But can you promise me one thing? When summer weather approaches, yet again, have fun volunteering and stay active in Key Club. I’ll try my best to incorporate as much volunteering at my DCM’s so its like killing a bird with two stones. So come to DCMs! DO VOLUNTEER SON! Have you registered for the Canadian Rally? GET ON IT, it’s going to be an amazing event and you definitely don’t want to miss out on the FUN! Finally this is a shout out to all the graduates. We would be no where if it weren’t for you guys. Always guiding us along the way and looking after us. Look after yourselves in the big world and know that Key Club is ohana, we’re all family, especially since you’ll be joining Circle K anyways. Right? ANYWHO WE WILL MISS YOU GRADS 2012! <3

In service and friendship, Jennifer Zhen

Oh I FEEL so GOOD!

I can’t believe we’ve been together for 2 months now! I’ve been around the division left and right and I’m overjoyed at seeing all of you through my club visitations. Lets all continue to work hard at school for the next two weeks. Afterwards, HELLO SUMMER! That means plentiful time to Key Club the day/night/24/7 away! YAY!

I want to let everyone know I will be able to receive my official Lieutenant Governor Training at International Convention in Orlando, Florida this summer because of the generous donations from the following Kiwanis Clubs: West Vancouver Kiwanis Vancouver Kiwanis Langley District 100 Kiwanis South Surrey Kiwanis White Rock Kiwanis Vancouver Technical Key Club No words can describe how grateful I am, but thank-you so much for your support and I can’t wait to bring back all that I can to further develop this wonderful Canadian division!

THANK-YOU SO MUCH!

We picked up roughly 90lbs of garbage consisting of over 825 cigarettes butts 2 dead animals, 6 condoms and many more. Special thanks to Kirstie Feng, our adult site coordinator!

Officers looking adorable as always! Officers with Rosemary, Tom DeJulio, and Kelly Ho!

We met someone famous! A few privileged Key Clubbers and myself had the chance to meet Mr. Tom DeJulio THE KIWANIS INTERNATIONAL PRESIDENT-ELECT and his wife Rosmary! Greg Holland our Kiwanis PNW Governor-Elect was also there. Wow some very very special people! We were so honoured to be in the same room as so many Kiwanians. It was a bit overwhelming, but we had a ton of fun. Kiwanians were also talking plans for the Kiwanis International Convention which is being held in our very own city, Vancouver next summer 2013!! It will be very exciting and just o let you all know, we’ll mostly likely be volunteering for their convention! VERY EXCITING !!

Cheers to a successful year!

Check out Jasmine and Darcy’s height difference!

Claremont

Despite several setbacks, Claremont Key Club was able to keep busy in May. Our first problem was our schools musical production, running the first 2 weeks of May, involving 4/5 of our executives, and nearly half the club. Secondly, we were unable to clean our schools Japanese Garden on the May long weekend due to teacher job action and scheduling conflicts. So we had to keep chipping away at it little by little on Friday's like we had been before. On the 26th, we sent volunteers to a local elementary school to help at an outdoor market organized by the schools PAC. This market was to raise funds to buy assistive computer hardware for children with autism. We also continued planning and getting ready for events such as our school's 50th anniversary, Operation Trackshoes, our Year End BBQ, next years recruitment video, and Canadian Rally. Woohoo!

Prince of Wales

The school year is almost over and there is only one Key Club meeting left! During the month of May, we finished the Key to Health project with a total of $300 raised. $250 was made by the cafeteria by selling healthy menus and collecting donations, and $50 was donated by Canuel Catering. Also, the cafeteria has agreed to work with us on this project again next year. On Monday, May 28, the PWKC President, along with other Key Clubbers from the division, attended the Kiwanis President Reception and met the Kiwanis international president; and on Wednesday, May 30, we had an amazing time with our Ltg Jennifer Zhen visiting our meeting.

Try to spot me in this Killarney Club Visitation Photo!

