Dear Key Clubbers,
I cannot believe Key Club has
started off to be such a success! Some of you are returning to Key Club from
previous years, and some of you are members for the first time. Either way, I
can promise you that this upcoming year will be very productive, filled with fun
and exciting activities. This year, we are providing more opportunities than
ever before for all of you to get involved in Key Club, and to really leave your
mark on East Meadow. I cannot help but feel that we have every reason to expect
this year will be utterly amazing!
A new year in Key Club also means
new people to meet, new committees to join, and of course, new events! Our
biggest new addition this year is our first ever Talent Show, in collaboration
with the EMHS Theater Guild. We have all been working vigorously to guarantee
that this event will be quite a success! You can get involved in the Talent Show
as well, by either performing, or working on the Talent Show Committee. If you
have questions, feel free to ask me or any other of the board members. Other fun
and exciting new events that we have in store are more Walk-A-Thons, creating
easy ways to volunteer, and a Movie Night in January.
We will also be doing many events
that we participated in last year, as well. We will have our annual Cystic
Fibrosis Phone-A-Thon, a Sports Tournament, and our biggest event of the year,
the Senior Citizens Thanksgiving Dinner. For the Thanksgiving Dinner, we will
need all of your efforts to donate and wrap prizes, collect food, and create
exciting and colorful decorations for our theme, Hollywood. It is so easy to
help out for the dinner, just ask any board member for info.
I canít forget District
Convention, either, the weekend away at Kutsherís Country Club on March 18-20.
If youíre an active Key Clubber who participates in most events and
accumulates many points over the year, youíll be invited to go on District
Convention, a weekend filled with water volleyball, ice skating, dances, talent
shows, and tons of fun with Key Clubbers from all over New York State. It is
definitely worth going, so try your hardest to volunteer, and youíll be able
to come with us on this amazing trip!
The events that Key Club
participates in provide immeasurable benefits to the community, and leave
lasting impressions of the hard work and amazing accomplishments that high
school students can accomplish with a group effort. By giving your efforts,
people throughout the community will appreciate what you have done, and you will
receive a lot back in more ways than you can imagine. If you give to Key Club,
Key Club can open many, many doors for you and your future. Never hesitate to
get involved; it will only be for the better of your home, school, community,
and most importantly, yourself.
Iím looking forward to
everyoneís energy and enthusiasm for the rest of this year, and I canít wait
to see what great things we can accomplish together. Everyone working as one
unit can change the world around us for the better, and leave our mark as an
example for generations to come. So go out there, get involved, and see you at
the next Key Club event!
Yours in caring and service,
