Kiwanis Builders Club is ready to Serve

Monet Acevedo, Kaylynn Quach, and Vivian Liu

An informational meeting for the Garvey Kiwanis Builders Club was held on October 20 with the approval of ASB. The Builders Club was active at Garvey around 2014 when students served the campus and local community by volunteering their time and labor to help others. In past years, Builders Club activities included caring for animals at shelters, cleaning the beach, reading to elementary school students, and building floats for parades like the Rose Parade in Pasadena.

You are welcome to join the Garvey KBC by attending club meetings every Monday and Thursday in Room 403 (2:45pm- 3:30pm) unless noted otherwise. The KBC has elected club leaders and are planning upcoming service projects to help Rosemead and the San Gabriel Valley. Mr. Cheung and Mr. Naka are the club advisors.

At the first meeting 60 students expressed interest in joining the club by signing the Club Petition form including 44 seventh-grade students and 16 eighth-grade students.

Club Officers: Chloe Crowley, Soraya Duque, Caden Nguyen, Kaylynn Quach, Monet Acevedo

During Thanksgiving vacation a number of club members joined Heal the Bay at Playa Del Rey beach. Together with 600 volunteers we gathered over 300 pounds of garbage in two hours to keep our beaches clean. Jenny, Liz, and Natalie served as team leaders on the project. At the Rosemead Community Garden near Duff Elementary School, the Builders Club joined Cultiva LA to learn about how plants grow and participated in a garden service project. Mr. Naka organized and supervised the event.
