Club Updates
Important thing comes first. There is no club meeting on Wednesday, October 9. If you come to HYC then, no one would welcome you. 
 
Thank you so much for pouring your time, talent, expertise and passion into Oktoberfest. I convince most guests enjoyed beer, food, wine, music and distinct atmosphere.

Rotarians Steven Jacunski, Richard Cunningham, Mike Carroll, Marlene Norton and Junichi Noumaru participated in the Conversational Partners at the Hawaii Community College on June 21, 2019. Rotarians mingled with international students in an IEP class and made conversations with them. Some students just arrived from their country to Hilo a couple weeks ago and study hard to improve their English skills.

Junichi Noumaru stopped by at the open table by The Rotaract Club of East Hawaii (UH Hilo) where the president, the vice president and the secretary were promoting the club to the fellow students. As of my visit, 27 students signed up to join the club. The club does activities almost every weekend. Good job!
 
Immediate past president David De Luz, Jr. offered me (Junichi Noumaru) to talk at the Galaxy Forum held by International Lunar Observatory Association (ILOA) on August 17, 2019. The theme of the forum was "Astronomy from the Moon, and Hawaii 21st Century Business & Education Communities." Steve Durst, the founding director of ILOA introduced the project and told that the International Lunar Observatory or ILO-1 will be launched and will be landed to the south pole of the moon soon. I learned the Rotary helped build the ILOA's office building in Waimea.

This week's guest speaker was Del Green, former District
Governor and member of Rotary Club of Downtown Honolulu. He
was the D5000's representative to the 2019 Council on Legislation
and keep us up to date about what's going on at Council on
Legislature and about how we need to update our by-laws. Del is
also the chair of Rotary International 2020 Convention in Hawaii.
Some major takeaways of his presentation were for rotarians to
have perfect engagement rather than perfect attendance, dues
will continually increase $1/year, and make-up meetings have
been extended to within one year.

This week's guest speaker was Keith Okamoto, Manager-Chief Engineer of the County of Hawaii Department of Water Supply. Keith is also the most recent past-President of the Hilo Rotary Club.  Keith noted that he was more nervous than usual when giving this presentation due to the fact two of our club members in attendance,  David DeLuz Jr. and Julie Hugo are current members of the Water Board, while Art Taniguchi, also in attendance, is a former Chairperson of the Water Board.
