Governor’s Address Greetings Georgia Key Clubbers! My name is Gabe Newbern, and I will be serving you as District Governor for the 2012-2013 year! I am so excited to be able to work with you over the next school year. It is truly an honor. Let us have a great year of service to our homes, schools and communities. I am a rising senior at Valdosta High School, which is located in Lowndes County in South Georgia, where I’ve lived my entire life. Key Club is a huge part of my life. It is my favorite thing about my high school experience, and I love giving back to my community and knowing that I made a difference. My other hobbies include playing music, tennis, photography and video games. I am looking forward to serving you all alongside my district board. This year feels different than any other I have been on board for. I can honestly tell you that our district board is the most energized board that I have ever served on, and we are actively working to make this upcoming year our best. At our first district board meeting, we made huge leaps in progress in all of our committees. A few weeks from now, members of the district board, along with members of the mighty Georgia District, will be travelling down to Orlando, Florida for the 2012 International Convention (ICON). Here, they will attend informative forums as well as sessions. Along with this, many will help elect Key Club International’s District Board for the 2012-2013 year. We will be meeting Key Clubbers from around the world. We are also going to stop by both Disney World and Universal Studios. All of the attendees will return with the knowledge necessary to making their Key Club year the best possible. Join us next year at ICON in Washington, D.C.! As your District Governor, I pledge to hold fast to my goals that I ran with at District Convention. I promise to make this next year GOLDEN, which is an acronym that I used to sum up my goals for next year. The G stands for Goal-oriented. The Georgia District is currently deciding our goals for the next five years. We have assigned a few major issues that we need to address including membership, participation, and fund-raising. The O stands for open. I’m open to your suggestions. If at any time during the year that you have questions, please feel free to e-mail me. L stands for Leadership. I am determined to develop our leadership as a district over the next year. D stands for dedication. I promise to be dedicated to the district and its causes over the next year. E stands for enthusiasm. I am so excited to serve as your district governor for the next year. I promise to make it the best that I can. N stands for neighborly. I promise to stand next to our K-family in order to truly make a difference in the world. Thank you so much for this opportunity to serve my state and the world. I am truly ecstatic to be your 2012-2013 Georgia District Governor. If you have any questions or need to contact me, feel free to email me at governor@gakeyclub.org. Yours in service, Gabe Newbern District Governor of the Georgia District of Key Club International


Treasurer Wendy LAM Hi, I’m Wendy Lam, and I am looking forward to serving you as district treasurer for the 2012-2013 year! I’m a rising junior at Chattahoochee High School in John’s Creek. I am incredibly passionate about Key Club, as I have been active in Key Club since my freshman year. I learned so much about Key Club serving as a lieutenant governor last year, and I hope to bring that knowledge to my position as treasurer to reach my goals and to serve you to the best of my ability. Outside of Key Club, I am involved in fencing and Girl Scouts, so I’m almost always busy, but Key Club is my top priority! My goal for this year is to have 90% of schools pay their dues at least on time! I encourage your club to reach out to your division’s lieutenant governor, as they are there to serve as a liaison between your club and the Georgia District, so please take advantage of that resource! I look forward to meeting all of you throughout the year. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at treasurer@gakeyclub.org Serving with and for you, Wendy Lam District Board Treasurer

Secretary Ashley Brock My name is Ashley Brock, and I’m really excited to be serving as your 2012-2013 District Secretary! I am a rising senior at Chestatee High School in Gainesville. I really enjoyed my time on District Board last year as the Lieutenant Governor of Divisions 11 and 12. Over the past few years, I have really discovered a passion for service. I joined Key Club as a freshman, and I really fell in love with the organization at my first District Convention in 2011. Aside from Key Club, I am extremely involved at my school. I participate in National Honor Society, student council, book club, and environmental club. I am a National Honor Thespian, and this coming school year will be my second year as a colorguard captain. My goals for my term as secretary include performing all my duties to the best of my abilities and enhancing communication between the district board and individual clubs. I need your help with the latter! Please submit your officer information. This can be done by mail or submitted online at georgiakeyclub.com. This is the easiest way for lieutenant governors to relay information to your club, which is why I want all of you to submit as soon as possible! Free to contact me at any time with questions! I look forward to getting to know all of you over the course of this year. Serving with love always, Ashley Brock District Secretary

