Written by SV Weekly Staff: Last weekend, the Dexter Key Club jumped on a bus with the Key Clubs from Dover, Greenville, Guilford, and Milo. The Key clubs headed out at 8:30 on Friday morning for the 59th annual New England District Key Clubs Convention. At the Convention, the clubs participated in caucuses, panels, dances, and other fun activities. Each club was able to send two delegates to take part in deciding the 2008-2009 New England District Board. All of the clubs in Division II got in their early Bird dues on time. Our Lt. Governor, Amelia McDermitt was awarded the Distinguished Lt. Governor Award. Each of the clubs received awards at the Convention, with Dexter being awarded 10.
