President's Howl! Hello Thunderpups! I very much wish I can speak to you individually to inspire you to become more active in Key Club, but there's so little time to do everything. I feel as if my term is ending so quickly. I also feel as if I haven't done much, but remember pups, every little thing counts to make a change, so use every opportunity you can! I love working you guys and I definitely love to see new faces. Just as simple as seeing new faces brightens up my day. Hopefully you can find that little something in Key club that will spark the happiness inside you. Well, we're on the right path pups, we're just going to have to make our way through efficiently. Bye my lovelies!! - Benjamin Franklin Key Club President Aljelen Paraiso

THE ARTICLES! Submitted by YOU, the Members! My name is Aljelen Paraiso and I'm Benjamin Franklin's Key Club President. One of the events I attended during the month of September was the LA River Clean-up. The event happened to be a division council meeting, which makes it all the more merrier to volunteer. I've never seen the LA River, but once I did, I realized how some people treat, not only the river, but the environment so poorly. Maybe I'm mistaking the moss as dirty water, but regardless of that, there were many glass bottles shattered around the area. I couldn't believe it, but knowing that I helped clean the river was something to be proud of because if no one is going to do it, who? So it was an amazing feeling to know that you helped reduce pollution and made the community a much more safer environment for everyone else. -Aljelen Paraiso, President

We had the Los Angeles River Clean Up which was an amazing event where almost 300 members showed up and help clean the river. Picking up trash despite how hot it was or how much work there was they did it with a smile on their face and with spirit. So many key clubbers have come together to make a change and also learn about other ways they can make a change. - Jade Archuleta, Division Secretary

Hey guys! My name is Winny Chen and I attended Zumba for the month of September. About 5 people attended this event. The event was located at the Emmanuel Church around Korea Town, I believe. We started off by decorating the area inside and organized shirts, food, water, and balloons. We had to blow up so many balloons, it was hectic. I even had a difficult time handling all the balloons! But eventually, we finished decorating and the DJ started playing music. People began arriving and Zumba class began! Many of us danced along with everyone and had a blast! It was a really good work out and the food was delicious. We served yogurt with topping, frozen fruits, water, and granola bars to everyone while they had their break. After the event ended, a few people came over to our stand and bought shirts. We had clean and put away tables and pop the balloons. It was honestly a very fun and wild experience! It was my first time doing Zumba and I guarantee you that I will attend the same event next year! -Winny Chen, Historian

The month of September had some big events which were Region Training Conference where many new faces and old members came to learn about key club, leadership, and spirit. The most memorable part was the session when the LTGs talked about how one wave starts change. This is where one member donated a single dollar and everyone else began to donate. -Jade Archuleta, Division Secretary

OFFICER RECOGNITION! For the month of September, the officer of the month is our sergeant at arms, Jeffrey Escano! Jeffrey is on our school’s dance team. Aside from receiving thousands of applauds for his extremely talented skills, Jeffrey has a tremendous amount of responsibility when dealing with a large group of key clubbers at a meeting. He is greatly respected for his generosity towards others. Every meeting, he makes sure that every member receives a copy of an updated calendar, which contains important dates of upcoming events. He alerts members when our president is speaking in order for them to be attentive about significant information that is being delivered. Aside from taking care of members during every meeting, Jeffrey takes care of everyone at every event. He encourages members to attend as many events as they can in order to gain memorable experiences. Jeffrey likes to carry his camera; he enjoys taking pictures of members working, smiling, and having fun. He shares his experiences with others so that they can be a part of the big Key Club family. When recruiting new members, he asserts to others that he should have joined Key Club in the beginning of his freshman year because he would have fell in love with the club earlier. Jeffrey shares his amazing experiences with others about volunteering, assisting the school and community, and making new friends. By being sergeant at arms, Jeffrey demonstrates that he is capable of educating others about the importance of Key Club, whether it’s giving back to the community, setting up booths, or having fun with other members; he takes the initiative to guide members towards a path of success.

MEMBER RECOGNITION! For the month of October, our member of the month is Mark Ingcoco! Mark is one of our new members. He is part of Franklin’s dance team and dubstep group. He attends almost every event and demonstrates great eagerness to volunteer. Mark is definitely an active member ever since the school year started. Although Mark is a new member, he has been participating in club activities during the summer break. He has been to Galco’s Tasting Event, our Scavenger Hunt, every Braille event, and much more! Mark is kindhearted; he helps everyone as much as he possibly can, even when he has his own duties in hands and offers friendly assistance after completing his assignments. Mark always has a glow on his face in which sparkles his devotion for service. He definitely convinced others that he is serious about Key Club; he is present in every meeting and attends every club and division events. Mark attended Region 7 Training Conference and has inevitably fallen in love with Key Club. By going to RTC, he establishes a fashionable passion for service, leadership, and mainly everything about Key Club. He always finds time to participate in events and takes responsibility in his duties. In all circumstances that involve heavy duty lifting or severe set up in booths, Mark would be the one who voluntarily lends a hand. He is a perfect example for other new members because he is undoubtedly a hardworking and passionate member.
