  • Service Spotlight!!NFAs Autism Walk! Minisinks Car Show

    On Saturday, May 14th,over two hundred adults and children came to the Newburgh Free

    Academy (NFA) Main Campus Track to take part in the NFA Key Club's 4th annual Walk for

    Autism Speaks. They raised $2,463 and all the proceeds went to Autism Speaks, a not-for-profit

    global organization devoted to increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders and

    funding research towards autism science programs. Congrats to Supriya Makam,

    chairperson of the Key Club's Walk for Autism Speaks Committee, and NFA Key Club for an

    amazing event!

    Minisinks Car Show was a great event to honor teacher Christopher Corwin, who passed away

    earlier this year to a car accident. Key Club help volunteer the whole event which included a Car

    Show, raffles, food, music, and games. The event had around 250 vehicles and raised over $10,000 for the newly founded Chris Corwin Scholarship Fund. What an amazing event to honor a Warrior teacher! Congrats to all of the Minisink staff and Minisink

    Key Club for helping out for a great event!

  • Service Spotlight!!Chesters Color RunEveryone had such an amazing time at the Hearts of Hope Color Run set up by Wasil and the Chester Key Club! It was so great to see everyone having such a great time while supporting such an amazing cause. I hope more Key Clubs around the area host more events like this in the future!

    The color run was so much fun! Im glad I got to take part and help out at the event. I know this was extremely special for Wasil Ahmed to organize. Even though I wasn't the one running, I still had a blast. And trust me, I had color in my hair for days!

  • Service Spotlight!!Monticellos Litter Pluck Event!In conjunction with the recent Annual Litter Pluck

    Event, the Monticello High School Key Club joined Jane Sorensen, Kiwanis Club President/Key Club

    Co-Advisor, and Alan Sorensen, County Legislator, in a joint effort to clean up State Route 42 in

    Monticello from Stewart's Shop to the Monticello High School entrance. During the 2-hour Spring

    litter pluck, the team did a great job sprucing up the area by collecting enough roadside debris to fill

    seven large trash bags. Good Job Monticello on an a great event!

  • Key Club in the SummerFinals are finished. Classes are done. When that bell rings, you can feel the excitement. Schools

    out for the summer.During summer break, many Key Clubbers head to the beach, the park or even the mall. Theyre having fun, of course, but theyre also providing good ol Key Club service. Warmer weather lets you plan many serviced projects or fun activities that involve getting out and enjoying Mother Nature. Volunteer your club to paint walls, fix things, plant flowers, pick up trash or whatever might need to be done at a community center or even your school! A non-service project activity to do can be anything! Barbecues or pool parties allow for good times and bonding between members.

    Awesome Summer activity!

  • District Project: Icing SmilesI am very excited to announce the 2016-

    2017 District Project is Icing Smiles! This organization works to create special memories by making unique custom

    celebration cakes for sick children. Any childhood illness changes the life for a

    family, changing experiences like playdates and picnics to hospital visits and medicine. These cakes not only help kids escape to normal childhood experiences

    cause to specifically advocate. This year District Governor Matt Garber as chosen the project called "Voices for the Blind" which is all about empowering the blind

    and visually impaired children by promoting education, leadership, and

    confidence. We hope to help this amazing cause in any way possible, so if you have

    any ideas please share them!
