Key Club is unlocking the pathway to community service for Bear River students.

The Key Club is a community service-based organization and the high school branch of the Kiwanis International Foundation. The club meets every Tuesday in advisor Jeff Carrow’s room at the beginning of lunch.

“Key Club provides community service opportunities for devoted and dedicated high school students who understand the importance of helping those less fortunate and the environment,” Carrow said.

According to Mr. Carrow, the club has many events planned throughout the year.

“The river clean-up was a biggie,” he said. “It gets the club rolling in mid-September and we’ve been doing that for 15 or 16 years.”

Key Club is actively involved in many charitable organizations.

“The annual ones are Operation Christmas Child, Shoebox Collection, Adopt-A-Family, and the See’s Candy booth for Nevada County Child Advocate,” Mr. Carrow said.

Mr. Carrow also discussed the Bear River Talent Show.

“(The talent show is) one of the biggest events each and every Bear River School year,” he said. “We raise money for the big four charities: Nevada County Child Advocates, KVMR, Hospitality House, and SYRCL.”

Senior and Key Club President Grace Tortorici said she has plans for the club. Tortorici hopes to expand this year by adding the Cinderella Project to the Key Club’s long list of charitable organizations.

“I feel very strongly about community service,” she said.

Tortorici strongly encourages club membership.

“Through Key Club, I believe we can better the school and community,” she said.
