BACK TO SCHOOL Back to School ALREADY?
Key Club Basics
It's that time of year again! Lets strap on those back packs and get ourselves prepared for School. With the commencement of school, let's get back into the rhythm of our beloved Key Club. Start thinking of ways to reel in those freshman to the best thing that they have ever encountered. KEY CLUB!
Know the Key Club Pledge? Make it a regular part of your meetings!
Now, the only way to ensure success is to PLAN. Jumping into the school year with no idea of what you'll be doing is not the best idea. I suggest having a meeting before school starts. Plan out what fundraisers you will be doing, what service projects you will have, your meeting schedule and even when are the officer meetings. Above all, stay organized! I suggest having a key club calendar and binder or notebook!
Let's try to reel in new members!
1. Key Club info on Power Points, Tri-fold boards, or slide shows! Keep it fun, fresh, and attractive! 2. Be inviting, and friendly! Make the first move! 3. Hand out cards with when and where your first meeting will be! 4. Other great ideas are hug me signs, spirit gear, and candy! What will attract people to your club?
FUN and SUCESSFUL year! Stay involved in the division! Delegate! Committees are great ways to spread out responsibility! Keep it FUN! Ice breakers BABY! PLAN LIKE NO TOMORROW! Fundraisers, service projects, etc! Have frequent officer meetings! Cherish and love your Kiwanians! Keep them involved!
I pledge on my honor to uphold the objects of key club international, to build my home, school, and community, to serve my nation and god, and to combat all forces which undermine these institutions. The Key Club Chant is an ESSENTIAL!

D. 34 Spotlight! Name: Justin Ryan Munn Favorite food: Anything Summer passtime: Play Videogames Favorite color: Orange What is your favorite thing about key club? My favorite thing about Key Club is meeting new people.
Describe your experience at Icon? -My experience at ICON was simply, amazing. It was my first time to the East Coast, and I cannot wait to go back for ICON 2013 in Washington DC. There was two parts of my ICON experience, the first one was the District Tour. It consisted of 45 amazing Key Clubbers that live on Key Club blood. I got to roam Disney World with them without any adult supervision. I got to get out of the crummy weather in Washington and go wear a suit of sunscreen because of the 100 degree weather. I got to meet all of my favorite Disney characters growing up such as Woody and Buzz from Toy Story! I got to buy a Harry Potter wand from his castle at Universal Studios Orlando. But really, there is not much to explain about the tour without making you guys jealous! The secon d part of my ICON experience was the Convention! The meet and greet was alright, not as good as DCON, but it was cool trading pins with people all over the United States and the World. ICON is pretty much the same thing as DCON, just in house of delegates we voted for International Board. House of Delegates went passed the scheduled end time and everything was pushed back one hour, expect curfew sadly. There are two dances at ICON, one is for The Eliminate Project, and the other is a themed Dance. This yearâ€™s themed dance was 80's Neon Themed. I did not go, but it was okay. Overall, ICON was an amazing experience. I recommend you all go to next year! I promise you that you will return home with new friends, a lot of pins from different places, and great memories that will last forever.

WHAT IF YOU COULD
SAVE A BABY’S LIFE? Maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT) kills one baby every nine minutes — that's 60,000 babies every year who will never grow up, make their mothers laugh, play with friends or dream about the future. The effects of the disease are excruciating — tiny newborns suffer repeated, painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch. A significant number of women die from MNT each year too.
KCCP was founded in 2010 by past Governor Frank Morehouse. It was inspired by a little girl named Penny, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor. She later lost her fight against cancer. KCCP is in honor of Penny.
ATTENTION TO ALL PNW KEY CLUBEBRS!
KCCP is our DISTRICT PROJECT!
