Letter From Your Editor Dear Key Club Members, I hope everyone’s first month of school was successful! Let the freshman know about Key Club. Who we are, what we do, what they can get from joining, show them the beauty of Key Club and most importantly, have them know we do not make keys. The more members, the bigger our K-Family! Please have them join! As a reminder, first general meeting is Wednesday, September 28th, 2011 in the auditorium after 9th. There, we will be discussing what Key Club is and what we strive for. Also, we will be collecting your Membership Information Sheets with your dues! Please spread the word and attend! Even if there hasn’t been any events, still write me articles! What are your thoughts and feelings about Key Club? Send them to me! Please be appropriate and positive. In addition, solve my fun and games! They are an easy way to gain points if you don’t want to write articles. Even better, you can get double the points if you complete both! Send your articles and solved puzzles to -Holy Cheong

SEPTEMBER St. Rafael’s Festival September— September 17,2011 The St. Raphael's Festival was a great experience. The face painting, the dunk tank, and the Greek cuisine. The festival had so much going on. We helped out with the event; some of us ran the face painting station and others helped with the cleanup. I personally helped with the wrap up at the evening shift. Even though it was a lot of work moving tables, bringing appliances in and out of the building, I had a lot of fun. The organizers really appreciated our help and this made me realize what Key Club is all about—community! -Adriel Paderanga

INTERNATIONAL NEWS GET READY FOR OCTOBER! UNICEF UNICEF, the only organization of the United Nations dedicated exclusively to children, works with other United Nations bodies, governments and nongovernmental organizations to assist in children’s needs through communitybased services in primary health care, basic education, and safe water and sanitation in more than 150 developing countries. UNICEF shares the Kiwanis family’s global commitment to children and has provided its extensive resources and leadership to assist in the Worldwide Service Project to virtually eliminate Iodine Deficiency Disorder (IDD) from the globe. How Key Club helps Since 1994, Key Club has been Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF. Created, inspired and powered by kids since 1950, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF has empowered generations to make lasting change in their global community. Over the years, Key Clubbers have raised nearly $5 million for iodine deficiency programs worldwide, HIV and AIDS programs in Kenya and Swaziland and most recently Operation Uruguay: Protecting the Rights of Children. This year, all funds raised by Key Clubs through Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF will go to The Eliminate Project: Kiwanis eliminating maternal and neonatal tetanus.

KEY Clubber of the Month What does it mean to be “Key Clubber of the Month�? We give out this award each month to a particular key club member who has made the most impact on our club for that month. In order to get this award you have to attend events, and participate. We want to see someone who is actively helping and contributing to their community. But we also want to see someone who is representing Brooklyn Tech, and most importantly, key club. This member should be the role model for other members.


Caring — our way of life


Key Club is not about getting points and getting credit. You get a family out of Key Club. The people who surround you at events, at meetings, they’re your K– Family. Join us! Together, we can make a difference.
