The Kiwanis Club of Elizabethtown met on Tuesday and discussed chartering a Key Club at East Bladen and West Bladen High Schools.

Kiwanian Dr. Lisa Bryan said East Bladen High School already has a Keyettes group with Jennifer Hair serving as the group’s advisor. Bryan suggested the Kiwanians assist East Bladen with obtaining a charter for their group and work towards obtaining one for West Bladen High School.

Bryan said that obtaining a charter for the group includes the banner and all of the necessary materials the club will need and a bell. She said the club must have a minimum of 15 members to be chartered. Last year, East Bladen’s Keyettes group had 31 members.

The Kiwanis Club voted to move forward with assisting East Bladen High with obtaining an official charter for their Keyettes Club.

Bryan said at West Bladen, there is no existing Keyettes/Key Club. She said in order to establish a Key Club there, the school will need to identify an advisor and have a minimum of 15 students in order to be able to establish a charter.

Dr. Bryan also said there is a package the Kiwanians can send to parents of Key Club members inviting them to come and join the Kiwanis Club. Kiwanians Daine Smith, Bruce Barbour and Johnny Anderson also volunteered to assist with the effort.
