Table of Contents 2 | Editor’s Note
Hey guys! It’s Joelle… again… I mean who else would it be? I just finished my AP U.S. History exam today and I am so happy! I might’ve not done the best job today but IT’S OVER AND I CAN’T GO BACK NOW! Let’s all bow our heads for the people who took AP exams this month, we all struggled together and we got through it together! Let us now pray for the people that are taking AP classes next year, because we all decided to give ourselves dark circles and migraines again! Enough talking about APs, let’s talk Key Club. The month of May was definitely very busy. There was an event almost every weekend and it’s so great that you guys went to them. You could spend your weekends at home in your beds, but you decide to get up and help out, and it truly is inspiring. The board just really wants to thank you for your endless dedication to our club, we wouldn’t be board members without a club, and we wouldn’t be a club without you guys. Speaking of you guys, it’s a member filled newsletter this month! Thanks so much for those of you who made my life ten times easier, by writing the articles for the events. It was a relief every time I got an article from you guys! So make sure you look for your article if you made one, and make sure you check out whom the member of the month is!! Also shout outs to QHSS, Bayside and Francis Lewis for visiting our club meeting on May 21st! It was a fun time!

“HE IS A BUTT, BUT NOT THAT MUCH OF A BUTT!”
What is the eliMiNaTe project? With The Eliminate Project, Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. Neonatal tetanus kills one baby every nine minutes—nearly 60,000 newborn children every year. A significant number of women also die due to maternal tetanus. The effects of the disease are excruciating—tiny newborns suffer repeated, painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch. To eliminate MNT from the Earth, 129 million mothers and their future babies must be immunized. This requires vaccines, syringes, safe storage, transportation, thousands of skilled staff and more. It will take $110 million—and the dedicated work of UNICEF and every member of the Kiwanis family. Kiwanis and UNICEF joined forces to tackle iodine deficiency disorders, achieving one of the most significant public health successes of the 20th century. Now, together, they are eliminating MNT from the face of the Earth. In doing so, the project will reach the poorest, most neglected mothers and babies with additional lifesaving health care. The end of this one disease means the beginning of better health for so many families. -Taken directly from Kiwanis.org To find out more about the eliMiNaTe project check out: http://sites.kiwanis.org/Kiwanis/en/theELIMINATEproject/home.aspx Or ask one your board members!
We helped in eliMiNaTe
eliMiNaTe week was during May 5th through May 9th. To spread awareness about Maternal Neonatal Tetanus, our club designated an activity each day of they that all the members could participate in. Our week went a little like this:
| Change your Facebook profile picture to BLUE Some of the members changed their profile pictures blue for the first day of eliMiNaTe week to spread awareness.
| Give up and give some Starting on Tuesday our Treasurer, Samantha Chan, collected donations from our members that will go towards the eliMiNaTe project! We’ve raised over $50!!
Wednesday & Thursday
It’s called a Poster Challenge
For Wednesday and Thursday, we challenged our members to find 6 different eliMiNaTe posters for hours! They all had fun with it, since they got to take selfies and receive credit for it!
For Friday, we asked our members to wear blue, to support the project! We had a sea of blue people walking the hallways that day, and it was very empowering, we’re lucky to have such dedicated members!
Thanks everyone who participated in eliMiNaTe week! It means so much to the board and all of Key Club that you dedicated a part of your day each week to help support! We are all slowly making a change, one day at a time! Keep talking about the eliMiNaTe project, spread the word to everyone you know! Our goal is almost reached and you can still keep helping no matter what week!
