Throughout the year, the club offers a lot of community service opportunities. Through these events, I met many different people from each event and interacted with them. As a result, I learn a lot of things and see it in a different point of view, it expands my vision and thinking of the world I live in. When volunteering, not only did I meet new people, but I also improved my communication skills as I interacted with them about many different topics. Joining Key Club, I developed some soft skills such as leadership, teamwork, problem-solving, flexibility, positivity and selfconfidence. Besides those skills, I also develop character building, caring, and inclusiveness as I volunteer more.

When volunteering, we not only help others, but we also enjoy the happiness of volunteering. We do a variety of community service from cleaning your local parks to cheering people at marathons. Through these events, you’ll see things in a different point of view and value them as memories you’ll never forget as people taking out their time to volunteer. Joining the organization, it’ll change your thoughts and view of the world around you. All in all, Key Club is an organization that others want to join because as we’re like a family, we care and look out for each other. We do a variety of volunteer work, and through volunteering, you’ll experience a lot of fun. Lastly, the club will surprise you with unexpected things, and you’ll learn from them as experience.

Summertime Madness Writtrn by Karen Vong

Summer is the time when everyone has fun days, late nights and spends time with the people they love. As a club, it means it's much harder to do many things due to the circumstances of summer. The officers of North Garland Key Club had decided to have meetings every month in order to find solutions to these problems. In order for the club to work, the first thing is to get the officers together to have a plan. Once our officers got together it was only a matter of minutes and multiple debates on what should be done. After settling down a bit, we had a set plan to make sure that we would hold a car wash in order to not only help out our community, but also have an event set up for the members of Key Club - side note: it was also a great way to earn money through donations and a fantastic time to bond with one another. During this planning


we (the officers) decided to hold a car wash every -

month in the summer. With the help of our amazing members who decided to come out we had a great amount of help and an awesome turnout. The officers not only had one event planned, but another called “Trusted World� where we needed an officer to be in charge of the event. Again, it is summer and officers have families and a life too, shocking right? So that was another problem, we needed to find an officer who was able to show up and make sure things were running smoothly at the event. As a team working together, the officers found ways in order for our members to still have this event. Even though we found ways to accommodate to our problems, it is impossible to have a physical meeting every week in order to figure everything out. In order for us to really get things done we had online meetings to make sure that everyone knew what was going on, make improvements, and also find events! Yes, even though it is summer there are things that need to be done, right this second at least one of the officers are working on something that will allow our members to participate and earn hours. Summer is a time whenthe days are longer, which means there are more opportunities to help our community with our friends, and our officers are here to help if there is any needed!
