OHS club finds key to happiness at Lemay Child and Family Center

OHS’s Key Club helped out the community on Sept. 22 when members took a trip to read to children.

Key Club journeyed down to Lemay Child and Family Center, a preschool and early childhood development program, to spend time with and read to kids whose parents are unable to pick them up right after school. These students provided a fun and interesting way to pass the time, and the kids really enjoyed the contact with the members.

The kids at the Child and Family Center were ages 2-5, and so most are unable to read for themselves. Through the service of Key Club, the children were given an opportunity to hear stories they might not otherwise get to read due to parents’ busy schedules.

The experience was equally benefitting to the Key Club members. One student, Josh Nahm (11), said, “It was a great experience, and it felt good to be able to hopefully have an impact on the kids.”