Made in May Kiwanis Spaghetti Luncheon
@Daniel Lee | Spaghetti Luncheon
I don’t often get to attend many Key Club events, but for those events I have, they’ve all been worthwhile. Recently, I got to attend the Spaghetti Luncheon on May 5th, serving food to veterans at Fort Totten. We arrived to the location, but we didn’t know which building to enter… I meant we decided to “explore the area.” Eventually we decided that we explored enough, and we finally entered the right building. We met with other Key Clubbers from another school and decided to take shifts in serving lunch to many soldiers. Afterwards, we got the chance to enjoy the food in order to prevent our stomachs from eating itself in hunger. Soon after we finished eating, we had to serve dessert, which was rejected by most, which was understandable after I ate a “few” cookies. If diabetes had a flavor, it would be the flavor of the dessert I ate… Anyway, we grouped up and heard speeches from other people, thanking us for our work and the work of those serving in the military. At the end of the day, it’s really that genuine, warm feeling you get after you given to someone else that makes these events worthwhile and Key Club has a unique way of offering the opportunities to experience it. There’s a famous quote by Winston Churchill that said, “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” -Gilbert Chen
Made in May
TD Five Boro Bike Tour By Gulam Islam
On May 4th, 5 other clubbers and I participated in volunteering at the 5 Boro Bike Tour presented by TD Bank. We were assigned to Astoria Park (which was coincidentally in my area). Throughout the day we were given various assignments and activities to do. Before we were going to start our job, we provided a nice breakfast bag along with some coffee. We were also given T-Shirts to represent the tour, which you saw on the front cover of the newsletter. This was just the first portion of the day. Our first task was to set up our food tent. In the event there were many tents. Cardozo Key Club was to display and distributes Utz. Pretzels. Once our Station was set up the organizer had a fellow clubber (Senior Member, Timothy Wong), and me to set-up some signs. The job required us to move a heavy metal base, cinderblocks, a metal pole, and the sign itself. Once we completed this task, the two of us were assigned another job to fill and transport containers of water. Luckily, this was the last of annoying tasks to do…or so I thought. It was that time of die where things sort of got hectic, and out of control. Timothy and I were stationed to be security at one of the park exits, where we were to stop bikers from going the wrong way. If you ask me, this was a poor decision made. There were some people that wouldn’t listen, and eventually Timothy and I were just ignored. The rush hour started to calm down, and it was time to clean the mess that was left behind. It started with tearing down all empty boxes and disposing them. After that we were told to pick up all left over banana peels and put them in compost containers. We also had to tear down fences and barricades. After about 20 minutes of collective cleaning it was time to call it a day, and pick up our lunch. Unfortunately, they didn’t have enough lunches for all the volunteers so I decided to leave without taking one. Throughout the day, there were some nuances. However, there were some moments that cancel out any sort of annoyance that happened that day. If you look at one of the pictures, one of them is of Junior Member Bianca Fernandez, dressed in cardboard boxes. The whole time we were putting the boxes on her, and filling them with pretzels I could not stop laughing. It was just me who got a kick out of it too, participants would also see this and chuckle or laugh to themselves. It’s the things like these that make annoying tasks worth it. The memories created today like this one, made me really enjoy the event. I hope to attend next year with more numbers!
Made in May DIVISIONAL TRAINING CONFERENCE What’s up? KEY CLUB! I went to my first Divisional Training Conference this past weekend. As the current Divisional Executive Assistant of Division 8, I not only took part in many workshops such as Making Meetings Move and bond with other Divisional officers, but also met tons of key clubbers from all over New York! I even saw some familiar faces from middle school,small world isn’t it? My favorite part of DTC was KFAIR. We don’t do many interdivisional of events; therefore I thought it was a great session to break the ice and to interact with other key clubbers! Coming to DTC this year has increased by love for Key Club and I can’t wait to participate in the Fall Rally this fall! -Division 8 Executive Assistant Kelly Song
On May 17th, we went to the Divisional Training Conference held at Bayside High school. DTC was one of the best opportunities for me to meet so many other club officers and build on our friendships. Not only was I able to meet other Key Clubbers within our division, Division 8, but I was also able to meet others from Division 8A and Division 11. I’m so glad that I went because I was able to learn so much more about Key Club and what I can do as president to improve our club status, our connections with others and how we can get more involved with the community. I also learned how I could build on my leadership and communication skills. One of my most memorable experiences at this event was attend the “Making Meetings Move” workshop. I really enjoyed how we played icebreakers to reduce the tension and awkwardness in the room. Even though we were all dressed up in business casual attire, I still felt comfortable just being myself and opening up to others. I can’t wait to take some icebreakers back to our home club to develop and build new friendships! -Michelle Tam
