2013-2014 UCI CKI Membership Development and Education Chair
We are very lucky to have the kind of medical care that we have in the U.S., especially when it comes to taking care of newborns and the mothers who give birth them. Unfortunately, in many third world countries, Mothers and babies alike are at risk of contracting the disease known as “Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus.” This disease usually has a 100% mortality rate, and is contracted due to either poor immunization practices within hospitals and the use of unclean hospital equipment. The sad thing is, this could all be easily prevented by providing these hospitals throughout the world with the proper hygienic tools and equipment.
Fortunately, organizations such as Circle K work hard every year to raise money for project eliminate, which provides babies and mothers alike with vaccines and clean medical equipment.
While this week is Eliminate week, I ask all of you to keep the mothers and babies of the world in your hearts and mind not just for this week, but for years and years to come, and to help Circle K and others alike in the fight against Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus. Whether big or small, your donations will matter, and lives will be saved, and babies and mothers alike will be given another chance to smile Happy Eliminate week everyone!
-Sam Barke, UCI CKI President

A message from one of UC Irvine Circle K’s Membership Development & Education Chairs: Angelina Chanthanouvong!
Hello! Hi! Bonjour! Are you a Key Clubber? Kiwins member? Someone simply interested in service, leadership, and fellowship? Well I have a wonderful club that I’d love to introduce to YOU! :D
College is a time of discovery and growth. You’re able to meet new people, venture out and enjoy new experiences, and create new memories in the process—there’s so much to do and so little time! You have so many choices and so many clubs that you are able to join, so the big question here is: What exactly sets Circle K apart from any other service club?
But wait…let’s answer an even more important question…
WHAT IS CIRCLE K?
Circle K is THE LARGEST collegiate community service club IN THE WORLD! Our members have a passion for service and making a difference through the service that we do.
Circle K is the collegiate branch of the Kiwanis Family. Our Kiwanis Family includes sponsoring Kiwanis Clubs (adult version of Circle K), as well as other clubs such as Key Club and KIWIN’S (high school service clubs), Builders Club (middle school and junior high students), and K-Kids (elementary students).
Circle K is based on the three tenets of SERVICE, FELLOWSHIP, and LEADERSHIP!
SERVICE: There are so many service opportunities that you can get involved in that fit with your own personal schedule. From weekly service projects, weekend projects, to even district wide service projects, every event makes a difference and plays an impact on our communities. Through service, we are able to make a difference in our community.
LEADERSHIP: A unique thing about Circle K is all of the leadership opportunities open up not only to board members, but general members as well. At your home club, you are able to chair events, join committees, or even apply as a board member for the next term. But wait! Your leadership isn’t just limited to your own school! You can apply to host workshops at district events and even serve alongside district board members by applying for district committees. There are so many ways to grow as a leader as well as many opportunities to showcase your capabilities as a leader!
FELLOWSHIP: Another thing that sets Circle K apart from other clubs on campus is the crazy amount of energy, spirit, and enthusiasm that we have in our members. There are so many amazing people you can meet in the process of being in this club, whether it is a divisional, district, or even international event. Not only will you get involved with a Circle K club at your own school, you’re also welcomed into a divisional, district-wide, and international family of leaders. Through service and social events, we are able to foster lifelong friendships, create strong bonds with one another, as well as create impacting memories.
As our 2013-2014 Cal-Nev-Ha District Governor Sean Dylan Nguyen puts it:
"You come for the service, you stay for the fellowship, and you aspire to be a leader."
So next time you see a Circle K club or member on your college campus, don’t be shy and stop by to say hi (oh hey, that rhymed, hehe)! Attend a service project! General meeting! Social! We’re more than happy to have you check out and join our Circle K family! Better yet, ask us how we feel—you’ll be in for a great surprise ;D
We serve, we lead, we are a family! We are C-K-I! ♥
If you have any questions, feel free to ask! Hope to see you around!
What Makes a Good Member: Bravery
Standing up for what is right can be the hardest thing in the world. It takes true talent, skill, and, above all, bravery to speak up for others, or else to attempt to do something new.
In my past four years in Circle K, I’ve noticed—whether its at conferences and conventions, service projects, meetings, or even on Facebook—that the people in this organization are quick to try new things, stand up for what they believe is right, and step outside their comfort zone.
It takes a special kind of bravery to try new things, as well as to do the right thing.
Bravery can be applied to what we do each and every day. How do you uphold bravery in CKI?
