In Caring and Serviceâ€Ś Omak Key Club: The Omak Key Club did the Draw the Line service project. This informed all students at Omak High School through a campaign that 8/10 students choose not to participate in underage drinking. This project encouraged healthy youth behavior.
Okanogan Key Club: The Okanogan Key Club laid flags on the veteranâ€™s graves for Memorial Day. This is an annual service project the club completed. They honored the deceased veterans of two local cemeteries for this holiday.
Liberty Bell Key Club: This club put on a mock car crash they do every year. The Key Clubbers filled the positions of car crash victims, amputees, and the assailant. One even rode in a helicopter. This project gathers much participation from the community.
March of Dimes and Kiwanis International Beginning in the 1940â€™s, the K-Family has raised thousands of dollars with the March of Dimes. Kiwanis serves each child by improving the health of babies. Proper pre-natal health helps minimize birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality. Though March of Dimes was founded by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in an order to combat polio, the organization has spread its range of efforts to children worldwide. Key Club assists Kiwanis and the March of Dimes by raising awareness, and fundraising. March of Babies is the largest annual fundraiser for this project. The more Kiwanis support received, the more babies live to enjoy a healthy childhood. Full term pregnancies and pre-natal health are crucial is avoiding serious life-long conditions. Premature birth is the leading cause of infant mortality within the first month of life; 1 in every 8 babies in born premature. Those who survive are at risk of cerebral palsy, underdeveloped lungs, and vision and hearing loss. Support March of Dimes to give every child the life everyone deserves.
Relay for Life- Carnival of Hope
The DCM for May took place at the Okanogan County Relay for Life. This year the theme of the American Cancer Society sponsored event was Carnival of Hope. Division 9 had two teams for the Relay for Life, the Narwhals. We had attendance from 75% of our clubs with Okanogan Key Club, Omak Key Club, and Liberty Bell Key Club all present. Many Key Clubbers stayed the night, and 5 walked through the night. In the morning, the Okanogan Kiwanis Club made pancakes for all those at the Relay. This DCM was a blast, and helped raise awareness for cancer.
