Old Business
a. Articles
You get one hour per article. Feel free to write about any recent services or events. Fellow key clubbers within our entire division will get to read them (pretty cool huh?) Don't forget grammar/spellcheck! After you're done, send it to Lisa at and to our LTG at

b. Aids Walk & College Night
Thank you guys so much for coming! If you went to one of or both of these events, tell Elaine after next meeting to get your hours because we know many of our key clubbers did not get a chance to sign in at these events.
