Seattle Rally Recap Fun, Sun and Service! On August 13th Key Clubbers from all over the Seattle area came together at Kent Meridian High School to celebrate Key Club! Although only 5 members from division 27 went...we had a great time! Starting with the opening ceremony with guest speaker Hoan Do. He was a great inspirational speaker that got everyone pumped for the rally. After the opening ceremony Key Clubbers attended informational forums including officer training. Later in the afternoon there were fun forums including How to Woo with Matt Wu and icebreakers. Concluding with the closing ceremony, awarding Division 34 with the spirit stick and a Miracle Minute where we raised $501 for Project Educate!
