Green Briar I Clean-Up
The BMHS Key Club helped out with the damages caused by the flood that occurred at Greenbriar I. We were accompanied by the US Coastal Guards, BMHS football team, BTHS drama club, Red Cross, Dwyer heating and air conditioning, and more. The work ranged from tearing a bed apart and different pieces of furniture and moving it to the curb, pulling apart flooring, and packing items and clothing into boxes. Everyone that helped put forth so much hard work and dedication and we were glad to support everyone whose houses were damaged!

New to Key Club? Key Club is a student-led, international, high school organization. Our members make the world a better place through service. In doing so, we grow as individuals and as leaders by answering the call to lead, summoning the courage to engage and developing the heart to serve.
Leadership is grounded in humility and service to others. A true leader listens, recognizes, and empowers.
Character is built by everyday acts of kindness, integrity and teamwork to grow stronger relationships and communities.
Compassion for others is a cornerstone of the Key Club experience, inspiring action and service to oneâ€™s community.
We welcome people of all backgrounds and ethnicities to join in serving and making a positive difference in our world.
The Key Club Pledge I pledge, on my honor, to uphold the Objects of Key Club International; to build my home, school and community; to serve my nation and God; and combat all forces which tend to undermine these institutions.
President's Paragraph Every service year Brick Memorial Key club strives to do excel at what they are best at, community service led by the students! Here is to that service year and all the great opportunities that may come along with it. As a club, we encourage you to be the best member you can be. In the end, we are not only helping our community and the ones around us but more importantly ourselves.

District Project: Hunger in NJ
The 2018-2019 District Project is once again, Hunger in New Jersey! Hunger in NJ, as our District Project, has been such a success over the past few years. This year we hope to increase and pass our goals that we will set. Last year, we helped contribute to the District totals of:
Collected 56,000 Pounds Served 23,000 Hours Raised $62,800
This year, we must go above and beyond! In New Jersey, one out of every three people are struggling to put food on the table or are eating meals that aren't at all enough. Every pound, hour, and dollar makes a difference and impacts our home, school, and community! Bring cans to meetings and volunteer at local food banks and soup kitchens.
Come join the rest of Division 8, our division in NJ, at Fall Rally - the largest gathering of Key Clubbers in New Jersey! On Sunday, October 7th at Six Flags Great Adventure, hundreds of Key Clubbers from all over New Jersey will cheer and sleuth as Fall Rally's theme this year is Whodunnit? Donâ€™t forget nonperishable food items for our food drive, which will help contribute to ending Hunger in NJ! This event is one you will not forget, containing keynote speakers, mystery, and competitions!
Why Should I Go? Besides meeting other Key Clubbers from across New Jersey, going to Fall Rally allows you to have early access of the park for a cheaper price. To attend Fall Rally, the cost for Early Registration (before September 28th) is $40 while Onsite Registration is $45. much lower than a regular ticket price. Season pass holders pay $7. After cheering at Fall Rally and earning your hours, you get to enjoy all the rides with your friends! That night is Fright Fest too! Overall, it's a great deal and amazingly fun!

Prepare yourself for a weekend of fun, learning, and making new friends; at Key Leader, find yourself among Key Clubbers who share your passion for leadership and service. This December, get ready for the Kiwanis sponsored Key Leader, in Baptist Camp Lebanon, Lebanon NJ, from November 30th to December 2nd. At Key Leader you will attend workshops, participate in fun activities, and learn just what it means to be a leader. Key Leader is open to all high school students - so encourage your friends outside of Key Club to join! Through the Key Leader program, attendees will be immersed in an environment dedicated to learning what it means to be a leader. Over the weekend you will learn the values of personal integrity, personal growth, respect, building community, and the pursuit of excellence. These values will help mold you into a servant leader, and be a role model for everyone in your home, school, and community. Leaders emerging from the program will have forged friendships to last a lifetime! Students who have already attended Key Leader in the past will be able to apply to be Student Facilitators. These facilitators will lead their respective groups, called neighborhoods, and help ensure that everyone enjoys their weekend! Each Neighborhood will become a close-knit group, as they complete activities together over the course of the weekend, and create friendships that last a lifetime. The price of Key Leader this year is $215 for all regular attendees and $150 for Student Facilitators. I strongly encourage all of you to take the chance and explore who you are as a leader and join us at Key Leader.
