All East Hawaii Group Meeting

  • No meeting for June 4. The next meeting will be on June 11, 2020 at 12:00 PM.
  • RI President Mark Maloney appeared at the meeting on May 28.
  • He never thinks himself as the president who drew the short straw although he had to give up the RI convention in Honolulu that he might have planned for so many years. But he wants to make the Rotary Virtual Convention break the records in the number of participants.
    Mark is very frank and amazingly friendly. He attended the meeting from his law office. He moved his camera and showed us the backpanel for the virtual convention.
