Presidents Note Cannot believe that I have already served for my members for two months already! In these two months, I experienced the enthusiasm of the members, the responsibility it entails, and the bliss after successful service events. Thank you to the seniors and dedicated members who have made a significant contribution for the club throughout the year. Though seniors are leaving, the achievements they have made and the chances they have given to underclassmen will not be forgotten, and remember “Once a Kiwanian, Always a Kiwanian”. Though cliché, it is all about the members-thanks to you guys, the club is as great as it is. One of the beauties found in Key Club is the power to change one’s life. As Key Clubbers we are able to grow into a strong family, supporting each other not only in service events, but also in school and personal life. As Key Clubbers, we mature together, teach together, and laugh together. This feeling of unity is something I definitely treasure. In Key Club, I grew not only as a friend and a volunteer, but also as a leader. I am grateful to those who gave me this opportunity and those who continuously make my new term easier. I cannot wait to provide opportunities for the members to grow in leadership and for more to join and have fun in Key Club in the upcoming, new school year. I hope that all of you will have a great summer. In this summer, there will be several service events incorporated in a social atmosphere, so stay active while keeping in touch with friends in Key Club!
Vice Presidents’ Notes
As the school year ends we can look back at a plethora of accomplishments from being the best club in the division for many months to earning the district awards to fulfilling one of the KEY aspects of the club- serving the community while having a fun time. Although we had guidance from past and present officers, none of these memories would be possible without the help of the members. It's is the members who make up the club and who have the most opportunities. The opportunity to grow in leadership though not only participating in the club level, but going above and beyond by actively learning about Key Club International on their own and being a part of its many nuances such as the divisional level. Key Club isn't just another clubit's a way we have fun, a way we learn, and so much more. In short it's our way of life. Despite the seniors leaving, the key club bonds won't since even though high school may end life goes on. To the underclassmen stay involved throughout the summer and the new year as you wouldn't want life to pass you by. The new year coming is going to be one of the most exciting yet as we explore and promote new areas of Key Club we only recently began to find - We'll be there and we hope to have you with us. We're all Key Clubbers and all one ohana~

Thank you for the wonderful memories that we will carry with us throughout our lives, from seeing the way of service and altruism can truly impact and transform the world around us, to allowing us the opportunity to cultivate leadership as servant leaders.

Last month on May 19th, our Key Club assembled to wash cars and raise money for Relay for Life. Relay for Life is a volunteerdriven cancer fundraising event of the American Cancer Society, an event that Key Club actively participates in. The carwash was held near BJ’s Restaurant in the Commons at Chino Hills. Everyone enjoyed washing cars in the nice weather and splashing each other with water during our down time. Member Jacquelyn Li, said, “It was a really fun way to help the community,” while Rommel Pineda stated, “It’s a good way to raise money.” We raised a total of $160.00, which is more than our original goal of $100.00. Thank you for your hard work Key Clubbers and watch out for more fundraising events to come!
