DEXTER - The Dexter Key Club had another very successful year. The Key Club year runs April to April, so we started our new year on April 12th, upon returning from the 61st annual New England District Convention in Springfield, Mass.
This year the Key Club had 61 members, down three from last year but still enough to place in the Large Club Division (60-85 members).
This year the club had 302 activities, including meetings, service projects, fundraisers, etc. This was down slightly from last year when we had 330 activities. Service projects were 147, up from last year’s 132.
We had 37 regular meetings compared to 39 last year, and we had 4,046.5 service hours, which was the first time we have ever passed the 4.000 mark.
Dexter Key Club also had 31 fundraisers or donations, down from 38, which raised $13,512.98. Our total giving for the year was down about $1,000 from last year. Our largest fundraiser was Welcome to My Home, which raised $3,460.00.
The club had 45 interclubs, the most ever, when we send four members to another Kiwanis, Circle K or Key Club meeting. Also, 223 Key Club members visited Kiwanis clubs during the year, which is about the same as last year.
Dexter Key Club also recycles ink cartridges, cell phones and aluminum can tabs. This past year we recycled 194 ink cartridges and 93 cell phones, down some from last year.
However, we have collected 65 gallons of aluminum can tabs for Shriner Hospitals, which is about 10 gallons more than the last two years.
All in all, 2009-2010 was a very successful year. The Dexter Key Club would like to thank all those who helped to make this possible by supporting us.
