OPENING

The Official Chino Hills High School Key Club Newsletter Complied by the Club President with assistance from 2011 -2012 Club E. Board JUNE 2011 | VOLUME 1 |ISSUE 2

President’s Note Key Clubbers! Summer– the time where everyone unwinds and relaxes. A time to spend with family, resting, and enjoying one‘s self; although it is also a time to serve. With summer vacation, more hours during the day are open to involving yourselves in other activities, and what better activity to involve yourself in this summer than Key Club! This year, unlike others, your Club Executive Board has proposed itself to offer more opportunities for the membership to earn more hours, serve, grow, and embrace Key Club spirit through more social projects like beach clean ups and charity walks. In this issue, you will find information on what events to expect over the summer, how to grow as an individual and as a member over the summer, as well as more about what Key Club International is as a whole. I hope to see you all enjoy your vacation as well as set apart some time to still serve your community.

done separately, we will all gather together for games and fun! As for Divisional Banquet, it will be held June 18th!
