By AG Ray Paler, Foundation Chair 2016-2017
The Rotary E-Club of Hawaii has gotten off to a great start in the way of our Rotary International Foundation contributions for the 2016-2017 year. This report is focused on our club's contributions to the AFSHARE (Annual Fund SHARE) and EREY (Every Rotarian Every Year) efforts. Our contributions to AFSHARE this year is related to what our prorata share of the D5000 District Grants available to our club in three years. Also, the same contributioned counts towards our EREY qualifying and recognition or citations as a club.
Our Annual Fund Goal for the 20162017 year is $1,600 and to date, we have contributions
currently at $1,060. At this time our club has an Annual Fund Per Capita of $66.25. In order for our club to qualify for EREY this year we need to reach or surpass the $100 Per Capita threshold and have 100% membership contributions to AFSHARE. We are close and we need our membership's help through contributing. We have four members that have contributed this year that counted towards our EREY qualifying for 2016-2017. We should all consider contributions that we are comfortable with.
A point to remember is that the more we contribute to AFSHARE in our club's name today, the more grant money will be available to our club in three years. Although our Annual Fund Goal was set at $1,600 for this year, we have surpassed past goals every year so far. This achievement is credited to our membership.

From Rotary Club of Hawaii Kai (President Kim Chalekian):
The Rotary Club of Hawaii Kai and the Rotary Club of Kaneohe Partner to Help Families Pay for College
Community Service Group Commits to Support Scholarship Fundraiser in First Partnership
The Rotary Club of Hawaii Kai recently enlisted The Rotary Club of Kaneohe in a remarkable partnership, whereby both groups commit to fundraise for Ducky Dash, an annual community fundraiser to benefit college scholarships for local students and re-matriculating adults.
Money raised from Ducky Dash will enhance rotary community service projects, including activities with Kaiser High School Interact Club, an educational local health fair, and a school supply drive. In addition, proceeds from the fundraiser will be re-invested into the Hawaii Kai community.
Upwards of 6000 “adopted” ducks will be placed in the Hawaii Kai Marina where, with the help of the wind and tide, the ducks will dash/float to the finish line. The first 25 ducks will be counted as winners. Last year, The Rotary Club of Hawaii Kai raised enough funds to reward six scholarships to deserving students.
“I’m really excited about the growth of Ducky Dash. This year should be twice as large,” said Kim Chalekian, President, Rotary Club of Hawaii Kai. “In addition to the Rotary Club of Kaneohe, we’ve also gotten support from both the Hawaii Kai Chamber of Commerce and the JR Chamber”.
Ducky Dash will be held on the 24th of September 2016 at the Marina behind Hawaii Kai Towne Center’s stage (6700 Kalanianaole Hwy). Entertainment begins at 11 am, with the duck race to follow at 1 pm.
For more details about Ducky Dash, visit rotaryclubofhawaiikai.org.
Rotary Club of Hawaii Kai
The Rotary Club of Hawaii Kai was chartered on September 17, 1973 with 24 members. The Club’s first community service project was providing two-year subscriptions to various magazines for the new Hawaii Kai Library periodical room. Projects completed in 2014-2015 include Rotary Saves Lives, Rotary Gives Thanks, Garden project at Lunililo Home with the Interact Club of Kaiser High School, and The Niu Valley Community Garage Sale. It is fondly called the “Biggest Little Club in Hawai’i”. Visit rotaryclubofhawaiikai.org for more information.
From Rotary Club of Windward Oahu:
The Rotary Club of Windward Oahu is performing a community service project at Kainalu Elementary School on Saturday, September 24, 8am-12noon. As a result of this project, our club will receive a grant of $10,000 that we have designated for Family Promise Hawaii (FPH). FPH provides temporary housing for homeless families trying to get their lives back on track. For more on this organization, please visit their website http://www.familypromisehawaii.org
We need to have at least 25 Rotarians with us to complete this project and secure the grant for Family Promise Hawaii. The projects at Kainalu Elementary School are simple and fun–painting benches, painting hopscotch and 4-square grids, installing student art tiles on a column, repainting a basketball backstop, repaint a yellow walking line around campus, and planting 4 small trees in planters.
In appreciation of this project, the Kainalu School PTA will be providing lunch for our volunteers.
If you could possibly help us with this project, we would truly appreciate it!
All contributions support our service projects and ability to provide programs. Please consider making a donation today.
Donations large and small are appreciated.
