This year’s theme was “Swing Into the Jungle of Service”, so the 27 District Board members dressed up as different animals belonging to the jungle. Since our Lieutenant Governor of Division One, Cecilia Kang, was a jaguar, most EHTHS Key Clubbers drew cat whisk-

sion One to help us win the spirit stick for Cecilia! (: Also, you guys were all so adorable when you had your cat whiskers drawn on! :3

HEY KEY CLUB How do you feel?! We feel good,

OH! We feel so good,

OH! SPREAD THE SERVICE—KEY CLUB WEEK! November 7-11, 2011 keyclub.org/keyclubweek

ELIMINATE MNT stands for maternal and neonatal tetanus. MNT is a deadly disease that takes the lives of almost 60,000 babies and their mothers each year. The disease causes babies to suffer repetitive painful convulsions and intense sensitivity to light and touch.

Bring a friend to Key Club! Bring a friend to one of our Key Club meetings or a service project. Even though they are not in Key Club, they get an insight of what Key Club does. If they enjoy it, convince them to join Key Club!

What is MNT?

Kudos to the Key players! Show thanks to your advisors, teachers, parents, and the Key players in your life. Something as simple as a thank-you note or something as big as an appreciation dinner can help you show your thanks!

Your way. Publicize Key Club in your own way—whether it be posters, social networking, or even a video! You could also combine all the other Key Club days and make it into one fun project. Make sure to have fun and make memories!

Key Club International is branch of Kiwanis International. In attempt to rid the world of MNT, Kiwanis and UNICEF teamed up to help provide three vaccines to over 100 million mothers and their future babies. Key Club helps to raise money to fund those vaccines through fundraising at the international, district, and club level.

Connect the K’s! Connect the different branches of the Kiwanis family by visiting our local Builder’s Club or K-Kids. Also, spread the word about Key Club to upcoming high-school students to further expand our club!

Continue beyond Key Club week! Publicizing Key Club isn’t limited to just this week! You can still go beyond these short five days and continue to spread the word about Key Club through newspapers, posters, and whatever you can think of!

Show your K in every way! Show your school and community what Key Club is all about! Wear your Key Club gear! Also, spread the word about Key Club to non-members and to your community.

Trick-or-Treat!—Key Clubbers fundraise for UNICEF BY VI NGUYEN IP Committee Chair

Key Leader 2011

Volume XVI, Issue 7 | October 18, 2011

What: A three-day long leadership program that teaches students that being a leader is helping others succeed and not themselves. When: December 9-11, 2011 Where: Camp Lebanon, Lebanon, New Jersey How much: $175 for Key Clubbers and $200 for non-Key Clubbers How: Register at www.key-leader.org

ast year, several EHTHS Key Clubbers went around Lacasta Lakes and Crystal Lakes to collect donations for UNICEF. UNICEF is an organization to provide food and healthcare to innocent children in countries that are still in horrible condition after World War II. It was a week past Halloween, but nonethe-

less, people were still quite generous. Some Key Clubbers dressed up in their Halloween costumes, so even though Halloween was over, residents of the Lacasta and Crystal Lakes community got to see people in mustard costumes, geisha costumes, Indian costumes, the traditional witch costume, etc. Some Key Clubbers even got to dress up and go around as the UNICEF collection

boxes. Splitting up in groups, and running to every house, Key Clubbers raised a lot of money. At the end of the day, after the money was counted, the participants hung out and played volleyball. It was a fun experience altogether. Join other Key Clubbers to raise money for UNICEF this year! Trust me, you will not regret it.

If you are looking for the location on Google Maps or MapQuest, search 79 Blossom Hill Road, Lebanon, NJ 08833 instead of Camp Lebanon.
