Los Gatos Key Club has been doing its best to keep Bay Area Trails clean. Recently, we have been participating in trail cleanup events at the Guadalupe River Trail. Prior to COVID-19 stay-at-home orders, we hosted monthly trail cleanup events at the Los Gatos Creek Trail. Pictured on the left are Los Gatos Key Club and Kiwanis members cleaning up the Los Gatos Creek Trail.
At DCMs, short for Divisional Council Meetings, we get together with the other clubs in Division 12 West to report our most recent events and what we have planned to our Lieutenant Governor, Lion. DCMs happen each month of the year. At DCMs, you can expect some fun ice breakers, spirit cheers, and much more.
KEY TO LEADERSHIP WEBINAR
Recently, we held one of our biggest projects of the new term: The KEY to Leadership Webinar. Each board member presented to fourth and fifth graders about the essential traits for leaders. We also did our leadership challenge, in which we had the kids brainstorm and plan a service project. Lastly, we played a game of Kahoot to test the kids on their leadership knowledge.
WE GOT THIS LG!
COVID-19 has been the source of a lot of uncertainty recently. In order to show the Los Gatos citizens that we are here for them, and that there are brighter days ahead of us, we put up posters across the town of Los Gatos letting everyone know, "We got this."
HOME SWEET HOME
During a pandemic, the work of frontline medical professionals is key to keeping a safe community. This is why we wanted to show our support for the nurses protecting our elders at The Terraces and The Creeks. We created cards and donated donuts to nurses at the old folks homes to show our appreciation for their hard work.
SECOND HARVEST FOOD BANK
Coronavirus related health issues makes it dangerous to come into close proximity with other members of the community who could unknowingly be carriers of COVID-19. This makes it hard for at-risk citizens to complete necessary errands such as grocery shopping. In order to help feed the community, Los Gatos Key Clubbers volunteered at the Second Harvest Food Bank. Key Clubbers helped the SHFB sort, distribute, and deliver food across the Bay Area to those who need it most.
Key Clubbers volunteer at this event hosted by Kiwanis every May, which is a day long event that enables kids who are challenged or have special needs to compete in sports and other games and events.
Key Clubbers help the Kiwanis Club of Los Gatos put on a fun Easter egg hunt and other Easter activities to help kids enjoy the holiday!
Regional Training Conference
This event, hosted every September with Key Clubbers from Region 9 and 17, is an overnight event where Key Clubbers bond over the spirit of service and leadership in the community. While the event is traditionally hosted at a camp, this year, it will be fully virtual.
Key Club Training Conference
Hosted every June, this event brings together Key Clubbers from all over Region 17 to participate in workshops that include critical information on officer duties and overall Key Club spirit.
Fall Rally North
This massive event, bringing together 1000s of Key Clubbers from across Northern California to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom every October, is a celebration of Key Club and its efforts towards the Pediatric Trauma Program!
