Welcome Hello all! Congratulations for completing first semester! We are now officially halfway done with the school year. As many of you know, the DCON materials have been released. Begin looking to see if you will be attending, and I know that I would love to see you all there. Please talk to either your club officers or myself for more information. I would like to extend my heartfelt congratulations to all of the upcoming club officers and Christina Chow, our LTG elect for Division 44. I cannot wait to see all the wonderful things you will do in our clubs, schools, and our communities. However, there were also many members that were unable to become elected. I am humbled by your courage and commitment to serve in Key Club, and I encourage you to continue this service. In Service and Caring, Ernie Tao

Divisional Info What is Key Club?

Key Club International is the oldest and largest service program for high school students. It is a student-led organization that teaches leadership through service to others. Members of the Kiwanis International family, Key Club members build themselves as they build their schools and communities.

Who are we? We are the Beastly Butterflies of Division 44! Our Division is comprised of six key clubs including Camas, Evergreen, Fort Vancouver, Union, Mountain View, and Heritage.

The district that we belong to, The Pacific Northwest District is geographically the largest district in Key Club International. The district spans from Alaska to northern California: with British Columbia, Yukon Territory, Washington, Oregon, and even the “pan-handle” of Idaho in between. With over 40 divisions, this district contains about 330 Key Clubs and over 12,000 members. Our official mascot is the butterfly and our official colors are teal and silver.

November DCM What is happening?

What’s a DCM?

With DCON coming up in a few weeks, it is time to prepare for the event! We will be making hug me cards, decorations, and other spirit wear and materials for DCON. Anybody who will be attending DCON will also receive important information so be sure to attend!

A DCM stands for Divisional Council Meeting. Here key clubbers from each of the schools will attend to meet each other and to hear divisional news from the Lt. Governor. There will be lots of fun and games, and I am so excited to meet you guys!

Location: Cascade Park Library Date: Saturday, February 27th from 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM Who should attend: club officers, members, and friends.

International Trustee Meet Your International Trustee Hey everyone! My name is Roshni Chandwani, and I will be your International Trustee for the 2013 to 2014 service year. I joined Key Club my freshman year, and it was the best decision I’ve ever made! I’m currently a rising senior at Cypress Falls High School in Houston, Texas, and I’m also involved in Debate, Red Cross, and Student Council. In my free time, I love getting boba tea with my friends, listening to music, or watching TV shows (like Suits). This year, I want to be more accessible to club members and officers. As a Club President, I didn’t want to contact my trustee at the time because I thought she would be too busy to answer any of my questions, but that definitely is not the case. If any of you have questions or just want to say hi, feel free to shoot me an e-mail at! Also, please join the Sister Districts Facebook Group: ( to stay updated on everything Key Club related!

DCON 2014 Are you ready for DCON 2014? Prepare for a weekend full of celebration and fun in the Seattle Convention Center! Members will be staying at the Seattle Marriot, a short walk away from the convention center.  

Explore Downtown Seattle with its restaurants, waterfront, museums, and other attractions should you choose to arrive early.

Experience the massive Seattle Convention center and its many amenities. Also, no more overflow room!

Save lives by donating blood through the Cascade Regional Blood Services. The need for donations is always high, and you will be providing necessary infusions of blood for sick or injured patients.
