DIVISION 66 July DCM Recap On August 2nd, our club officers attended an Officer Training Conference at Gresham Library. Neighboring officers within Division 66 also attended this meeting (Clackamas, Corbett, Gresham, Sam Barlow, and Reynolds)! There, Division 66 Lieutenant Governor Brian Le and Convention Aid Ryan Miura gave some very helpful information; Information such as the basics of Key Club, the duties each officer position has, charities, and much more were discussed. Overall, we were able to receive a thorough in look of Key Club. Shout to Brian and Ryan for always being the real MVPS!

After the conference, a barbeque was held! Together, Division 66 and Kiwanians along with friends from Divisions 44, 62, 64 and 65 gathered for a fun filled day. During a Miracle Minute, we were able to raise $91 for the ELIMINATE Project! 50 mothers were provided enough money to receive vaccinations. From ice breakers to grubbing out on some delicious food, the day couldnâ€™t have end any better!
Seattle Rally Recap
On August 4th, Key Clubbers within Western Washington and a few other areas in the PNW gathered at Auburn Mountainview High School. The day was full of spirit battles, icebreakers, workshops, and pizza. With the help of all 340 Key Clubbers, we raised $475.15 during a Miracle Minute! 264 babies were saved. Talk about a Magical World of Service!
Centennial Car Wash Recap Following the 23rd day of August, Centennial Key Club held their very own car wash at Burgerville. The day was hot and sweaty, but we persevered along with the help of friends from Douglas and Clackamas!
Fundraising Updates A huge thank you to everyone who came out to help Centennial Key Clubâ€™s car wash! After spending 5 hours out in the hot summer day, we were able to raise a fair amount of money. The money we fundraise will go out to our club, the ELIMINATE Project, spirit gear, DCON, social events, and more!
Did you know that in every 9 minutes, a baby dies from a disease called MNT? MNT (maternal and neonatal tetanus) is caused when tetanus spores, found in soil, come into contact with open wounds during birth. Both the mother and baby become affected due to this contact. Every day, MNT has claimed the lives of 160 babies. This equals to the deaths of nearly 60,000 babies each year including many women. To fight against this horrible disease, Kiwanis International and UNIFEC joined together in an effort to not only decrease the number of deaths, but to eliminate MNT all together. Thus, the ELIMINATE Project came into play. Just a US$1.60 provides enough money for a mother to receive a vaccination for her and her future babies. As of now, only 25 countries remain with MNT. The campaign goal is to raise US$110 million by 2015. Through fundraisers, Miracle Minute, school projects, and many more joint efforts, Key Club International has helped raise a total of US$54 million as of 2014. We are so close and not even far away from fulfilling our goal! To find out on what you can do to help end this horrible disease, visit the Eliminate Project website or Facebook page.
