Key Facts Motto Caring-Our Way of Life

Mission Statement “Key Club is an international student-led organization which provides its members with opportunities to provide service, build character and develop leadership.�

Pledge I pledge, on my honor, to uphold the Objects of Key Club International; to build my home, school and community; to serve my nation and God; and combat all forces which tend to undermine these institutions

Hola Key Clubbers! It’s finally springtime; get ready for tans, sunburns in my case, fun times outdoors with friends and only a month left of school. But remember to keep up that volunteering! As a division, we have a lot to work on; this month, let’s have Key Clubbers attend May DCM. We need to grow together as a division, not just as a club. I want Division 64 to get more connected within our division, and grow as a group. There will be future events that will provide bonding for our division, like Relay for Life. Each Key Club will have a team and the team that raises the most money by fundraising will get a prize! If you have an idea of an reward email me by the contact information provided. I can’t wait to see all of you at my May DCM, it should be a lot of fun! Stay Classy,

Katie McAnnis

What is the ELIMINATE Project? The Eliminate Project is a joint project with Kiwanis and UNICEF to internationally terminate 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. 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.

EDUCATE yourself. ADVOCATE to the world. INVEST to save and protect. ELIMINATE maternal and neonatal tetanus.

What is Relay? At Relay, teams of people camp out at a loch high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events up to 24 hours long.

Luminaries As the sun sets over campsites and darkness falls, the night is brightened by the glow of illuminated bags called luminaria, each bearing the name of someone who has battled cancer. Some celebrate cancer survivors, while others help us honor and remember those gone too soon. All represent someone special who has been profoundly affected by cancer and the family and friends who continue to fight back in their honor.
