President's Message - Capsun M. Poe, President 2016-2017
Aloha Rotarians and Friends:
First and foremost, congratulations to President-Elect Courtlin Holt-Nguyen. He successfully completed the President-Elect Training Seminar at Far West PETS in San Jose last week. This means he is now certified to take office as our Club President on July 1. Pictured below, with District Governor-Elect Nalani Flinn awarding his certificate of completion. And yes, it was in paper and not PDF! :)
And finally, there's some good news. Several people have asked about our D5000 aloha shirts. District Governor Clint Schroeder just confirmed that more stock is available. So if you don't already have a shirt (or two), you can order them here.

Matthew Griffin is a 2001 United States Military Academy graduate commissioned into the Field Artillery. Between 2003-2005, Griff deployed four times to Iraq and Afghanistan with 2nd Ranger Battalion as a Company Fire Support Officer. He planned and participated in over 100 special operations direct action missions. After departing the military in 2006, Griff worked in the defense sector that eventually led him back to Afghanistan. After witnessing the positive effects of economic growth in conflict areas, Griff co-founded Combat Flip Flops with a fellow Ranger and began the mission to manufacture peace through trade.
