Club Updates

Chief Paul Ferreira was named to the Police Chief’s position by the Hawaii County Police Commission on December 8, 2016, assuming the role on December 30, 2016.  He chose Kenneth Bugado, Jr. as his Deputy Police Chief.  We were honored to have them introduce themselves to our Club.  The Police Chief and Deputy are honorary members of the RCHB.  We offered our club as a source of assistance.

It's all about helping people get back on their feet with a job.  Steven Harris explained Goodwill Hawaii's Supporting Employment Empowerment (SEE) Program and how local business owners can benefit by employing one of Steven's clients. 
 
Articulate and passionate, Jazmin Bronco, made our day by giving us hope that our youth are in good hands at the Boys and Girls Club of the Big Island, and that their program is very worthy to receive our fullest support.
Most of us donate money to the Polio Fund.  Our own Trevor Rodrigues has donated himself.  Trevor joined a Rotary mission to Nigeria and Senegal to assist with vaccinations.  Trevor had witnessed the sufferings of polio victims first hand when he had lived in India.  Trevor described a typical day in the life of a Rotary volunteer.
Rotary International sets a monthly theme.  The theme for this month is Rotary Foundation.  Many of our newer members are not fully aware of the breadth and depth of the Rotary Foundation.  Our Rotary Foundation chair, Alan Okinaka, provided an informative overview of RF's mission and focus.
