JANUARY 28, 2024 ~ FIRST SERVICE PROJECT OF THE NEW YEAR!
It was a lovely Sunday morning and volunteers from the Rotary Club of Hilo came together as “Friends of the Kuhio Kalani’ana’ole Centennial Park” to put forth their efforts, connect with the aina, give back to the land and improve the beauty of the park that Rotary began many years prior. Among the Rotarians and jr. Rotarians who participated in the effort were Beckie Marshall, Kari Hoffman and Fred Fischer. Also in attendance dance as supported of the effort were Jeremiah and Brayden Leonard.
FINAL MEETING OF THE YEAR ~ DECEMBER 15
 
So much happening at our busy December 15 meeting at the Yacht Club!
 
A new board of Directors for the July 1, 2024 to June 30, 2025 Rotary year was voted in by the membership!
 
$25,546 was awarded to the Friends of the Children's Justice Center of East Hawaii, the Hilo Medical Center Foundation and the 'Ohana Wa'a Laulima. All moneys were part of the net profit from the 2023 Hilo Brewfest held in July of 2023.
 
A truck full of new toys was collected from the members... going to the Salvation Army's Annual Toy Drive.
 
A nice selection of Teddy Bears was also gathered for the "Friends" to distribute to Police cars. The goal is one Teddy Bear for each active Police car so that officers would have a bear ready to hand to a child who is being removed from a toxic home environment or may be suffering from an injury due to an accident.
 
EACH YEAR, ROTARY HAS SUPPORTED THE SALVATION ARMY WITH BELL-RINGING... This year at Walmart on Saturday, December 2
Alberta Dobbe, Bev Heikes, and Benson Medina were ringing the bells and watching the kettle fill to the brim! Thanks to all the Rotarians who showed up in shifts to support the Salvation Army.
2 NEW MEMBERS WERE INDUCTED ON DECEMBER 1 MEETING... RCOH CLUB'S 103 ANNIVERSARY!
SHANE HANLEY (l) from the Hawaii Police Department and Terrianne Brown (r) from the Hawaii Community College, were inducted during our December 1 meeting. Welcome aboard!
