DEXTER - The Dexter High School Key Club has two major events this month. In less than a week, five Key Club members will be traveling with advisor, Mr. Whitney, to Denver, Colorado, and the International Key Club Convention. It has been two years since the club has attended an international convention in Boston, and none of the members attending have ever been to an internaitonal convention, or ICON for short.
We will be flying out of Boston on the morning of the 9th and we return on July 14th. Attending with Mr. Whitney will be, President, Megan Crane, Treasurer, Rebecca Warren, Youth Coordinator Katie Eastman, Sophomore Director Jake Sherburne and sv editor Callie Theodore.
There are eighty individuals from New England traveling together, with two from Greenville and three from Messalonski traveling with Dexter. ICON gives the Dexter Club a unique opportunity to network with other clubs around the country and world. ICON also features an amazing Service Fair, where we will be able to learn about new fundraising techniques and programs.
The convention is also featuring a walk for March of Dimes , one of our Key Charities. Several thousand Key Clubbers from around the world will be there to share their experiences with everyone. There are three large General Sessions that feature motivational speakers. Two of our members will also attend a House of Delegates to elect new Key Club officers for Key Club International next year. Needless to say, we are all looking forward to the experience. The Club is still a few hundred dollars short on money to attend, so if any of our readers would like to make a contribution, please feel free to send a check to ; Dexter High School Key Club, 12 Abbott Hill Road, Dexter, Me. 04930
The other major event for July is our "Night at the Museum" fundraiser at the Grist Mill Museum scheduled for Thursday, July 24th. The event will be from 5:30-9:00 and Key Club members will be giving tours of the Grist Mill and the collection. The museum willl donate the nights donations to the club and a bake sale will be held.
The Key Club is also doing a summer 50/50 raffle to be drawn off on Wild West Weekend. There will be more on the "Night At the Museum " next weeks column.
The Key Club continues to collect can tabs for Shriners Hospitals as well as cell phones and ink cartridges for recycling. In June the Key Club received eight cell phones, seven ink cartridges and 19 people donated can tabs for Shriners. Keep saving these items.
The Key Club will have a collection point at the "Night at the Museum" and items can be left at the Abbott Museum and Grist Mill Museum during regular hours. "This content originally appeared as a copyrighted article in the SVWeekly.com and is used here with permission."
