Table of Contents Editor’s Note President’s Message
Editor’s Note Hey everyone, this will be my final newsletter (insert sad face). Mrs. Macgregor is still looking for people to be next year’s editor and webmaster, so the due date for application forms has been extended until after school on Monday 2/24 for those two positions only. Spencer and I need successors! There’s a lot to talk about in terms of past and future events, so read on for more information. Enjoy! Your Editor, Samuel Wu
President’s Message Our service year is slowly coming to a close, and I couldn’t be more satisfied with all we accomplished together! Together, we successfully served our community by fundraising for a local boy with leukemia, helping the PAL Red Hawks at their Game Day, hosting an exciting Coffeehouse, raising hundreds of dollars for Eliminate, and many more. However, we still have Class Projects and Canning to serve the Krinner family on our endeavor with the Builders Club to help them rebuild their home after a tragic fire. I want to personally thank you all because my four years in Key Club would not have been as enjoyable without your dedication and enthusiasm. I’ll end the sappiness here since the service year isn’t over until DCON, but I will be back with more corniness afterwards. I wish all of you who are running for a position good luck and I can’t wait to see you guys (or whoever is going) at DCON! Yours truly, Jasmine Jean 2013-2014 Key Club President
On Thursday 2/20, Key Club members headed over to the local senior center, Baldwin Oaks, to entertain the elderly. There were tons of performances including dances, poetry readings, songs, clarinet, and acts. We served them the snacks and drinks that you guys brought in, so thank you to everyone who donated!
Montville Volleyball Marathon
On Friday 2/21, Montvilleâ€™s annual volleyball marathon was held. This event is the largest event in our division and is always a success. This year, there were 85 teams that participated and a record of over $9,000 was raised for the Eliminate Project! Thank you to everyone who played and spectated for their contribution to such a great cause.
DCON District Convention is almost here! Get excited for the meetings, workshops, and the late night dances! On March 4th, there will be a MANDATORY meeting for anyone going. Here’s a packing list for things you might want to bring:
Formal business attire
ICON In addition to District Convention, there is also an annual International Convention. This year, it will take place from July 2-6 in Anaheim ,California. This is a chance to meet Key Clubbers from all around the world and to get even more involved! The early bird price ($175) goes until May 16th, so if you are interested thereâ€™s still plenty of time to sign up!
Class Projects Congratulations to Christina Xu, Anne Cheng, and Henry Shen for being chosen to be this yearâ€™s Class Project Directors! All funds raised from these projects will go toward the Krinner family.
