Hello all you wonderful Key Clubbers!!!
We raised about $100 dollars for our Key Club, SO WAY TO GO!!!! Everyone deserves a pat on the back, you all worked so loyally and diligently! We crushed ( Hehe punny.... ) last year's earnings and everything! Also, a HUGE shout out to Jennie Wiegert for running the "Crush for Crush" and helping the Key Club to raise money, and give the club and school something fun to do!
|Just a few of the many Crushes all ready to go!|
In addition, Emily Bullock, Kaylene Cuthbertson, and Sydney DeWall worked the food pantry this last Saturday, and helped many in need. They aided those in need choose food to take home. The foo pantry is every second Saturday of the month, and it's a lot of to fun to work! makes you feel good about yourself knowing that you've done something to help out the people of the community.
We also had another blanket making session with the Random Acts of Kindness club from the elementary school. Everyone worked hard, and we got a lot done!
|Good team work at the food pantry!|
Finally, the Key Club just helped host a woman's tea time at the Public Library. it was a huge success, so big thanks to Andrew Nestler, Sydney DeWall, Haley Decker, Jazmin Martinez, Johanna Nash, Emily Gorman, and Alyssa Schiesher!
|So many people working together to make some blankets for the homeless!|

Nominations for next term's officers are open to anyone in good standing with Key Club ( this means you have all your hours and attend most of the meetings ). Nominate yourself or a friend for President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Statistical Secretary, Secretary, or Editor. You don't need any previous education or training for these positions, although it is helpful. The officers of the previous term will be around to help the new officers if they find themselves needing help. Ms. Brown is an immense help as well, so don't be shy!!!
