Character Building


Update from Brad... I am so excited to serve as your LTG for the next term. I've already been through the hazing of the District Board (pictured below), so I'm ready and prepared to take over. I will be coming around for club visits next month (after DCON) to connect and meet each club's newly elected board members! A couple things I'm sure of (other than being fabulous): • My newsletters will be the bomb. Get ready for fun, artistic monthly newsletters that will help keep your club in the loop of district/divisional news! • I will continue the regular club visits (I'll also bring cookies and other baked goods to these!) • Continue the outpour of membership recruitment resources all well as Eliminate resources. • As a division, we'll definitely connect more with other divisions! (through service projects, rallies, etc.)

Divisional News Things are changing for us! For one, we are moving around the schools with our sister division (Divison 42 OR). This is because of how far certian clubs are away from the incoming LtGs. So, as of the next term, Division 42 WA will consist of six clubs: Ral, Kelso, TRCS, Toutle lake, St. Helens, and CCEC. We can no longer hold the name Divisons 42 WA because of this switch (St. Helens and CCEC are in Oregon), so we will be changing that title as well. We can change it to pretty much anything, so please contact me if you have any ideas! (right now we're thinking of naming it Division 42 Coastal vs. Inland?). Contact me with any ideas you have!

Make sure to order your Divisional T-shirt in the next week. Orders with money can be mailed to me at: 1709 24th ave.

I would like to apologize for the cancellation of last month's DCM. This was due to the lastminute cancellation of the room we were going to hold it in (it got double booked). Thank you for understanding. Brad will now be holding the "Game Show" DCM in the month of May. Follow his upcoming newsletter for more details (look for it next month! It will also be full of DCON pictures and District news!)

Longview, WA 98632 We have received 1,328 registrations for DCON! For those who are going, this is what you need to expect:


→ You'll have a blast. Period. No question about that. → It will be held in at the Seattle Sheraton Hotel and the Washington State Convention Center so be prepared to explore Seattle. → There will be a show performance by Joseph Vincent, look him up on YouTube, you won't regret it. → You're gonna have to make some tough decisions.. Like which forums to go to... Should you go to Yoga or Dancing 101? → make sure to bring comfortable shoes, especially for the dance on Saturday night. → Little sleep. Long days filled with as much fun as humanely possible. → Bring all types of clothes, business causal, causal, and spirit gear. You're gonna wear all of it. → Try to get some new ideas to bring back to your clubs. Go to the Service Fair or a forum on fundraising ideas!


"I'm beyond excited to go to DCON this year. This is my first year going and I know that I'll have a blast. I'm pretty much already packed, I brought my twerking pants, my divisional spirit gear, and a friendly attitude, so I should fit right in." -Bradlee Thielen, member of RAL Key Club
