President’s Message Greetings fellow Key Clubbers, Yay! It’s officially the start of summer. I hope everyone is enjoying their break so far. I want to extend my congratulations to the Jenks Key Club Board of 2016-2017. The officers selected some of the strongest applicants to lead the club, and Jenks Key Club is bound to experience positive changes and continuities to the act of providing service. The officers will be meeting up soon to discuss and plan the year. If members have any suggestions as to what they would like Jenks Key Club to accomplish or participate in, please email president@jenkskeyclub.org to submit ideas. Please contribute, so we can make this year an enjoyable experience for everyone! Just because it’s summer, doesn’t mean that service will diminish. We have many special projects that people can volunteer at throughout the break. We also have an upcoming social on June 11th that all members and nonmembers are invited to so bring your friends! Check out the website for more details. Keep on serving our home, school, and community! Your President,

Hardi Patel Hardi Patel, Club President

Helping Our School, One Summer Day at a Time By: Dominique Savage In division 25W, Jenks High School may have ended the 2015 - 2016 school year on Monday the 23rd, but Key Club did not close with it. For the summer of 2016, Jenks Key Club has announced to be active for the duration of the summer. Jenks Key Club has plans on holding various socials throughout the summer to build long lasting friendships, cleaning the school to prepare for the next year, helping the Bridges Foundation with the Dirty Dog 5k and Fun Run, volunteering with the Kiwanis on the 4th of July, and general volunteering around the community. One thing we decided on was to continue with our socials even during the summertime so any member who are still in town can stay involved with the club. Socials are a great way to interact with the various members within the club and meet new people as well. One social we already have planned is for the month of June, where the club will be going to a park in our city and play frisbee as teams. The losing team would have to donate $2 to the Eliminate Project. Not only will this social be fun and competitive, but it also helps out a major project through the donation. These monthly socials will allow individuals to let loose and have fun during the summer and want to stay even more active within the club. Some fun projects we have planned for the summer include cleaning out the school, the Dirty Dog 5k and Fun Run, and the 4th of July volunteering event with the Kiwanis.

The Jenks Key Club hosted a locker clean out where several members of the club came back to school a day after the last day and helped clean out the lockers in one of the buildings at our school. This was a huge service to the school because of the many lockers that were in that one building. The volunteers stayed for hours working hard until every single locker got cleaned, and there were so many volunteers that this project was finished before planned! An event coming up on June 4th Bridges Foundation Dog Fun Run, and the dinner the day before on June 3rd. Volunteers have signed up to set up and tear apart the dinner area on the night of June 3rd. The next day, the Bridges Foundation is hosting a run where individuals can run a 5k with their dog. Volunteers are needed to set up and take down the obstacle course, as well as man the sign up table, kids play area, or other various areas the Foundation may need help with. This is a great project for many of our members who love working with pets and staying active. The last big project we have planned this summer is to help out the Kiwanis hand out watermelons on July the 4th. This is something the Jenks Key Club has been involved in for years and we’ve always had a great time helping out the Kiwanis during this event.

Not only will this project bring us closer to our Kiwanis but it’s always a great way to spend the 4th of July! The club also has other projects that are year-long that members can participate in during the summer as well, such as helping out at the food bank, the library, church, aquarium, hospital, pet shops, the homeless shelter, etc. Offering all these various projects that our members can choose which to volunteer at makes it easier for members to want to stay active during the summer and are a key part in making sure the Jenks Key Club continue to be successful even when school is out.

The Annual Trash Bash By: Rejoice Chigede The school year has officially ended for Jenks High School students, but Jenks Key Club has not ended its mission of service. We hope to continue serving this summer, even though many clubs become inactive during the summer, or at least, they do very little volunteering. This summer Jenks Key Club plans hosting socials to help build relationships within our club, helping our school prepare for the upcoming year, helping the Bridges Foundation, volunteering with the Kiwanis on the 4th of July and with the topic of this article, the Trash Bash, and general volunteering around the community. Our Jenks Key Club members are excited to continue serving this summer. The annual Trash Bash was an event held by our Kiwanis where people would bring their trash to a gravel lot at a golf course, we would collect money, direct traffic, and possibly help unload the trash, if needed. There were options for people to simply dump their trash or, if they had wood, there was a wood chipper available. There price for people to bring their trash was $10 or free with the flyer they handed out earlier in the week, and it was open to Jenks residents. There were four, two-hour shifts for us to volunteer at from 8am to 4pm. Even though it was a chilly, windy day, we were all there with cheerful and happy attitudes.

Kiwanis were also there to meet us and help us out with all the supplies, and they were really nice and welcoming to us. There were two Kiwanis people there with us, and there were different people for each shift. This way, we were able to get to know many of the Kiwanis members, if we stayed the whole time. It was really great getting to know some of the Kiwanis members and having conversations with them. It made us even more eager to help them out in the future. Not only do they support our club in various ways, but they are generous, sweet people as well. The Trash Bash was a great opportunity for our club to help out our Kiwanis this summer. Helping out our Kiwanis whenever we can is something we strive to do. We always want to be able to continue to build new relationship and make their lives a little easier. We hope to continue volunteering with them this summer and in the future.
