DEXTER - On Friday the 13th school closed at Dexter for the summer, but Dexter Key Club is still active. On Saturday at an early time of 5:30 a.m., 15 Key Clubbers showed up at the Knights of Columbus Hall for the Dexter Sunrise Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast. For the second year in a row the Dexter Kiwanians partnered with the Knights of Columbus putting on the Pancake Breakfast, where they have raised almost $800! The Key Clubbers helped set up for the breakfast, serve the food and clear tables. We also had a Key Club Information table set up.
Also, on Saturday, seven Key Clubbers along with advisor Rick Whitney traveled to the Seeds of Peace Camp in Otisfield, to clean up the camp for the summer's opening. Key Clubbers carried canoes, cleaned bunk houses, and set up lawn furniture. The crew worked from about 9:30 a.m.-2:00 p.m. From the Seeds of Peace Camp, they went to Camp Sunshine's grand opening. Camp Sunshine is a camp for children with terminal illnesses. The New England District Kiwanis and Key Clubs are a huge financial support for Camp Sunshine. Rebecca Fick will be volunteering at Camp Sunshine this summer for a week. Also, on Saturday, Key Clubber Callie Theodore attended the open house for Camp CaPella in Dedham. Theodore will be volunteering there this summer; as a coach for kayaking with ages 5-13. Also she will be working with a group of autistic children.
Upcoming events are as follows: On Saturday, June 21, we are holding a car wash at Toots from 9 a.m. to noon to raise money for International Convention in Denver. Later that day, we will be having our end of the year cookout at President Megan Crane's house until 5:00. Our Key Club is planning "A Night at the Museum" fundraiser in July at the Grist Mill. More to come on that!
On Wednesday, June 11, the Shriners picked up can tabs from the Key Club at Dexter High School. This year, the Key Club collected a 55 gallon jug of can tabs which the Shriners said was worth about $2,000 to their hospital. The can tabs collected here go to the Shriners’ Hospital in Springfield, Mass.
My name is Callie Theodore and I am working on my third week at the Key Club Corner for the Dexter Key Club. I just finished my freshmen year, my first year of Key Club, also my first year of Student Council.
