Mended Little Hearts Fundraiser:
It’s that time of year again! As the district board is preparing for DCON, your club should be fundraising for Mended Little Hearts, the 2012-2013 Governor’s Project. To support your club in it’s fundraising efforts, the district has decided to host a little fundraiser of it’s own. We are selling crewneck sweatshirts for $20. They are gray with navy blue lettering and you can see a picture of both the front and back of the sweatshirt. Also, if you would like to order online, click HERE and fill out your club information. A paper order form is also available for you to fill out and should be in the Spring Mailing that you receive at your school. Remember that every dollar raised counts!
I cannot wait to see you at Spring Convention to celebrate our totals raised for eliMiNaTe, Mended Little Hearts, UNICEF and all of our other preferred charities!

Do you love Key Club? Do you want to see want goes on outside of just your club? Do you want to be more involved? If you answered yes to any of these you may want to consider running for a district board position at this year’s district convention. District convention is going to be April 19th-21st in St. Cloud this year, and I recommend that each club sent at least two clubs members, this way each club will have two delegates to vote in the new district board. As the convention comes closer your club will be sent more information about elections, contests, and other important information. There are many positions on the board that you could run for if interested and more information will be sent out as the convention approaches. General facts about the positions are:
-Each region has a Lieutenant Governor. They are the ones that send out newsletters, visit clubs, plan district convention, attend district board meetings (every three months), and a few other tasks as well.
-The District Secretary is another position that you could run for. The secretary also sends out newsletters to the district board and the club secretaries. They manage the district directory of contact information, they attend board meetings, plan district convention, manage club reports, keep track of club information and dues reports, and are a part of the district executive committee.
-Another position is District Webmaster. They manage and update the website, attend board meetings, send newsletters to the district board, plan district convention, and are a part of the district executive committee.
-District Bulletin editor is another position as well. They write the articles for the Minndak quack, are a part of the district executive committee, attend board meetings, advertise different events (Like District Convention), and other tasks as well.
-Finally is District Governor. The governor is in charge of the entire district, they write newsletters, run district board meetings, maintain contact with the international trustee, attend the leadership convention, choose a district service project (this year it is mended little hearts), they are a part of the district executive committee, and much more.
If any of these positions interest you or you have questions about them contact your LTG and think about running! Being a part of the district board is an amazing experience and I highly recommend it! Click here for forms!
