A Letter from the LTG Hello Ninja Turtles, Happy holidays! The year has gone by really quickly, and it has been amazing serving all of you. Just think, in a few weeks, it will be the New Year! Here’re some stats to keep track of what we’ve accomplished so far: 1. $600 for UNICEF* 2. $900 for PTP* 3. $1691 total funds raised 4. 1677 Hours of Service *approximate and not finalized

LISTEN TO ME: LTG Jeffrey Xiong in action! So COOL!

With that brings many new things, but many old things will stay the same. Take the time to be grateful for everything that you take for granted, and also reach out to people that have been close to you during this holiday season. Don’t be afraid of change, try and stick to those New Year’s resolutions, and enjoy the remainder of the year! I’ll see you around and I hope you continue to stay active in service. What you do truly does mean a lot. P.S. If you are reading this, then the world will most likely not have ended.

Love, Jeffrey

San Marino Car Wash The car wash at San Marino High School on December 8th was a revolutionary car wash. We, present Key Club members, were at a disadvantage: low supplies, insufficient number of workers, and most importantly, no “Car Wash” signs during critical moments. I remember it was roughly 4 P.M. when our allies had dropped off fresh supplies of paint and poster papers. I knew at this moment that God was watching over us, and victory would surely prevail. Without a moment of hesitation, I came up with a revolutionary idea! Instead of using paint brushes, I used my hands and fingers. I named this skill “Finger Painting.” Furthermore, as soon as I dispatched my poster, the amount of customers tripled in roughly less than an hour! It is believed that the SMHS car wash event was successful, because of Jeffrey’s eminent presence or Jason’s car washing skills. But I know for a fact that it was my poster that had brought us victory on that day.

features Feeding the Homeless


The holiday season is a time of breaks, sleep, Christmas music, and of course, giving back. One way Key Clubbers decided to help out this season was by attending the Lake Avenue Church’s Feeding the Homeless event, which takes place every Sunday in the Pasadena church. Many San Marino Key Clubbers bonded over their mutual love of volunteering and respect for those who are less fortunate. From 2 to 6 p.m., Key Clubbers first helped set up tables with cute forks and plates and cook delicious food! When the time came for people to eat, these volunteers scooped out heaps of food and poured drinks for them. Helping the homeless produced joyous feelings of happiness, for Key Clubbers know that the work they have done will impact the lives of everyday people. Volunteering is one of the most rewarding experiences one can ever have.
