Division Assistant Aloha Division 22 KomOHANA Honus! Half of the first quarter of the school year is already over! To some of you, that’s great. To others, it might mean that time is flying by way too quickly. Don’t fret! Either way, there’s going to be things on the way that will make it worthwhile to experience! (: With school already in session, we’re all tasked with homework, studying for quizzes and tests, projects… Hopefully, in the midst of these things, we haven’t forgotten Key Club. Just remember, family is important, even one’s health and education as well. In the coming months, there’s going to be events that fellow Key Clubbers would want to participate in! Alongside with that, help out in service projects or fundraisers, keep up with the division by reading through the HoNews and attending Division Council Meetings, and interact with your Kiwanis family!

Wishing everyone a great day, you are all GOLDEN.

Buzzing to Serve, Bennet Cariaga Divisional Assistant Division 22 KomOHANA | Region 18 Cali-Nev-Ha District Key Club International

Aiea High School First General Meeting Jay Corpuz | Club Historian

Our first board meeting was a rap! We haven’t seen so many unfamiliar faces before. Friends and new people, such as the freshmen, displayed curiosity about the club and showed interest in being a member. All officers were so prepared and so prompt to meet this year’s new set of members. We made each every person feel very welcome by showing our best effort, giving positive attitude, smile on our faces, making it fun as possible, and a goal to fill the room with enthusiasm. After the meeting, we distributed chocolates, sweets to our fantastic members to convey them that our club is a very fun, caring, and awesome environment to be in. All the officers and advisors were amazed of how many attendees who showed up for our very first club meeting. We have over 70 members who attended and more later. The room wasn’t enough for everyone. Some people had to stand at the back and by the doors. But despite of the inconvenience, they eagerly paid attention. It is astonishing because Key Club at our school is now well known. We hope this year runs smoothly. And this year’s officers will continue to work hard to further and demonstrate a good environment for our members. We want to be a great example and role models who can encourage other individuals like you to join us in making a difference!

Castle High School Building Our Ohana Caitlin Yoshimori | Club Vice President As we take the leap into the new year, we rebuild our Key Club Ohana. With memories already made, and new ones to be made, we begin our journey. Thrown into a brand new environment, new people may feel scared and maybe lonely. That should not be!! They are in search of a family and who will be there to welcome them? The Key Club Ohana!! For the past few years, Castle High School’s Key Club membership numbers have dwindled. The club had, at most, 4 attendants to projects that were made. But, with great promotion and fantastic energy, we were able to see many, many new faces at our first Key Club Meeting! In our meetings we said our pledges, held fun ice breakers, and discussed membership and upcoming projects. Everybody who attended had a bright positive attitude! We all are so enthusiastic and excited about beginning our journey together as a family! Together we will serve and change the world one project at a time!

McKinley High School Club Day at McKinley Anna Nguyen | Club President On August 22, 2013, McKinley High School hosted a day afterschool where students come to the cafeteria to sign up for clubs the school has to offer. One is being Key Club. The purpose of “Club Day” is to inform students about the available clubs and class committee opportunities for the school year. A week before Club Day, Key Club officers posted flyers all around school. The officers thought it would be a great way to recruit more members. Club Day took approximately one hour. The cafeteria was filled with eager students wanting to participate in many clubs. With a cafeteria filled with so many students, it got so hot, all the officers felt like they were going to have a heat stroke! Luckily, one of our former Key Club officers came by with refreshments for us and our advisors. With school spirit, comes with Club Day Competition. Our school awards any club points for participating in the events they host. At the end of the year, three clubs with the most points will be placed in the top three for “Club of the Year”. Of course, McKinley Key Club strives for this opportunity! Each club’s booth had to have a banner and decorations that’s appealing to the eye. For three days, Key Club officers came in afterschool to help make decorations for their booth. The banner they’ve designed incorporated the color of Kiwanis – blue and yellow! They also made cut-out keys out of cardboard, and painted the keys yellow. For decorations, the officers displayed blue and yellow balloons, the bell and gavel, an official Key Club banner, a cut-out cardboard key, and pictures of previous volunteering work that Key Clubbers have participated in. All the officers were so overwhelmed by how much people signed up for the club. We didn’t expect this much people. Because of that, we didn’t have enough sign-up sheets, so we made one on a sheet of folder paper! Overall, we had a big and great turn out. Over 80 students signed up for Key Club. We only hope that they will be willing to participate, as we encourage and remind them about how great Key Club really is.

Waipahu High School Tide Pool Social Maribeth Ganiron | Club Editor This is a totally different social than what we usually do. This was all the way across the island, across from Sea Life Park. We expected more people to come, but unfortunately not everyone showed up. So Waipahu had a small social with Ace Cabato from Pearl City high school Key Club. That day was fun and very memorable. Oh, and we met some sea friends too :) Once we got there, we met up with Mr. Smith. He gave everyone packets that we can use to identify the creatures we may find in the tide pools. He also gave us plastic bags if we wanted to bring home things like empty shells. After that, we headed down to the tide pools. The rocks were very slippery, and we had to be careful just incase we got hurt. It was pretty interesting to see the kinds of creatures that live in the tide pools there. We found things like hermit crabs, ear seaweed, and even a sea slug. We collected everything we found and put them in one tide pool. One funny thing that happened was when we picked up the sea slug it squirted out water. We also found a beautiful shell that looks like what people would use for leis. I believe that it was called a “leho kupa” or (snakehead cowry). Mr. Smith was nice enough to provide us with water and snacks, so we would like to thank him again for doing that for us. After we ate and cleaned up, we headed to a ranch just a mile up from the tide pools. It was actually nicer than I thought. The first animal we saw was a peacock in the front of the ranch. We also saw a dog named, “Fudges”. We got to meet the owner of the ranch, and he was nice enough to offer us drinks. After that, we went to go look at the chickens. There was this huge chicken that caught our eye. It was bigger than what you would think a regular sized chicken would be. We also saw a chicken that apparently survived from an accident before. It had a broken leg and would limp, but still went on with his happy chicken life. Oh, and there was a rooster that we saw that had really funky looking hair. That was the one that stood out the most to me. Overall, this day was full of bonding, memories, and was actually educating. It was fun to learn about new organisms there that we didn’t even know about, and make new friends. :)
