We had 16 members at our road trip to the North Fond du Lac Horace Mann Key Club for our Annual Appreciation Breakfast. Former member Rich Traxinger joined us for breakfast and to check out how everyone was doing. There was no 50/50 Raffle drawing this week. Next week’s drawing will have 39 cards, including seven pay cards, and a pot of at least $160.
North Fond du Lac High School Key Club
Jean Hintze, NFDL Horace Mann Key Club Advisor, and a number of NFDL Key Clubbers welcomed us on Monday morning for our Annual Appreciation Breakfast. No one should have gone away hungry as they provided a wonderful variety of bagels, breakfast sweets, various fruit offerings and juice and coffee. Jean turned the program over to the Key Clubbers and they led us in the Pledge of Allegiance and the Key Club Creed. The current officers then introduced next year’s list of officers. They noted that they had 62 members this year and raised almost $503 from five different fund raisers. They also detailed all of the activities/money donated back to the community. They donated $2,319 back to a number of causes in addition to a total of over 2,080 hours of volunteer time to a long list of causes/agencies. The list included things such as Friendship Learning Center Halloween Party, NFDL Optimist Pancake Breakfast, Friendship Learning Center Tutoring, Autism Child Care and many, many more. The group then talked about a special project (Riley’s Project) that provided household/personal care items to needy families. The NFDL Key Club also had another banner year of Excellence Award Winners (Five Members) at this Spring’s DCON. The NFDL Key Club Scholarship Awardees; Riley Behnke, Shelby Demboski, Nicole Fox, Alexus Kraus and Elizabeth Redmond were introduced and gave a brief report of where they’re going to college and what they hope to study. And finally, the new officers unveiled their goals for next year; new volunteer venues, 10 Excellence Award Winners at DCON, Polar Plunge continued success and continue to collaborate with NHS and Student Council. GREAT JOB!!
