Diamond Pichardo District Governor Hello Beautiful Servant Leaders!
Happy holidays, FLACKI!
I hope you all have had an incredible fall semester! If you are anything like me, you are so ready for the holidays to commence! This is my favorite time of the year and I love looking back and seeing all the amazing things that happened. When I look back this year, you all will be a huge part of what I am thankful for and I have never been more proud to be part of this organization. I hope you all realize the incredible difference you all make in your communities and in the world. The world is most definitely a better place because you exist, so please remember that, especially when things get rough during finals time.
The service year is approaching its half-way mark and I can hardly believe that I have had the honor of serving as your District editor. Since my first DCON as a Key Clubber three years ago, it has been part of my dream to be a part of the district board for a branch of Kiwanis. I have grown so much as a graphic designer and service leader; it is difficult for me to comprehend how far I have come since the first issue and I hope to continue to improve until my last publication.
I really enjoyed seeing a lot of you and hearing about all the incredible projects your clubs have done at our annual Leadership Training Conference at Camp Kiwanis and I am even more excited for our District Convention in February! Stay tuned for more information about this starry event from our Conventions Chair Alex!
Speaking of higher office, I hope the Circle Kapers have inspired you in some way to run for higher office. As the board looks for their successors, I am personally excited to see which members will challenge themselves to take the next step in their CKI membership. Running for higher office is more than adding a line to your resumé; it will transform your leadership style and broaden your horizons like no other position. I hope to see you all at DCON.
Hello Wonderful Florida District! While this is the most wonderful time of the year for some, for others, the holidays can be filled with stress and it often serves as a trigger for certain mental illnesses, so my governor’s project Minding Minds is as relevant as ever. Take the time to check in on your loved ones and friends and YOURSELF! As always, I just want to remind you all how much YOU matter and how loved YOU are! If you ever need someone to talk to, please feel free ot reach out to me, the district board, or anyone in your life! Happy Holidays!
It’s been an incredible half of the term which has been full of comm unforgettable memories.

We're more than halfway though the service year - I don't know about you, but I'm so surprised by that! This is the season of giving thanks, and while reﬂecting on the service year thus far, it is certain that I am so grateful to be a part of CKI. I appreciate the opportunity to serve as District Secretary, the friendships I've built this year, and the new favorite service projects I've volunteered at. Since the start of my term as secretary, I have created a spreadsheet of Florida CKI data collected from Monthly Report Forms (MRFs) ﬁlled out monthly by club secretaries, created and distributed board meeting minutes, met incredible CKIers at Leadership Training Conference, and more. I really like being able to interact with various CKIers by working with club secretaries across Florida while also doing speciﬁc tasks like sending out District calls and board meeting agendas. If you are considering running for a district position at DCON, JUST DO IT! This is my second year on the district board and I can guarantee that it would be an incredible experience. You would go to unique events, develop important employable skills, and meet incredible servant leaders all across the state. Feel free to contact me if you're interested in running for District Secretary (or even if you just want to say hello and share memes)! I transferred to the UCF just this spring and though I've only been at UCF for less than a year, I have created such incredible, valuable friendships. I love knowing that the friendships I have doesn't end once the CKI meeting is adjourned. Just this semester I've been able to enjoy my new favorite service project ever with the UCF CKI! The event was Orlando Pride and we helped in the morning with set up. It was my ﬁrst Pride and my heart was so warmed to see how accepting (and huge) the Orlando community is. Morning set up was so much fun that I came back later in the day with some other CKIers I met at the service project to enjoy the rest of pride! I had the best day of my life being a part of my Orlando hometown community. If it wasn't for CKI, I wouldn't have created such a fond memory with such amazing people - this is one of the many reasons I'm thankful to be in CKI! I'm so excited to see you at DCON! Until then, happy holidays!
