President's Message - Capsun M. Poe, President 2016-2017
Aloha Rotarians and Friends:
As today is the beginning of May, it means my term as your Club President is in its final two months. Before I started my term, my goal was and continues to be to have our Rotary E-Club of Hawaii add value to your lives. For some, that is professional contacts. For others, that is service projects. And for many, it's the many friends we make in our Club and throughout the Rotary world.
One small way we like to add value is the list of Our Members under the About tab on our website. If you haven't seen it or haven't looked at it for a while, please give it a look. For our existing members, if you want anything updated (your photo, classification, etc.) please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. For our new members, we would LOVE to have your photo and information up as soon as possible. Please email me with a photo (square preferred), classification, and what website URL you would like your link forwarded to (for when people click on your photo to see info).
Finally, I really appreciate this week's video about Shelter Box, which is deployed around the world by Rotarians. I've seen this set up and it's amazing how large and how much help can fit in one box.

Speaker: Rotary and ShelterBox Help After Peru Flooding
By: Rotary International Staff | Courtesy of Rotary.org
Rotary International has been working with its partner ShelterBox to provide relief to flood victims in Peru.
Since February, flash flooding and mudslides have damaged and destroyed thousands of buildings, including homes, schools, and churches in several countries in western South America.
Rotary and Rotaract in Peru have reported widespread destruction there. A ShelterBox response team is working with local authorities and Rotary to assess the damage and determine how to help people in the northwest region of the country.
The floods in Peru have killed more than 100 people. According to the Los Angeles times, relief agencies estimate that 700,000 people have been left homeless. Heavy rains are expected to continue for the rest of the week.
Where flood waters have receded, they’ve left behind a thick layer of mud. This can lead to serious health problems and irritation of the eyes, skin, and respiratory tract, ShelterBox officials say.
