Words from the LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR Hello Division 66, School is back in session! It’s sad to see all the fun moments we had this summer come to an end, but the school year is a great time to create many more memories through service. Thank you to everyone who dedicated his or her time to Key Club when school wasn’t in session. Even though school can be a busy time, please don’t stop with all the acts of kindness that you all do for the community. Let’s make the most out of each opportunity to continuously inspire and make a difference in your community and people’s lives. From service to long-lasting friends Key Club has everything you need. I’d love the chance to come visit your club meetings or service projects. Please feel free to contact me with the latest information about your clubs. September is the time your club will be recruiting new club members, telling them about memberships dues, and providing many service opportunities for Key Clubbers to take advantage of. Best of luck with the 2013-2014 school year. I hope to see you all at the September DCM. In love and service, Emilee Huey


Words from the DIVISIONAL EDITOR Hello Key Clubbers! Summer has come to an end, and school has returned. I hope you all enjoyed a relaxing summer with a little bit of service on the side. The beginning of a new school year is the ideal time to recruit new members. Take this time to spark interest in new and old members in your school. Make meetings fresh (See Meeting Ideas pages) and keep your members engaged with many service projects. In addition, this is a great opportunity to start on a clean slate and try something different. Whether you hope to start a new event or establish a new system of running your club, now is an ideal time to start. I hope to see you all at the next DCM where we can get together, discuss ideas, and have fun! In caring service,

Brain Le

Reminder! How to earn “spots”:  Keep in communication with me (email, phones calls, texts, ect.)  Attend monthly DCMs & PCMs  Your club or Key Clubbers gets highlighted in my newsletter  Being an active club  Being the first to respond to emails or updates  Meet all deadlines


Good Luck to all the schools during the month of September. Remember, the school with the most points at the end will receive a special prize.

KEY CLUB MEETING IDEAS Ice Breakers Playing ice breakers are a great way to get new people to come together and play fun games, while breaking the tense atmosphere. Ice Breakers can range from bang to the human knot.

PowerPoint or Slide Show Having a visual aid is a way to get the attention off of you because people are looking at the visual aid. Visual aids are great for you to show pictures and text so people can see in case they can’t hear what you say.

Incentives To get people to come to meetings you can use Incentives such as, food or giving out service hours. People are more likely to come to a meeting if they know that they will be getting something out of it.

Club Member of the Month You can offer awards to Key Clubbers to make them feel like they are being included in what is going on. It shows recognition of the accomplishments they have completed throughout that past month.
