Fort Ann, Halloween Bake Sale

This year, Fort Ann wanted to find a way to do more for UNICEF. The best idea that we could come up with was a Halloween Bake Sale at our school's elementary and high school Halloween dances. The night before, everyone went to my house and started on the baking. In meetings at the beginning of the month of October, the club had researched cute treats and recipes of Halloween themed goodies that we could then sell. Once we had an idea of what we wanted to do, our club divided the ingredients among the members, who then brought it all to my house to cook. I had two kitchens going, and club members worked for up to 3 hours making amazing goodies. At the dance, we took shifts at the table, selling out all of our goodies. We raised over 86 dollars for UNICEF at our little bake sale. It was also really fun cooking with everyone and coming together to help out for UNICEF. Thank you Caitlin Roberts New York Division 15, Fort Ann Key Club President

Summer Nights

It has been a full year since I’ve joined Key Club and it has never been a dull moment. Every single event always had some unique aspect that made it enjoyable. It just feels great to help out others and it’s even better when you make friends at the same time. Key Club offers so many opportunities to just have fun and make other’s lives better, especially during the summer. The Summer Field Day at Chinatown is just one of the awesome events we had during summer. Shortly after the end of school, a field day was hosted in Chinatown, Manhattan on June. The field day was aimed at kids to promote a healthy lifestyle revolving around exercise 23rd and having fun. Of course to make the field day happen, volunteers are needed to help out and  who’s better at helping others than Key Club It was a very nice day to go out and play. There were many activities such as bowling, miniature golf, football, bean-bag races, basketball, etc. Not to mention, free food! It was very tiring work, especially in the sun. However, the smiles on the kids make it all worthwhile.

World Hepatitis Day

July 28, 2013 was World Hepatitis Day, and many volunteers were stationed around the 5 boroughs of New York City raising awareness of Hepatitis B and C. Members of both Bronx Science Key Club and Stuyvesant Key Club could be found in Times Square spreading the news about Hepatitis. The morning was spent carrying signs with information about how widespread the virus is, distributing pamphlets encouraging people to be informed, and answering any questions people had about being tested. Along with Division 11 Executive Assistant Aaron Cheung and Stuyvesant Key Club Webmaster Danny Qiu, I managed to draw the attention of quite a few people, from riders on a tour bus to a person dressed as Elmo from Sesame Street. Afterwards, the various volunteers stationed around the city converged on the steps of Duffy Square for a freeze mob in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record that the event set last year for having over 12,000 people all over the world mimic the three wise monkeys’ “See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil” poses. In our location alone, around 150 people had participated in the freeze mob. Raising awareness of diseases? Just another day for a Key Clubber.
