HAPPY NEW YEAR! 
Our club responded to the rallying cry:  IMUA! Forward...there is no turning back!  We accomplished a lot in the first half of this Rotary year!  We inducted NINE 9!! new members:  Emma Miyaki, Jon Brunhold, Peter Ehrhorn, Michael Malaghan, Tomoko Malaghan, James Pierce, Sharon Moriwaki, Fred Brooks, and Alejandra Rodas!  In July our club participated in the Genki Ball Ala Wai Clean-Up Project with the Eco Rotary of Kakaako.  We collected school supplies for keiki at local schools and the Waianae Vet Center and we got down and dirty helping Rotary‚Äôs Centennial Park in Waikiki.

We welcomed medical professionals from Ukraine and welcomed members of our Japanese sister clubs who supported us in our fabulously successful Extravaganza fundraiser in October at the Oahu Country Club! 

Later in November, together with the AOK foundation, Evan Knight ED, we constructed and assembled yard furniture for the Waikiki Community Center.

We provided a wonderful Thanksgiving lunch for seniors at the Center. and participated as hosts in the Salvation Army lunch at Blaisdell.

For the keiki we collected for the Marines Toys for Tots while our Youth Service Chair taught keiki how to help in the community with a beach clean up.
 
We partnered with Rotary Sunset in inaugurating an Interact Club at La Pietra School for Girls, with Elaine Batacan as the school's mentor for the group.
 
We had inspiring and informative speakers

Our service year ended with our partnering again with the Salvation Army and Metro Rotary in the Angel Tree giving event. 

We ended the year having FUN, as it is always fun at the Waikiki Rotary, with a Christmas Celebration!

and this New Year: Look out for the RUMMAGE SALE at Waikiki Elementary School Saturday,  February 25!
We acknowledge Punahou School for the photograph "Rhythm of the Strokes."
