The SWHS Key Club was started to give students an opportunity to help others in their community. Several students recently gave their time to the Community Center to help clean the facility for those who use it. They cleaned the ramps in the skate park, the kitchen area and all facilities in the second floor of Community Helping Hands/Gateway Center, under the supervision of Pastor Amy Rohler.
With the help of parent organization Kiwanis International's Lakewood Branch, Key Club provides community service in various ways-from helping at St. Susan's Soup Kitchen in Jamestown to walking in the Walk for Juvenile Diabetes. The SWCS Key Club also works in conjunction with other school clubs and organizations in their outreach to the community. They participated in Walk 4 Paws to assist the Chautauqua County Humane Society, helped at the Busti Apple Festival with Lakewood Kiwanis Club, been bell-ringers for the Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign, helped serve dinner to senior citizens before the school play and are researching Soles4Soles and Pennies for Peace projects for the future. The Key Club is also planning on helping again with the Walk for Diabetes in Bemus Point this month.
