A Message from Governor Aric Hello, Missouri-Arkansas! After an action-packed summer, it’s time to start preparing for the school year, which means rolling out Key Club to a whole new group of incoming freshmen and upper classmen who have never experienced Key Club before. I hope you are up to the challenge! We recently learned that our Trustee for the upcoming year will be Jack Vielhauer of the New York District. He will be bringing new ideas for service and helping ensure that our Key Club year is the best possible. I’m also looking forward to the great things that our International President Rebecca Riley will be working on. Among her goals are securing more sponsorships to enhance the experience and get more attendance at ICON. Through her efforts this year, Mo-Ark was able to provide a scholarship to attend ICON. This is also the time of year to be thinking about attending a Key Leader event. Key Leader is designed to inspire individuals to do their personal best through service leadership. There are two local events coming up: October 12-14 in Bourbon, MO and November 2-4 in Hot Springs, AR. For more information go to www.key-leader.org. If you need my assistance with anything, let me know. arichelm@sbcglobal.net or 660-635-2101

I would like to take the time to thank you for the encouragement and support you gave me for my campaign at ICON. I am humbled and gracious for being able to represent such an amazing district on the International level. My goals are here to include you and make your experience even more exciting! I hope to increase communication among clubs, divisions, districts, and overall International. I plan to create resources for clubs, divisions, and districts as a whole to help guide them as they begin a new service year with the positions they have been elected or appointed to. I want the club level to be on the same level as International. Everyone in Key Club is a leader, and they can’t show leadership without knowledge. Everyday, no matter your position in Key Club, you are a leader! I am looking forward to an amazing service year and can’t wait to meet you all! If you have questions or concerns, feel free to email or Facebook me! Jack Vielhauer, International Trustee

The 69th Annual Key Club International Convention was held July 4-7 in Orlando, Florida. Delegates elected their new International Board, raised funds for Eliminate, and made lots of new friends. Check out the following pages for a complete timeline of ICON. 2

The Governor’s Project: Special Olympics As you all know, Special Olympics is near to my heart. It has provided me opportunities for service that has fueled my passion to serve others. I think it can give you that same drive, which is why I have selected Special Olympics as this year’s Governors Project.

be based on club size (Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum). There will also be two trophies presented to Special Olympics Heroes. These will be the overall top two clubs who raise the most money per member and provide the most service hours per member.

The only thing Key Clubbers love more than service, is a little friendly competition. So...there will be awards and recognition for your participation with Special Olympics. Each club that participates in a project with or for Special Olympics will receive a certificate of recognition. Clubs will also compete for recognition for raising the most money per member and providing the most service hours per member for Special Olympics. These awards will

Apply for a Youth Opportunity Fund Grant Hurry, it’s not too late. The deadline for application for the Youth Opportunity Fund is quickly approaching. Does your club have a great project idea? Are you short on the cash necessary to get the project off the ground? Then you should apply for a grant from the Youth Opportunity Fund (YOF). You can request anywhere from $200 to $2000. The application is not difficult to complete as long as you have your project thoroughly planned. You can print the application at http://keyclub.org/service/fund/ yof/yofgrant.aspx.

Make sure to get your cameras flashing while you’re raising funds and providing service. Submit those photos on CD with your contest entry and we’ll compile a video of the Mo-Ark Special Olympics project participants. Not sure how to get involved with Special Olympics? If you are an Arkansas club, go to www.specialolympicsarkansas.org. You can then select your region or county for contact information. In Missouri, go to www.somo.org and select your region or county. The Special Education Department at your school could be a great resource for you as well. I encourage each of the Mo-Ark clubs to get involved and become a hero to a Special Olympics athlete. - Governor Aric Helmandollar

Several Key Club members were pretty convinced that their luggage had been lost as we waited forever for luggage. They passed the time by entertaining each other with amateur comedy and striking funny poses.

The Lego table in Downtown Disney was a top attraction. Despite sweltering temperatures, Mo-Ark Key Clubbers hung out at the table to create masterpieces. Guess you never outgrow Legos. 3

Eating your way around the world in a day can only be done at Epcot. Kat Murray, Olivia Oberling, Heather Henning and Jerricah Stringer pause quickly for the camera before they resume their dining experience.


Halloween is my favorite holiday. It is no secret that I am a candy-aholic. My second birthday party was candy-themed. Aside from tiny boxes of Nerds, the best part of Halloween is Trick or Treat for UNICEF. It is a great excuse to put together a costume and have some door-to-door fun with fellow Key Clubbers. Again this year, Key Clubbers around the world will pool their donations to benefit The Eliminate Project. Together we can continue to save mothers and their children by ridding the earth of maternalneonatal tetanus. Last year Key Club raised more than $577,901 and saved more than 321,056. For only $1.80 the life of a mother and her children can be saved. Trick or treat for UNICEF is an easy project. Your club can canvass door-to-door, set up at a football game, or collect at some other place where large groups of people gather. To establish an online collection website go to http://youth.unicefusa.org and click on the trick or treat online link. If you participated in Trick or Treat for UNICEF last year, your boxes and supply kit will be arriving this fall. If you did not participate last year, you will need to call 1-800-Kiwanis x411 to request a kit. You will be excited to see the boxes have been redesigned this year.

