he first grading period has ended and Key Club officials are excited for the new school year, as they have many fun events planned for the future.
Key Club is an independent international community service club that provides events for members to contribute to and give back to the community.
“Key Club is a great club filled with spirit and integrity,” sophomore Samantha Sung, Key Club’s Project Chair, said.
The club is based on four key values, president Shannon Cheung said.
“[The values] are instilled into all the Key Club members: building character, leadership skills, caring and inclusiveness,” Cheung said.
These values are practiced at various club events. A major event that will take place soon is Fall Rally North, Cheung said.
“[At the event] Key Clubbers from all over Northern California come to celebrate one of our preferred causes, which is the pediatric trauma program,” Cheung said.
Another upcoming event is the firefighter pancake breakfast at Fire Station Two on Wolfe Road, Cheung said. The money raised at the event will go to victims of fires.
Besides volunteering, Key Club also follows causes such as the Pediatric Trauma program and the Eliminate Project.
The Eliminate Project is a collaboration between Kiwanis International and UNICEF to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus.
“I am really excited for Key Club this year,“ junior and Vice President Chianti’s Chile said. “Especially building and expanding Key Club for more people to join and help the community.”
