Members at Proclamation

This week is National Key Club Week – November 4 -8. The QND Key Club was presented with an official Proclamation from the City of Quincy. Key Club Proclamation

Key Club is the oldest and largest service program for high school students. It’s a student-led organization that teaches leadership through serving others. Members of the Kiwanis International family, Key Club members build themselves as they build their schools and communities. Today, Key Club exists on more than 5,000 high school campuses, primarily in the United States and Canada. Key Clubs also exist in many Caribbean nations, Central and South America, Asia and Australia. The QND Key Club was chartered with Kiwanis International in 1959. It is one of the oldest continuously operating Key Clubs in the country.

Under the sponsorship of the Quincy Noon and Breakfast Kiwanis Clubs, the QND Key Club gives high school students the opportunity to participate in the oldest student service organization in existence. The QND Key Club has volunteered its services to the Adams County Red Cross, the Salvation Army, and their school. Key Club members are invited to co-sponsor projects with Quincy Noon Kiwanis, Breakfast Kiwanis and Circle K. In conjunction with adults they learn the need to return service to the community which supports them. Members work together to provide services for their school and community.
