Hello, PNW Key Clubbers!

As our school year comes to an end, now is the perfect time to perform an act of service. Whether it is cleaning up a local park, fundraising for past District Projects, or supporting the 2022-2023 District Project, there are plenty of ways to stay engaged over the summer.

First, let’s talk about supporting past District Projects! One school in particular has been doing an amazing job with this, and they deserve more credit for their work – Coeur D’alene High School of Division 48. Coeur D’alene was able to recently donate a total of $1,360.28 to the Thirst Project, our immediate-past District Project! For those who may be unfamiliar, The Thirst Project, linked below, aims to provide access to safe, clean drinking water to all people in the world. Coeur d’Alene’s fundraising efforts help contribute to their goal of fundraising enough to support one well, about $12,000, over the past couple of years. If this doesn’t show the power of setting goals and sticking to them, then I’m not sure what does! Thank you Coeur d’Alene for your continued effort to support the Thirst Project.

With that, you can also consider supporting our 2022-2023 District Project. At the most recent District Board meeting (for which meeting notes will soon be released), Help End Hunger was officially approved to be the 2022-2023 PNW District Project. Read more about this District Project, and ways you can get involved, in the section below.

If you ever have any questions, ideas, concerns, or clubs to spotlight, please contact me at governor@pnwkeyclub. Until then, keep serving and stay connected!

Thirst Project

Help End Hunger is more than just a project. It’s a movement. Originally created with the intent of providing local relief to communities disproportionately affected by COVID-19, the continued plague of food insecurity has provided reason for this district project to be extended into the 2022-2023 term. This project provides meaningful and unique opportunities to get involved through multiple vehicles of service. Throughout the service year, Key Clubbers are especially encouraged to participate in service projects at their local food banks, through food packaging, food drives, and monetary donations. Becoming educated about local hunger issues will also be part of this year’s project.

Please see past resources from the 2021-2022 District Project Committee below at our Issuu page. They have published numerous resources, ranging from General Fundraising Guides to articles in past ESPRESSOs. A particular useful resource is their one pager, which I’ve linked below for your convenience. The time to get involved in the District Project is now!

We are pleased to report that nearly all Divisions have Lieutenant Governors now, and some for the first time in many years. This is all thanks to the help of the advisors and Key Clubbers that nominated eligible students. However, we still need your help! Lieutenant Governors are vital to the health of each Key Club division, and serve as the critical connection between the club and district levels. Clubs in divisions that have no Lieutenant Governors lack a consistent source of relevant updates, resources, and leadership.

The following divisions have Lieutenant Governor vacancies.

  • Division 9
  • Division 34
  • Division 42c
  • Division 52
  • Division 62
  • Division 74
  • Division 78

If you or anyone you know is from one of these divisions and is interested in serving as a Lieutenant Governor during the 2022-2023 year, please contact me at governor@pnwkeyclub.org or District Administrator Brian Egger at administrator@pnwkeyclub.org for more information. I can assure you that serving on the District Board is an incredible experience and will help you develop your leadership skills.
