Official Newsletter of Division 1 South of the Texas-Oklahoma Key Club District
In this issue:
Thank you to all the Key Club members/officers of Division 1N & 1S, and Kiwanians who attended the joint-division club officer induction + PCM!
Please visit tokeyclub.com for more info
A word from your LTG Summer is finally here! It’s all we’ve waited for since the beginning of the school year… so do you have any plans? Perhaps, with your Key Club? I HOPE SO. Anyways, if you continue reading this fantastic newsletter, I have included some ways you can still be involved with your community this summer. JUST BECAUSE SCHOOL STOPS, DOESN’T MEAN SERVICE DOES. Please keep that in mind that continuous communication with me doesn’t stop as well. I might be annoying but I’d like to know what your club is up to. So constantly update me, please! Also, if your club is planning a social/interclub anytime soon, please let me know. I’ll try my best to come. Facebook updates will be there constantly, as well. I love letting you guys know what’s up in the division. One more thing, if you guys could respond to my emails with anything (a;sldkfj;asldjkf would even work) so I know you guys have read them, or at least received them, that would be GREAT. As well as summer service, I hope you guys continue to send Kevin, Mrs. Newsham, your respective Kiwanis advisor, and I your monthly report, even if you guys haven’t done anything the whole month. It let’s us know at least you are active enough to send one in. The schools that have sent me theirs are great! I hope to see more as the summer moves along. Enjoy your summer!
Joint-Division club officer induction + PCM
May 12, 2012 This was the first PCM of the year! If you didn’t attend (why…) don’t worry, there will be plenty more to come during the year. If you didn’t attend, that most likely means you didn’t get officially inducted into office, so please contact me!
Ronald McDonald House Charities
For those of you that don’t know, my divisional project is the Ronald McDonald House Charities! A divisional project is a service project of a LTG’s choosing, where the division takes part of; quite selfexplanatory, yeah? Anyways, this is another way you can continue your service during the summer, and earn a few points for participating in my divisional project! Killing two birds with one stone? YES.
