Bringing Service to Life What’s Happening in the Lair?

At night, they come without being fetched. By day, they are lost without being stolen. What are they?
A week ago, our Key Club sponsored a Game Night open to all of the clubs at Nacogdoches High School. It was a tremendous success! We had tons of food, and I think it is safe to say that we all had a great time. We had a Twister tournament, Just Dance tournament, “Birdy on a Perch” tournament, and many board games available for members for play. Everyone who attended paid an entrance fee of $3. All of the money we raised at this event will go to the March of Dimes and the fight for babies. Due to the success of this event, I’m sure we will have on next year as well!
RELAY FOR LIFE This time of year is always a busy time for everyone, especially Key Club. In the same weekend, we had members at Relay for Life until around midnight and then members at March of Dimes the next day! We also
had some extra dedicated members who attended both! Relay for Life was on Friday, April 26th at 7Pm at the Nacogdoches Expo Center. Many of our members have special ties to Relay for Life so Nacogdoches Key Club wanted to ensure we donated to the event and the fight against cancer. In the days leading up to the event, we sold “Hope Floats” and ice cream sundaes after school to the student body and teachers of Nacogdoches High School. It was such a huge success that we ran out of ice cream after only selling them for less than 20 minutes on Tuesday the 23rd . We made sure we stocked up on ice cream for Wednesday’s sales though! All of the money raised through the selling of Hope Floats will be donated to Relay for Life!
MARCH OF DIMES March of Dimes is one of our all-time favorite events; we did not even mind waking up early on a Saturday for this

one! The walk was at Pecan Park on E. Starr right next to the intramural fields at SFA. This year was especially special because the March of Dimes organization is celebrating 75 years! We had a great turn out! For two weeks, Nacogdoches Key Club has been doing some serious fundraising! During lunches, we sold March of Dimes cutouts and wristbands for a dollar. We offered the students free tardy passes in exchange for their donation, which was a huge success! Also, we offered “Jeans for Teachers” to the teachers at Nacogdoches High School in exchange for a donation of which will benefit March of Dimes. The accumulation of all the funds raised for March of Dimes from our various events totaled well over $1000!
BANQUET As our Key Club school year comes to an end, it is time for our annual Key Club banquet and installation of our new officers! We are so very proud of all we have accomplished the past year and cannot wait to see what the 2013-2014 school year has in store for the Nacogdoches Key Club. At the banquet, we would like to take the opportunity to recognize some of our outstanding individual members who have made it their mission to serve their home, school, and community. Even though all of our members are very dedicated, there are a few that
stood out. The Outstanding Freshman Key Club member was Jacob Johnson, the Outstanding Sophomore Key Club member was Drake Adkins, the Outstanding Junior Key Club member was Maggie King, and the Outstanding Senior Key Club member was Tristan Emborgo. In addition to our outstanding members, we honored the seniors who achieved in attaining over 80 hours during the 2012-2013 school year. The senior who received their cords were Paul Theiss, Cori Redfield, and Tristan Emborgo. I would like to take this opportunity to especially recognize our fabulous club sponsor, Nancy White, who dedicates a tremendous amount of time and effort to our club. We wouldn’t be able to do everything we do without her! Thanks for an awesome Key Club year and I cannot wait until next year!
BE BOLD I hope all of you have a fantastic week and, as always, BE BOLD.
