The East Meadow Kiwanis Club celebrated Key Club Week by inviting representatives from each of its three Key Clubs down to the weekly Kiwanis Meeting. The East Meadow Kiwanis Club proudly sponsors the Key Clubs at East Meadow High School, W Tresper Clarke High School and Sacred Heart Academy.
After making a short presentation on the history of Kiwanis International's high school level branch, Kiwanis Club President Harry Demiris followed the long held club tradition of handing his gavel over to one of the Key Club Presidents to run the Kiwanis Meeting. According to a cycle, the task fell to East Meadow High School Key Club President Diana Barsky.
The Kiwanians were on especially good behavior as President Diana presided over their meeting. President Diana only had to issue a few fines before the Kiwanians were praising her for the outstanding control she had from the podium.
Clarke Key Club President Dan Korman reported on his Key Club's recent service projects. President Dan was followed by EMHS Secretary Melissa Allen who reported on her club's activities.
Unfortunately, Sacred Heart Academy Key Club President Maureen Condon could not join in the Key Club Week celebration.
Happy dollar after happy dollar praised President Diana and took shots at President Harry's lack of control. President Diana closed the meeting to random shouts of "Four more years!" from the Kiwanians in a poorly disguised last chance dig at President Harry.
Of course, this was all in a sense of fun and not a reflection on the respect the club usually shows President Harry.
