Hello Division 44 South. Welcome to March! I cannot believe how fast our Key Club year is going and that District Convention is so soon. Before the Key Club year ends, I would like you all to take the time to thank everyone who have shaped your Key Club experience. Who are those special people that sparked the spirit of service in your heart? How were they able to change your perspective? What were the service projects that opened your eyes to the goodness of Key Club? If you answered any of these questions, BEE sure to thank those individuals and appreciate the events you attended to help you get this far in your Key Club journey. Furthermore, I cannot thank the division enough but THANK YOU for giving me an opportunity to serve as a Lieutenant Governor. I am definitely honored to serve this beautiful division that never fails to show dedication and passion for Key Club. With Dino Hugs, Catherine Kim 3


Hey Dinos! We’re approaching our home stretch of the term, and I’m only going to be your division newsletter editor for another month. I had lots of fun doing it, and I learned so much more than what I would have doing anything else. Thanks to all of you who read this newsletter, even though I know that it’s not too many of you. Everybody should read it more for your next DNE, I’m sure he or she will do a better job than I did! This month we did a lot of great things as a division, and everybody needs to keep everything up! We are great. We always will be great. Have fun while you serve guys, Luke Wang

March of Dimes Steven Li | Division 44 South | Service Projects Coordinator

Do you know what March of Dimes is? March of Dimes help moms have full-term pregnancies and research the problems that threaten the health of babies. Every day 1 in 8 babies born in the U.S. arrives too soon. Premature birth can happen to any pregnant woman and can lead to premature death of baby. Premature death is a very serious and common problem in the U.S.

Did you know? March of Dimes was originally founded by President Roosevelt to combat Polio. He too had polio and could not walk.

How can we help? Key Club members help by spreading awareness of prematurity and reducing the rate of premature births. Each year, Key Clubbers help by raising funds for March of Dimes programs to help prevent prematurity. Key Clubbers around the world collect dimes in hopes that someday children would be born free of birth defects. Today, Key Club members still collect change to support the March of Dimes. March for Babies is the March of Dimes largest fundraiser and typically takes place in late April. So volunteer at the March of Babies to start preventing premature deaths!

Help March of Dimes to save babies!
