Key Club is a volunteer organization, an International Club, that is sponsored by the Kiwanis family. Messalonskee’s Key Club is sponsored by the Waterville Kiwanis organization. Our goal as Key Club members is to assist organizations or groups in their events. Many of our students have volunteered at the Homeless Shelter, craft fairs, Children Home For Little Wanders, Salvation Army, Family Violence Programs and local schools. Our club also helps out individuals that may need assistance with yard work or other projects that they are unable to do.
Members learn leadership skills by running meetings, planning projects, collecting dues and holding elected officers’ positions.
A minimum amount of 30 services hours is required for credit. To be eligible to attend the New England District of Key Club Convention in the spring a member must have 30+ service hours. Fifteen minutes of credit will go towards your total number of service hours every meeting you attend.
To receive a certificate members must have 10 hours; 30 hours or more members receive a certificate and pin.
To become a member you must pay a fee of $13.00. Dues are collected so that Key Club can offer many services, service program material, leadership training, conventions and conferences, professional development, fellowship opportunities, member-support information, KEYNOTER magazine, club mailings, and literature on member development, membership recruitment, public relations, and club officer training. The money goes to New England District of Key Clubs and Key Club International so that we can all receive the information listed above.
*The early bird dues deadline is the middle of October. Ask an officer for an exact date. Please try your hardest to get your money in by then! We will keep reminding you at the meetings!
*Also, don’t forget to turn in your activities contracts if you have not already filled one out because you are in sports or another club. See the Key Club bulletin board on your way up to the third floor.
