Hello PNW Key Clubbers,
It was so nice being able to meet more than 400 of you at Key Club Days over these past two weeks! Your spirit and engagement were infectious, and I am so appreciative that you took the opportunity to engage with the District. Whether you attended virtually or in-person, I hope you were able to make new connections and learn more about the resources we offer at PNW Key Club!
In addition to the learning we experienced and fun we had, we were able to contribute significantly to our District Project: Help End Hunger. Between our canned food drive and over $800 dollars in donations during our miracle minute, we were able to provide over 2,500 meals to families in need across the Pacific Northwest. This means we now have a grand total of 50,000 meals donated to families in need since April 1st! I’m proud to say that we are on track to meet our goal of 100,000 meals by DCON 2023. I have been impressed with all of the work each of you have done to Help End Hunger this service year.
As our clubs begin meeting regularly once again, now is the time to begin planning ahead! This includes, but is not limited to, Kiwanis One Day, recruitment season, club officer elections, running for Executive Office, and DCON 2023, which will be from March 31st-April 2nd in Seattle, WA. You must invest time now into planning these events to be sure they are as effective as possible. Please remember that you don’t have to plan these events on your own; PNW Key has created a variety of resources over the years to make your job easier. Whether it is our Kiwanis-family Resources that outline how to reach out to local Kiwanis Clubs, or our MGRC Guide on how to see membership growth in your club, we can provide you with tried-and-true tips to help your club grow.
To keep in-the-know about these resources, webinars, and opportunities, please follow us on Instagram (@pnwkeyclub) and continue to read Biweekly Updates! If you ever have any questions, ideas, or concerns, feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
