Happy birthday, Key Club! Ninety-six years of service and the difference Key Club has made in the world are truly reasons to celebrate. As you celebrate the Key Club birthday and close out another school year and Key Club year, I encourage you to finish strong and lay the groundwork for a successful back-to-school, back-to-service year in the coming months.

As an important member of the Kiwanis family, Key Club has always represented the values we all honor in “serving the children of the world.” It is impossible to count the lives you have touched through Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF, the Thirst Project and The Eliminate Project.

I encourage you to become more involved in service to your community and the world during your remaining high school experience. Remember that local Kiwanians are eager to support and work with you on projects you develop. During the coming years, please continue your commitment to service, invite your friends to join you in service and choose to continue your service within the Kiwanis family.
