From September 29-October 1, Governor Dmitri Saberi and Administrator Brian Egger had the opportunity to visit Divisions 20i and 20m. On Friday evening, they went to a "Watch to Cure" event at a Drive-in Movie in Oak Harbor, raising funds for KCCP and interacting with members and officers from Division 20i. During the event, they also raised community awareness and involvement by including informational slides at the beginning of the movie and passing out flyers. On Saturday, there was a training rally for members and officers in both Divisions 20i and 20m, including an opening and closing session, training workshops, and a mega forum presentation on the District from Governor Dmitri. All proceeds went to KCCP, and they raised almost $300! Finally, after a dinner with the attendees, Dmitri and Brian accompanied Lieutenant Governor of Division 20i Michael Lym to Orcas Island Key Club to train them on the District. Thanks to all who came out for the visit!

— Kiwanis One Day —

Each year, Kiwanis and family clubs around the world join in a day of service. Kiwanis One Day currently is held on the fourth Saturday of October. In 2017, Kiwanis One Day will be observed on October 28. Here is a link to the Kiwanis information about Kiwanis One Day:

Kiwanis One Day is a great opportunity to bring together the Kiwanis family of clubs to focus on local community service. It’s an example of our belief that kids need Kiwanis–kids in the community need Kiwanis to provide programs and services no longer available because of school and municipal budget constraints, and kids who want to be in youth clubs need Kiwanis club members as mentors to help them thrive, prosper and grow.
 If you have any questions, please email or contact your Lieutenant Governor. Don’t forget to hashtag your photos #KiwanisOneDay and #PNWKFAM!

 — Membership Campaign —

A new school year equals a new generation of freshmen to recruit into Key Club! Fortunately, the Membership Growth & Reactivation Committee has created the Membership Campaign for our district and it started September 16! In order for the Pacific Northwest District to reach our membership goal of 13,500 members by DCON, the MGRC Committee has released a plethora of promotional materials for clubs to start off the school year. We are pushing for each club and ultimately, division, to exceed their provided goal. The first three divisions who reach their membership goal will be awarded an incentive of pizza, ice cream, or donuts of your choice provided at a DCM. During DCON 2018, clubs and divisions that exceed their goal will be invited to the Governor’s Reception. Also, clubs and divisions will be recognized on the district’s social media platforms and future bi-weekly email updates for surpassing their provided membership goal.

— KCCP Week —

The PNW is implementing a new Fall Fundraising Campaign called KCCP Week! This week will consist of different activities throughout the week of  October 2 through October 6 that clubs and members will partake in to advocate and fundraise for KCCP. 

MONDAY (OCT 2): WEBINAR Join Andrew Baek, Jane Tang, and Danielle Bae in a Fundraising Webinar, which will consist of fundraising ideas, tips and tricks for fundraising, a deeper explanation of KCCP, and a Q&A session. 

TUESDAY (OCTOBER 3): SOCIAL MEDIA PLEDGE DAY On this day, we will provide you an overlay and every individual will pledge to fundraise a certain amount of money for KCCP.

WEDNESDAY (OCTOBER 4): SCHOOL OUTREACH This is the day where we will communicate the missions of KCCP to our schools and ask for donations from our peers. Each club board is expected to plan and execute how they will reach out to their educational communities and how they will involve their members. 

THURSDAY (OCTOBER 5): SHARE YOUR STORY This day will be a day full of impact: the PNW Districts Projects committee will work with the PNW Key Club Blog (or PLOG) to release a handful of stories about KCCP. 

FRIDAY (OCTOBER 6) COMMUNITY DAY On this day, your Lt. G.s will be planning a fundraiser for your division that involves outreaching to the community.
