IF you are a college bound senior who has

been accepted, congratulations. If by chance

you were rejected from your dream university,

don’t worry- it wasn’t where you are supposed

to go. OR if you need a distraction of your fu-

ture and present like I do, District Convention

(DCON) is the perfect one- trust me.

Imagining 3,500 other Key Clubbers from

CNH District being there for the exact same

reason as I am- to celebrate the year of ac-

complishments and to meet new people! Oh

and while we are there, we mise as well learn

a few things and have a little fun. While we

elect our new District Officers, Division 23 will

rocking our yeti style smiles.

As many are well aware of, I am also the

president at Lowry. During our last meeting,

members received a packet full of DCON infor-

mation. I personally believe in order to have a

strong division like ours, we all need to share

our secrets. Here’s mine: We sell See’s Candy,

host a movie night with a silent auction (all

items are donated), and we ask the communi-

ty for donations. Lowry shared our secrets,

now it is time for you to share yours! Email me

at and tell me your ideas

- you will receive YETI points for it!!!!!

Have a wonderful rest of the month! I can’t

wait to read your ideas and see you all at Dis-

trict Convention!!!

Always with love,

Alli Lampshire

Enthusiasm and spirit that has evolved with this change has been overwhelm-

ing. Now I wish we could have changed it sooner. I received complements

about becoming YETI"S from LTGs and advisors. I guess the best thing about

being a "YETI" is the change in attitude towards Division 23.

The best thing about being a Yeti is surrounding

myself with the best Key Clubbers that CNH

has! I also love it because... well, Yetis are

freaking awesome.

THE Yeti

I love being a yeti because to me be-

ing a yeti means spirit, pride, love, and

one for all. With out being a yeti, I

wouldn't be who I am today.

day of magical service.

Memo from The LtG

Page 6

Hey D23!! I hope that you have all been enjoying your win-

ter breaks, finals, and new semesters. As a division, we have a ton to look forward to; and as a member, you have

an abundance of opportunities to enjoy the rest of this Key Club term to its fullest.

The first thing I would like to mention is District Con-vention. This is YOUR chance to celebrate, learn, and enjoy

your weekend in Santa Clara. For details about this event please contact your club president. I encourage each of

you to attend DCON because you deserve it! It will change your life, or at least give you a weekend full of inspiring

and wonderful moments.

Secondly, we have an abundance of service opportuni-

ties coming up!! Fundraisers, volunteering, and everything in between. Stay active in your clubs and surely your ef-

forts will pay off.

I am excited to announce that we will be having a Re-gion 6 Banquet to celebrate YOU – the members. At this

banquet, we will have: awards, superlatives, inspirational moments, as well as a celebration of our division. This

event will focus on success and everything that we have done throughout the year. Please attend with all of your

Key Club friends for a wonderful time.

With that said, I will be looking forward to seeing many

of you in the next few months as I finish my visitations. If you have anything that you want to contribute to the divi-

sion, or to me personally – please feel free to email me at any point in time.

I love you, Yetis! -Alyssa

What is a Polar Plunge?

The 'plunge' happens when all the plungers race into (and then frolic in) the Lake Tahoe. Plungers set their own personal goals of how deep to go and how long they want to stay in (within the limits estab-

lished by the EMS divers). Some plungers only get their ankles wet; others stay in and play for a while and our 'chickens' don't get wet at all!

Who can plunge? Anyone with a little guts and a warm heart wanting to support Special Olympics athletes is welcome to

participate. Participants have included seven-year-olds to 70-year-olds, police officers, firefighters, company teams, high school clubs, fraternities and everyone in between. (If you are under 18. your parent or guardian will need to sign your waiver form and be sure and bring it with you.)

For the more hesitant souls, you can still do your part! Register as a Chicken and raise funds,

then watch the plunge from the sidelines and take pride in knowing that while you might be a chicken, you are still brave enough to raise funds for Special Olympics!

Are Plungers crazy to do this? It helps! But remember, our Plungers are doing this to benefit Special Olympics Northern California &

Nevada athletes. If you just don’t think you’ll be able to do it, then give generously when a plunger asks for your donation - and be sure to show up and cheer them on.

What's the minimum donation required? Everyone is asked to raise a minimum of $125. If you raise the minimum you will receive a Polar Plunge

Hooded Sweatshirt and freeadmittance to the post-plunge party. Additional incentive levels of $300, $600, $1,000 and $2,500 are available so the more you raise the more you can earn.

Be a Double Dipper if you Dare! Raise a total of $10,000 by participating in one of the first six plunges and the South Lake Tahoe Plunge

on March 17th and you'll get free housing at the Monte Bleu Resort in South Lake Tahoe, official Plunge

Housing and site of the post party.

Working together for stronger, healthier babies

Since our beginning, volunteers have led the March of Dimes

to more than 70 years of success. Our volunteer

leaders bring experience and passion to helping moms and

babies in their communities and across the nation. And

our ambassadors help create awareness about our mission.

Team youth provides leadership opportunities

for students and advisors of all ages. The students get

involved by creating awareness, raising money and to

speaking out for moms and babies. They're also provided

with opportunities to learn and to teach each other about

healthy lifestyle choices.

In local communities across the country, we're helping

moms take charge of their health, and supporting fami-

lies when something goes wrong. The March of Dimes also

acts globally: sharing best practices in perinatal health and

helping improve birth outcomes where the needs are the

most urgent.

Colter Ruttenbur was our Member of the Month for December- he showed

great enthusiasm and came to all meetings, as well as suggested new service

projects; congrats Colter and keep up the good work. Keeping DCON in the

front of our minds, we are planning some fundraisers. We are planning on

selling See’s Candy Bars for Valentine’s Day, a movie night/ silent auction (all

items will be donated), and asking local business for donations. In the mist of

everything our board is also planning a Member Bonding Day, similar to the

Division Officer Bonding. We are very excited for our future events!

Edward C. Reed High School During the holiday season, we participat-

ed in a bunch of events that helped spread the holiday and key club spirit.

Our dedicated Key Club members took an initiative to start their own project of sell-ing Santa Grams! It was really inspiration-

al for the club to see our fellow Key Club-bers take charge. They made the gift con-

tainers, cookies, and cake bites and deliv-ered them to each individual classroom

from the orders they had collected. I could definitely tell they put a lot of effort and time into this project to help raise funds.

And it was awesome watching them stand there, advertising their hard work, the

Santa Grams were so pretty alongside our


On to another event, Reed Key Club al-

so participated in Adopt-a-Family in which we had a successful time collecting food

through caroling around our neighbor-hood. Just from going to roughly 30 hous-es we collected a ton of food that fed our

family well, alongside the generous dona-tions from Round Table. The wait was un-

bearable, we had the address to the wrong house! But in the end, it was really touching and rewarding to see the family

and to hand them the food and gifts we had gotten them. The rest of the left over

food got donated to the Salvation Army.

During our Winter Break, our club did not falter in keeping up with the volun-

teering spirit. We participated at the Food Bank, the annual Christmas Tree Recycling

near our school, and the Sierra Nevada Classics Wrestling Tournament! And that's pretty much it, we had a wonderful time

this holiday season!
