MESSAGE FROM THE EDITOR Dear Key Clubbers, I hope you’ve been having a good week so far! I know the schedule’s a bit weird this week due to testing and early dismissal, but for future reference, we do in fact postpone the weekly meeting to Thursday on 2-hour early dismissal weeks. There are a lot of things going on this week that are very important and that you should be aware of. First of all, there has been many additions to the events list, in the hopes that you will all achieve the 65 hour goal—not required for convention attendance, but nevertheless helpful when it comes to winning recognition. And speaking of DCON, there is still time to turn in your forms! The earlier you turn it in, the less it will cost you. In addition, DCON marks the end of the current officer board’s terms and the beginning of the 2014-2015 officer board’s terms. We will be holding nominations and elections in the coming weeks; I’ll be running for vice president and will need a bulletin editor protégé! Fundraising chair is also another position that has been so far left unclaimed, if I’m not mistaken. If any of you are free this Saturday, be sure to support Bradley and the other candidates for Lieutenant Governor! Reanne Wong
