"Kiddieland was opened today exclusively for handicapped kids. Our members were operating rides and greeting everyone with smiles. This day gave these kids a chance to interact in ways that aren't normally given to them. Everyone had a great time and special thanks to Golden Valley Key Club and the Kiwanis Club of Greater Merced for helping us make this day memorable for these kids and their parents. We can't wait for another opportunity like this. It was a huge success!"

"Today was just great; everyone had a good time. I enjoyed helping out the kids and it was rewarding to see them having fun at the park!”
"Unfortunately, we have no photos from this District Council Meeting. Aside from the bad news, there is a lot of good news! Our Editor, Jaymee Illescas, received an award for Officer of the Month because of her positive attitude and dedication to her club. Also, Merced Key Club was chosen as the Club of the Month, we are so proud of all the hard work our members put in to make us worthy of this award. The DCM was hosted at Kiddieland and we were served delicious burgers by some of Golden Valley's members and advisers. One memorable thing from this DCM was the icebreaker, we were split into four groups and we were supposed to mingle and learn a minimum amount of facts about our teammates, although it seems simple it was a really great way to kick off a great DCM. Thank you again, Golden Valley Key Club!"
