GRACE LIVING CENTER HOLIDAY LIGHT TOUR

Hey Key Clubbers! December is going to come and go fast so you’ll want to make sure you get your service hours in! One way you can do that is on December 14th at Grace Living Center from 6:00pm-8:00pm. ¬†There will be 13 buses of the residents and we need volunteers for all buses just to talk and engage with the residents and enjoy the lights! It’s an easy and super fun way to get hours!

Remember if you go, you will need to submit your hours on the website AND email me a picture you took of yourself while serving and/or yourself with one of the residents. Email me at emily.turner75@jenksms.com if you’re interested!

Thanks guys and have a great month! ūüôā

Halloween Volunteering at the Aquarium

Interested in volunteering at HallowMarine?  Spots are filling up fast, so sign-up ASAP!  Details are below.  If you have questions, e-mail amoney@okaquarium.org

 

October 27-31, the Oklahoma Aquarium will be transformed into a spooky (but not too scary!), Halloween adventure. Children will be coming to the aquarium to collect candy in their Halloween costumes while getting to see some marine life.

 

We need volunteers to help us from¬†6:00pm -9:30pm¬†on all five days (You will need to arrive at 6 and stay until¬†9:30)! This means that if you volunteer at HallowMarine for two nights, then you have earned all of your required hours for October! Volunteers will be assisting with children’s games in the Pee Wee Pirate Zone,¬† the candy trail, helping man our inflatables and clean up.¬† This event is always a lot of fun with an in-house DJ and great pirate themed Halloween decorations. We will be needing approximately 35 volunteers each evening.

 

Feel free to wear a costume if you’d like, but not too scary. Only one slot per evening please.¬†¬† We are not able to move volunteers to other areas in the short period of time you are there each evening.¬†¬†¬† We CANNOT accept walk-ins the night of the event.¬† To sign-up go to¬†http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0f45ada729a4ff2-hallowmarine1

Some ways to Serve at Grace Living Center this week!

Hello Key Clubbers!

With halloween coming up, and the month of October quickly coming to a close, you need to get your hours in, and here’s some ways to do that:
 
-Make Happy Halloween Cards for the residents and stop by after school to hand them out and talk to residents! (you will get hours counted for the time you were there handing them out AND the time it took you to make them! Remember, it doesn’t have to be anything really elaborate – just a sweet note or happy picture, you can also make one and then make copies of it!)¬†
-I got emails from people interested in playing music for the residents so come in right after school this week, bring your instrument, and come play in the area where they eat dinner (they eat about 4:30 everyday so this is a perfect time to come)
 
REMEMBER: 
There is a sign in sheet at grace to record your hours. You must document them there AND ALSO log them online on the jenks key club website to get your hours counted!
TAKE A PICTURE OF YOURSELF VOLUNTEERING WITH YOUR CARD OR INSTRUMENT YOU’RE PLAYING OR JUST WITH ONE OF THE RESIDENTS!
Also if you can shoot me an email to let me know when you are going to go volunteer this week!
for the Remind 101 text @gracekey to the number 81010

September Hours!

Happy Monday, Volunteers!

 

You guys did an amazing job this month; we had a pretty good amount of hours for this month! Let’s keep the great work up!

Remember, today is the last day to turn in your hours. If you, by any chance, forgot to sign in one day before volunteering, just email me the date and the approximate beginning and ending time.

One last note, Key Club does not complete forms for Distinguished Service Graduate. Forms for those can be found outside of Mrs. Nunelee’s room on the MASC second floor. Those hours will be due the tenth of each month.

Next month, ¬†October, will be filled with some sweets and spooky fun! I’ll keep you guys updated.
