LTG’s Introductory Hello NINJAS! I am Jonathan Alcantara and I will be serving you as the 2013-2014 Division 13 South Lieutenant Governor. I have been a part of Key Club since my freshman year at St. John Bosco High School and once I became a part of this club, I have quickly embraced the friendly and caring environment this club provides. The experience of Key Club changed my life, teaching me to how to become a stronger leader and a better person. Witnessing so many key clubbers having a strong passion to help others motivated me to do the same. As Lieutenant Governor, I have made goals to help continue the

growth and success of our division. These goals include uniting our division, developing leadership in our members, and having our members recognize the importance of service. I look forward to continue serving you all and I will make sure to do my best to make Division 13 South even greater than before. If you have any comments, questions, or concerns, feel free to call me or email me. As a ninja of service, Jonathan Alcantara Lieutenant Governor 2013-2014 Division 13 South Ninjas | Region 8 Cali-Nev-Ha District Email:

Division Updates: Old News Relay for Life Bellflower HS l June 28 - 30

Relay for Life, an annual fundraiser geared towards the advancement of cancer research and finding a cure for this disease, brings together good people with the common goal of fighting cancer. Our Key Clubbers have again seized this opportunity to aid their community by helping to set up, work during the event, and clean up after the event reached its end. With some working for three consecutive scorching hot days of their weekend, Key Clubbers helped in any way requested by the event’s coordinators. The first day was spent hanging posters along the sidelines of the track, setting up canopies for the various booths and carrying things from one side of the field to the other. On the second day, after receiving a generous pancake breakfast form the coordinators, Key clubbers continued to run errands for the event and played dodge ball in the children’s’ area to pass any free time. The third day, to finish up the event, was spent cleaning and packing up the event. This event allowed members to showcase their dedication to do service even under the heat and their delight in working for their community.


Division Updates: Old News ABC Fun Run Cerritos Regional Park l June 22nd Instead of a Color Run, a Glow-In-The-Dark Run or a Bubble Run, what’s a better way to kick off the summer than with a Fun Run? On June 22nd, the ABC Unified School District held their Inauguration into the Summer Fun Run at Cerritos Regional Park. Many volunteers woke up bright and early to help at this event, including the Key Club members of Division 13 South. Volunteers were asked to be at certain checkpoints throughout the run. Division 13 South handed out water to the thirsty runners who were definitely grateful for the refresher, even asking some Key Club members to just throw water at them! The run was split up into two events, an adults’ run and a kids’ run. After both runs ended, a Wellness Fair was held at the park’s basketball courts filled with booths. Some booths taught people how to be healthier while some booths were about education and ways to get ahead in school. A lot of these booths handed out free goodies for everyone. There was also food trucks were stationed in the parking lot for some delicious lunch. A stage was set up for performers, mostly singers, but even a Zumba class was held for everyone! Afterwards Division 13 South took down the booths and helped clean up the park. All the supervisors were super impressed and grateful by how well the Key Club members worked and the enthusiasm they brought to the run. Can’t wait for next year!


Division Updates: Old News Officer Training Conference Kiwanis Hall l June 30th from 1:00 – 3:00 pm The 2013 Key Club Officer Training Conference had occurred on June 30 th, where Division 13 South Ninjas and Division 13 North Green Monkeys came together to create an enjoyable OTC experience. Before the actual conference had started, the two divisions had participated in an icebreaker called, “I love my neighbor”. In this icebreaker, the participants gather around in a circle and whoever is in the middle starts off by saying a statement such as “I love my neighbor who …” and if that statement applies to someone, the people who relate to the statement must switch spots with someone else and whoever is left must go in the center and continue with another statement. While doing this icebreaker, everyone who had been in the center had introduced themselves by saying their name, grade, division, and position. However, the entertaining icebreaker had come to an end and brought the start of the conference. D13S Lieutenant Governor Jonathan Alcantara and D13N LTG Jonathan Kim kicked off the meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance, followed by the Key Club Pledge. The conference included presentations/workshops that were constructed to help assist and educate the officers with their duties and what is also to be expected of them and the division in order to have a successful term. After the LTGs’ presentation on the goals for the “Golden” year and a few presentations, which included the presidents’ presentation by D13S’ Bienna Lapuz and D13N’s Jenny Kim and the vice presidents’ presentation by D13S’ Steven Siphengphone and D13N’s Melissa Ly, another icebreaker took place. This icebreaker had many of the Key Clubbers learn fun and interesting facts about each other. In this ice breaker, each Key Clubber must find another Key Clubber that they have never met before, introduce themselves, and answer the question that the LTGs would ask, for example, “What would you do for a Klondike Bar?” After a few questions, it was time to go back into the conference. Soon after, Gregory Abellanosa of D13S and Amanda Lao of D13N had teamed up to present the secretary presentation and went in depth on how to create an accurate Monthly Report Form with ease and lastly, the two LTGs finished the OTC with presenting the treasurers’ workshop. This year’s OTC can be remembered as extremely informative, especially for the new officers and even for the returning officers. It was definitely a pleasure to be a part of such a remarkable event that kicked off the summer for Key Club.