Josephine Di Russo District Secretary
MATTHEW GRIMMER Citrus LTG
So far as Citrus LTG I have created and executed an oﬃcer training for Citrus club oﬃcers to better help them understand CKI and their positions, attended Key Club and Kiwanis DCMs when I possibly could, sent out monthly updates to oﬃcers and anyone else interested in receiving them, created a resource on tabling to help clubs with recruitment, I have planned and executed two Divisional Council Meetings (one at the zoo and the other we went ice skating), updated the Citrus Rewards System and started tracking points for members, and have also held one on one sessions with Club Presidents. On November 16, Citrus held our second DCM. We ﬁrst met at a Wendy's to grab some food and discuss our clubs and important information from the District and International. After, we made our way to an Ice Rink and spent the night holding on to each other and the wall to keep some balance through the night. It was a great night ﬁlled with fellowship for Citrus! MARIA LANDRON Evergold LTG
Hello Friends! I cannot believe it is already half way through the 2018-2019 service year. I hope that this Division Update motivates you to lead and serve your communities. As always, please let me know if you ever need anything. Congratulations To the CKI Club of Miami-Dade Wolfson for getting Chartered! Thank you for all you do! ERIC TROTMAN Suwannee LTG In following the Governor’s Project, Minding Minds | The L.I.F.E. Initiative it is necessary to understand your boundaries as a human being and to prioritize your
leaders we have a tendency to see to others needs before our own, this is what makes us such genuine, loving people. However, we must know when to take a step back and see to ourselves. With that said, Suwannee division has done some amazing things, the University of Florida CKI hosted their annual Fall Lock-in. This is a 9-hour long event from 10pm to 7am. Where members of UF CKI along with some members of UNF CKI fought against their urges to sleep and participated in service events revolving around the Governor’s project, raised money for Relay for Life and the American Cancer Society and, had a blast socializing with members and dancing to music. We made stress-balls, wrote letters, painted rocks and much more. UNF CKI on the other hand had a blast volunteering with Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary where they helped clean the facility and reorganize the feeding areas. Catty Shacks houses big cats such as lions, tiger and pumas. Who came from facilities that closed down or where being kept illegally. They also volunteered at Jacksonville Zoo’s Halloween Spooktacular event, where they guided children through games and assisted in any way possible to help run the event smoothly. CRISTIAN TELLO Legal Chair So far this year I have been able to accomplish a multitude of task that have allowed me to fulﬁll the position of legal chair to the fullest. I was able to provide a comprehensive breakdown of the CKI Bylaws and provide an online workshop to all the LTG’s across the district. Which has helped increase levels of understanding about the Bylaws and cleared up any confusions in the document. I have also worked on and edited the call for amendments to start the process of collecting amendments to be voted on at DCON. Currently I am working diligently on editing the elections packet to be discussed and voted on at winter board to have the guidelines for elections at DCON.
ED BOARD Updates
JORDEN IRBY Membership Development & Education (MDE) Chair
With this role comes the ability to develop an answer to these two questions for yourself and for others: 'Why does CKI as an organization strive for its speciﬁc goals?' and 'How can CKI personally develop each individual?' I thought I knew my answers to these questions, and then I kept learning new things about myself everyday within CKI. This is a great driving force behind the Membership Development & Education Chair position. There is no shortage of information you can learn or growth you can see from being a part of this organization, and it is an honor to be able to present all these positive inﬂuences to others. From creating the Keys to College presentation that informs Key Clubbers about college to creating the Spring Zone Rally presentation that prepares Key Clubbers to take the next step in the Kiwanis family, it is warming to see other people as service-oriented and passionate as I am. I also help the Conventions chair with planning workshops that not only present the international side of CKI but also provides unique opportunities to learn real-world skills - from improv and time management to leadership and professionalism. Also, being able to develop resources that help promote club growth, cohesive environments, and an tips on new ideas to consider makes seeing tomorrow's aspiring CKI leaders all the more fulﬁlling. ASHLEY JOHNS Public Relations & Technology Chair
Public relations and Technology is integral to the communication between the district board and our clubs. In my position as the chair, I have created logos for LTC and DCON, updated our various social media pages, created PR plans for the year and our events, and updated the district website when needed. I am currently
6 working on PR for our District Convention and a public relations guide for clubs' PR chairs/ Editors to use and understand the importance of their job and how they can utilize their position to beneﬁt their club.