Be sure to check out the UNICEF video that comes with your shipment from UNICEF. It will inspire your members to get out and get collecting. So get those costumes ready and let’s top last year’s amount and continue our push to Eliminate MNT.

Great ideas for service projects and fundraisers could be found with various vendors that were set up. Some even had items for sale to support their causes. How many pairs of shoes and glasses could Toms have donated if they’d only had our size?


New Member Recruitment Inclusiveness; it’s one of the four core values upon which Key Club International has been built. Being inclusive, though, often means more than just sitting back and accepting applications. In many instances, it entails going out and soliciting those applications in the first place. To do this, set up the booth at your school orientation, host a party for rush week, or—one of my favorites—host a member recruitment social event. In preparation for your event, make a list of everything you’ll need. Such a list should include the newest Key Club promotional and marketing resources. You can order these supplies (generally free of charge) by going to www.keyclub.org and clicking on the “shop” tab in the upper left-hand corner. This will take you to the Key Club store and you will want to look under literature. In addition to promotional materials, you will want the latest editions of your club and division newsletter, scrapbooks and other materials that illustrate who you are and what you do. Food and drink are always popular and boost attendance, and you’ll want to prepare speeches and ice breakers and games. Consider inviting your Kiwanis sponsor or president to speak as well as your Lieutenant Governor if s/he is available. Often, these people have the knowledge and experience to answer any question a prospective member could pose. Keep weather in mind as you select a venue for your event. The best time to host is during summer right before the start of the year. A park or pavilion is a great place. Other ideas include popular restaurants in your area, community centers, or even your school gym. Every location has it’s own benefits—you must decide which is best for your event. Make sure you invite everyone. After all, inclusiveness is the name of the game. Tell all your current club members in advance, and formally invite all incoming freshmen-and tell them to bring friends! It’s the more the merrier when you’re talking Key Club membership. But remember, always plan and prepare for more than you expect to attend. This will make embarrassing shortages and hard feelings from being left out impossible. Good luck with your event, and we look forward to welcoming your new members to the MissouriArkansas District of Key Club International!

Shopping for Key Club apparel, pens, lanyards, note cards and so much more was made easy as the Key Club Store came to us. And speaking of easy, how about those cool hotel touch screen directories? They made getting lost in the hotel almost impossible.

Remember those gray “Roman Into Service” t-shirts? A quick hotel room make-over and they become tie-dye. Many Mo-Arkers could be seen sporting the new look.

Caucusing is a big part of International Convention. While it may not be the highlight of convention, it is important to hear from the candidates so that the best leaders are selected. Here Jack Vielhauer addresses the constituents from Caribbean -Atlantic, Missouri-Arkansas and Pennsylvania.


House of Delegates Results The House of Delegates at the 69th Annual Key Club Convention proved to be a lesson in Roberts Rules of Order. In addition to electing our new International Board, we debated and voted on 20 amendments. The session lasted just over five hours. Thank goodness for electronic voting devices. They kept the pace of the Delegates Session moving quickly. Following is a wrap up of the amendments that were passed during the House of Delegates. Keep in mind that amendments are not finalized until they are approved by the Kiwanis International Board. Amendment 1 - Article V. Organizing and Chartering Clubs - Passed - Changed the wording to reflect that Key Clubs can now be chartered outside of a high school. Amendment 2 - Article VI. Club Operations - Passed - Permits individual clubs to set the frequency of their club meetings. Amendment 3 - Article VI. Club Operations - Passed - Changes the terminology of Major Emphasis Program to Major Emphasis. Amendment 4 - Article XIII. Board of Trustees - Passed - Permits the Key Club Director to notify Trustees of actions taken by the Board by physical or electronic mail. Amendment 5 - Article XVI. Delegates and Delegates At-Large - Passed - Give clubs in non-districted regions the same rights and privileges as clubs in districted regions. Amendment 9 - Article XIX. Vacancies in Office - Passed - Allows the Board to consider removals from office at meetings held via alternative means. Amendment 10 - Article XX. Committees - Passed - Strikes standing committees and states that committees and their duties will be published by September 1st or within 60 days of the formation of the committee. Amendment 11 - Article XXI. Official Publication - Passed - Strikes section 3 which defines the subscription price to the official publication. All other amendments failed or were deemed out of order as they were in violation of Kiwanis policies. Again, amendments are not final until approved by Kiwanis International Board of Trustees. Mo-Ark’s candidate for International Trustee was Jake Zorn. With 22 candidates for trustee, the competition was tough. Despite not being elected, Jake represented the district with intelligence, class and style. Great job, Jake!

Even though caucusing lasted four hours, Reagan Allgood, Shanna Nichols and Abby Prueitt still had smiles on their faces.

