DEXTER - Dexter Key Club continues to remain busy following Key Club Week. On Friday, Nov. 7 the Key Club went to Bud's Shop N' Save in Dexter and collected 100 boxes of cereal from 1:15-5:30 to kick-off our annual November cereal drive. Last year, we collected 214 boxes for the local food cupboard and we hope to break that this year. Friday's effort gave us quite a boost.
On Monday, Nov. 10, five members of the Key Club attended the Terrific Kids awards ceremony at the Dexter Primary School and helped hand out awards to the six third graders receiving awards. After school four Key Club members attended the first K-Kids meeting in Dexter with 53 K-Kids in attendance. the K-Kids made cards for the veterans, collected their UNICEF boxes and heard about the Key Clubs cereal drive.
On Veterans Day. the Key Club went to Dover-Foxcroft Kiwanis in the morning to attend their meeting with an interclub of four members and their advisor. In the evening, we held our meeting at 6:00 in the cafeteria at the high school with Lt. Governor Jackson McLaughlan of Greenville Key Club attending to update the club on New England District news. He also brought along John Muzzy the New England District Treasurer from the Greenville club and two members of the PCHS Key Club also attended our meeting.
On Wednesday, six Key Club members attended the teachers' meeting after school to update the staff on recycling. This week (Nov.8-15) is Maine Recycles Week. The ten minute presentation helped to educate the staff on what needs to be done to improve the recycling effort in the school. In the evening, the Key Club set up three tables in the cafeteria for the annual high school open house. The club set up our Alex's Lemonade Stand and sold lemonade to benefit children with cancer. We also sold Children of Peace merchandise and we had a display of cell phones, ink cartridges and can tabs that we collect for recycling. We also collected boxes of cereal for our cereal drive.
On Tuesday, Cianbro Corporation donated 182 old cell phones to the club to recycle. The Dexter Key Club recycles these phones and we are paid cash for the phones that we use in our charity work with donations to charitable causes. The Dexter Redemption Center also just donated five gallons of can tabs for Shriner Hospitals. The Dexter Key Club is very appreciative to Cianbro and the Redemption Center for their efforts.
Anyone wishing to donate a box of cereal can drop a box off at the high school through Nov. 30."This content originally appeared as a copyrighted article in the SVWeekly.com and is used here with permission."