Snapshots from DISTRICT CONVENTION A year of service in the GEORGIA DISTRICT Meet the new BOARD OF TRUSTEES


DISTRICT CONVENTION


This year, I went to the Georgia District Key Club Convention for the first time. At first, I was worried that it would be awkward and that I wouldn’t know anyone there or that it might even be boring. I was wrong. I made so many new friends at this convention, and I learned how to take care of my community. I also learned that there are actually key clubs outside of the country! My favorite part though was learning new ways to fundraise for my home club, and how to help out other clubs across the world. Overall, going to this convention was easily the best decision I’ve ever made. -Chelsea Woody Chestatee High School

This was my first year attending DCON, and I must say that I learned a lot and definitely enjoyed every minute of it. It was really great that we had a variety of forums to choose from, because I really enjoyed Latin Dancing. I learned tons about the GA Sheriff’s Youth Homes and fun facts about Key Club! It was an eye opening experience to realize that service truly has NO borders, as Key Club reaches beyond our school and our state; it’s international! DCON was awesome and I definitely look forward to attending it again next year! -Hope Griffin Gainesville High School

The highlight of DCON is easily Latin dancing, hanging out with friends, and the awesome food and entertainment found at the banquet. What more could anyone ask for? While DCON offered its share of fun, it also gave me a chance to learn more about the mission of Key club, other service projects going on across the state, and even take part in the election of state officers through the caucuses! DCON was a new and entertaining experience that I’d recommend to any active Key Clubber! -Katherine Jones Gainesville High School


“Service Has No Borders” Those who attended the 67th Annual Georgia District Convention this year learned that service truly has no borders. Taking place at the Marriott Century Center in Atlanta, Georgia, Key Clubbers had the opportunity to experience service with an international vibe. Despite the busy agenda, members arrived on Friday looking forward to a weekend full of fun and service. After becoming well-acquainted by eating and mingling at the Meet-and-greet and pizza dinner, everyone gathered in the Century Ballroom for the Opening Session. Governor Meredith led the session, beginning with her State of the District Address. Following a fantastic presentation by the Key Note speaker Mr. Joel Williams, the session closed with an exciting recital of “Show your K” led by the district board. The night ended with divisional caucuses, where nominees for executive board positions presented their speeches. The excitement began early on Saturday morning with the GA Sheriff’s Youth Homes 3k Walk. Key Clubbers enthusiastically marched around the hotel to raise money for the youth homes, finishing with a well-deserved celebration breakfast of croissant sandwiches. The service fair was set up during breakfast. The beautiful display of posters gave Key Clubbers the chance to share service project ideas with one anoth-

er. Following the breakfast, the educational forums began! There were a variety of workshops to choose from, ranging from Key Club 101 to Latin Dancing. Free time presented Key Clubbers with several hours in Atlanta with hours of limitless fun from shopping to the World of Coke. The Talents and Awards Banquet began that evening, with everyone looking their absolute best. There were a variety of talents presented including poetry recitation, dancing, and singing, followed by the presentation of special awards that recognized a year of hard work for many Key Clubs across Georgia. Saturday night ended with the Governor’s Ball and Movie Screening. The Farewell session began on Sunday morning and was quite a bittersweet affair. Governor Meredith presented her Farewell Address and Georgia District Kiwanis Governor Greg Hall retired the 2012-2013 board and installed the new board officers. A new chapter began for both the Georgia District and Doug Westmoreland as he passed his position as District Administrator to Brad Malone. There was a mixture of tears and smiles as stories of Doug’s dedication and passion for Key Club were shared. The session was adjourned by Governor Gabe Newbern, and Key Clubbers returned home, taking with them a greater knowledge of Key Club and a higher degree of enthusiasm for service.


