Garfield HS KEY CLUB Volume 5 Issue 3 April 10th, 2013

Meetings every Wednesday in Mr. Heye’s, room 309

The Official Newsletter of Garfield High School Key Club, Division 26

DCMs SO…WHAT ARE THEY? The first Division 26 DCM of the Key Club year is coming up on April 20th, but you may be wondering, what exactly is a DCM? A DCM is a division council meeting, where Key Clubbers from Division 26 schools, and occasionally special guests, gather to discuss issues, share ideas, and meet new friends. In the past, D26 has incorporated many fun activities into the DCMs, so it’s not just a meeting where people gather and talk about boring issues. Our division has done everything from ice skating to scavenger hunts and carwashes.

Ready, set, go! Participants stuff their faces during a watermelon eating contest at the May DCM.

This Week in Photos……2 DCM……………………...3 Calendar / Announcements ………4 Key Clubbers after a day of ice skating at the December DCM.

Dear Key Clubbers, Spring break is only a few days away, so hang in there! We have some great events happening over break, including SCA Earth Day and the April DCM. I cannot make it to them since I will be out of town, but I look forward to seeing the pictures you guys take at these events. A big thank you to those who signed on for the fundraising committee interviews. It’s great to see Key Club members who are dedicated and ready to serve! Also, please remember to stay updated, because there are exciting events that will be happening in the future. If you’re viewing this bulletin on Issuu, the links are clickable and will forward you to various event pages, Key Club groups, or board member emails. -Reanne Wong
