MESSAGE FROM THE EDITOR Dear Key Clubbers, It is a few weeks into summer, so it may seem like there isn’t a lot going on in Key Club. However, we still have tons of events and other opportunities available! On July 20th, Evergreen will be hosting the DCM at Lincoln Park in West Seattle (see Facebook for more information). On the same day, Garfield will be doing a car wash at Montlake Hop-In Market, so stay tuned for more details! Car washes are a great way to get in your volunteer hours before the school year starts, and get a good tan in the process.  See you guys soon!
