MESSAGE FROM THE EDITOR Dear Key Clubbers, I hope you’ve been having a great summer so far! I just discovered the updated Key Club graphic standards manual, so this month’s newsletter has gotten a dramatic facelift. Do you like this new design? Let me know! Also, thank you to those of you who came out to help out and wash cars on Saturday! I had a lot of fun washing cars, waving signs, and fundraising for DCON. Although I cannot make it to the next car wash on August 10th since I am out of town, I hope that you will volunteer a few hours of your own time to give back to the club. Even if you can’t volunteer, you can always drop by with supplies or get your car washed. Why not come and soak up some rays with the Key Club family? Even though July has been kind of quiet in terms of volunteer events, there are a lot of cool opportunities coming up next month. We have two more car washes, the August DCM, which traditionally is a car wash, a possible joint event with Franklin, and Seattle Rally! Hope to see you there!

First Car Wash of the Summer Garfield Key Club’s first car wash of the summer took place on Saturday at the Montlake Hop-In Grocery. This car wash was the first of three summer car washes hosted by Garfield Key Club to fundraise money for the annual District Convention (DCON). Key Clubbers volunteered a few hours of their summer to wash cars, wave signs, and promote Key Club and its values to customers. In between shifts, volunteers were able to spend time with each other, buying lunch at the Grocery and having fun with spraying each other down with the hose.

Between washing cars, volunteers were able to educate customers about Key Club, and also promote Key Club to potential members and Garfield students. The officers are grateful for those who came out to help with the car wash – those who volunteered definitely proved their commitment to the club, even if you could only volunteer part of the day! Together, this car wash raised $355! Future car washes are scheduled for August 10th and 24th, in addition to the August DCM car wash (tentative).

Birthdays Jennifer Pham (7/27) Enjoy your special day!
