message from your Div.5 Lt. Governor: Hope Carter

Hello my Lovely Key Clubbers! I absolutely loved this month and helping y’all get the year started! Seeing all the clubs put in all this hard work makes my heart happy. With that being said, we got to continue our strong start, bring in members, and retain them! I sent emails on promoting your club, how to have a good first meeting, and start to the year! Use these and me as a resource. I know division 5 can be the strongest it’s ever been if we do so! Also, please please please understand the importance of the Fall Training Conference! If you cannot attend I understand but it will have to be made up by Nov. 14th if that is the case. I promise it will be lots of fun! See y’all soon and stay in

communication. Yours in service,

Hope Carter

Fact of the month: I joined Key Club my sophomore year of H.S. and have loved it ever since!

Here is the agenda for conferences this 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. 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. These contribute to Key Clubbin’ Correspondence awards (KCC Awards) so please participate. 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? -How did your first meeting go? or What are your plans for the first meeting? -Do you want to work towards DCON? -Do you understand the importance of FTC? -Are you aware of the dues collection and turn-in process? -Are you participating in the YOF? -Do you want to help with the divisional project? Does your club have interest? -What can I do for you?

ELIMINATE In my last newsletter I told everyone about the Eliminate project so this month I have a challenge…

I want each club to try and raise at least $250 plus dollars toward eliminate all the way till DCON at the end of April. If we can do that we would raise $3000 dollars as a division for Eliminate and save $1666 babies and their mothers! I promise to help along the way! Be on the lookout for ideas to raise money for the project. I will post mini ideas here each month.

This month’s idea… Create a piggy bank to raise funds for eliminate that people can drop money in at your meetings. You could even have a drawing and those who donate could be entered to win a prize! Shout out to Bandera for the lovely eliminate jar they made!
