Hello Everyone! I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Grace Ison and I am the new Governor of the Pennsylvania District of Key Club International. I am currently a Sophomore at Riverview High School in Oakmont, Pennsylvania. I have been a part of the District Board for almost two years now. I was appointed to be the Division 6 Lieutenant Governor in January of my freshman year and continued my sophomore year as well. I love being a part of Key Club and staying active in my home club. I volunteer at the National Aviary in Pittsburgh where I help aviculturists and trainers prepare birdâ€™s meals, do shows and answer questions. I also volunteer at a local nursing home where I bring my dog Ginger who loves to visit with the residents! Outside of Key Club I am an honors and AP student. I love spending time with my friends and family. I am also a member of my schoolâ€™s Model United Nations team. I am involved in Spanish Club, Students Against Destructive Decisions, History Club and Orchestra. When I have free time I love to destress with Yoga and playing with my puppy. I am excited to be in the position of Governor this year and look forward to working with each of you in the coming year! Please feel free to reach out to me at any time. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and my phone number is (412) 923- 8896.

School's out and the weather is nice, what better time to help your communities by doing service! There are plenty of different projects you can do in the summer in order to stay active. Encourage your club to get involved over the summer because our service never ends! Some projects you could host include:
Remember, another good way to stay involved is with our Youth Serving Youth project, Early Childhood Education. Donating books, reading to younger age children, and teaching youth basic reading skills are projects that you can do very easily. The funds collected can be donated to the Pennsylvania Kiwanis Foundation to help make their educational booklets for new parents. Don't be afraid to share any ideas you may have for a Summer service project. Be bold and get creative! Summer projects can be some of the most unique and exciting, so have fun with it!
K is a very important letter in the alphabet for any Key Clubber, that is a sure guarantee.
However, this magical letter K is so much more than just a letter, itâ€™s a family! This inclusive, loving, and hard-working family works wonders internationally, dedicating countless hours of service to many worthwhile initiatives worldwide. Everyone is familiar with our favorite branch of the KFamily, Key Club, but there are several other critical members of our family that work in conjunction with Key Club and help to support all of our clubs. Other members of the K-Family include the following: KIWANIS KIDS- for elementary students BUILDERS CLUB- for junior high CIRCLE K- for college students AKTION CLUB- for adults with disabilities KIWANIS- for service-driven adults
Key Club alone performs over 12 million hours of service every single year, so just imagine the positive impact that all of these groups together can have! Your K-Family journey is only just getting started with Key Club, as you will have ample opportunities to continue your lifelong commitment to service through Circle K and/or Kiwanis. Joining a local Kiwanis club and being an active member allows you to try and give back to Kiwanis all that it has given you. Without Kiwanis, there would be no Key Club as our Key Clubs are dependent upon their sponsoring Kiwanis Clubsâ€™ support and resources. When members of the K-Family unite, there is little we cannot accomplish.
