A word from the Editor
Hi members of Adelphi Circle K, Welcome to the end of the semester! We had a great year so far with the ending of our recent Wish Month. I hope you are enjoying your time in the club and that
you will return next semester. Just because school is over does not mean we stop doing what we do best, which is service. So be on
the lookout for some e-mail during winter intersession for service opportunities. If you need rides for any future events just shoot
us an e-mail or call/test us and we’ll work something out! Enjoy the rest of this newsletter and happy holidays! Yours in service, leadership, and fellowship,
Jia Xing Shi Jia Xing Shi

New York Speaking
Ronald McDonald House and other events
By Robin Zodan
At the end of September, I went to the Ronald McDonald House. The place was a warm and happy atmosphere. We were cooking a yummy brunch that included pancakes, French toast,
oatmeal, and chocolate chip cookies. After the cooking, we took a tour of the house. The place is
seriously every child's dream: bright colors, lots of toys, and cool rooms such as the Mets room. I was surprised they take families outside the Long Island area. I was also pleased to see Adelphi
University's plaque on the ground. It truly shows that we have made an impact in the past, and I am glad we made an impact on those families that day. I hope to return in the future.
District Large Scale Service Project
The 3rd Annual District Large Scale Service Project took place this October in Binghamton, NY. Those who attended this district event camped out at a local YMCA and were separated
into groups and given a variety of service projects, which includes: working with horses, working at a clothing store, tearing down the walls of a church, helping homeowners clean up after the recent flood, and working at a discovery center. This was the largest DLSSP to date with 63
attendees (12 of which were from our club), this was all possible thanks to our president as well
as the NYDCKI Conferences and Convention Chair, Emma Reed.
