The Jelly Journal Dear Division 30, It’s finally May! Do you know what that means? AP testing is over! And I hope every single one of you who took an AP test did a fantastic job! Even though there is one date left for SAT testing, it will all be over soon! Other than testing, there is a little more than a month and a half left of school until the summer and hopefully some sun! Since the school year is almost to an end, go over to your middle/junior high schools and make connections with their Builder’s Club if you haven’t yet this year. This way you are able to introduce what Key Club is, if they do not know what it is, and you can get prospective members for next year! During the summer, fundraise with your Clubs or with nearby Clubs so you can start of the new school year with some funds. Bake sales and car washes are great. You can also use some of the funds to start saving for 2012 DCON. I’m thinking about a Divisional Project sometime during the summer to get funds for 2012 DCON but more on that later and at the May DCM. Hopefully by the end of May, I have visited your Clubs at least once and have received all of your Club Contact Information. Remember, if you have any questions, any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to give me a call! Hope to see you all soon!

Governor’s Project Kiwanis Children’s Cancer Program (KCCP) Inspiration: In 1964 PNW Governor Frank Morehouse had the opportunity to work as a Medical Technologist at Rogue Valley Medical Center, Medford Oregon, where he met Penny, a 10 year old brain cancer patient. His relationship with Penny and her fatal condition is the inspiration for this PNW District Program. Governor Frank is dedicating his Governor’s Program to the memory of Penny to help change the future for children suffering from cancer, especially brain cancer.
Goal: Support the Kiwanis Doernbecher Children’s Cancer Program at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, Portland, Oregon. Mike Davis, President KDCCP, email@example.com
Support the Kiwanis Children’s Cancer Fellowship Program at Seattle Children’s Hospital, Seattle Washington. Mike La Franchi, President KCCPNW, firstname.lastname@example.org
Support the Kiwanis Children’s Cancer Fellowship Program at British Columbia Children’s Hospital, Vancouver, British Columbia. Darlene Smith, President KCCPBCY, email@example.com
"Fifty years ago, most children with leukemia lived less than one year, and almost none survived. Now, thanks to advances made at research and teaching hospitals like Doernbecher, most children with leukemia reach adulthood, cured of their disease." Dr. Linda Stork, MD., Division Head, Pediatric Hematology/Oncology, OHSU Doernbecher Children's Hospital
Participation: Tour the Children’s Cancer Research Hospital in your area. • Sponsor a fundraiser for the Research Program – Walks, Bike Rides, and Relays. • Schedule a speaker from any of the Kiwanis Cancer Research Programs. • Make hats, trauma dolls, and quilts for children going through cancer treatment.
Reward: Gain satisfaction for changing the world one child at a time and making a real difference in the lives and future of children in each of our communities. “This PNW Kiwanis Program will continue for as long as there is the need to find cures for children’s cancer.” Claudell King, PNW Governor Elect 2010-2011.
