Lilian's Corner

Since New York City entered phase 1, I have been taking more walks around my neighborhood. On that note, this upcoming Monday, New York City will enter Phase 2! Glad that so many more stores will be opening up, I can finally eat some of the food I have been craving since quarantine started.
Here's a picture I took during my walk

Fun Facts:

This month's horoscope is Gemini (May 22 – June 21) and Cancer (June 22 – July).
Did you know June is the month with the longest daylight hours of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, and shortest in the Southern Hemisphere?
 June’s birthstone is the pearl, the Moonstone, and the Alexandrite.
Let's get to know one another! 
If you can travel anywhere in the world where would you go and why? 
I want to go to Dubai because it's one of the best skydiving locations and the longest ziplining in the world! I am afraid of heights but the view is nice.

Liberty Division Updates #1

———- Forwarded message ———
From: Maggie <maggie.cheuk@nycirclek.org>
Date: Sat, Jun 20, 2020 at 20:16
Subject: Liberty Updates #1
To: <board@nycirclek.org>

LTG Introduction

Hello everyone! My name is Maggie Cheuk and I'm serving as the Liberty Lieutenant Governor for the 2020-2021 service year! I'm a senior on the pre-med track at Hunter College and I'm majoring in biology.
 
This is my fourth and (maybe) last year in Circle K, so I really want to give it my all this year and serve you all as best as I can! I know most of us have met during our LOT sessions but I hope to get to know you all even better during and after quarantine!
My Current Goal
I know that we're all dealing with COVID-19 as best as we can in regards to our clubs. More than anything, I want to be able to make sure that you guys receive all the support you need from me and from the rest of the district.

With times as unsure as these, it can help to make a template for the rest of the service year! Even if you don't follow it word for word, you can use the template as a guide and a placeholder for ideas (as well as a place to "steal" ideas from your fellow clubs in Liberty!)

CHALLENGE: Fill out the service year calendar template with your E-Board! I'll go over them with each club in our first Council. 
Feel free to ask me any questions you have!

Service Year Calendar Template
District Goals
These are our 2020-2021 goals for the service year:
Interclubs: 18/300
K-Family Events: 8/120
Fundraising: $2,770/$15,000
Service Hours: 895/10,000

These are this year's District Project and Governor's Project:

  • District Project: Combating COVID-19
    • COVID-19 is a novel worldwide pandemic that is expected to affect us for months to come. However, this doesn't mean that the world can wait until it's gone. Even after we the world regains a semblance of normalcy, the aftereffects of COVID-19 will be felt for awhile. This project is dedicated to supporting people impacted by COVID-19 with as many means as possible. 
 
  • Governor's Project: Life's Basic Necessities
    • Food and water are some of life's most basic necessities – they are things that we often take for granted but there are millions of people around the world who struggle to receive these necessities. This project is dedicated to spreading awareness for those people and raising money for them to afford life's basic necessities. 
Upcoming Events

Our annual CKIx International Convention, was unfortunately canceled due to the ongoing pandemic this year. However, CKIx has now become “CKI NEXT”, a free virtual conference! In addition, you get to CHOOSE what sessions you want to attend so you can choose whichever sessions best fit your schedule!

When: July 18-19, 2020
Deadline: July 6th, 2020 @ 12:00PM EST

What is CKI Next?: CKI Next is the first ever virtual CKI convention in which CKI members from all over the world can come together and participate in many leadership, fellowship, and service sessions. There will be many keynote speakers, networking sessions, training workshops, fellowship activities, and awards given to members and clubs who have performed outstanding work this past service year.

Hello Western Division!!

Hello, everyone! My name is Lilian Zheng and it’s an honor to be serving as your 2020-2021 Western Division Lieutenant Governor! I am currently a sophomore at University at Buffalo studying psychology on the pre-med track.

GOALS

This service year, I plan on having more interclubs in order for the clubs within our division to have a stronger bond with one another, increased membership in our division to bring in more people who are passionate about giving back to our community and increased service hours through more service opportunities. All so that the clubs in our division can develop a greater sense of unity and grow stronger together.

A stronger club means having members who are here for the service, fellowship, and leadership which we will all work towards this service year.

Lilian's Corner

Welcome to Lilian's Corner! Where we get to know one another. I will be sharing fun facts and interesting events that I attended here! I will also be asking questions so feel free to answer! 

I am a big food lover and love to take photographs of food and sceneries. During this quarantine period, I started to have a lot of food cravings and attempted to cook different recipes.  Some of them turned out to taste better than it looked. Some food is not possible to make at home so I just make it my goal to go eat them again once quarantine is over.

Without further ado, here is a food picture I took:

Fun Facts:
– This month's horoscope is Aries (March 20 – April 19) and Taurus (April 21 and May 21)
– Did you know there was a pink supermoon on April 7th this month?

Let's get to know one another!
What is your horoscope and have you been doing during quarantine or looking forward to doing once everything is over?

Last but not least,
GOOD LUCK ON UPCOMING FINALS!

Yours in Service,
