President's Message - Capsun M. Poe, President 2016-2017
Aloha Rotarians and Friends:
Sorry about the glitch we had with this message not saving correctly. Since it so late in the week, let me just say that I'm glad to report that we will have six of our members attend the Oahu District Assembly this Saturday. We will report back to everyone on what we learn.
Please read on for updates on lots of projects and events going on with Rotary in the coming weeks.
Fundraising Goal - Hospice Hawaii
“Bring Hope, Reduce Fears and Impact Lives” by alleviating pain and suffering and enhancing the quality of life of patients and their families on Oahu, Molokai and Lanai, regardless of their ability to pay.
I would like to kindly ask for your help. If you're in the position to donate and would like to help my team accomplish our fundraising goal of $1000, please follow the link below to our fundraising page:
Any donation, large or small, will help alleviate the stress and burden many families, who opt for hospice care, may face.

Where others see problems, Rotary members see solutions. Our 1.2 million members see opportunities and possibilities in their communities around the world. Here are some of the stories of our People of Action.
For the past 60 years, the Rotary Club of Bainbridge Island in Washington, has held an annual auction and rummage sale that raised more than $7 million.
The long-term success of the auction has made it a cultural event. Proceeds of the event help almost every corner of their community, including feeding the hungry through the local food bank, buying cribs for infants in need, funding a school robotics program and helping seniors with dental care.

Rotarians at Work Day - April 29th, 8:30am -12 noon
We would love to have you join us for a morning of fun service side-by-side with the students. Those of you who were there last Spring please come and see the garden we built last year and new aquaponics enclosure.
The work will be a mix of indoor and outdoor. Some gardening, probably some indoor painting. We will be power washing some areas as well. Also for the carpentry minded we'd like to build a lightweight moveable wheel chair ramp so that the garden can be accessed by all the students.
If you want to volunteer or would like to come see what we will be working on please let me know.
