Early High School explores Dallas during District Convention 2014. 1
Happy summer! I know you excited to be out of school, because lets face it, we all need a break. Am I right, juniors? No matter what grade, we all get stressed. But summer is a
time to put all that behind us and just enjoy life. I hope you all have some fun plans for
this summer! I just found out Ill have to go to Fort Worth for a three day yearbook camp, come home, and go to Dallas the very next
day for Summer Board. So thatll be interesting. Its also the time to tour colleges!
This summer will be full of new adventures for all of us! Its crazy how much will change
in this upcoming year.

Divisional Goals for 2014-2015
1. Every club to send in their monthly reporto I really want to see every club in this division reporting again. It is
a valuable tool not only for the district, but for the club. I know the report can be confusing, but I am here to help!
2. Better relations with Kiwaniso I would love to see more interclub projects with your sponsoring
Kiwanis club. They are some of the sweetest people around. Attending meetings to also a good way to get involved with the rest of the K Family.
3. Implement more interclubso We all love meetings new people, especially those united under the
same goal- to serve others.
4. Increase unity within Division 12o The clubs in this division are a pretty good distance apart. The
closest club to San Angelo is 100 miles away. I want us to feel like one big family. I want us to know the names of people in the other clubs and become friends. Because were all working towards the same objective.
4Childrens Miracle NetworkHospitals
I have attached some projects Governor Katie sent out. Please read and consider completing a few in this
upcoming year! Here are my favorite:
Birthday in a Box
Many patients spend their birthdays in the hospital due
to an unexpected visit. Give a child a great birthday to
remember by donating a Birthday in a box.
assemble small bags of personal items including
shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush, toothpaste,
mouthwash, hairbrush and more.
Help stock toy closets throughout the hospital with
board games, stickers, small bottles of bubbles, dolls,
dinosaurs, video games and more.
60,000 --- The number of mothers and babies whose lives are stolen because of MNT.
9 --- The number of minutes from now that a mother or child will die of MNT.
34 --- The number of countries still at high risk for MNT.
$110 million --- The amount of money that we must raise to eliminate MNT.
2015 --- The year that we must raise this money by.
$1.80 --- The amount it costs to vaccinate one mother and their future babies.
61 million --- The number of lives we will help save or protect if we meet our goal.
ELIMINATE ProjectFundraising Ideas
Happy Box- At club meetings bring a locked box with a slit in the top. Have Key Clubbers go around and donate change or dollars. As they do this, have members share reasons why they are happy or reasons why they are happy to donate their money. Stress the fact that it only takes $1.80 to save a life.
Dance Competition- Host a dance contest and charge a participation fee as well as a fee for all spectators. Key Clubs and Local Kiwanis Clubs could set up a booth to sell drinks and snacks. The last couple to stop dancing wins a prize!
Change War- Hold a school wide competition separated by classroom to collect the most change for The Eliminate Project. The goal is to see which classroom can raise the most money. Talk to administration about what kind of prize the winning class can get- one suggestion would be pizza.
Race to Eliminate- Hold a 5k race or a walk at a local park or high school track and charge registrants a flat fee to participate in the race. This event will promote health and wellness in the local community as well as raise awareness regarding the project and open countless opportunities for participants to contribute to the effort to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. At the finish line, give each participant an Eliminate Project shirt and wristband. (This would be a great interclub!)
Minute to Win it- Make it a competition, boys versus girls. Pass around one blue and one pink baby bottle during your clubs meeting and see which group can donate the most money in one minute.
Show Your Love, Save a Life- Host a Valentines Day dance to raise money. Tickets can be sold while food, flowers, and music can be donated by members or the community.
then youll be
happy too. This years Divisional Project isnt about being grand. You dont need to be the biggest club, have the most resources, or live in a big city. This
project is about spreading joy. Even the simplest acts can make a lasting
impact. The only requirement for this project is to do at least 10 Random
Acts of Kindness around your community and send in proof of
completion. Here are some ideas to get you started:
Make birthday boxes for children living in shelters Visit a nursing home Donate blankets to the police and fire departments Bring flowers to a hospital Donate to the food pantry Throw a card shower for someone in your community Create a homeless care package Write letters to deployed military Collect dog treats for the animal shelter Hang up signs promoting happiness Tape quarters to a vending machine Clean up a local park Tape sticky notes with compliments around your school Eat lunch with someone who is lonely Hand out candy canes during Christmas time
And more! I cant wait to hear what you guys come up with!
