Hey Aqua Apes! It's that time of the year Apes! Christmas lights sparkling, hot chocolate, and lots of winter gear.

If you need to talk about anything, come contact me! Kayla Larot | D34N NE

Dec. 14, 2013 Candidate Training Conference Jan. 18, 2014 Executive Candidate Training Conference April 11-13 DCON

Aloha Aqua Apes! November was such a good month for Division 34 North! Lots of service, a very successful DCM, and a better home school, and community! I want say that I am very happy with the beginning of quarter 3 for the 2013-2014 term. Keep up the APEtastic work! Keep in mind, that even though you already submitted your club’s dues, you may send dues in a second bunch of dues! Dues can be sent throughout the term, to the same place. Make sure to update the Member Update Center account as well! If your club has not submitted dues, get those in as soon as possible! The deadline has passed, and all dues were supposed to be submitted by December 1st. Keep serving your communities, and building up your service records! It is member recognition, and contests season, so be sure to start working on them! If you have any questions, concerns, or just need someone to talk to, I am always here for you. Whether you need me as a Lieutenant Governor or as a friend, feel free to contact me. I love hearing from all of you! Keep Calm, and Ape ON! Going Bananas for Service, Jeremy Jimenez Division 34 North Lieutenant Governor

For the month of December, email me/ message me one thing you plan on doing this holiday season to serve your home, school, or community. This doesn’t have to be a formal email, or a formal message, but it’s a great way to start planning for your winter service season!

GOLDEN APES For being GOLDEN during the month of December!

GINA TU Not only has this Secretary from Lowell turned in every MRF on time (and many times EARLY!), she has continued to serve her members, and her community. She shows great leadership qualities, and always wears a smile on her face whenever participating in events like DCMs or club meetings. Great job Gina, and keep up the APEtastic work!


Welcome a new member to the Aqua Ape Ohana, Buringame Key Club! They are a wonderful group of bright, future leaders of the division we all serve, and they deserve to be club of the month for their hard work put into chartering. Even though they weren’t officially chartered, they continued to serve their home, schools, and communities. Good Job Burlingame!

ERIN CHAZER Erin Chazer recently attended Key Leader November 15-17, 2013. She learned lots of new skills, met lots of new people, and learned how to become a better leader. She hopes to spread this knowledge to the members she serves with. It takes a lot of courage to step out of your comfort zone, and attend a conference far away for a whole weekend. Great Job Erin!
