Brianna Kern, Pres. of Key Club, said “We are a group of teenagers helping better our community to the best of our ability.

Key Club is in a coalition with Kiwanis Club, which sponsors the program providing volunteers, program materials and financial support. In addition to what it’s all about, there are many upcoming events such as the Blood Drive. It is on November 16th all throughout the day and from 2:00pm to 3:30pm.  It is so important to donate blood. Due to a crisis in New York State, blood shortage is increasingly demanded in organ transplants to heart surgeries, today’s advanced medical care relies on blood transfusions. When one person donates a unit of blood, it can be separated into individual components to save multiple lives. Blood donors help meet the daily transfusion needs of cancer and surgery patients, accident and burn victims, newborns and mothers delivering babies, AIDS and sickle cell anemia patients, and many more.

Our most recent event was Safe Halloween.  The theme was Monster’s Inc. and the event was held on Oct. 26. Students decorated and gave candy to the kids who attended.  Some of the Key Club members even dressed in costume. The Team Nicole Challenge was active for two months and finished at the end of October.  The challenge was to help to raise money and support the Seaman family. Students and teachers participated by doing ten push ups and/or donating five dollars.  Videos were uploaded on social media. You can check out those videos at #teamnicole. Kiwanis World Reading Day was on October 27 at the Lindenhurst Memorial Library. Each Key club Member read to the children that attended from 10:30 – 11:30 am.  All of the events were a success! Through the years, Key Club has been given fairly amount of awards. Their most recent awards were Early Bird Dues Recognition and Perfect Paperwork Award, both presented to our club for the Leadership Training Conference, which occurred on March 31- April 2, 2017 in Albany, New York. It is exciting to see our club recognized for its growth and success in the organization. We look forward to help others and achieve acts of service in the community.
