The Key Update Hello my fellow Chipmunks! When school comes around we become busy,, over encumbered, stressed, and overworked. This change from summer is that of a semi truck, to a school bus. One thing stays the same. You all still have an amazing connection, to one of the best support groups of all times. What you must realize is that Key Club may have a main focus on service, but there is so much in that focus. Service stretches way beyond the local can drive. While school may be difficult remember to reach out to those crazy insane amazingly awesome Key Clubbers that you have met. Division 74 has recently got a major social media update. We have stretched out to Twitter, Tumblr, and a website is in the works. Through all these new opportunities you can keep in contact with others and stay up with the latest Chipmunk related news. September brings an event joked about at the election rally. While there we were just talking about a benefit concert with a great group, now it is really happening. Check out pages 12/13 for the design of the ticket and some extra information. Let’s all have a great month! In love and caring service,

Ben Scranage

Who suffers from MNT? d when tetanus spores, found in soil everywhere, come into contact with ing childbirth. The disease strikes the poorest of the poor, the geographically hard to reach and those without health care.

The Youth Opportunities Fund (YOF) is an endowed fund for Key Club International held within the Kiwanis International Foundation. This fund uses earned interest to help Key Clubs and Key Club members serve the world by providing grants for service opportunities. The Youth Opportunities Fund is established through a portion of your Key Club International dues and through the purchase of G. Harold Martin Fellowships.

Project: Key to Literacy Trenton High School Key Club Trenton, Missouri Awarded US$500 in 2010 The Problem: Like most places, Missouri has struggled with slashed education budgets. In the small, impoverished town of Trenton, classroom libraries were stocked with few books and literacy rates were at risk of falling.

The Solution: Pool together the $500 awarded by YOF with $500 the club raised to purchase 544 inexpensive books through Scholastic Inc. Every school day, club members go to the elementary school, read to children in the classrooms and leave books behind as a donation. “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” by Jeff Kinney is one of the kids’ favorites.

YOF grants can help you take action. Look around and identify the things that need to get done in your school, community or world.
