Key Club continues to serve community

By Amanda Crowl, staff writer

Members of the Saegertown Key Club are working around the clock to benefit their community through improvement projects and community service. As active and present as Key Club is, not everyone knows what they are doing.

Key Club members and Allegheny students volunteered at the Meadville Library in February.

On the second Saturday of each month, Allegheny College holds a “Service Saturday.” For three years, members of Saegertown’s Key Club have joined with Allegheny students to help Meadville’s less fortunate.

Recently, Saegertown Key Club created a miniature library in Saegertown’s local laundromat as part of the ‘Youth Serving Youth’ service project. This year’s project theme is ‘literacy.’

In addition to providing books to community members via the library, Key Club will be donating ten new books to Saegertown Elementary’s library, whose funding has been cut significantly in recent years.

Key Club also hosts the popular ‘Hat and Pajama Day’ at the high school. Students pay one dollar to wear a hat, or pajamas, or both. The money raised during events such as these directly fund community projects.

“I am glad to give back to the community,” said club vice president Mykenzie Connally, who believes each of Key Club’s projects make a positive impact on the community.
