Hello Western Division!

Please click "View Entire Message" on the bottom for the full contents
Hello, everyone! I hope you all have been doing well! With everything going on in the news and the ongoing pandemic, I hope everyone is safe and sound. It has been really inspiring to see the change brought about by the Black Lives Matter Movement. I encourage you all to still show support even within your clubs while being respectful. Please reach out to me for NYCKI guidelines. For more information on how you can support the Black Lives Matter Movement click HERE for more resources.
With more states entering the phases of reopening, many events will still be happening virtually. This month, I will be meeting with club presidents and attending upcoming CKI events that I will be providing the link to them below! Make sure you sign up for those events if you have time! They are definitely worth coming to! Big shout out to University at Buffalo for being the first in the Western Division to complete over 30 hours of community service hours, 2 interclub, and 1 K-family event! Keep up the good work everyone!

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.
