    BERKELEY: Louisa O.

    Key Club is so devoted to helping and serving the com-munity. Were just a bunch of teenagers, but our devotion really gives us power and its really great to see us helping a lot of people in the community and around the world.

    Making pies at Uhuru Pies was pretty fun, a couple years back.

    I am looking forward to attending more service events in 2015!

    Club Members of the Month

    My favorite aspect of Key Club is meeting new people and hanging out with our other members.

    Favorite Key Club memory was working the Color Run in San Francisco last year.

    Im looking forward to doing as much service and meeting people as much as I can before Im off to college.

    PIEDMONT: Chris F.

    ENCINAL: Charlotte C.

    My favorite aspect of Key Club is that the members are not only in it for service hours, but many truly want to get to know each other and help better the community.

    Going to Six Flags was most memorable because I realized I was part of something bigger than just our school, and because it was fun.

    In 2015, I hope to become more involved at events and at the club.

A service Initiative is assigned each month in which clubs should focus a project or two on supporting the initiative.

    The February Focus is...

    Miracle Network Hospitals. CMN strives to save young lives battling virtually every type of childhood illness and injury by helping to purchase

    Conclave Recap

    ltg ELECTIntroduction

    Hello, my lovely Kiwis!

    I am so honored to be your next Lieutenant Governor. I am BEEyond excited to see what this term can bring for our division. I am so impressed with our dedication to service and leadership this past term, and I know that, together, we can achieve so much more.

    In the upcoming 2015-2016 term, I am SUPER excited to take F.L.I.G.H.T. with my Kiwis! Family is what Key Club is to me. We will share this experience with every single member and show others the true meaning of Car-ing, our way of life. Leadership is an important quality that can be found in any individual. Find the leader inside of you and help your community, one service hour at a time! Individuals are the most important part of this club. Every single person can make a difference in this world and I know we can shine a spotlight on every single mem-ber in Division 2. Goals are what drive our division forward. I plan to collaborate and communicate more with our Kiwanis clubs. This includes constant communication and, hopefully, joint service events. I hope to increase division membership and event attendance by 25%. As a division, we have a stronger focus on fundraising for our preferred charities. I will work with each individual club to set goals for the term. Home is what Key Club has become to me. I will bring this loving and accepting environment to our entire division. Everyone has a place in Key Club. Teamwork makes the dream work. Together, I know we can win the Spirit Stick at FRN and reach new altitudes as a division!

    I have high hopes for our division. I know with dedication, love, leadership, and service, we can reach these goals and more. I promise to continue the legacy of all my past Lt. Gs and bring this division growth in many ways. I will support this division as your next Lieutenant Governor so we can take F.L.I.G.H.T into new beginnings for Division 2!

    With Love and Service,

    Calvin TangDivision 2 Lieutenant Governor Elect 2015-2016

    CLUB REPORTS

    Alameda

    Albany

    Winter break has ended and its back to school for our club. Before the break started, we had a hot chocolate fund raiser which raised around $55. This month, Alameda Key Club went to bake pies at Uhuru, made ornaments to sell, cleaned up at Studio One, and distributed food at the Salvation Army during Christmas. We also plan on distributing the ornaments to our regular members to help fund raise. In addition, some of our members have shown inter-est in going to DCON during March after seeing a video from it.

    This month, Albany finished up old business to make way for the new year! We finished making and selling our Winter Wonder Candy Cards and handed them out before school ended. One of our presidents even dressed up as Santa Claus! We also attended the Decem-ber DCM for the ginger-bread house making contest, and two of our officers came in third place! We also kept up our monthly tradition with our Kiwanis Park Clean Up, making sure the park stayed neat and clean for our wonderful Kiwanians. Were so excited for the new year! Happy 2015 everyone!

    American Indian Public For the month of December, American Indian Public volunteered at the Oakland Kiwanis Holiday Auction. We also attended Interkey and had an awesome time bonding with mem-bers from both Interkey and Key Club. Moreover, we volunteered at the Dunsmuir Holiday Tradition. Before winter break, American Indian celebrated our clubs one year anniversary. Not only did we attend the DCM, but our school also helped clean up Art Studio 1 the fol-lowing day. Currently, American Indian Public is planning our club election and DCON 2015!

    This month Arroyo Key Club was really active in the beginning of December as we had five events all in one week! The events include Davis Street Foundation Toy Sorting, Bikes for Tykes, Dunsmuir-Hellman Event, Crochet for Charity, and Bridgeview Trail Restoration. After that week, we also had a Bike Helmet Sticker Event, Lorenzo Manor Craft Night, and Bikes for Tykes. Things then cooled down as winter break was approaching, but before our break, we finished the year off strong with our Winter Wonderland Photo Booth where we let Arroyo students take glamorous pictures at our own winter-themed photo booth with cute props made by our club! We are currently hosting elections for next terms board and are very excited for DCON!
