KEY CLUB WEEK
Key Club Week gives you the opportunity to show your community what Key Club is truly about: service. Each day places an emphasis on service, to promote Key Club within our homes, schools and communities and to make Key Club a household name.Do your part to make sure Key Club Week—Nov. 4-8, 2013—starts Kiwanis Family Month with a bang. Join other Key Clubs from around the world by following the suggestions below. Check out the Key Club Week Manual for more ideas for each day.
MONDAY, NOV. 4
Show your K in every way—Show people what Key Club is all about! Spread the word by wearing Key Club gear and publicizing Key Club Week in local stores, your school Web site, community newspapers—even on the radio. Officially announce Key Club Week in your community with a proclamation and refer to the Key Club public relations manual to get great tips on how to publicize Key Club in your community.
TUESDAY, NOV. 5
Kudos to the Key players—Personally thank all the Key Club supporters you know—teachers, advisors and other Key players. Write thank-you notes, host an appreciation dinner or do something uniquely your own style to recognize the contributions of these special people.
WEDNESDAY, NOV. 6
Connect the Ks—Key Club is the largest high school service organization in the world and is a member of the Kiwanis family. Celebrate the entire family of Kiwanis by getting the whole gang involved. Connect with local Kiwanis, Circle K International, Builders, Kiwanis Kids or Aktion clubs and team up for a joint service project.THURSDAY, NOV. 7
Bring a friend to Key Club—More members = more service. Increasing the amount of service Key Club performs increases the impact Key Club has on the world. Bring a friend, or two, or more to your next Key Club meeting. Download recruitment resources.
FRIDAY, NOV. 8
Your way—This is your club’s chance to do its own thing and make its mark. Pick a project, plan a recruitment party or combine activities from the other Key Club Week days. Whatever idea you choose, take it and run with it.
Use these additional resources to increase the K during this special week in November.November 8, 2013Dear Kiwanians, August, 2013Just over six months ago evil stuck. As promised, we are now embarking on a long- term plan to make a difference. Together with Kiwanis International, we are founding a new youth outreach program. We are building on the strength of the past, modifying and refining it. On November 8, 2013, we will launch the first ever “Kiwanis Key Leader Forum”. With support from the Western Connecticut State University and its Alumni Association along with other partners, we are inviting student leaders from ten of the area high schools, including Newtown High, to participate in this program that is designed to make a difference by harnessing and giving direction to the awesome power of high school student leaders.It is the goal of the Forum and the subsequent follow-up sessions at each high school, to provide leadership training and direction to students. The student leaders will be charged with returning to their schools with plans they have devised during the forum to make their school a healthier, kinder and more civil environment. We hope to make this an annual event with each year building on the growth of the year before.We already have interest in replicating the Kiwanis Key Leader Forum in Westfield Massachusetts. With Kiwanis International’s help, our hope is that this effort will grow nationally and worldwide to make a positive difference in school environments everywhere. We honor the memory of those who died at Sandy Hook Elementary School by motivating and facilitating students to make a real difference within their community.We need your support. We are reaching out to Kiwanians for donations. Your donations will provide resources to not only launch this initiative, but to continue as a leader in making a difference. We hope you recognize that this sound approach will be beneficial to the children and one that you will support. We need your donations today to help our kids tomorrow. Please send your donations to:Kiwanis Foundation of Greater Danbury, Inc.PO Box 372Danbury, CT 06813-0372Please write Forum in the memo line and your donation will be earmarked accordingly.Yours in serving the children,Kiwanis Club Foundation of Greater Danbury, Inc. - a 501 (c ) (3) charityNovember 9, 2013
