On the weekend of April 5 the Jonathan Law Key Club traveled to Springfield, Mass., for the Annual New England District Convention.

This year the Law Club had a very successful year, receiving numerous awards for its school and community service.

The club was led by co-presidents Lorenzo Maltes and Drew DeRubeis.

Advisor Theodore Boynton said, “I could not be more proud of these two young men. They set numerous goals after last year’s conference and worked together to motivate their club to achieve these goals.”

The club received a number of group and individual recognitions throughout the weekend where over 1,000 high school students gathered for the annual conference. The club received first place recognition in the Silver division for its monthly reports, and the single service award for its work with the Salvation Army, where the club raised close to $5,000.

The individuals who received awards were Drew DeRubeis, outstanding officer and for his essay titled ‘How do people recognize you are a Key Clubber;” Ryan Siddall for his monthly club newsletter, and Max Slusky received the prestigious Sandy Ninninger Award for the “Ideal Key Clubber” in New England.

The club also received a second place award for its relationship with the Milford Kiwanis Club, which sponsors the club each year.

The Key Club works very closely with the Kiwanis Club throughout the year, at the Oyster Festival, poinsettia and wreath sale, Easter flower sale and pancake breakfast, to mention a few.

The Kiwanis Club provides the Key Club with transportation to the convention, snacks for each room, pizza at the end of the night and a dinner Saturday evening prior to the award assembly.

Boynton received the Advisor of the Year award.

Next year the club will be led by co-presidents Jacque Jallif and Jake Miller.
