Whittell Key Club President Lorin Kline and members Hannah Harris and Kristen Kline recently attended a Kiwanis Club of Lake Tahoe luncheon. They were accompanied by faculty advisor Lindsay Wines and Brian Mehrer, the new athletic director.

Kiwanis presented a check for $500 to the Key Club. The money was earned by members of the Key Club, who helped with Air Fest 2002. Also helping, but unable to attend the luncheon, was Key Club member and treasurer, Sasha Silver. The money will be used to support the club’s community service activities.

President Kline spoke to the sponsoring Kiwanis about the club’s current and future projects. They are raising money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation through sales of raffle tickets. Future projects will include a bike trail clean-up and a canned food drive. There are 30-plus members of the Key Club and membership is open to all students enrolled at Whittell High School.

During the past year the club donated more than 2,000 service hours in 43 projects serving their school as well as the community. The Kiwanians congratulated the Key Club members on their many worthwhile activities and their rapid- fire approach to getting things done.