Killarney In the past month, Killarney has fundraised for March of Dimes by having a homemade lemon tea sale. The profits totalled out to be only $13, but it was 'super duper' fun! We have also finished off our Staff for Laughs fundraiser. It was a quick fundraiser that took a lot of dedication from our vice president and committee chair, Jonathan Vu. We successfully raised over $200 for KCCP and convinced our Grade 11 counsellor to come to school as a woman. ^_^v We have wrapped up our year, but our Kiwanians have invited us to volunteer and help them with their tea party for their senior home. This will take place on July 20 from 12:30 to 4:30. During the summer, we will be having one volunteer opportunity to be announced for all our key clubbers to have a chance to celebrate service even during their summer vacation. So if you guys have nothing to do.. come volunteer with us!!

Pinetree In the month of May, our club has been very busy and active. First and upmost, our club has created a bank account separate from the shcool, so we are now able to create and receive cheques directly to the club (our account name is Key Club Coquitlam). This has been discussed beforehand with our Kiwanian advisor Andre LaFluer. Besides that, we have involved ourselves in numerous volunteering activities, such as the Shoreline Clean up our division took part in, and as well with the Kiwanis&Eagle Ridge flower sale. With this, our club raised over a $1000, and we plan to use part of this money to donate.

Tupper May was an okay month, despite missing one meeting due to the entire exec board being absent. Divisional event attendance was still an issue with our club but we're still trying our best to get to go whether it be schedule conflict or disinterest. We also tried to participate in the city's campaign, Keep Vancouver Spectacular, to clean up litter around the city. However due to some miscommunication between us and their organizers, the event was unfortunately cancelled. The highlight of May was our own March of Dimes fundraiser where we sold gelato at our annual carnival and raised $261! We are planning to participate in the Carfree Day festivites on June 17th. Even with the school year ending, I hope Key Club will not die in the summer!

For the month of May, Churchill Key Club volunteered in several events and held a fundraiser. We volunteered in events such as a shoreline clean-up and helping set-up for a Kiwanis breaking ground ceremony for an addon onto the Kiwanis complex at West Vancouver. For the fundraiser, Churchill Key Club raised more than 70$. Churchill Key Club also sold apple timers as a fundraiser on the side. Churchill was also partook in two Kiwanis events. Churchill Key Club has also managed to extend their active membership by 6 members, despite nearing the end of the school year.

VanTech

Churchill

Hello everyone! It has been a busy month with Van Tech Key Club! Our president from 2 years ago Iris Zhou came to visit us! She brought us cookies and updated us about her life in UBC's Circle K. It was an emotional event for everyone as it was during Iris's term that Key Club reached its prosperous times. On May 12th 2012, Van Tech Key Clubber's created a closer connection with West Vancouver Kiwanis Club by volunteering at their Kiwanis Groundbreaking Village Ceremony. The West Vancouver Kiwanis is going to build another manor to help home more senior citizens! Key clubbers enthusiastically served Kiwanians with cake and drinks and had an amazing bonding time. Every year at school we would host our own carnival and this year at TECHnival Van Tech Key Club worked hard and sold 20 Viet Subs, sold executives and key club t-shirts. Basiacally, whoever payed us money is allowed 2 water gallons where they are allowed to choose which executives they want to throw it to. We were all SOAKED! but we all had a fantastic time and the water was cooling under the summer heat! ChildRun organized by BC Children's Hospital was a marathon designed to help raise money to find a cure to cancer. Van Tech's Key Clubber's enthusiastically volunteered for the marathon waking up nice and early! The work they had to do include route marshals, greeters, and cheering team. A Few weeks ago, our Lt.G organized a divisional project where key clubbers go to pick up garage along the beach. It went successfully with our school's key clubber working passionately picking up litters such as cigarette butts and plastic bottle. Hard work pays off! Members then stayed to enjoy the view. June just kicked off and everyone is going to be busy studying for exams! So I wish everyone greatest luck!
