November 2015 K-T Key


Hey guys! This is Julie, your Service Projects Chair! This is the 3rd K-T Key I have released this year. If you still don’t quite know what a “K-T Key” is, it is essentially the district newsletter. Unlike the newsletters that your LTG’s send out that only pertain to the division, the K-T pertains to the WHOLE division!

In case you missed the other two, feel free to go on to see the other 2! I will be posting all the K-T Keys on the K-T website as well as issuu so feel free to choose whichever is easier for you! Thank you guys for all the support and service you provide to your communities and hope you guys have a great holiday and end of the year!!!

Here’s what’s in this issue:

-Introductions from officers!
-District Project: Ronald McDonald House
-Co-Sponsor & Vision Partner
-Preferred Charities
-Dollywood Recap
-School Service Spotlight
-ICON Preview

The K-T District Board: Servant Leaders


When Key Clubbers get together, service is never far from their mind. The K-T District Board members are no different.

Last weekend, your K-T District leadership met at the site of the 2016 District Convention: the Cool Springs Marriott in Franklin, Tennessee. Although the purpose for the winter board meeting is to make plans for activities such as divisional spring rallies, convention workshops, and convention assignments, the K-T District Board took the opportunity to serve its community. Each board member brought a stuffed animal to donate to the Ronald McDonald House (RMH) in Nashville, Tennessee. As a board, they presented the toys to the RMH in Nashville. Below is a note that the board received from the Nashville RMH:

Dear Friends,
On behalf of the staff and families of the Nashville Ronald McDonald House, I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your donation of stuffed animals.  It was such a thoughtful gesture for our house and families!  With your continued support, we can continue to provide a “home away from home” for so many people who are caring for their critically ill child.
The general community must be credited with providing the major support of our House.  Because of this support, the Ronald McDonald House served as a “home away from home” for 574 families in 2014, averaging an 18-night stay.  Coping with a seriously ill child can be one of the most difficult and painful experiences a family may ever face.  For families having to travel long distances to hospitals for their child’s medical treatment, the strain is even more severe.  Your support provides a great alternative to families who otherwise might have to pay a large amount for a motel or perhaps sleep in a hospital waiting room, or even their car.
Thank you for understanding the importance of providing a place those families with seriously ill children can call “home for a while.”

Thank you so much for the wonderful truck load of supplies for our house! For the much needed ladder and the gift cards are a blessing! Thank you for caring!

2015 K-T Fall Rally: Thank You!



Thanks to all the Key Club members, advisors, Kiwanians, parents, and other chaperones who attended the Fall Rally this past weekend at Dollywood. It was also great to have members of the Nolachuckey Builders Club attend the rally.

It was great seeing everyone at the rally! I hope you had a great time, and that you returned home with enthusiasm that you will share with your entire club.

Best wishes for a successful year of Key Club service.
