Christmas Potluck What is the Christmas Potluck? The Christmas Potluck is a yearly get together of Division 11/18 . Keyclubbers and Kiwanians who attend bring some food to share with everyone. It’s a great bonding time for keyclubbers from different clubs.

Christmas Potluck Date: Dec. 12, 2012 Time: 6:00 PM Location: Abbotsford Senior Secondary

Abbotsford Senior Secondary Last month, Panthers Key Club was actively involved with UNICEF. Our primary goal was not only to raise money, (although we did raise some), rather it was to raise awareness about the living conditions in other countries. We went from class to class to spread the word about the goals for UNICEF for this year and telling them how they could help. It is our belief that students should be encouraged to take their own initiative to make a change, instead of having them follow someone else’s ideas. Our club hosted a bake sale on the 31 st in our school. It was very successful as it was a girls vs. guys bake sale, where the students bought stuff and voted on which team made the best baked goods. The guys won for creativity, while the girls won for overall taste. We also had a photo booth set up at our school’s dance where we also made some money. A lot of our members volunteered for the SAFF Canada Film Festival from October 31st – November 4th. This month, our main projects will be Write for Rights and the 24 hour Vow of Silence for Free the Children. -Sayeda Abbas

GW Graham Secondary During the month of October Solh Key Club was busy with new ideas and volunteering projects. Solh Key Club participated in many activities during the month of October such as Rice Raiser, Ruth and Naomi’s, a Baking Party, and a Halloween Party. Solh Key Club loves to participate in Rice Raiser monthly by selling baked goods, and this year instead of having members bring in things from home we are eliminating all costs for them and we bake them at the school with supplies bought by Solh Key Club. This month’s baking party was on 30th and baked goods were sold on the 30th. We had several members go and volunteer on the 5th at Ruth and Naomi’s. And we also had a pot luck Halloween Party on the 29th, instead of a meeting. Solh Key Club intends to continue to work on our SIGN project, Rice Raiser, Project Educate, Bell Ringing for Kiwanis, and a movie at Cotton Wood 4 Cinemas called Frankenweenie, please support us by purchasing a ticket ($10, comes with popcorn and a drink, @ Cotton Wood 4 Cinemas, @ 10 AM). If you are interested in buying tickets please email . I have so much gratitude for working with all of the wonderful members in the Solh Key Club. ~Alexis Baldwin

Yale Secondary

What a start to the year! With over 100 members, both new and old, we are off to a great beginning. We have already started a few projects, led by our very own members; they include SOS (Save Old Spectacles), Operation Christmas Child, and Love for Lilee (a bake sale in which over $300 was raised for a little girl suffering from cancer). Our recycling teams have already raised over $500 for donation and scholarships. For the community, our volunteers have eagerly helped out at the Rice Raiser and the Harvest Dance, which is a Halloween dinner and dance for mentally and physically disabled people. Later this month we will be helping out at the Food Bank, and in December we will be helping out at the Rice Raiser again. We have an overwhelming number of willing volunteers this year, and we can’t wait to see what’s in store! -Carol Kwon
