April 2013

Issue #1 1


The Lady Behind Division 80. Hello Division 80 Key Clubbers! My name is Megan Hearn and I will be your Lieutenant Governor for the 2013-2014 year. Being pretty much a no one in Boardman to being your Lt. G has been a big change in my life, a big change for the better! I am so thankful for this opportunity to serve such an amazing group of people . This year is the year I’ll bring back leadership into our division.

.I have many goals that I’d like to meet this year , I cant achieve these goals without your help. We need to strengthen our communications and repair mistakes made last year. Together we can accomplish anything . My other focus is getting back to the roots of Key Club ; service. It feels as though Key Club has become more about politics and less about serving people . I will change this through divisional projects ; this will help connect our clubs while helping people . I can’t wait to meet each and everyone of you and make 2013-2014 the best year to be in Division 80! You can say that I’m not a normal Lt. G but that’s okay! We share a passion to serve and our diverse ways of showing that is what will bring our clubs together. Key Club is a family, and I hope by the end of my term I can help all of you see that

DCON 2013 There is no way to describe such energy and inspiration you feel at DCON , but I can try. For those of you who don’t know what DCON is , it is a Key Club district convention where every division in the district gathers and celebrates the Key Club year, and elect a new district board. This years Pacific Northwest DCON was in the beautiful city of Seattle at the Double Tree Hotel. At DCON you get to show your divisional spirit, listen to amazing speakers, go to a banquet and dance, and my favorite part : network with the other hundreds of PNW key clubbers! This DCON was very spirited and kicked off with a motivational speech from Brett Eastburn, a man with no legs and no arms but he also has no handicaps. In high school he was a basketball player, a football player, a wrestler, and a swimmer! The weekend followed with amazing workshops from Yoga to How to run for a higher office. I would also say that the dance was a major success , just about everyone was dancing! The 2013 DCON was amazing and with the District Board this year I think 2014 DCON will be the best yet. I hope to see all of you there.

This is going to be an amazing year! I’m excited to meet all of you , be patient with me if I forget your name or can’t answer your questions; I’m just beginning to learn the In’s and Out’s of working on District Level , but I will always help out anyway I can on our divisional level and even club level. This first month may go a little hazily , but we’ll get the hang of it. Don’t hesitate to ask me questions or ask me for help that’s one of the many reasons I’m here! This month I’m looking to accomplish our first DCM , get all of your contact information, contact our inactive clubs and make my first club visit! April is just the month to really take all the enthusiasm from DCON and use it to kick off the Key Club year so get excited!!
