Club Updates
What if . . . the horrifying trembling lasted seconds but seemed like forever.  The electrical lines are down.  Homes have toppled.  Neighbors have gathered in the streets.  Some are trapped or injured in their homes.  911 cannot immediately respond; too busy with other emergencies.  What to do?  Whether it be an earthquake, hurricane, or other disaster, our capable first responders cannot respond to every emergency in a mass disaster.  William (Bill) Hanson of the Civil Defense Agency briefed our club on how a community can be trained as a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) to properly respond while waiting for the professional first responders.
 
 
Healthcare with heart.  Introduced by Alan N., Dr. Stefan Harmeling conveyed his vision "of an integrative and holistic medical center to improve equal access to quality healtcare and transform the health and wellness of our Hawaii Island community."  The existing Aloha Nui Family Practice, located at 69 Lanihuli Street, would be expanded to an 8200 s.f. facility under a new name, The Dan Harmeling Medial & Wellness Center.  This facility would enable attracting and retaining  an integrated staff of physicians, family nurse practitioners, nursing staff, and business administrators.  Dr. Harmeling explained his approach to healthcare and how this facility would improve the health and wellness of our community.
 
 
Education can be one of the greatest equalizers if our children, regardless of income, are given quality support and encouragement to realize their potential.  Quality education can also strengthen our workforce and economy so that families and communities thrive.  To further this quest, the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) International collaboration has made a dedicated commitment of $1M per year to support science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education on Hawaii Island through the creation of The Hawaii Island New Knowledge (THINK) Fund at the Hawaii Community Foundation (HCF).  Introduced by our astronomy club member, Junichi N.,  Andrea Furuli, HCF's Senior Philanthropy Advancement Officer, accompanied by advisory Board member and Bank of Hawaii Senior Vice President, Roberta Chu, explained the opportunities offered by the THINK Fund.
 
 
Save the date:  October 7, 2016, 5:30-9:00 p.m., Sangha Hall.  Planning the Oktoberfest 2016 is in full swing.  David D., this year's chair, updated the members in a Club Assembly and encouraged members to sign up for the various tasks to make this event a success.
 
 
Bundled and spirited, our members manned Station #5 of the August 20th Volcano Run.  Members included leader Katie Lambert, Richard Cunningham, Mary Begier, Tom Witthans, Steve Jacunski, William Knight, Miyuki Lee, and Kevin and Dayday Hopkins who encouraged the runners and kept them hydrated.
