Key Club has a week long event to recruit new members.
Key Club showed off its pride by having its annual Key Club Week from Monday, November 4 to Friday, November 8. The week long event comprised of many different activities to publicize Key Club.
“[Key Club Week] raises Key Club spirit. It introduces what Key Club is like and hypes up the spirit of the school year,” Key Club President Chloris Li (11) said.
On Monday, many students sported Key Club sweatshirts and shirts, kicking off the Key Club Week with high spirits.
But, American High School’s Key Club was not the only club that took part in the event.
“Key Club Week is actually an international event,” Li said. “Key Clubs all over the world participated in the event.”
Key Clubs around the globe came up with the themes for each day to promote Key Club’s diversity and involvement within the community.
“Key Club Week was a good way to celebrate the club’s achievements,” senior Roger Lee said. “Key Club is dependent on its members and having this week long event was a good way to recruit new members and boast about its achievements.”
Key Club is mainly popular because it offers many service learning opportunities that students can participate in to fulfill their forty hour requirement to graduate.
“Having this week would also lead to more members, more services, and more people to fulfill these services,” Lee said.
This promotional week also provided a service learning opportunity for students. On Wednesday after school, volunteers came in to package goody bags that were going to be gifts to the teachers around campus. It was a way for students and Key Club to show their appreciation to teachers on campus.
The event ended on Friday with a potluck at the Public Relations Coordinator Jacky Tsang’s (10) house.
“At the potluck, we got to meet and bond with other Key Club members. People brought food and it was a lot of fun!” sophomore Christina Ho said.
