  2. 2. SERVICE WOLFPACK PRESSSACRAMENTO HOMELESSBy Erika Mettke On May 21, 2011 I had the opportunity to volunteer atHomeless Connect in Sacramento. My job was to assist the home-less to the Housing Stations that was provided for them. It feltgood to see many of the homeless get temporary or permanenthousing. Many of the homeless walked out of Housing Stationwith a big smile on their face. I received so many words of appre-ciation that I felt like I was making a huge difference. To me thiswas one of the most meaningful service projects I have participat-ed in. I felt I was improving so many lives and was able to reachout to the homeless and give them hope.Kiwanis bike shopBy Boris Zhang On June 11, 2011, Univer- had fun with the hula hoops sity of Nevada, Reno Circle K and game, but was surprised by TMCC Circle K went to the the young girl who could Sparks Kiwanis’s grand opening of manage 5 hula hoops at once. their new bike shop.

  4. 4. SERVICE WOLFPACK PRESSDistrict summer service social (dsss)By Kristen VanCitters, Cynthia Uba, and Christine Bonuel your favorite part(s) of dsss? My favorite part about DSSS was meeting a ton of new CircleKers! We rarely get to see the southern schools at events, prettymuch only at FTC and DCON, so meeting all of them was awesome!DSSS was filled with opportunity to bond with other members overservice projects, laser tag, workshops, board games, and so muchmore. We represented Nevada and Capital well and everyone wasvery impressed that we made the trek down to So Cal! We woke up pretty early on Saturday and all headed out to an awesome service event, where we helped clear the path leading to a preserve. This event demonstrated how amazing at teamwork Circle K‟ers can really be. The most memorable part of this day for me was presenting a workshop; it was about being healthy and being a hardworking member of Cir- cle K. It had a great turnout, people loved it! DSSS is one of my favorite events ever. My favorite part of DSSS was all of the social aspects of it. One day we did a photo scavenger hunt at the Fashion Valley Mall. My team, „Team Woo!”, won the first part of the challenge, but we were unable to complete the second part: finding our District Gov. Brett Butler who was hiding somewhere in the mall. Another one of my favorite parts? Singing “I‟ll Make a Man out of You” to pass the time during the service project in the Mission Valley Preserve. The most shocking thing that happened, though? My ranking 3rd out of 39 Circle K‟ers in laser tag, haha! It was lots of fun; I‟m looking forward to our next district event! TURN TO P. 13 FOR MORE pictures from dsss!4 nevadacirclek.webs.com
