Greetings from Your Lieutenant Governor

Dear Division 28, The Key Club Year is coming to an end, and it is so hard to believe that District Convention is less than a month away. You guys are truly inspirational, and all of your service around the community in the last year has touched the lives of so many. Keep up the amazing work D28, and remember that ever single minute you spend serving the community is changing the world around you in such a positive light. I am so honored that I got to serve as your Lieutenant Governor for the past year, and as I leave the position I want to express how much I have enjoyed, and loved being LTG of the best and most spectacular Division in the Pacific Northwest, and in all of Key Club. Remember to always keep service in your heart, and no matter what is going on in life, if you are serving, you can always find love. Remember that in hard times, you always have your Key Club family to lean back on, and depend on. Remember that the things you have done in Key Club, and the people’s lives you have touched along the way will never be forgotten. I hope to see many of you at DCON, and remember to always stay classy Division 28. In Love in Service,

Lisa Antonio Division 28 Lieutenant Governor

This year’s District Project is….ELIMINATING MNT! What is MNT? In 30 countries around the world, maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT) can quickly turn the joy of childbirth into tragedy. MNT kills one baby every nine minutes. Its effects are excruciating — tiny newborns suffer repeated, painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch. There is little hope of survival. And tetanus kills mothers too.

Can MNT be stopped? Yes! MNT is highly preventable. Just three doses of a 60-cent immunization protect mothers, who then pass on the immunity to their future babies. Together, Kiwanis and UNICEF can stop this disease.

Who suffers from MNT? MNT is caused when tetanus spores, found in soil everywhere, come into contact with open cuts during childbirth. The disease strikes the poorest of the poor, the geographically hard to reach and those without health care.

Why hasn't MNT been eliminated already? UNICEF has helped to successfully eliminate MNT in many countries. But in 30 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and North America, it still strikes babies and mothers who have little or no access to health care — either because they are poor, live in remote areas or are caught in humanitarian emergencies. More funds and resources are needed to reach all babies and mothers at risk.

What is Key Leader? Key Leader is a weekend experiential leadership program for today's young leaders. This lifechanging event focuses on service leadership as the first, most meaningful leadership-development experience. Participants begin by attending a Key Leader conference, which is a weekend retreat. Large and small group workshops, discussions and team-building activities take place over the course of the weekend. Students have opportunities to learn leadership skills that will help them to change their schools, communities, and world for the better.

Personal Experience, Going to Key Leader you learn a lot about how to deal with people and situations that would happen in everyday life. You see the difference between people’s mindsets and learn how to use everyone’s strengths in a team to your advantage, and how to find someone’s strength. You get to meet a lot of new, amazing people who you can connect with. If you are thinking of running for a higher Key Club position defiantly think about attending this once in a life time event.
