Circle K service day It’s 24 hours of pure service. Our biggest event of the year happens each November, bringing in Circle K members from around the state and students from around the University of Michigan, raising hundreds of dollars, and of course, completing thousands of service hours. Check out all the amazing projects and shenanigans everyone partook in during CKSD this year as we blasted off into service.

Snowpia a

A Michigan district event

Snowpia was actually my first CK district wide event so I didn’t know what to expect, but it’s ended up being a lot of fun. I was actually assigned an event at gleaners I did way back in high school since I lived pretty close to wayne state at the time. I was also able to reconnect with people from my high school, interact with new people and watch them all lose to Jacob at musical chairs. It was essentially a throw back, but in a fresh, fun way!

- Diana Yassin, K-Fam Committee Member

Aside from hanging out with good friends from different universities around Michigan, I was able to volunteer at Auntie Na’s in Detroit. It was so inspiring to see how she is doing everything she can to improve the life of those in her neighborhood with whatever means she has.

- Justin Cadarette, Treasurer
