Just Display It

Key Club Service Fair Project
 Blog by Marcia Miculek

While enjoying a productive lanyard workshop at Bryan High School with the campus Key Club on March 24th, their sponsor approached Vickie about a special project that the students would like to present at their convention in April.  They would like to support Erin's Dream Lanyard's effort to raise funds for research to find a cure for pediatric cancer by creating a special display board as their service fair project.  
The Texas-Oklahoma District Key Club convention was is Dallas, TX on April 24-27 and over 30 high school clubs had project displays. This beautiful display of Erin's Dream Lanyard fund raiser project reflected her story, her battle with neuroblastoma cancer, and her innovative approach to help other children.  The Bryan Key Club was honored to be able to make this their special project presentation and answered many questions from the other clubs.
Lanyard making was one of Erin's many projects and her friends have continued her work making artful and whimsical lanyards.  All proceeds go to finding a cure for childhood cancer.
The Key Club is a service-oriented club sponsored by the Kiwanis Club International, so they were glad to represent the idea of community service with the other clubs and hope that they will also join in this important cause by each planning to have their own Erin's Dream lanyard workshop.
