Meet your LTG: Dorothy Wang

Dear Key Clubbers,

I am BEYOND excited to be working with you guys this year and serving as your Lieutenant Governor! We have a lot of room to grow this year as a division but I know we can do it! In order to help strengthen our division and up the spirit, I’ll need all of your help and support as officers and club members. After all, Key Club would be nothing without all of its members, you guys are the most important! My main focus during my term will be to improve communication within clubs and the District level, to get more participation and involvement in divisional and district events, and to increase the amount of spirit and passion for Key Club within our members and clubs. Also, I would like to expand our division by adding more clubs after strengthening our current clubs. I hope everyone in Division 64 will have the opportunity to experience how amazing Key Club is by forming lasting friendships and unforgettable memories throughout this upcoming year. Key Club is truly an incredible organization that has impacted millions of lives.

We have a lot of work to do this year to help strengthen the Division, but with your help, we can achieve those goals! Always feel free to call me beep me if ya wanna reach me (or find me on Facebook!)! No matter if you’re a club member or an officer, I’ll always be here if you need anything Key Club related or even if you just want to talk and hang out! I’m looking forward to meeting all of you! This is going to be an amazing year for our Division 64 and we are going to do amazing things, so get pumped!  In Love and Service, Dorothy Wang 503-545-6886 dorothywang.ltg64@gmail.com More about me: School: Lakeridge High School Grade: Junior If you have any questions about who I am and what I do as LTG, please feel free to contact me!

Greetings from your LTG Hey Key Clubbers! Wow, I can’t believe it’s been a month since I was inducted into my position as Lieutenant Governor – time flies by too quickly! If we haven’t met yet, please feel free to introduce yourself! I would love to get to know all of you. First off, I would like to point out that as Key Clubbers, we have the privilege and opportunity to interact with Kiwanians! Without Kiwanis, Key Club would not be where it is today, and Kiwanians are some of the sweetest and most caring people you will ever meet, I promise! So officers, I highly encourage that you connect with your local Kiwanis Clubs and attend their meetings. I have included more information about each of the Kiwanis Clubs on page 18. I can also assure you that communication with your Kiwanis Club will help you greatly in building your club, and they are always willing to help out Key Clubbers!  I would also like to thank the 12 members that came out to my DCM th on April 27 – it meant so much to me! I promise that the next DCMs will go more smoothly, and I want to emphasize discussion time during my DCMs between members because I believe it will be greatly beneficial to everyone. Please remember to promote the District Project (ELIMINATE)! Ideally, each club will be doing a service project regularly to help fundraise. Please contact me if you need fundraising ideas or if you have fundraised ELIMINATE money so that I can help you send it to the District! I will be visiting all of the clubs soon, hopefully. Officers, please send me your advisor contact information and your own contact information if possible! I would like all officers to fill out the Google form (linked on the previous page) by May 18th!  “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” – Mahatma Ghandi Dorothy Wang LTG Division 64 dorothywang.ltg64@gmail.com 503-545-6886

Dear Key Clubbers, What makes Key Club unique? Key Club is the largest high school service organization in the world, but what makes it so special and what enables it to continue to grow? It can’t be the ability to volunteer because no matter where you go, you can find a way to give back to your community. You can even volunteer globally through UNICEF, Rustic Pathways, and other worldwide organizations. What makes Key Club is different from every other organization out there is the tight-knit community that it creates between people who live on opposite sides of a city, a state, a nation, or the world. To fully seize the opportunities that Key Club provides high school students, it’s important for everyone to be involved with their divisions, their district, and international. You can get involved with Key Club International by attending Key Club events, joining social media sites that are created to link together Key Clubbers from all over the world, and talking to your district leaders! In terms of the division, your Lieutenant Governor should be having Divisional Council Meetings every so often in order to bring the entire division together. Your division is composed of the schools around you that have Key Clubs. At these meetings, take advantage of the close distance between you and the other Key Clubbers in attendance. Arrange meet-ups, socials, and joint volunteer projects to increase your impact on your community and meet people who you otherwise would have not had the chance to meet!

In terms of your district, the Pacific Northwest District is composed of all of the Key Clubs in Alaska, Washington, and Oregon, as well as some of the clubs in western Idaho, northern California, and Canada. There are rallies in the summer for all Key Clubbers in a specific region to attend and meet new people. At these rallies, you’re bound to have an amazing time while also learning about Key Club International through educational forums. Each year, PNW also hosts District Convention: an exciting weekend in

which Key Clubbers from all over the district unite to celebrate the end of a wonderful year of service and prepare for the next one. If you have the chance to attend District Convention, I highly recommend it! Yours in service, Roshni Chandwani

International Trustee Roshni.chandwani.kc@gmail.com

More About the Pacific Northwest District “In the midst of serene nature and fluctuating weather conditions lies the great Pacific Northwest District (PNW). The Pacific Northwest is geographically the largest district of Key Club International. The district spans from Western Canada to Northern California: with Alaska, Washington, Oregon, and the pan-handle of Idaho in between.” “The Pacific Northwest encompasses nearly 1.8 million square miles and includes over 330 clubs that operate under 44 divisions. Through rain or shine, snow or hail, Key Clubbers in the Pacific Northwest dedicate countless hours to their communities and internationally, and are always Proud 'N‘ Willing to serve!” “The mascot of the Pacific Northwest District is the “Mighty Moose,” also commonly called “Mortimer the Moose.” Known for our spirit yet incredible dedication to the service that we do, the PNW District continues to be a leader in the Key Club world, and it is all thanks to our members and excellent leadership throughout the district. It would not be far from the truth to say that yes, we’re one of the best, with over 11,300 members proudly shouting out in accord when they hear: “Hey PNW! How do you feel?”” Division 64 includes Tigard High School, Wilsonville High School, Tualatin High School, Lakeridge High School, Sherwood High School, West Linn High School, and Lake Oswego High School. We are one of the smallest and newest divisions in the District, but we are working towards becoming a bigger and stronger division over the next year! Our divisional mascot is the “Classy Mouse,” which is tentative to change- we will put this up to a vote at our next DCM!  Our divisional colors are currently teal, white, and black. We are happy to serve and blessed to be able to experience how rewarding being an active member of Key Club can be. Yay Key Club!!

