President's Message - Capsun M. Poe, President 2016-2017
Aloha Rotarians and Friends:
My apologies, our Club is a little late in getting our elections for the 2017-2018 Rotary Year completed. Per our Bylaws, the President, President-Elect, Secretary, Treasurer, and Sergeant-at-Arms are elected by the Club and chairs are appointed by the President. If you are interested in running for any of these positions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday at 12 noon so that we can begin voting over the weekend.
Our District has two big fundraisers coming up. Rotary Club of Windward Oahu has a Koolau Shrimp Paina event on March 11, with tickets going for $65. I plan to attend this event. Also, Rotary Club of Ala Moana has their Crab Fest 2017, an annual event that is sold out every year. Tickets are $95 and include all-you-can-eat Dungeness crab. I’ve been attending this one since before I joined Rotary; it’s always a hit. Also, proceeds support Ala Moana’s service projects and Kapiolani Community College.
Finally, read on for information about the first Rotary Means Business event of the year, on February 16.

Speaker: How to Skip the Small Talk and Connect with Anyone
Published on Feb 15, 2016Kalina Silverman wanted to see what could happen if she approached strangers and skipped the small talk to have more meaningful conversations with them instead. She made a video documenting the experience. The stories she heard and the connections she made proved that there's power in taking the time to stop and ask people to reflect on the questions that truly matter in life. Since then, she has continued to work on expanding Big Talk into a movement that inspires and enables people to connect with one another on a deeper level. Learn more about it at www.makebigtalk.com and visit Kalina at www.kalinasilverman.com This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
