Hello Northern Circle K!
It's Alexandra with our second LTG Update of the service year. Below, you will find a To Do List as well as an Idea Board that you can use in continuing with service, leadership, and fellowship while we're stuck at home. 

Election Report Form (ERF)
WHO: President
WHAT: Allows the District to contact club officers for training, resources, etc.
HOW: Fill out this form if you haven't done so already

Service Hour Report Form
PLEASE distribute this form to members so service hours can be tracked!
WHO: Everyone
WHEN: 1st of every month (so today)
WHAT: Tracks the service hours of members, especially since our service is being done independently right now.
HOW: Fill out this form

Monthly Report Form (MRF)
WHO: Secretaries
WHEN: 5th of every month
WHAT: Updates district on club service hours and events.
HOW: Fill out this form. If people fill out the Service Hour Report Form responsibly, you can gather any service hours completed by your club members at this link (look under responses).

For clarification on what constitutes a service hour, and other CKI definitions and events, check out this resource.

Fundraising Report Form (FRF)
WHO: Treasurers
WHEN: 5th of every month
WHAT: Updates district on club fundraising.
HOW: Fill out this form

Filling out these district forms helps our club get the recognition and awards our hard work deserves at the end of the year! 

Committee Member Applications
WHO: Anyone interested
WHEN: May 11
WHAT: Get involved in the NY CKI District as a member of one of the committees. There are a diverse range of committees, so you can join one that suits your skill set and passions best. Fun way to get more involved with CKI without too much time commitment.
HOW: See this form for the descriptions of the different committees, and then fill it out if you're interested.
(I will definitely be joining one or two, so let me know if you want to talk if you're unsure about applying!)


Zoom isn't just for classes. You can have virtual meetings to continue service, leadership, and fellowship (much needed since I'm sure a lot of people are going a little stir crazy in isolation). 

Now that we have so much time on our hands, it is the perfect opportunity to start your own project. Fundraise for a cause you believe in. All the work you do still counts as service hours and money fundraised by your Circle K club (just make sure to report it using the Service Hours Report Form).
Some examples are doing the 30 Hour Famine to fundraise and fight against hunger worldwide, or the Step to Accept Challenge where you can raise money for every step taken for GiGi’s Playhouse, a nationwide network of Down Syndrome Achievement Centers (run/walk/bike with them June 6 for their virtual Step to Accept).
And of course there are so many places in need of donations due to COVID-19. Just look up Corona donation and you can find myriad foundations — just choose the one that speaks the most to you and start a fundraising campaign.

Please share these resources with all your club members. Make sure they know they can still be making a difference even while we are social distancing. In these uncertain times, service and fellowship are as important as ever.

That's all for now!
Thank you for taking the time to read this far! I am wishing everyone luck with their upcoming finals, and hopefully the summer starts off well. I am available for any questions, concerns, or just conversations you want to have. Let me know how quarantine is going. Please do not hesitate to reach out!
Yours in service,
Alexandra Hill
Northern Division Lieutenant Governor, New York District of Circle K International