Let’s Shine a Light On: Japan Day By Joelle Chaves
It started out as a very stressful day, I woke up later than usual, had 40 minutes to get to the Flushing meet-‐up, those 40 minutes having to encompass time to get ready and a 30 minute bus ride. Although with a little bit of positivity and hope I got to the meet-‐up with a few minutes to spare. Upon arriving, our meet-‐up leader, Kevin Chu, was nowhere to be found. I didn’t worry too much at first since we still had a few more minutes before we had to leave. Michelle Tam and I kept calling him, but there was no answer to anything. We all just decide to leave, and left messages for Kevin saying to just go directly to Central Park. *** We got to Central Park in one piece, even though the 7 would not move for a good 15 minutes, and without our team leader. Gulam Islam was already there to meet us at the Charity Tent where we were assigned to help. The morning people immediately started their shift, guiding people to the tent, holding up signs, and distributing/modeling shirts. The afternoon people had the choice of either hanging out by the tent, which I did, or go around and do the activities provided at the event. After a few minutes I decided to walk around see what was going on in other places at the event. I passed by the face painting station, where they were starting to set up, the calligraphy tent, where some people were already lining up; at this time runners were starting to come back from the race. The runners looked both exhausted and happy. Their reward was getting to enjoy the food and activities provided at the event. After most of the runner had arrived, the event had started. It began with them announcing the top three runners, in both the male and female category. Then they started to have more and more entertainers come on stage, which made the event much more livelier. Michiko Nozu was announced the winner of the annual Japan Day Art Contest. Her artwork (provided below) looked so beautiful on stage, as did she. The festival was well under its way at this point, with more and more people donating money for shirts at the charity tent and the volunteers being very much into their work. It was time for the volunteers to go get lunch, in order to switch shifts. The afternoon people got their food, hung out a little bit then went to get the work started. The morning people then got their food and enjoyed the rest of the festival. They got to take pictures with Hello Kitty, get pieces from the calligraphy tent, and get their face painted and more food. Towards the end of the event, we were asked to distribute and endless, or it seemed like it was, supply of snacks. We emptied out box after box, a lot of the people were very happy to get free snacks, as were we when all the boxes were finally empty. To end our volunteer day, we helped collapse the charity tent; some of us getting a little injured but it was all good. We went to the train station, after a pit stop at a big rock, to take some group pictures. Overall this day was very eventful, and full of life. I haven’t appreciated the Japanese culture enough before this event, but Japan Day has opened my eyes to the beauty of it all. I will definitely come back next year, and maybe the years after that.
*** Kevin got there 40 minutes late, after informing us that he fell asleep in his living room after getting ready and left his phone in his room so he couldn’t hear all our calls. He got switched to the afternoon shift, where he caused more trouble.***
Made in May AIDS Walk
Walker Perspective: The AIDS Walk on March 18th, 2014 was an amazing experience for me. At first, I thought that walking about 6.2 miles was a little discouraging and tedious, but at the end of the day, I realized that I enjoyed the thrilling experience and fabulous service. I heard about this event from a club in my school known as Key Club. I thought of attending because I assumed that it would be a interesting experience that I can reflect on in my life. I attended as a walker with my friends whom some were also part of the Cardozo Key Club Board. I enjoyed the amazing experience of spectacular service and an encouraging staff of volunteers. This brought a smile upon my face. But most of all, I couldn't forget all the smiles I saw after he walk and the fact that we all were doing it for a good cause. I would definitely recommend this event to many other clubs and associations who wants a part in helping others. -Troy Cao Walker Perspective: One of the May events was the AIDS Walk, which was held on the 18th this year. I participated with Cardozo Key Club in this club to walk for those who aren’t able to. Arguing with my parents at 6 in the morning, about whether I'm would be going to this event or not wasn’t very fun. On top of that, I regret underestimating the 6.2 miles of walking. Every time we reached a checkpoint, it made me think the walk finished. Checkpoint 1 was after 1 ½ and Checkpoint 2 was after 3 miles. In the middle of the walk, I started to think, "Why did I sign up for this event again?” I didn't get to eat anything before or during the walk. When I was half a mile away from the endpoint, I really wanted to give up. I was so sore, tired, and had no energy to do anything. However, after the walk finished, I realized that I never regretted going to this event and that it was actually a fun event! The fact that we walked for those who can't is absolutely amazing. To be honest, with Key Club, everything was worth it! I know for a fact that no matter how much I complain, I would always be extremely excited over Key Club events and meeting new people through them. Although I didn't realize at the moment, I enjoyed this event a lot. The AIDS Walk was another wonderful event. It was totally all worthwhile and I am already looking forward to the upcoming events. -Jane Park
