GREETINGS Hello, my fellow Awkward Turtles! I hope you all are all having a great summer vacation so far! I know I have. I’ve been busy planning events such as Portland Rally and the Seaside Beach Clean-up! Though we are out for the summer, that doesn’t mean we stop volunteering. There are plenty of places and local organizations to volunteer for! Whether it be a church mission in a foreign country to build homes, or volunteering at your local food bank, I strongly urge you to take some time out of your break and donate some hours to bettering our world.

Summer is also prime time for divisional bonding. I strongly encourage you to come out to the next divisional project and the DCM. Not only will you learn more about key club WHILE having fun, you will also meet people from other schools in our division. Whatever you do this summer, don’t become inactive. Summer should be the most active time of the year. I hope you’re all enjoying your summer. I hope to see your faces at the next Divisional event! Keep being fly, division 65!

In

Love and Service,

Christon Senekham PAGE 4

At Portland Rally, attendees gathered bearing divisional spirit and pride. The day was filled with fun, spirit, and icebreakers. Officers received formal officer training led by the Executive District Board. The rally was about Lighting up the World with Service, and that’s what happened. At Portland Rally, we raised a Grand Total of $1,497.59 for the Eliminate Project—enough to vaccinate 832 mothers and their future children from acquiring the deadly disease of Maternal/Neonatal Tetanus. Thanks to all the Awkward Turtles who made the journey out to Tualatin to attend the Rally. Hope you had a great time!

We won the spirit stick! Water Balloon Fight?

CLUB SPOTLIGHT LIBERTY HIGH SCHOOL

Liberty is making quite an appearance within our division. Only a few weeks ago, I got in contact with Jamie, the president about getting Liberty Chartered. The board for Liberty is very hopeful, and dedicated to getting the club its charter. Recently, Liberty had it’s first introductory meeting with 18 people in attendance and also a potential faculty advisor. Our division will be holding the Carwash to help Liberty raise funds to get its charter. Great work, Liberty!

Kiwanis and Key Clubbers got the opportunity to mingle with each other all while improving Kfamily relations! The pancake breakfast is one of the Kiwanis Club of Hillsboro’s largest fundraisers. Key clubbers helped cooked and served food while having a great time. Thanks to those who volunteered!
