Jiayun Fang

For those who came to the divisional meeting, I hope you had a great time getting to know everyone! For those who couldn’t make it, I hope you can come to the next divisional event. Speaking of which, our current divisional event is CSH ribbon sales! Each club who attended the Aug 14th meeting received ribbons to take back to school and sell. You can sell them for $1 or with a cupcake or whatever

other way you prefer (see Pg 5)! Please send all money to me by mail or have your president bring them to me at the mid-September PCM. Feel free to make more ribbons and have fun selling! Another to keep in mind as the summer homework dawns on us: CMRFs are due 10th of each month! Secretaries, please be reminded that these are part of your service agreement. I completely understand that the start of school will overwhelm a lot of people, so please try to plan ahead and submit CMRFs ahead of time! That’s it for now and I hope you had fun this summer! Please feel free to contact me at anytime.

Public Relations By Editor Nicole Darrah & LTG Brian Cheung

The Public Relations Committee was formerly known as the District Relations Committee… until it was changed back in the 2009-2010 service year. The general idea of this committee is simple: Publicize + Build + Inform = Public Relations. Throughout the service year, this committee is assigned to create PowerPoints and videos, contact

the local media, write articles, create brochures, and to overall publicize Key Club and its work in any way possible. We cannot do what we do without YOU, the members of this organization! It takes work on our part, but it’s a very simple thing for you to do. Why do you love Key Club? What makes Key Club so great? What does Key Club give to you? Instead of answering these questions in your head, answer them by telling your

friends! By letting your friends know all about the wonderful thing that is Key Club, you are doing exactly what this committee entails: publicizing! If you have any questions or comments about the Public Relations Committee, contact cochairs Nicole Darrah ( or Brian Cheung (!

Checklist for Divisional Projects  Sell ribbons for $1. Tryout out different ideas! Sell them with a cupcake, brownie, etc.

 Make more ribbons! All clubs (including those who didn’t attend the divisional meeting) should have sold some by the September PCM. Ribbon formula: safety pins + cut ribbons = CSH ribbons!

 Contact local or chain restaurants to find out about their policies for Restaurant Nights or Dine to Donate

 Ask for available dates from Oct 30th to Nov 7th, then let me know by October 1st!

 Find 1 or 2 acts for Generosity Rocks concert. Each act must have at least one high school performer. The act can be anything related to music from singing to playing in a band. Division 14