On May 18th, I woke up at 4 in the morning ready to take on the day. A day filled with cute little dogs, and people with so many questions. We arrived at a quiet Central Park, walked to the Team Information Tent, and were given many tasks to complete. We were asked to set up team tables and then proceed to stations to help out the walkers if they had any questions. It was fun pointing people to different areas of the event, from the stage to the Star Walkers Tent and to the team tables. Holding up a sign telling people to ask you for help made me feel like I was important, it was a good feeling. After an hour or two of helping people, the walkers started to die down, as they proceeded to the actual walk itself. Our job now was to collapse the team tables and clean up the strip leading to the Bandshell Area where the food, and other activities were located. Cleaning this strip was made so much easier by the fact that there were so many of us volunteers from Dozo. After cleaning up the strip we got to sit down and eat our lunch that was provided to us. After some jokes and laughs we met up with the Dozo walkers and told stories of hurt feet, and back pain. Overall it was a fun event, it was a new feeling to volunteer, after two years of walking. -Joelle Chaves
Astoria Park Alliance Day Astoria Park Alliance Day was a fitting event for Key Club and New York Cares. A day filled with fun and hard work providing volunteers the experience in working together to get the job done. The event started off with an instructional and learning experience where we learned that mugwort are used medicinally and as herbs. However, mugwort are also a nonnative invasive plant which's roots grow deep into the soil and thus depletes the water supply and nothing can grow in their vicinity. In order to manage the problem, volunteers pulled out the mugwort, shake the soil off, and then place it into a pile. We were told to let the pile of mugwort to dry in the sun and it would be used in a positive way. Next, we collected tree branches and placed that into a group and flatten them out by either breaking them into smaller pieces or jumping on them. Afterwards, the real work began when we helped the gardener plant trees by providing the manual labor work of shoveling mud and soil onto wheelbarrows. Looking back at what it looked like before all our hard work, the area was wild and unmanaged but afterwards turned out to become more appealing. The fresh planted trees and the cleaned up area serves to prove that community service offers a new aspect to giving the earth a hand. It symbolizes a do good-feel good relationship where doing accomplishing our task gave us memories to remember and smiles on our face. Get outside and volunteer for a good cause and help your community transform into a better and more beautiful place to live. -Vicky Zhang Background | @Kalvin Chi
Made in May Color Run
The Color Run was an experience I'll never forget. When we arrived, all the volunteers were split up into groups and assigned color zones (pink, orange, blue, purple, and yellow) The color zone I was assigned was pink. Before the run started, we ran around to the other color zones to have some other colors on our clothes. When it finally started, it got extremely hectic. Our group was split up into two groups. One group would stand there and throw the colored powder at the runners. The other group would refill the bottles with the powder. The colored powder was blowing everywhere due to the wind but it was a good thing we had masks to cover our nose and mouths. However, the color also got into our eyes, making it sting a lot. For almost two hours, the only color I saw was pink. I ended up with pink hair, eyelashes, eyebrows, clothes, and shoes!! By the end, we were all sick of the color pink. Overall, the color run was unforgettable and I hope I'll be able to do it again next year. -Samantha Chan
The NYC Color Run was an awesome experience. I worked as a volunteer there with my friends (we were together as a community service club from our high school). We had so much fun seeing each other, cheering people on, and throwing powdered paint everywhere. I saw a lot of people that I haven’t seen in a while, and I didn’t expect them to be there at all. The color run let me spend a lot of time with my current friends and helped me catch up with a couple of old friends, too! Next year, I plan on coming back, this time as a runner. -Chloe Ong I was assigned to the Purple Color Zone along with other members of the club. Our job was to throw paint at the runners. Before the race even started, we were anxious to throw paint. So we did just that except we threw it at each other. To kill some more times before the racers got to our checkpoint, which was the final check point we took a lot of goofy photos and decorated ourselves with paint. We also decided to play Ninja, a game to knock out each player by touching one’s hand in one swift movement. Eventually it was time to get ready for the incoming runners. The first waves were calm but down the middle things got crazy. There were so many people, so many faces, and purple paint everywhere. There were some racers that were too invested in the event and started to get into our paint barrels but we had fun being able to throw paint at all of them. Overall I enjoyed the event, and would love to go next year! -Ken Chen
Made in May Relay For Life By Joelle Chaves
