I attend Scripps Ranch High and was ecstatic when I found out that I was chosen to be able to serve all of you. I wish to serve the division to the best of my ability, and I hope that I will be able to meet all of you and see you serve our great community.
A WORD FROM OUR LTG Hey Key Clubbers! This past month has been a time of transition and change for many of you. As the Seniors have graduated, some may say that the role models of our clubs have left, however, keep in mind that this gives us younger members a chance to BEE the new role models! During this past month, Division 21 has held its first all-member Officer Training Conference, with over fifty attendees! The day was spent educating members about technology, ethics, Key Club, and Key Club positions! The day was wrapped up with an exciting DCM workshop where we learned (and played) icebreakers. Overall, I was extremely happy with how OTC turned out! Thank you to everyone who came, and to those of you who couldnâ€™t make it, please donâ€™t hesitate to look at the workshops that have been posted online. Lastly, keep in mind that while Summer is a break from school, service never has to end! Keep on racking up those hours and remember to BEE active in your clubs. Invite some friends, drink lots of water, and have fun! Thank you for your GOLDEN service. 3
WE: CONNECT JACOBS CENTER KATHY DOAN
WE Connect strives to "help working families get connected to money saving programs and other important resources that will help them save money, be more financially secure, and lead healthier lives." On Saturday, July 13th, Patrick Henry Key Club did exactly that: helping families in the community gain stability! Along with our club were members from both Madison and Serra High School's Key Club. We were all very happy to lend a hand. Patrick Henry Key Clubbers were assigned the 'Kid Zone'. In this section, we helped with checking in and out the kids with parents and occupying them with arts and crafts, while parents were walking around the fair. First, we had to set up the area and fill each table with activities and supplies for the kids. While these activities were meant for the children, volunteers had fun as well! We needed to create examples for the kids to see, so we colored, glued, folded, etc. to our hearts content until they came. As participants trickled into the Kid Zone, things got more hectic. Running around replenishing supplies and providing every child with activities and attention was hard work, but overall very rewarding. We had reading tests, trivia, drawing contests, and word search competitions. All very fun! Although tiresome, a day at the Jacobs Center was one well spent with the other Key Clubbers and the community!

OTC NINA NGUYEN
One of the recent events that Point Loma Key Club's members have attended is OTC, Officer Training Conference. We got to meet new people and learn more information through the workshops there. After OTC, the July DCM introduced us to new icebreakers, especially Fat Penguin. t was a fun experience and helped give us new deas for icebreakers to do during our club meetings. The event we attended was definitely worth going to!
UPCOMING EVENTS RTC
An event where Key Clubbers from Region 1 and 2 get together to learn how to become better members and officers for the future. Workshops are presented, ranging from learning to use Photoshop to learning how to keep their schoolâ€™s Key Club running. In between the workshops, Key Clubbers get together to show off their spirit through their mascots and cheers. These spirit battles will determine which division deserves the spirit trophy at the end. A dance follows after all these tiring workshops to release the stress. We hope to see you there this year!
TECH EDITORâ€™S CORNER
Hello, wonderful Key Clubbers, Hope you are having a wonderful summer! This month has been slow, but thanks to OTC, itâ€™s made me remember that Key Club is still ongoing. This month is the month of Comic-Con, a convention full of superheroes. Any Key Clubbers going are sure to witness many amazing things! Speaking of superheroes, hope you all are preparing capes and masks for our theme for RTC! Superpowers of service, here we come! Stay Frosty, Estella Hoang