JUNIOR PIERRE-LOUIS Service Chair
As the Service Chair, I had the opportunity to work alongside Governor Diamond to execute many service based initiative which focused on strengthening both online resources for oﬃcers and club members of CKI as well as create meaningful service impact through planned DLSSP events hosted at our conventions. Being that service is a major tenant to this organization and my favorite tenant in general, I was able to create new resources on the CKI website in which emphasized the Governor’s Project, which was revamped and reﬂected this year’s service initiative. In addition to this, creating the Service Guide for the Florida district allowed each oﬃcer to have readily available information to carry into their club board as well as create new service opportunities for their home club. With ongoing email distribution of various service opportunities in Florida and CKI as a whole, being Service Chair gave me the push I needed to creating meaningful impact to my Circle K and Kiwanis Family!

SUNBELT Lieutenant Governor MEIT DAVE Biomedical Sciences Major at the University of South Florida
Reason for Involvement A friend from high school told me about Key Club and said that it was a great volunteering organization that could get me involved in the community and help those in need. Favorite Service Project My favorite service project thus far was helping clean up at an orphanage to help alleviate the damages caused by Hurricane Irma. It was very personal as I was able to meet many of the kids that lived there and knew that the work that my peers and I were doing would help the children.
Member Spotlight Jose Sanchez is a member at the University of South Florida. He attended LTC, has consistently volunteered at service events throughout the semester, and has show unwavering dedication to CKI! Club Spotlight The University of South Florida had 5 members attend LTC, which is a relatively high number for them and other clubs in Sunbelt. They nearly doubled the amount of service hours completed in October when compared to the previous months. They have also held service projects after the last two general board meetings that fall under the Governorâ€™s Project.

Students Team Up to Fight Hunger (STUFH) Information from https:// www.stufh.org/. Facebook: https:// www.facebook.com/CKISTUFH “Students Team Up To Fight Hunger (STUFH) is a non-profit organization devoted to assisting and inspiring food drives at colleges and universities across the country. The mission of STUFH is to help feed the hungry while at the same time raising awareness among college students about hunger in their local communities. STUFH had its roots in the end-of-year food drive, where college students preparing to leave campus for the summer could donate any unused food rather than discarding it. Since its founding in 1999, STUFH has reported over five million pounds of food raised by colleges throughout the nation through various types of food drives. In the past year, STUFH involved more universities in the fight against hunger and has sponsored innovative food drives including STUFH THE BUS and food fight competitions. STUFH is also proud of its continuing partnership with Circle K International (CKI) with clubs on 450 campuses. Thousands of CKI college students are dedicated to community service and to fighting hunger. STUFH invites colleges and food banks to send their comments, food drive results and photos to our website to inspire other universities to become involved.”
“The mission of STUFH is to help feed the hungry while at the same time raising awareness among college students about hunger in their local communities. STUFH is dedicated to linking food banks with their local colleges and universities for two purposes: to raise food for the needy in the local community and to raise awareness of these needs upon the local student population. Although STUFH had its origins in the end-of-year food drive, allowing departing students to donate rather than discard any unopened non-perishable foodstuﬀs, STUFH has since assisted and inspired a wide variety of food drives, including “STUFH the Bus,” “Food Fights,” and many more. Through these food drives, STUFH hopes to help link the hearts and souls of college students with their less fortunate hungry neighbors.”
“An idea STUFH is spreading across the country is to raise tons of food during the Fall college football season by holding a Food Fight inspired by intense university rivalry. The battle on the football ﬁeld can be mirrored with a battle to raise the most food for the local food bank.”
STUFH THE BUS “The food drive – “STUFH the BUS” – is a one time event involving the filling of a school bus with nonperishable goods that will be donated to the local food bank or food pantries in your area. The idea was initiated at the University of Central Missouri, resulting in 1136 pounds of food, 105 boxes of clothing and 4 shopping carts of school supplies.