Relay For Life has always been my favourite event. My freshman year Relay For Life was when I met my good friend Bonnie Yam, and this year was our 2 year anniversary! I know it sounds funny but milestones like that are important. It also makes it very special since it was during an event where we celebrate survivors. Survivors at this event, give you so much hope. They give you so many stories and inspiring moments. They tell you how their whole family felt about their diagnoses, how they felt, and how they feel now about being a survivor. It makes you realize that you really can’t take anything for granted. One moment you might be sitting at home having fun with your family, and then the next you’re sitting in a doctor’s office getting one of the worst news you could ever get in your entire life. Being surrounded by survivors give you a sense of self, you aren’t here for long so make everything you do worthwhile. The event started out a little rainy, I was very disappointed, although it did clear our after a few moments which made me much happier. The bus ride was pretty much like any bus ride you can expect. Once we got there I had to sign us in, along wit our treasurer Samantha Chan, after some bickering we got everything settled. The other members had already set-‐up the blankets and were either lying down or playing ultimate Frisbee. The rest of the day went pretty well. Everyone seemed to be having fun. Ultimate Frisbee takes a lot of you apparently; I wouldn’t know I hate moving. The rest of the day was just hanging out with each other. You get to learn about each other during events like this, where you’re just allowed to sit around and relax with each other. Sometimes you hear people’s stories that you wouldn’t think you’d ever hear. Relay For Life has always been an amazing event for me. The entertainment, like the dancers and instructors, the food, pasta and fried rice and wraps, and of course the survivors, are so amazing. The coordinators of the event give so much to the people that are there. They never come short. We all had so much fun, and next year will definitely be better, since we plan on staying overnight. Thank you to everyone who came to this event, and made it amazing. You are all so great for spending a Saturday night for survivors.
Movie Review of the Month: X-Men Days of Future Past
I give this movie a 3 out of 5 stars. The plot was all over the place. It was more about the professor and his life and his affairs with Mystique. There was barely any action. The beginning 10 minutes had no dialogue, so all you saw was fighting but didn’t know what was going on. Maybe I’m just being bias because I haven’t watched the past X-Men movies; I was never really interested in the franchise at all. It was just the atmosphere of being with friends that made me go to the event. I’m more of a Spiderman-Captain America guy. Those superheroes I applaud. I don’t think I remembered one death in that movie; it was not as action packed as I thought it would’ve been. The only real positive part of the movie was Ellen Page and Katniss Everdeen, I mean Jennifer Lawrence. I didn’t know they were part of the movie, it was a very nice surprise, they were so beautiful. Overall the movie was okay, I think that fact that I spent it with my friends made it much better than it actually was. I certainly recommend more students to join in on these types of events, as Key Club is not only a club, but also a second-home to hundreds of students. -William Zhang
Member of the Month Gilbert Chen, is definitely one of the few people
that can make my stomach hurt, just by making side comments. Other than being undeniably hilarious, Gilbert is also very reliable and kind. If you ask him to come to an event the morning of he will, ask him to write you an article he will, he’ll save you from falling off the train, and make sure that he’ll be there to be your bodyguard in any situation. Thanks for being so dedicated to Key Club, Gilbert! You’ve spent so many hours with us, and it’s amazing how you never stop trying to change the world, one small deed at a time. Thanks again Gilbert, you definitely deserve to be the member of the month.
It's a lot easier to do good work when you have good words to say and work with good people. Mar k Harmon

Thank you guys for constantly always working so hard and giving up your precious weekends and hours of sleep just to go out to get involved in giving a helping hand to the world. Although it may seem like going to walks are like nothing, it really leaves a big impact. Walking helps raise awareness about a cause that we’re fighting against and helps motivate those who are facing the cause to keep fighting on and to stay strong. Even though serving food to veterans and their families may not seem like we did much from our point of view, it meant a lot to them. Just by doing these types of small acts of kindness, we’re able to put a smile on someone’s face. I really love doing “hands on” events where we can actually get involved; it really can lighten up someone’s day, regardless of if you know them or not. As for Japan Day, I really hope you guys had as much as I did with the lovely weather and happy atmosphere. I really want to thank you guys for showing up the AIDS walk, it’s one of the biggest walks we go to in our service year! Ha-ha, I’m so glad it wasn’t pouring like last year! I know we’ve been all busy with the amount of school work we’ve been getting, in addition to the APS and upcoming finals, but I really can’t express how grateful I am to see you guys at events just enjoying yourselves while helping out others with all the school work piled. Just hang in there! We’re almost done with the school year! But hey, that doesn’t mean we don’t do events during the summer; there’s never a set time for giving back to the community. I’m so proud of all you for making it so far! Keep up the amazing work guys! Yours in service, Michelle Tam 2014-2015 President Benjamin N. Cardozo Key Club New York District Division 8
