This Election Rally will be put on with HEADLINE the help ofGOES Omak SIDEBAR Kiwanis President, Andi Ervin.

We are finally going to have an election rally! This is our first year holding an LTG Election Rally, so here are some answers to your questions: What is an LTG Election Rally? It’s exactly what it sounds like! It is a rally to elect our Division 9 2013-2014 Lieutenant Governor. There is only one person running, do we still have to have a rally? Yes, even though we only have one candidate, it is still necessary to vote for our next year’s LTG. Also, it’s going to be so much fun, why wouldn’t you want to have a rally?! How can I be a voting delegate? Talk to your adviser about wanting to be one of the two delegates, if they have not yet chosen them yet.

Thank you for all of your help! Also, I know how much our Key Clubbers love having food at our meetings! Therefore, it is a potluck! So, bring snacks to share and please inform me of who’s bringing what as soon as you can!

These are the names I have so far as for who is going to be involved in this rally. If anyone has any changes to make to this list, please contact me as soon as possible! Omak Delegates: Jasmair Bains, Jag Bains Liberty Bell Delegates: Tom Zbyskewski, Jacqueline O’Keefe Okanogan Delegates: Hunter Ervin, Katie Klepec Chaperoning Kiwanis: Andi Ervin, Stephen Smith, Roy Rieber