: May DCM MAY DIVISIONAL COUNCIL MEETING!!! 17th

Date: May Location: Lakeridge High School Time: 1:30-3pm

IMPORTANT:

Each club is responsible for bringing snacks! It will be a mini-potluck. I will provide utensils, cups, plates, napkins, etc. and drinks. 

Agenda: 1) Icebreakers 2) Portland Rally 3) Mascot change 4) Miracle minute 5) Club Discussion 6) Divisional Goals 7) Other questions

All incoming officers are required to attend this DCM! Each club must send at least TWO other club representatives (members) to participate at the DCM, but it would be awesome to have as many members there as possible. Officers, please let me know if you are unable to attend and I will try to change the date to accommodate as many of you as possible! • Having good attendance from clubs at the DCM is key to our success this year as a division, because besides my newsletters and occasional club visitations, our DCMs are our primary method of communication throughout the division. Please plan on being there!  Also, the more people you send to your DCM, the more points your club gets!  • UNLIKE last DCM, there will be more talking from you guys instead of from me!! I want to hear how your clubs are doing, and we can share ideas on how to improve our clubs. I know many clubs are wrapping up as the school year ends, but please remember to stay connected and to continue volunteering and doing service projects throughout the summer!  We have Portland Rally coming up the week after school ends which will be AWESOME!! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------• Please bring your spare change to our DCM! We will be hosting a Miracle Minute to raise money for ELIMINATE, the Pacific Northwest District’s District Project, which focuses on eliminating maternal and neonatal tetanus globally. • Our current mascot is the Classy Mouse, so during this DCM we will vote on whether or not we want to change our mascot, and if so, what we should change our mascot to! Feel free to brainstorm and suggest ideas for potential mascots leading up to the DCM. • We will be celebrating our seniors!! Please plan on attending and RSVP! Contact me for information. There will also be a Facebook event so you can RSVP through that as well. 

Slavery was abolished in 1865. But it still exists, not only in thirdworld countries, but within America too.

There are an estimated 5.5 million children in the trafficking industry.

To learn that over 900,000 fellow Americans and countless others worldwide are lured or recruited into human trafficking is appalling. People that we know, our next door neighbor, our friend from high school, and those whose names go unheard, who will most likely celebrate only two more birthdays while in the sex trade, before their tragic and untimely death…As shocking as much of this is, it is reassuring to know that there is an organization out there, in Redlight Traffic, who is standing up for those innocent individuals, and we as Kiwanis Family Members must rally behind our motto of serving the children of the world.” - Raeford Penny, 2013-2014 International President of Key Club International

Check out redlighttraffic.org for more information on how you can help! “Human trafficking is one of the fastest growing crimes in the world. Human trafficking is the world’s second largest criminal enterprise, after drugs.” –US Department of State

Service Project of the Month: Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp Auction “About 500 people attended the 2 events and we raised about $238,000. It was a lot of hard work but also a lot of fun.” - Kathy Werschkul, President Elect of Tualatin Kiwanis Club.  “The Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp hosted an auction to help raise money to send disabled children to its amazing summer camp. The camp has a 1:1 ratio of counselors to camper. Through the belief that every child should experience the joy of summer camps, the camp offers a variety of exciting activities, such as zip-lining, swimming, and other fun activities. The camp organized a Gatsby themed auction to help raise money for this cause. It was a lot of fun to volunteer!” –Joshua Lee, Co-President of Lakeridge High School Key Club 


Food Drive Challenge! •

• • •

I would like to challenge all 7 clubs in our school to a COMPETITION to see how many cans of food we can raise for the food bank! The total number of cans raised by each club will be divided by the member count. The club with the most cans per member will win a trophy and other rewards ;) so stay tuned! More information will be released shortly, so check our division website (pnwdivision64.webs.com), Facebook group page (PNW Key Club Division 64), or send me your email so I can update you with more information! You may start fundraising and collecting cans, I will release more information soon about when the collection period is over!  Be creative in the ways you fundraise! There are so many ways you can do this.  More information will be released at the DCM on the 17th… so COME!!!

THE ELIMINATE PROJECT - The primary goal of the ELIMINATE project is to “eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. This deadly disease steals the lives of nearly 60,000 innocent babies and a significant number of women each year. The effects of the disease are excruciating — tiny newborns suffer repeated, painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch.” - It takes $1.80 to get three rounds of vaccinations for mother and child - In order to essentially eradicate the prevalence of neonatal and maternal tetanus globally, we must still raise $110 million for our cause. - As of February, the Pacific Northwest District raised a total of $80778.40 for the ELIMINATE project, which means our district saved 89,754 lives as of February. - An easy way to raise money for the ELIMINATE project is through Miracle Minutes! During Miracle Minutes, everyone donates as much spare change as they can during the span of a minute. Even a couple pennies can go a long way! - Please promote the ELIMINATE project throughout your communities!

- For more fundraising ideas, please contact your

LTG. We will also discuss ELIMINATE in more detail at the May DCM. - Visit the ELIMINATE website for more information regarding what ELIMINATE does and Key Club’s role with that project.

I am inspired by the love and passion each one of you has for the act of service. and remember that ever single minute you spend serving the community is changing the world around you in a positive way.
