September DCM and

Club Rush leadership

Key Clubbers, Club rush was extremely successful due to your overwhelming response. Thanks to you we had over one hundred students, your friends and peers, sign up. Thank you for your interest in Generation S (Service). As a Key Club we will work hard to achieve a sense of community while building the same community. This being said, we can always use more Key Clubbers like you. If you know friends or other students at Mission Hills High School that seem to have a drive towards service, or are a senior trying to fulfill a requirement, please recommend they join. The officers of this Key Club, and of the others in our Division all sense a great year coming up, filled with a dedication to service and leadership. We hope you have a great year, and that you continue to strive for the same goals.

A Letter from our LTG about the success of our September DCM: WOW. I am seriously blown away by our division’s tremendous spirit! Planning our first divisional fundraiser was insanely challenging, especially since school started not too long ago for most of us! I am here to tell you all: IT WAS A SUCCESS!!! We raised over $300 for Pediatric Trauma Program! We’re getting closer to our division’s goal of $3000 for PTP before November 19th (Fall Rally South). A great shout out to my divisional assistants (Kim Vo and Jose Espinoza) as well as the members who helped plan AND of course, ALL those that attended!! It wouldn’t have been as successful as it was if YOU weren’t there!! -Justine Hsu Lieutenant Governor

The September Divisional Council Meeting was a great success, even on MHHS’ part. All the schools had an amazing turnout, but Mission Hills’ outcome was greater than expected. I would personally like to thank all the officers that came out to support Mission Hills at the bowling alley, even if you could not stay long. It is this dedication to Key Club and service that make our group what it is. With all the people that signed up at Club Rush, I expect even greater turn out at our Spirit Meeting at the Park. Mission Hills is hosting this event, so any suggestions and feedback you have would be greatly appreciated, so would your attendance. Kenneth Johnson Club Bulletin Editor
