Key Club 2009

Key Club

Meetings take place every other Friday. After first semester, Key Club will only meet in the mornings, at 7:10.

When members reach 50 hours of community service, they receive a pin and certificate. In order to obtain 50 hours, members participate in many different activities, including charity runs/walks, helping at church, or helping at elementary schools.

Members can also collect pop tabs or labels. Every 50 pop tabs counts as one hour. Members need 10 Best Choice labels, Campbell’s labels, and/or Box Tops for Education for one hour.

Students join Key Club for the chance to serve the community, and to fill requirements for other classes. Sophomore Marcus Paccapaniccia joined because he is interested in enrolling for the International Baccalaureate program.

“For IB you have to get service hours,” Paccapaniccia said, “and good practice to get used to getting community service hours ahead of time.”

Sponsor Carolyn LaFever finds Key Club useful in many different aspects.

“It’s a good opportunity for community service,” LaFever said. “It looks good on college applications, and it’s fun.”
