Surfing Into Service: LTG Update I have been working very hard to stya on track this month and get contact with all my clubs. I have been on vacation in California for 2 weeks so it has been hard. My vacation tied very well into the service theme with Surfin’ Into Service. Even though I did not get to surf! This month I am hoping to continue to get all the contact information and keep everyone up to date with upcoming projects, rallies and get-togethers. Another one of my goals for the month is to make sure that all the Division 9 clubs are prepared for the school year and have stayed busy during the summer months. I hope to see you all soon at my officer training which is to be explained later in the newsletter.

I know it may seem a little early to be thinking about dues, but once school starts it will come on fast. Starting thinking about them now so that your club will be prepared when the time comes. Duesare due on November 30th and the early bird deadline is November 1st. Get it in by the early bird deadline and your club will receive a patch to put on your club’s banner!

Another thing to think about with dues is to increase membership. For the bigger clubs, it is harder to get those extra members, but the more the merrier. Some suggestions for smaller clubs to get new members is to do a membership drive. Do things such as talk to teachers and ask them to hand out brochures about Key Club or your club could hold an ice cream social or pizza party to introduce kids about Key Club and get them excited.

Summer is coming to an end! Summer may be coming to an end but there is still service to be done before school starts. Make sure that your clubs are still holding meetings during the summer and keeping in contact. Also be doing service projects during the summer. It is one of the biggest times that help is needed. Summer can get really busy but with good management of the time, you can squeeze everything in. It is essential that your club continues to do service during the summer days. Have a successful summer!
Advice to the clubs: • Make sure that your club has at least 2 members attending Fall Rally and Spring Convention with dates listed previously. • Have a summer board meeting before school starts so everyone can be on the same page and also to set goals for the year. • Start thinking of fundraising ideas now instead of later. • Your club doesn’t always have to do the same service projects year after year. Switch it up a bit. • Make it a fun and interesting year!
Rebus Riddles A rebus is a picture representation of a name, word, or phrase. For example, the answer to this rebus riddle—DAYDAYOUT—is “day in, day out.” The rebus puzzles on this page are expressions you may hear your parents say to you sometime this school year.
