DEXTER - On Friday May 30, the Key Club held an annual dress-up day for Cystic Fibrosis. Cystic Fibrosis is a very serious thing, it causes mucus to line the lungs causing breathing problems and other disorders. The fundraiser was held at Dexter Regional High School, we had students dress up in nice clothes and donate money if they wanted. If they donated, they got to sign a poster. We raised $238.60. That is the most money that benefited the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. They really appreciated that.
On Saturday May 31, 15 Key club members along with advisor Rick Whitney cleaned the Grist Mill Museum for the summer's opening. They cleaned the main display room, the kitchen display, barn area, and the automotive area. The members dusted, vacuumed, polished glass, and washed windows. The Key Club members worked hard on making the museum look nice. Also, on May 31, it was our advisor Mr. Whitney's birthday. As a birthday gift after cleaning the museum, we got him ice cream with candles and a bottle of his favorite diet coke.
On Monday June 2, we had our last K-Kid's meeting in Dexter. We gave them awards for participating in K-Kids, and we gave 15 kids some special Perfect Attendance awards. The kids "Jumped for Health" for the American Heart Association. The Dexter K-Kids raised $100, and with Garland K-Kids the total was just over $200. After that, before the meeting ended we gave them ice cream sundaes. They enjoyed that!
On Saturday June 7, we have a few diffrent things going on. Several Key Club members are traveling to Brewer for the Soap Box derby races. The Key Clubbers will help with what they can. We were called after no other Key Clubs could help out.
Coming up on Thursday June 5, 12 Key Club members are going to Garland school from 8:15-11:30 to help with the school's spring fair. We will help with refreshments, and mangaging the games and events.
For the month of May, we had 32 events and activities, we collected 20 ink cartridges, and 6 cell phones. Sixteen people donated can tabs for Shriner Hospitals (we have collected nearly 50 gallons this year!) Also we raised $160 for the Kiwanis International Foundation through skip-a-meal. Overall we had a good month!s"This content originally appeared as a copyrighted article in the SVWeekly.com and is used here with permission."
