Hello from LtG HQ! Ahh once again we come to that time I prefer to call the end of everything that consumes time, otherwise known as school. Although it may be the end of the school year, this year in totality is not over. Key Clubbers are still out there every day striving to make a difference in the world no matter how slight it is. I saw a post that brought light to my eyes just the other day. “A kid was getting bullied at our school today, he always does simply because he struggles to speak English properly and stutters quite a bit, but someone stepped out in front of the oncoming bully and told him, ‘if you were to stutter, would you want this every day?’ the bully shrugged his shoulders, and walked away. The boy who told him off was the head of the Panther swim team, one of the most popular kids in school. That kid GMH” This simple act of kindness exemplifies everything Key Club stands for, it was later found out that he was also the treasurer for their local Key Club. As the year goes on we might also be thinking that there is no more to continue on to, especially seniors often times come to this conclusion, but it is simply not true! For all the seniors out there, Circle K will love to have you as a new member and more and more colleges are chartering Circle K’s every day! Continue to serve like I know you can, and DFTBA! In love and caring service Ben Scranage

District One baby dies every 9 minutes from neonatal tetanus
160 babies die each day from neonatal
38 countries remain at high risk for MNT
If a baby gets MNT, it will lose its mothers touch No baby should lose their mothers touch $1.80 can stop this.
Kiwanis will help save or protect more than 61 million mothers and their future babies
On average, health education and a series of three doses of tetanus vaccine cost $1.80
Project The Two Dollar Plan: If each person In the district brings in two dollars, we will raise a total of $24,600 That is: 13,667 vaccinations Estimated 13,667 lives saved For the price of a cup of coffee What we need to do as key clubbers, is to change this. As part of the largest student led organizations in the world, we can ELIMINATE this deadly infection. With just 3 does of a 60 cent immunization, we can protect mothers who will in turn protect their future offspring. That’s just $1.80, about the price of a small coffee from Starbucks, or a small burger. Together with our Kiwanis counterpart and UNICEF, we can end something that can be prevented so easily.
Why The Eliminate Project? The answer to this is, every 9 minutes, one child or mother dies from What is known as MNT (Maternal/Neonatal Tetanus). This painful disease steals the lives of 60,000 babies from their families. In 30 countries around the world, MNT takes on a large toll because of deliveries taking place in unhygienic circumstances and because no vaccination for the deadly infection is available. The effects of this infection is excruciating. Tiny new born babies suffer repeated, painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch, turning the joy of childbirth into a tragedy.

CLUB SPOTLIGHT! Harrisburg High School
Not only are they like family to me personally, this group has fostered the last two Lieutenant Governors along with raising nearly 1,680 dollars for the Eliminate Project. The acts of service committed have always been a personal inspiration to me, most being led by their valiant president, Carol Lynch who wouldn't admit it, but puts her life and soul into making this club what it is! Congrats to Harrisburg High School, you truly deserve to be the KCI Club Spotlight, because youâ€™re just that awesome. :)
