Hey D19S Beastie Bunnies!
Member Spotlight....... 3
It’s been almost a couple of months since I had the privileged honor to be called your Lt. Governor for this upcoming year. I am really grateful that you chose me to become your new Lt. Governor, and as such I promise to always be there for you, whenever needed.
Summer Socials ........... 3 Intro to Board. ............. 4 Farewell Seniors………4
For this upcoming year I have many new ideas in store that will make this year unforgettable for all you Beastie Bunnies out there! One of these many ideas I have in store, is to further help the bond and unity that we all share amongst one another, not only as a nationwide organization, but as a family. These ideas that I have in store for us are mighty, but it is nothing we cannot handle! This past month was our first DCM together, and with that I believe we became a bit closer as a family. With the unity present from the games we both shared and played, and the caring, and motivation of each person that was there, I believe truly that the DCM was a success. I hope to further increase unity in our future DCM’s together, and further grow this family bond that we all share! This year is just beginning and with that many new adventures await us all. We as the Division 19 South Beastie Bunnies will make this year unforgettable and one worth remembering. We as a family will grow and prosper this division into something greater and we will be the best we can be! For we are the Beastie Bunnies of this year, and we roar with excitement of a better tomorrow! -Ramon Esquivel 2011-2012 Lt. Governor

We Only Part To Meet Again… Helloooo D19S! It has been a great year with you all. I am so glad to be part of such an awesome division that never fails to stand out from the crowd. From our hot pink shirts to our cute bunny ears on our head, we are by far the most beastly out of the district. Being a beastie bunny for the past four years has been a pleasure and honor. I hope you all never lose touch with your bunny spirit and Key Club passion. It’s amazing how active and involve everyone in the division is and I truly admire your dedication. Special thanks to Michelle Kim for being the best LTG I’ve met yet. Without her kindness and help, I would be so lost in the division. L-O-V-E! WE LOVE OUR LTG! <3 on behalf of West High Key Club, I would like to thank you for the best memories and friendships. -Michelle Trinh WHS President D19S Represent! It’s been awesome serving my RUHS club and this division as secretary, vice president, and president. I never thought I’d make so many friends from other schools but here I am somewhat broken out of the shell that is Redondo Beach. I’m really sad to be leaving Key Club and can only hope that Circle K is half as awesome as this experience has been. The division is in very capable hands and I expect to hear soon about our division buying the most LTGs at Fall Rally and winning the spirit stick! Bunnies let them hear us scream! S
O U T H 19!! -Matt Louis RUHS President D19S! Wow it’s been quite a year hasn’t it? Countless service events, mostly DCMs, Almost getting that spirit stick at Fall Rally, and last, but of course not least, DCON. It’s been a blast meeting new people from the Beastie Bunny Division, and bonding with the ones I’ve previously met last year. I, personally, am proud to be part of D19S. We’ve got the spirit, we’ve got the service, and we’ve got a lot of people! *ahem*NORTH*ahem* I kid! But what I’m not kidding about is that D19S is like a second family to me. And the fact that I have to leave this beautiful family is something I can’t get a grasp on. Always will I be a Key Clubber. Always will I be a member of CNH. And Always I will be a Beastie Bunny. Before I finish off this sappy, corny, good-bye, I want to give a shout-out to the previous LTG Michelle Kim. Thank you so much for all you done for this club, and for all the rides you gave me. Also to Jenny Nguyen, one of the most Amazing Key Clubbers I met this school year. And to the new LTG Ramen! Ramen, I’ve seen you grow in two years, and looking at the now, I am so proud of what you’ve been able to accomplish. You’ll lead D19s to go a buzz and beeyond! Okay, I guess this does for my good-bye letter… ill come try to visit
“Goodbyes are not forever, goodbyes are not the end they simply mean I’ll miss you till we meet again”
Final words from…
Greetings Bunnies, I treasure every memory I created this year thanks to each and everyone one of you! I bid you all one last farewell, but I rest assured knowing that you are in Ramon’s hands. Fortunately, I made amazing new friends from schools all over the South Bay, learned other schools’ traditions, and became humble by how amazing everyone is. I apologize for all my awkward games, but I hope you were able to enjoy quality time with other Key Clubbers. Compared to the other divisions, we are the Beastliest and Cutest! Although I dread the very thought of leaving Key Club forever, I hope that everyone stays active and does not forget their passions for service. How do I feel? I feel extremely blessed to have met you. To all my underclassmen friends, good luck and try not to procrastinate at least once a month. Juniors, please finish college applications during the summer. Seniors, congratulations and “If you live to be 100, I hope to live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you”-Winnie the Pooh Michelle Kim Michelleykim92@gmail.com 2010-2011 Lt.

when I can! -Tyler Nutsathiya Narbonne Cheer Master. Hey D19S! How was your year? Man it’s been so much fun and so successful. We ought to be so proud of ourselves and of course, our IP LTG Michelle. On behalf of North Key Club I want to thank each and every one of you for being so hardworking, inspiring and friendly towards one another. We’ve all come to be close friends; and even act as if we all attended the same school! We really are one of a kind: the spirit, the people, and the mascot! I know we’re all proud to be beastie bunnies and it’s definitely been an unforgettable experience. Be sure to help out Ramon and our new club presidents. Show new D19s members how awesome Beastie Bunnies really are! There’s no doubt in my mind that our division will be the best out there! On behalf of all seniors I will miss all of you. And good luck next year and the years to come! Never ever forget us! Keep up the Key Club spirit and be successful! How do you feel?! -Carlo Farrales North Torrance Historian
