Yo, Hippos! As most of you are, I too, am upset that summer is ending soon. As the school year is approaching, many of us must prepare it, especially those who are Seniors. You might be wondering why I’ve skipped the August issue - it’s because we just found out that we are an issue behind! Woops! Anyways, I hope you guys have a great rest of the summer while you still can. Stay frosty, Estella Hoang

A WORD FROM OUR LTG Hello Hippos! I hope you have all had a wonderful summer vacation up until now. While most of us still have some vacation left, be sure you are beginning to prepare yourselves for the upcoming year! If you are a senior like me, make sure you also get started on those scholarships and college applications! Remember that while summer is a great time to party and have fun, you should keep a serious attitude about your oh-so important education. In terms of Key Club, this summer has been a great success! In just the months of June and July (August not included!), we as a division have served over 500 hours of service - not to mention the multiple fundraisers that have raised hundreds of dollars for PTP! I’m extremely proud of you all for taking time out of your busy social lives to support both your local and distant “neighbors”. Thank YOU for all you do! Remember to get back into the habit of sleeping early so you’re well-rested when school comes around, and enjoy the BEEautiful weather while it’s still here! See you in school! Nicklas Lee Division 21 Lieutenant Governor 3

CLUB BUILDING By Tyler Ly

It has hurt me to see my club’s membership count dwindle over the past couple of years. It always starts out with large meetings but begins to thin throughout the year. No doubt, membership growth and membership retention are some of the hardest things to accomplish as leaders of Key Club. It’s a true test of our determination, creativity, and enthusiasm. Hopefully, some of these tips will help you achieve this feat.

START WITH A LARGE MEMBERSHIP You can NEVER over-advertise Key Club and your meetings. A good place to advertise is at your school’s orientation or “Kick-off.” Although you have to get permission from administration, this is a good way to get most, if not all, of the student body to see your CLUB. Another way you can advertise is to make a new friend on the first day of school. See someone you don’t recognize in class? Sit next to them and introduce yourself. Not only have you made his or her day instantly better by meeting you, but you’ve opened up a pathway to making his or her life better by introducing them to Key Club.

KEEP THINGS CONSISTENT Having a repetitive schedule each meeting gets boring, but that's not what I’m talking about. You should keep meeting days and meeting location the same. > Meeting days and meeting locations should remain the same. Changing these details will cause students to miss meeting, and, therefore, not be informed of volunteer events if they have no other means of gaining that knowledge. A strategy used by one club is to have the officers dress up to remind members that it’s meeting

EDUCATE YOUR MEMBERS AND OFFICERS There are always going to be people who ask “What is Key Club?” Officers and MEMBERS should be able to answer with more than just, “It’s a service club.” There are plenty of service clubs and when asked what Key Club is, officers should be able to leave a lasting impression on students and parents, as they will be4 exposed to the strong foundation and professionalism that exists within Key Club.

RTC: SUPERPOWERS OF SER

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 school’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. The theme this year is Superpowers of Service! We encourage you to dress up for the event! A dance follows after all these tiring workshops to release the stress. We hope to see you there this year!