A Year on the Georgia District Board, a Lifetime of Memories and Influence

When

I joined the Georgia District Board, my intentions were to make a difference in the lives of others and to bring others to the Key Club International family. What I did not know was that these experiences would change me forever. When I first started my term, I was terrified to approach strangers but I felt my leadership skills were superb. It was through serving on board that I realized that being a good leader meant having no fear when approaching new people. Through Key Club, my confidence soared and is at an alltime high, something I will always be thankful for. In addition to building my confidence, serving on the Georgia District board has allowed me to meet new people and make new friends with whom I’ve shared some very special memories. Serving on the Georgia District Board of Key Club International truly changed my life. It allowed me to grow not only as a leader but a person as well. -Kelsy Cotto


A Message from your

INTERNATIONAL TRUSTEE For the last time, hello, Georgia Key Clubbers!

First of all, thank you so much for the privilege and honor of serving you this year in the capacity of International Trustee. As some of you may know, July 7th marks the end of my term of service to you as an International Trustee. It has been such a joy getting to know you and seeing the fruits of your labors in service throughout the year. As a fellow Southerner, I can truly say that I love the Georgia District of Key Club International and all the wonderful things that ya’ll have shown me this year, from true Southern hospitality to your genuine passion for service. Thank you so much for teaching me what servant leadership is about this year! On a lighter note, I hope that this is not a final farewell to all of you. International Convention is coming up in just over a month, and you better believe I’ll be seeing some of your smiling faces there! From Justin Willman (magician entertainer) and Eden Sher (star of ABC’s “The Middle”) for your enlightenment and entertainment, to amazing workshops (I’m hosting an icebreaker one!), to making tons of new friends, there’s no doubt in my mind that International Convention 2012 in Orlando, Florida, will be simply amazing. I hope to see your beautiful faces there one last time, but if not, thank you again for the wonderful year of service. It’s been a true pleasure and privilege. Keep in touch, and I look forward to hearing great things from Georgia in the future! Yours always in service and friendship, Rebecca Riley, International Trustee

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the of others.” -Mahatma Gandhi

Habersham’s Special Olympics By Kaitlin Merck Every Key Club in Georgia has different projects they do as the year progresses. Some of these projects are carefully planned throughout the entire year. Habersham Central does many projects throughout the year to raise money for projects and to help the community, with the most interesting being our annual Special Olympics. The Special Olympics is a year-round project where we invite special need children to interact with us. We do three activities with them. We have a Fall Festival, a Christmas Dinner, and the Special Olympics. The Fall Festival is a night where a Key Club member partners up with a buddy and plays games and chats throughout the evening. At the

Christmas Dinner, the same partners get to spend time together again and share a nice meal before Christmas break. Both of those events eventually lead to the Special Olympics at the end of the year. The entire school comes to support the players. The day is filled with competitions, awards, animals, crafts, and food. This is my favorite project because you interact and become close with another person. Throughout all the activities we do with them, you can see the smiles on their faces and how happy they are to participate. The best part about this project is that it brings together many schools, clubs, and people in the community to make this day great.

Growth in Harris Couty By Katie Fuller

This past year has been very successful for Harris County Key Club! Not only has our club grown to 116 members, it has been blessed with many opportunities to serve our community and reach out to others. We have had the opportunity to work at multiple events including many elementary school Fall Festivals, FOCUS Food Drive, Adopt-A-Child, Relay for Life, Community Spring Celebration and Egg Hunt, and concessions at every home soccer game. Having such a wide variety of service projects has made this past year successful. This upcoming year, we plan on setting our goals even higher by reaching out to more people and completing more projects. Harris County Key Clubbers at FOCUS Food Bank


