Gift Wrapping Thank you to the volunteers who came out to wrap gifts at Northgate Mall on Saturday to raise money for the YMCA. If you missed this opportunity, there is another event on the 21st. There is no experience necessary and you can get some practice wrapping gifts for the holiday season!

MESSAGE FROM THE EDITOR Dear Key Clubbers, Welcome back to school! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving/ Hanukkah and enjoyed spending time with your friends and family, The holiday season is starting, which means many wonderful charitable organizations need our help! Sign up for new volunteer events by coming to the meetings, because the online signup sheet is now inactive until we can get higher attendance at the lunch meetings. An annual favorite, the ice skating DCM, will be occurring on the 14th of December! I know Renton is a little far for some of you, but it’s worth it and contributes to a good cause. Please don’t feel shy about attending—it’s a great opportunity to meet new friends and you can invite a friend to come, even if they’re not in Key Club. Also, a HUGE shoutout to everyone who has been buying and selling peppermint bark and doughnuts to support our club, and Alina for letting the officer team use her kitchen! And thank you, Lynda, and everyone else who sends in photos from events! -Reanne Wong
