Centennial Park Update

 
The five Rotary Clubs of East Hawaii spent Saturday morning (1/31) at Kuhio Kalanianaole Park, better known to us as Rotary Centennial Park, working on cleaning out more invasive plants and trees and opening up the view plane.  Thank you Mary Begier and James Leonard for being the point people for RCHB. 
 
If you haven't seen the park lately, arborists cut down several ironwoods to expose the beauty of the Bay.  A round of applause is due Mike Robinson, RC of Hilo, for doggedly moving this project forward.
 
From RCHB, attending were: James Leonard, Mary Begier, Alan Okinaka, Richard Cunningham, Bettye Williams, Allen Novak, Mike Carroll, Tom Witthans, Lance Forsythe, Roy Takemoto, James Tyrin, and Barbara Hastings.
 
Mike Robinson came upon the sad discovery early Saturday morning that thieves had wrenched off and stolen the plaques.  See photo below.
