Key Club President Samantha Calamari Speaks to Kiwanis About Key Leader Weekend
The Kiwanis Club of Rockland received an overview of the experiences of local high school students at the recent Key Leader weekend, and the New England District Key Club convention, from Oceanside East High School student and Key Club president Samantha Calamari. Calamari prepared a power-point presentation to show the activities at the two events, which are designed to teach leadership and life skills. Calamari's presentation occurred during the regular weekly Kiwanis meeting held at the Samoset Resort on November 12. Calamari is shown after the meeting with Kiwanis member and long time Key Leader adviser Jane Thompson of Warren, [left], and Kiwanis president Amy Pease of Union. It was noted at the meeting that Thompson was also the adviser when Pease served as president of the Key Club when she was a student at Rockland District High School. Key Club is one of several Service Leadership Programs sponsored by Kiwanis clubs. The Rockland Kiwanis group also sponsors a Builders club and a K-Kids club, in addition to the Aktion Club of Knox County, a fully-chartered Kiwanis club for disabled adults. FMI: kiwanis.org.