Clark County High School Starts the Year Off Right

In April, Clark County Key Club sponsored a “Kiss the Pig” Contest to help raise funds for the ELIMINATE Project. Between Clark County’s two elementary schools and the middle school as well as a few donations from the high school, they were able to raise $120.67 in loose change. The kids at the Running Fox Elementary School in Clark County raised the most with nearly $40.00 in change. The deal that was made was that the student whose school raised the most money per student got the witness their principal, and many teachers and fellow students, kiss a piglet that belonged to CCHS Key Club Sponsor, Susan Turpin. Clark County raised enough money for 67 vaccinations. In May CCHS Key Club agreed to work at the elementary school PTO Carnival in the food stand. In the six hours of serving food, CCHS Key Club was able to raise $350.00 in profit, which, they decided to put back for the 2013 ICON budget. CCHS Key Club held a Gas Pumping Fundraiser on June 9th. CCHS Key Club held this fundraiser at their local Casey’s General Store in Kahoka and asked customers if they would like their gas pumped. No set price was asked for their services, and they just told their customers that donations were accepted to help support the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, UNICEF, and March of Dimes. Donation totaled to $280.00, Casey’s agreed to double that amount to bring the fundraiser total to $560.00. Keep up the great work CCHS Key Club and thank you for all of your hard work.

Day of Service During Holiday Season Last Christmas season, the Joplin High School Key Club celebrated Christmas by having a “day of service”. There were a total of twenty-two Key Clubbers who volunteered. During this day of service, the JHS Key Club made holiday cards for the Children’s Miracle Network, went Christmas caroling and made paper flowers for people at the Joplin Health and Rehabilitation Center, and finally, they put together and delivered holiday gift baskets for families in need. The baskets consisted of enough food for a large holiday meal and toys for children if there were any. At the end of the day, the JHS Key Club managed to rack up 86 hours of service and celebrated with a pizza party, Secret Santa gift exchange, and movies. Key Club was able to accomplish a lot in one day by working together. During Christmas, they are reminded that giving can feel just as good as receiving. With this in mind, they have decided to put their efforts together to reach out to a few members of the community that could use the help. The JHS Key Club hopes to continue doing this “day of service” for years to come.

Rebecca Riley proved to be real, right and ready as she was elected International President. Jake Zorn is pictured here with Rebecca.


on Service Trivial Pursuits A benefit for the Eliminate Project On the morning of May 10, 2012 members of Trenton High School Key Club hosted a Trivia contest for students who were anxiously awaiting summer break which began the next day. Students formed teams of six people and competed in trivia categories such as Eliminate, That Kid Who Used to Be in My Class, Cartoons of our Childhood, Candy, Energy Drinks, Video Games, Who lives Here?, The Hunger Games, and Quotable Movies. A flood of students entered the commons just after 1st hour ready to compete. Students from the Life Skills class popped popcorn for all teams and Key Clubbers sold soda. The event began with the Eliminate video. The students were grateful to learn about the issue and felt good about the cause their $18 entry fee supported. The competition consisted of 4 rounds with 15 questions in each round. Players also had the opportunity to answer a bonus question in each round. The questions were delivered by Mr. Cowling, everyone’s favorite math teacher, and were displayed on televisions in the commons. Audio and video clips and bags of candy for tasting added a level of excitement to the competition. By lunch time we had determined a winning team and had raised $350 for The Eliminate Project.

Pin trading proved to be a popular pastime during International Convention. Each Key Club member that traveled with the District Tour received a bag of more than 20 pins to trade. Marty pins were highly desired and quite valuable in the trade.

Historian Madison Cox, Kentucky-Tennessee and Governor Aric Helmandollar gathered ideas for new service projects during the Service Fair. Approximately 40 groups set up during the Service Fair and attendees could also meet the candidates face-to-face. 11 11

Interested in running for District Board? Are you interested in running for Mo-Ark board? The MoArk board elects Lieutenant Governors and Executive members every year at District Leadership Conference. Being on board takes some work: there are monthly newsletters to write, clubs to visit, a fall rally to organize, and four mandatory weekend meetings to attend. It is a really great opportunity to grow as a leader.

Service Partners Work for Key Club partner organizations and make a greater impact.

Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces to combat maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT) worldwide. This historic initiative, called The Eliminate Project, will protect the lives of babies and mothers all over the globe and aims to help put an end to this cruel, centuries-old disease by 2015. The final push to eliminate MNT globally will require $110 million and the dedicated work of UNICEF and every member of the Kiwanis family, specifically Key Club. As The Eliminate Project is the Mo-Ark district Key Club project, each club should plan to raise money for this worthy project. Visit theeliminateproject.org for information and fund raising ideas. Your Lieutenant Governor will also be able to assist with ideas for projects that support Eliminate.

The goal of Children’s Miracle Network is to help as many children as possible by raising funds for children’s hospitals, and to keep funds in the community in which they were raised to help local children.
