Circle K Update

In the beginning of the 2001-2002 school year there was a lot of publicity about a new club at Cabrini called Circle K. Over the past few months most of that talk has died down. What has the club done during the fall semester and what do they plan to do in the future?

The president of Circle K, Jesse Gluckman, had the idea to start the club. He shared this idea with the club’s vice president, Catie Garofalo. He explained to her that it is an international service club that is a branch of the well-known Kiwanis club.

Although Circle K is in its first year at Cabrini, there are numerous colleges in Pennsylvania who participate in this club such as: Drexel, West Chester, Penn State, University of Pennsylvania and many more.

The members of Circle K have done many activities so far this school year. They have worked in soup kitchens, held fundraisers, collected money for the victims of the Sept. 11 tragedy and they hosted a hoedown at Cabrini to raise money for a handicap horseback riding camp.

Although Circle K prides themselves on their work in the community the club does not only work for the community, they also plan fun events for the group. They hold dinners, go to movies and go bowling so that they can all stay connected and have some fun.

As of now there are 22 members. The only requirement to become a member of Circle K is to pay $25 for dues.

Circle K meets every Tuesday at 8 p.m. in the New Residence Hall. They change the day and time of the meetings every semester to accommodate everyone.

The club is excited about a trip that they are taking to a convention in Pittsburgh, March 22-24. This convention is set up to unite all of the Circle K clubs in Pennsylvania.

Garofalo said, “Our main goal of this club is to get people involved even if it is just coming to one event that we have. We try to have fun and do some services for those less fortunate.”

Circle K is trying to give back to the community by helping different people with different needs. They do not just want to help one type of person. They want the opportunity to help everyone that they possibly can.

In the future the club plans to continue their current projects as well as start a tutoring program for children.

If anyone is interested in Circle K contact Jesse Gluckman (President), Catie Garofalo (Vice President), Lisa DiFabio (Secretary) or Jon Zeminski (Treasurer).
