President's Message - Capsun M. Poe, President 2016-2017
Aloha Rotarians and Friends:
Last week was a busy week for Rotary E-Club of Hawaii as we held our Dictionary Project distribution to over 200 third graders at Kahuku, Kaaawa, Laie, and Hauula Elementary Schools over two days on Oahu's beautiful North Shore. This is the only event that we do throughout the year that is funded, coordinated, and staffed entirely by our Club. This event was another success (our third year!) and it would not be possible without everyone's help and support:
This is a last call for PRLS (Potential Rotary Leaders Seminar), happening this Saturday for Oahu Rotarians, but you still have time to sign-up for this event geared toward new members and members who may be interested in being a Club or District leader. You can register here ($35 fee)
If you aren't attending PRLS, we'd love to see you at the Rotary Connecting for Good event at the Boys & Girls Club of Hawaii's Hale Pono Ewa Beach Clubhouse instead. (Details after clicking Read More).
Have an awesome week everyone! Mahalo!

From PP Garry Yee:
I have the tickets for the Kahala Mall "Very Merry Event" shopping discount pass.
Please let me know how many you would like to either sell and purchase for yourselves. The tickets are $5 each and will give you discounts at the participating stores.
This is one of the ways our club raises funds for club operations. We get to keep the entire amount raised. We are very thankful to Kahala Mall for this opportunity.
You will also have a chance at the Grand Prize Drawing for a night at the Kahala Hotel & Resort plus a Buffet Breakfast for 2 at the Plumeria Beach House. There are also 2 $50.00 Kahala Mall Gift cards up for grabs.
Let's sell the 100 tickets we have!
Here is more info from Kahala Mall:
Kahala Mall is having their 3rd annual Very Merry Event (VME) This will be an exciting weekend event (December 2 – 4) which gives non-profit organizations in Hawaii the opportunity to raise funds for their prospective mission.