Generalized An I
nformation obtained from the NIH website here.
What is GAD? “Occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. You might worry about things like health, money, or family problems. But people with generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) feel extremely worried or feel nervous about these and other things—even when there is little or no reason to worry about them. People with GAD find it difficult to control their anxiety and stay focused on daily tasks. The good news is that GAD is treatable. Call your doctor to talk about your symptoms so that you can feel better.
Symptoms may get better or worse at different times, and they are often worse during times of stress, such as with a physical illness, during exams at school, or during a family or relationship conflict.
What are the signs and symptoms of GAD? GAD develops slowly. It often starts during the teen years or young adulthood. People with GAD may: • Worry very much about everyday things • Have trouble controlling their worries or feelings of nervousness • Know that they worry much more than they should • Feel restless and have trouble relaxing • Have a hard time concentrating Be easily startled • Have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep • Feel easily tired or tired all the time • Have headaches, muscle aches, stomach aches, or unexplained pains • Have a hard time swallowing n Tremble or twitch • Be irritable or feel “on edge” • Sweat a lot, feel lightheaded or out of breath • Have to go to the bathroom a lot Children and teens with GAD often worry excessively about: • Their performance, such as in school or in sports
Adults with GAD are often highly nervous about everyday circumstances, such as: • Job security or performance • Health • Finances • The health and well-being of their children • Being late • Completing household chores and other responsibilities Both children and adults with GAD may experience physical symptoms that make it hard to function and that interfere with daily life. What causes GAD? GAD sometimes runs in families, but no one knows for sure why some family members have it while others don’t. Researchers have found that several parts of the brain, as well as biological processes, play a key role in fear and anxiety. By learning more about how the brain and body function in people with anxiety disorders, researchers may be able to create better treatments. Researchers are also looking for ways in which stress and environmental factors play a role.
nxiety Disorder How is GAD treated? First, talk to your doctor about your symptoms. Your doctor should do an exam and ask you about your health history to make sure that an unrelated physical problem is not causing your symptoms. Your doctor may refer to you a mental health specialist, such as a psychiatrist or psychologist. GAD is generally treated with psychotherapy, medication, or both. Talk with your doctor about the best treatment for you. Psychotherapy A type of psychotherapy called cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is especially useful for treating GAD. CBT teaches a person diﬀerent ways of thinking, behaving, and reacting to situations that help him or her feel less anxious and worried. For more information on psychotherapy, visit http://www.nimh.nih.gov/ health/ topics/psychotherapies. Medication Doctors may also prescribe medication to help treat GAD. Your doctor will work with you to ﬁnd the best medication and dose for you.
Diﬀerent types of medication can be eﬀective in GAD: • Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) • Serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) • Other serotonergic medication • Benzodiazepines Doctors commonly use SSRIs and SNRIs to treat depression, but they are also helpful for the symptoms of GAD. They may take several weeks to start working. These medications may also cause side eﬀects, such as headaches, nausea, or diﬃculty sleeping. These side eﬀects are usually not severe for most people, especially if the dose starts oﬀ low and is increased slowly over time. Talk to your doctor about any side eﬀects that you have. Buspirone is another serotonergic medication that can be helpful in GAD. Buspirone needs to be taken continuously for several weeks for it to be fully eﬀective. Benzodiazepines, which are sedative medications, can also be used to manage severe forms of GAD. These medications are powerfully eﬀective in rapidly decreasing anxiety, but they can cause tolerance and dependence if you use them continuously.
Therefore, your doctor will only prescribe them for brief periods of time if you need them. Don’t give up on treatment too quickly. Both psychotherapy and medication can take some time to work. A healthy lifestyle can also help combat anxiety. Make sure to get enough sleep and exercise, eat a healthy diet, and turn to family and friends who you trust for support. For basic information about these and other mental health medications, visit http://www. nimh.nih.gov/health/ topics/mental-healthmedications. Visit the Food and Drug Administration’s website (http:// www.fda.gov/) for the latest information on warnings, patient medication guides, or newly approved medications… Where can I find more information?
