Key Club Requirements:
All Key Club Members are expected to attend every monthly meeting. 40 service hours will need to be completed by the end of the second semester; 15 services hours are required for the first semester; if those first ten hours are not completed by the end of the first semester, then the member will be removed from the club.
Monthly meetings are held the first Thursday of each month in the library at 7:45 AM and 3:50 PM. To reduce distractions and to insure that those who are counted present for a meeting are are actually getting all of the information presented there, members who are more than 5 minutes late will not be admitted to the meeting. The meetings are vital to club members because projects are introduced and questions about them can be asked, information is passed out, donations are taken up, and upcoming events are announced.