Service at Alcovy High School By Teeda Nieman

Alcovy High School in Covington , Georgia is very active and dedicated to serving the community in many ways. Throughout this year, we played Bingo at a local nursing home, the Benton House. We also participated in many Kiwanis activities, such as the Christmas Parade. We helped in the school’s Fall Festival by gathering toys and necessities for children in the Haiti Disaster Relief, in addition to raising money for an Alcovy student battling Leukemia. This year, we also had 3 blood drives partnered with American Red Cross Association. The most recent blood drive had over 75 units of blood given, and we received a $500 grant reaching that goal. Our most recent service project was Special Olympics, Track & Field events held on May 2nd, 2012. Many students in our Key Club participated and enjoyed helping special needs students. The events were the 50 M dash and Softball Throw. It was a joy to see each special need student awarded 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. Face painting, nail painting, and a baseball toss were extra activities during our free time. Everyone had a wonderful time

helping a the special needs students by making it their special day! Wrapping up an incredible year of service, our Key Club banquet took place April 24th and some students participated in our local Kiwanis Luncheon on May 17th. The banquet was fun and enjoyable. The president-elect and his wife joined us at the banquet, awarding outstanding students for their dedication in Key Club/Kiwanis activities throughout the year. The Kiwanis Luncheon was very informative and enjoyable. Our Key Club presented an End-of-the-Year video among fellow Kiwanians. This year has been great for Alcovy Key Club and I enjoyed every time spent helping our community.


Keep Forsyth Beautiful By Jae Won Shin

Keep Forsyth Beautiful, an organization that takes part in cleaning up our community, holds a variety of events each year focused on community clean-up. These include the Mobile Trash Unit where groups of adults or students get together and clean a certain part of Forsyth County, such as a park or a road. Once a month, the organization also takes part in checking the biological conditions of rivers and streams and also cleans them up.

Making a positive difference By Jennifer Valencia Key Club is all about making a positive difference as young leaders in our communities. We strive to do our best to serve our communities well. One particular school stands out among the other fantastic schools in division one for one of its fantastic service projects. The North Atlanta High School Key Club just completed an amazing service project that affected not only their local community, but a totally different country as well. “Barefoot for bare feet,� is the slogan of an incredible organization that was started in a different state when a few basketball coaches who wanted to fight poverty in third world countries went to Costa Rica to raise awareness for children without shoes. This organiza-

tion had people turn in their shoes early on this year raising $2 million and 2 million pairs of shoes. Following the lead of this organization, North Atlanta High School Key Club held a shoe drive to collect shoes for children in Costa Rica. The Key Clubbers began gathering shoes right away, making posters and telling their friend to start bringing in tennis shoes that they could no longer wear. Each Key Club member was required to bring in at least one pair of shoes, with each additional pair counting as a service hour. In the end, they were able to fill two large boxes of shoes that were shipped off to Costa Rica to help combat poverty.

South Forsyth Key Club with the help of Keep Forsyth Beautiful has adopted a road this year and is in charge of cleaning this road at least once a month. In February, we adopted Pendley Road and have cleaned the road three times: once in February, once in March, and again in April. The Mobile Trash units follow a certain process for cleaning up roads, which we learned by working alongside them. In addition, South Forsyth Key Club has had the pleasure of working with Kevin Smith, the Community Outreach Specialist of Keep Forsyth Beautiful. The picture to the upper left was taken on Ronald Regan Boulevard after South Forsyth Key Club had spent the day cleaning up. We are planning to spend a few days this summer cleaning our road. Although one might think of picking up trash as a grueling task, it can be quite enjoyable among the company of friends brought together through service.


Trick-or-treat for UNICEF By Logan Allen

In October of 2011, the Key Club of Chestatee High School organized an event to Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF (The United Nations Children’s Fund) and the ELIMINATE Project, a charity that has partnered with Kiwanis International to completely eliminate maternal/neonatal tetanus, a disease that claims the lives of many newborns despite the fact that vaccines exist to prevent the disease. These life-saving vaccines are given to those in need, and they are bought using money donated through fundraisers and service projects. The cost per vaccine is $1.80. This service project is a fun, creative way to raise funds by going door to door on Halloween to collect money. Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF takes what is normally an enjoyable holiday in which participants dress up and go door to door for candy, and uses this tradition to help raise funds on a night when many people will already be waiting at their doors for children to ask for candy. This service project is a very quick, easy way to reach many new potential donors that would not normally donate to such causes because of a lack of information on the subject. It also allows members of Key Club to inform potential donors of the project’s cause in a very personal manner, thereby increasing funds raised. This year, Chestatee High School raised over three hundred dollars in one night.

