Key Club Celebrates Success at Club Day

Key Club, like many other Campolindo clubs, used various tactics to recruit members at Club Day.

Key Club leaders featured a call for community service and plenty of cupcakes and candy to recruit new members at a royal blue booth during Club Day at Campo on September 14.

“We got a lot of sign ups. People were really attracted by the cupcakes, and we made giant posters and little flyers” said Key Club President junior Nina Damiano. She estimates they recruited 40 new members at Club Day, which is 10 more than last year.

High school students have long recognized Key Club as a global, volunteer-based organization that’s focused on helping others.

Club members participate in district-wide events with students from throughout California, Nevada, and Hawaii, as well as division gatherings with volunteers from local schools.

The club’s most exciting event is the annual Fall Rally North (FRN), Damiano added. Held this year on Saturday, October 22, it includes a highly-discounted, day-long field trip to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom.

Damiano plans to advertise FRN prominently at Campo, hoping it will motivate more students to join and attend future meetings during lunch.

Junior Valerie Yarve joined Key Club because she “loves doing community service and helping the people around me flourish.”

Sophomore Chloe Cheung, the club’s fundraising coordinator, hopes to boost membership even further by organizing several fun events on campus and in the local community.
