Key Clubbers of the Month: November and December Meet Your Officers
Outstanding Leaders: Morgan Evans Carrie Miller Sonora Metreveli Bailey Wilkerson-Cooper
Madison Bardsley President Lynell Solene Incoming President firstname.lastname@example.org
The hard work of these four Key Clubbers is what made our Toy Drive a success. They organized a special holiday party meeting to wrap and decorate the drop-off boxes, and even invited the Twin Falls Middle School Key Club to come help. They distributed the boxes to the different locations, picked up the toys, and filmed a commercial to get the word out. This year’s Kiwanis toy drive/giving tree helped more than 600 children, and the dedication of Morgan, Carrie, Sonora and Bailey definitely made a difference. Thanks for your hard work!

Outstanding Volunteers: Molly Mabel New to Key Club this year, Molly jumped right in and started volunteering. She has helped with all the major projects in the clubthe yard cleanup, bell ringing, Unicef, and decorating boxes, picking up toys, and being part of the ad for the Toy Drive. When there’s something to help with, the default answer in her mind is yes, not no. She doesn’t see her service as a chore, it’s something she enjoys. She’s even volunteered to run for an officer position. Thanks, Molly!
Dave Humphrey Kiwanis advisor If you read this, mention it at the next Key Club meeting to claim your prize!
Sam O’Malie When no one is raising their hand to volunteer something, that’s when you can count on Sam to nod and say “I’m pretty sure I can do that, when would you like me to come?” Sam was a big help with making and selling cotton candy at the Friday night football games throughout the fall, and he continues to be a great volunteer, helping with bellringing and much more. Thanks, Sam!