Adopt-a-Road At Valdosta High School By Mark Garren

The Valdosta High School Key Club along with their Kiwanis Club family came together last month to adopt a major street within Valdosta, Georgia as part of the Keep Lowndes-Valdosta Beautiful Program. Activities included collecting and recycling waste found alongside the roads and surrounding land. By the end of the morning, we collected over a dozen bags of recyclables and garbage. Developing similar cleanup events require very little preplanning and overhead, especially when your club can team up with other Key Clubs or organizations in your community. These activities reinforce Kiwanis Family relationships and are the ideal opportunity for your Key Club to be-

come acquainted with your local Kiwanis relatives. The activities, however, don’t have to be limited just to Kiwanis club: your club can organize projects similar to the Adopt-a-Road event with Circle K, Builders, K-Kids, and other Key Clubs around your county or region. Always consider upcoming events when planning activities, such as Kiwanis One Day or other service days. When planning such events, consider what opportunities for service your community already offers and think of ways to make an even greater impact on your home, school, and community through an enriching service opportunity!


“Living the

Legacy”

Now as we are aiding in the construction of our fourth building on a Georgia Sheriffs’ Youth Home Campus, we can look back at all that we have worked to accomplish with them. The Georgia District of Key Club first began its current relations ship with the Youth Homes in 1988. This year the District Board decided to focus on a local organization that was oriented on aiding children. And with this the relationship was born. The donations originally were just given to the homes in general, but in 1992 it was decided that the donations would go to specific buildings. This first building was a learning center for the Pineland Campus near Lagrange, Georgia. The building has provided a place to lay a foundation for educating the children as well as giving a place for counselors to meet with the residents. Following the completion of the learning center in 1999, we answered the call to aid in building a learning center for the female residents of the Cherokee Estates campus in Dalton, Georgia. This building was dedicated in our honor as the Georgia District of Key Club Learning Center. The next goal that the District has accomplished is the construction of a Chapel at the Pineland Campus. Thanks to hard work and generous donations this was completed in just 3 years. Over our time with the youth homes we have raised over $750,000 for the Youth homes. We are currently raising funds for a renovation of the Pineland Learning Center we began with twenty years ago. We are “Living the Legacy” as we currently attempt to raise $20,000 dollars this year alone. We hope to complete raising the money necessary for the completion of the center in five years as we “March to 150”. -Andrew Akers District Project Chair

Editor Sign Off Dear Key Clubbers, My name is John Stenzel, and I am honored to serve as the 2012-2013 District Bulletin Editor. I am a rising senior at Gainesville high School, and I have been active in Key Club since my freshman year. Through Key Club, I have discovered a passion for service, and I’ve had many opportunities to meet people that share this same passion for serving others. Key Club has also allowed me to grow as a person and has taught me many things about my community and the world around me that I couldn’t have learned through any other organization. This is my second year serving on the district board, so I hope to bring my previous experience as a Lieutenant Governor to my current position as Bulletin Editor in order to make this year’s volume of Key Rings successful by making them interesting, entertaining, and ultimately, informative. With that being said, the success of the Key Ring depends largely upon article submissions. I urge each of you to send articles about your club’s service projects to share your ideas with the Georgia District. The due dates for article submissions are as follows: July 15th, September 15th, November 15th, and January 15th. Please submit these to me at editor@gakeyclub.org It was truly a pleasure to make the first online magazine edition of the Key Ring, so I hope that you enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed making it. I look forward to receiving your articles! Yours in service, John Stenzel District Bulletin Editor
