Division 25C Key Clubbers,
Hope you had a magnificent, service filled winter break that was used to power up for the next few months! From now until District Convention is when Key Club gets down to the nitty gritty, preparing all of our big service projects, preparing for DCON May 10-14th through all of the awards things that need to be turned in by the 1st of April, fundraisers, elections, training of new officers and keeping the members motivated to do more service. We all just need to take a deep breathe and use some time management. This is going to be a very important aspect because while you might not want to be filling out all of this paperwork or spend that extra hour working on your election speech it will all pay off in the end two or three fold. Moreover, lets gear up and tackle not only these problems head on but those of the community.

Yours In Service,

416 Babies and Counting!
Our division did an amazing job these past few months on Eliminating Maternal/Neonatal Tetanus through the Eliminate Project. We ended up raising a total of $748.85 as a division. All of the clubs played a key role in raising this money and saving the lives of these mothers and babies. In addition, many clubs raised additional money through Trick or Treat for UNICEF which amounted to thousands of dollars. While a heady congratulations is in store it’s time for all of us to shift our efforts to Children’s Miracle Network in our winter service focus.

OUR NEXT DCM IS TBD BY NEXT WEEK

We’re the Mighty Flamingos Alright!
Time Management & Organization
Well Jane has school and work and college applications and sports and of course Key Club! How does she fit all of this into one day? The answer is time management! As we start 2012 there’s probably going to be quite a few additional duties you will have to do as apart of your Key Club duties such as training a new set of officers in the next few months, preparing your awards applications and items for District Convention [DCON] and doing extra fundraisers. One thing being a Lieutenant Governor has taught me is how to balance a millions things at once. New Years is normally the time when we make our resolutions which for a lot of the people is to get organized at home but why not make your resolution to get organized with Key Club and your other activities by utilizing things such as check lists, calendars, reminders on your phone or computers and any other way you see fit to organize your life. I know when I have a lot to do I set goals for each hour in order to get everything I want done. Organize yourself however you want! It’s not how you get organized but just that you do it. Also keep in mind that I am just a call away if the stress starts getting to you. I’m happy to help you in any way necessary!
