Around 15 students showed up for the first meeting. During the meeting Ms. Roy, Key Club sponsor, introduced what Key Club is all about and handed out ‘Trick-or-Treat For Unicef’ boxes for students to begin collecting change in. Key Club is a community service club, some of the service projects they will be involved in are bell ringing for the Salvation Army, volunteering at soup kitchens, volunteering at Hillcrest Thrift Shop and other places.
The club started later in the year because a sponsor could not be found until Ms. Roy took on the job. Since Ms. Roy has never been in charge of Key Club she is still learning what else is involved in running the club.
The club will be voting for officers at the next meeting, October 16th. Anyone is allowed to run.
Students participate in Key Club for a variety of reasons like; community service hours, to have fun with friends, another club to put on college applications and more.
“It gives me a chance to help out around our community and that’s something I really enjoy,” said Kyleigh Keith, junior.
The club’s purpose is to find ways to volunteer in the community. If this is something you are interested in just come to the next meeting to learn more. To hear about upcoming Key Club events follow Ms. Roy on twitter @phssenorita.
