Key Club gets bigger every year

Rebecca Meldron, Reporter

If you are in need of a club, Key Club is one everyone is joining. Key Club is drastically increasing in size. When President Emily McNicholas (’19) first became involved in Key Club her freshman year, there were 30 people. Then her second year, only 15 to 20 dedicated members, last year there was about 40 to 50 members. This year Key Club has around 90 members. McNicholas said that the advisor, Laura Blama, had to move the club to the library because there are so many people this year.

Emily McNicholas (’19) was the secretary last year and this year she is the president. This year’s vice president is Sydney Powell (‘20), the secretary is Katie Martino (‘20), the treasure is Midori Day (‘20), and the historian is Krishna Hirpara (’20).

Hirpara (’20) has enjoyed the club so much that she wanted to be more involved so she became an office. Hirpara (’20) is the historian so she keeps the records of what they are doing and the events they have. Hirpara (’20) joined Key Club because she thought it was a good way to help out the community and gain service hours at the same time. She also enjoys the events they do.

If you are interested in joining the Key Club, the Club meets on Thursdays period 4. Sign up fast because the spots fill up.

According to Krishna (’20), the main thing Key Club does is “fundraise money to give to the less fortunate…. And we help out the community.”

They do activities such as decorating and painting pumpkins they then give to nursery homes, which they will be doing soon so if you want to participate in the fun join now. They also decorate doors for teachers. The teachers pay five dollars to have students decorate their door for in school service hours.

Key Club also does activities like puppet shows and crafts. They are volunteering at the honey harvest festival this year, where they do things like face painting. They host a Christmas party for moms and children in abusive relationships, where they have food, drinks and games.

They have fun, help out the community, and gain service hours for school. You can join with your friends, do some good and have some fun all at the same time, and do it in school, so it doesn’t take away from your time outside of school.
